Read the Feb. 8/13 Toronto Star article about the Eco-Lodge and winter in Algonquin Park.

The Algonquin Eco-Lodge, located on the southern border of Algonquin Park (only 3 hours from Toronto or Ottawa), is a wilderness enthusiasts' dream! Summer or winter, there is always plenty to do and see at our wilderness lodge. With over 40 km of groomed trackset and wilderness trails inside Algonquin Park, the Algonquin Eco-Lodge is the best Algonquin Park lodge or hotel for cross country skiing, dog sledding, snowshoeing, hiking, and canoeing. In fact, we have one of the largest single trail systems in Southern Ontario, and offer one of the best wilderness experiences in Canada! And the fall colours are truly spectacular! Hiking our trails, or paddling a canoe on our private lake in the autumn is an unforgettable way to experience Algonquin Park.

Algonquin Eco-Lodge - a Summer and Winter resort

The Algonquin Wilderness Eco-Lodge was created to give you the best wilderness experience possible, while minimizing our impact on the environment. It has the feel and atmosphere of a European mountain lodge, and is one of the most secluded lodges or hotels in Algonquin Park. In fact, your experience begins with a leisurely 2.3 km walk, or cycle, or ski (about 25 minutes) through Algonquin Park to reach our front doors. Don't worry - your luggage can be transferred for you (optional).

This focus on the environment has resulted in the Eco-Lodge being selected the 2012 winner of the Ontario Tourism Sustainable Tourism Award!

Our Eco-Lodge is beautifully secluded amidst remote Algonquin Park forests, where even hydro lines and telephone poles can't reach. We are completely off-grid and yet, with the alternative energy we create from our waterfall (we use 100% micro-hydro electricity), the Eco-Lodge still provides all the finer comforts. Things such as indoor plumbing, hot showers, an outdoor wood-fired sauna, and even a carbon neutral hot tub (the only one in southern Ontario) heated by electricity from our own waterfall! And with 17 private bedrooms, there is more than enough space to comfortably hold 34 people.

If you are looking for a "Digital Detox" vacation, then the Eco-Lodge is the place for you! Since we are so far in the Algonquin Park forest that there are no phone lines, no internet service, and even cell phones don't work you are guaranteed that "work" can't get hold of you. You have no excuse now but to enjoy the company of your family and friends, play a board game with your spouse, or join the other guests toasting marshmallows around the campfire. So leave your laptops and blackberries at home, and bring that book you've been meaning to read!

All this, plus our extensive groomed wilderness trail network, a private 30 acre (12.5 ha) lake, and even a resident wolf pack, makes a visit to the Eco-Lodge an experience to remember, and one of the best ways to explore Algonquin Park.

New! For people looking for a private cottage rental we have an executive log cottage on Cross Lake.  It can sleep up to 11 people and is on a gorgeous, secluded lake.  75% of the lake is Crown Land.  www.CrossPaddle.ca

Watch the video about our micro-hydro project. This green energy
source is what makes the Algonquin Eco-Lodge unique. No other
lodge in Algonquin Park, or southern Ontario, produces all of their
own alternative energy from a waterfall. We even have enough of
our own "green electricity" to power an outdoor lakeside hot tub!
All while reducing our carbon footprint and being totally off-grid!
