Privacy with a Personal Touch

Situated on the quiet side of Algonquin Park, our traditional log cabins line the eastern shore of Hay Lake. With six fully-equipped private cottages that are spaced well apart, Hay Lake is the perfect place to disconnect from the city and reconnect with nature.

Even when we are full, we are never crowded. There is no noise. Just the tranquil sounds of nature to soothe you.

Our 16-kilometre-long lake has plenty of structure and shoreline to fish or explore by boat, canoe or kayak. And we are only a 15-minute drive from Algonquin Park’s East Gate if you want to explore its trails, museums and programs.

If fresh air, peace and quiet - and the occasional call of a loon - sound like the ideal getaway, Hay Lake Lodge & Cottages is the perfect escape.

Things to Do

"The place, the people, the activities, the adventures, and the scenery combine to make Hay Lake a special and unique experience that has drawn our family for over thirty years. Hay Lake allows us to escape the noise and rush of our daily lives, and reconnect to a slower, quieter, and simpler way of life."
