Un-rough it in Algonquin Park

It's time for Arowhon Pines. Time to reconnect with what matters. To sit back and listen to your heart. To be inspired by nature. Time for that great book. Time to paddle an empty lake. Shaped naturally by the hills, lakes, and streams of Algonquin Park, Arowhon is just imperfect enough to be amazing. Amazing people, amazing food, warm fires. 

Arowhon is a living place full of personality – we offer authenticity, hospitality, and respect. We offer the simple elegance of comfortable, rustic accommodation, good food made from quality local ingredients, prepared with love, and the “luxury” of peace and tranquility in the wilderness where you can spend time with a moose, listen to a loon, canoe, swim and relax. We look forward to welcoming you.

Update August 10th, 2020

Besides the masks – ugh – (and even those are becoming the norm), things are running smoothly at Arowhon Pines.

We’re extremely happy to have made the decision to operate at about one half capacity, keeping Arowhon smaller, quieter and even more peaceful.

We confess that it took a few weeks of back office arguing to get things in place; it felt like we were operating a whole new different hotel. We would like to assure you that the kinks have been ironed out and the place is humming.

Some information to share ….

The food out of the kitchen is delicious and plentiful like usual, despite no buffets, with some guests complaining that they are eating even more!

Guests don’t mind spending a couple of minutes daily tidying their room… who needs new towels twice a day? We’re exchanging soiled for clean towels and glasses daily.

The Welcome Booth in the parking lot is a big hit, with Jenna, Anne Marie and the bell staff welcoming everyone and taking luggage to the rooms.

If you haven’t seen Edward, make a point of saying hello to him early in the mornings or between shifts. He ensures that everything is cleaned and sanitized in the dining room.

Lucy continues to steal shoes off the verandah, with a particular penchant for flip-flops.

Space at the resort is limited for the rest of the season. We’ve made the difficult decision to suspend meal reservations for outside guests in 2020 – we’re so sorry. We are looking forward to a busy 2021 so please make your reservations soon!

Guests are canoeing, kayaking, playing tennis and swimming. We’re all enjoying the warm waters of Little Joe Lake, the sunsets from our verandah and the night sky full of stars. There are loons and moose and rabbits and beavers all around.

The beauty of Arowhon Pines and Algonquin Park has not changed.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Virtual hugs (not welcoming you with a hug is the hardest part!),

and the Team at Arowhon Pines




We have decided to operate at one half capacity in order to keep Arowhon smaller and safer for all.

There is still some space for the summer and fall in rooms in larger cabins and in private cabins. Unfortunately, there is little family accommodation available for the rest of the season.

Please be advised that for this season we have suspended all meal reservations for outside guests – we’re so sorry, but look forward to welcoming you in 2021!
