Hi My husband and I stayed in the Maples Lodge Cabin celebrating our quiet honeymoon from Oct 21 - 25 2013. So nice to arrive and find a bottle of wine, and a card to celebrate the occasion from them! We were very pleased with everything. We loved the cottage with it's wifi, satellite TV, 2 bedrooms, gas woodstove, BBQ,...

My husband and I went in May to Blue Moon for our honeymoon and arrived at a beautiful spot set on the lake. We found it to be such a low price for such great accommodations. We were greeted with a beautiful gift from the owners to congratulate us on our wedding. Despite their being a number of cottages on...

We spent four days at the Island View cottage in the early part of September. We were happy to find the loons still in the lake. It was our 5th stay at Blue Moon and I am about to book another stay for next year. Every year we find that some little improvements have been made to the cottage and...

My husband and I just returned from a two-week vacation at the Sunset cottage and it couldn't have been more perfect. It was a beautiful setting on a quiet lake. The cottage was very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. We watched the cleaning 'crew' preparing a cottage next door for the incoming renters - they cleaned for several...

We stayed at Blue Moon on August 1 - August 9th at the Shangri-La to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. I'd like to start my review by letting everyone know what a pleasure it was to deal with Kevin and his assistance in making our reservation. Upon arrival, we were welcomed with a beautiful cottage and a bottle of wine...

We visited the High Noon Cabin at the Blue Moon Retreat a couple of weeks ago during our driving tour around Eastern Canada. Our whole stay was simply amazing! The cabin itself was clean, cozy and with a touch of luxury-I miss that hot tub! The views were heavenly. We enjoyed BBQ's on the deck and watching the sun setting...

Our first stay at Blue Moon Retreat was about 5 years ago and we've been coming back every year since then - we now refer to our one week stay at Blue Moon as 'Cottage Week'. What drew us to this place 5 years ago keeps us coming back. The owners and staff: Freindly, courteous and helpful. They know people...

First visit to Shangri La and we're determined that it won't be the last. Cannot praise this piece of paradise enough. The cottage was immaculate, the facilities were first class with everything we needed and as the brochure said we were to bring just ourselves and food. How true! It was a home from home. The views were beautiful, the...

Hands down the nicest cottage we have stayed in. Our choice was "High Noon" which is very near the beautiful lake...loved the wrap around deck and breathtaking view. So many photo ops with the pretty island sunsets! We enjoyed having every comfort you could think of (hot tub, satellite tv and lazy boy chairs for the boys, dishwasher and laundry...

I stayed with 3 11 year old boys in the Sunset cottage for 5 days. First of all, the cottage had everything you would ever need and more. Complete kitchen including blender, toaster etc, towels, linens etc. Nice not to have to bring everything. We brought our dog and having a fenced in deck was wonderful. Spectacular views of the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We invite you to unwind, relax, reconnect and rejuvenate at our small cottage resort on peaceful Purdy Lake which is located between Bancroft and Barry's Bay on the quieter, southeast side of Ontario's Algonquin Park. Our all-inclusive, 'cut-above', resort has 1,500 feet of frontage on a largely undeveloped lake. A pair of loons nest on the island in the centre and their mournful cries are music for the soul. With just 6 housekeeping cottages on 20 acres you will be sharing this slice of the sparsely populated Canadian Algonquin Highlands with only a few other guests and the local wildlife. Many of our guests come for weekend or mid-week getaways during the even quieter fall, winter and spring seasons. ... more   less
