Accommodations at the Edge are simple yet comfortable, a place to rest your head at night after a day of adventure, dreamtime, creativity, community, nature, and wonder.

They provide a range of options to meet the needs of guests participating in a scheduled program or group stay at the Algonquin Park home. You will be provided three nights of accommodation at Algonquin Park, Canada.

Canopy cabins

Sleep in the fresh forest air and rise with the birds as the morning sun lights up your cabin naturally. These wood and canvas structures are clean, dry, and nestled on a hillside surrounded by the lush greenery of the forest at the edge of Algonquin Park.

The double beds in the Canopy cabins boast comfortable feather duvets and colorful linen sheets on bunk beds. Some call it glamping or glamorous camping. The best outhouse in Canada just steps away features a tiled floor and composting toilet. Flush toilets and showers are located in Points North, just one-minute walk away.

  • Glamping-style accommodations bring you closer to nature
  • Comfortable feather duvets and colorful linen sheets
  • Bathrooms and showers located close by

Habitat cabins

Surrounded by the maple and balsam fir forest, these cabins were designed for year-round comfort. These well-insulated buildings are heated and available for year-round accommodation.

Osprey and Tamarack feature 2 single beds plus a loft with a double bed, topped with feather duvets and colorful linens. Washrooms and showers for these cabins are a short walk to the green-roofed building, Points North.

These cabins accommodate two to four guests.

  • Winterized, cozy wooden cabins
  • Feather duvets and colorful linens
  • Each cabin features a double bed and two single beds
  • Washrooms and showers are just a short walk away

Studio cabins

Year-round eco-accommodations in Algonquin Park, the Studio cabins feature spacious rooms with many eco-friendly features. Rooms feature a small en-suite bathroom with composting toilet and running water. Tranquility, Balance, Harmony, and Dreamtime are the premium accommodation options.

Each equipped with a double bed and single bed, these cabins are ideal for couples and/or friends. Studio cabins are heated year-round and used for the winter and summer retreat guests.

Dreamer's Hill, the new Ecoluxe Log Cabin, is available for guests seeking more comfort.

  • Comfortable feather duvets and colorful linen sheets on queen beds
  • En-suite bathrooms feature running water and showers (private for the first 3 bedrooms filled, semi-private for the other two bedrooms)
  • Each queen bed can be split into two singles if you prefer to share a room

Log cabin bedroom

The luxurious and comfortable log cabin is located a bit further from main programming spaces for optimal rest, and features en-suite bathrooms with showers. Each room’s Queen bed can convert into two twin beds, providing flexibility for solo travelers, couples, or friends.

The eco-luxe, colorful bedrooms in Dreamers’ Hill are their most comfortable rooms available (and their only accommodations featuring private showers – not an easy feat running on solar power!).

The bedrooms Amethyst, Labradorite, and Citrine come equipped with a 3 pc private en-suite bathroom with showers, while Jade and Sodalite share the fourth semi-private bathroom and shower.

Program

Imagine yourself experiencing the peace and serenity of nature with great company, while balancing your mind body and spirit on a yoga vacation getaway. This experience is a fine balance between a stand up paddling adventure and a yoga retreat at the Edge of Algonquin Park.

Begin, transform, or deepen your yoga practice with daily guided classes in the cradle of Northern Edge Algonquin’s eco-retreat. The gentle and understanding yoga and adventure facilitators will bring you to the edge to try something new, with stand-up paddleboard instruction for women and men of any experience level on scenic Kawawaymog Lake.

Standing at full height on a SUP board, you’ll enjoy once-in-a-lifetime views of everything from Algonquin Park wildlife to what’s on the horizon. It’s like walking on water! If you’re feeling adventurous, take your yoga off the mat and onto the board with an introduction to practicing yoga on the water.

A true quest for balance

Practice sun salutations as the mist rises on the water at the yoga platform. Challenge your core with warrior pose on stand up paddle boards and root with your tree pose on a small island in the middle of the lake, listening to breezes blow through towering white pines. In the evening, sweat your prayers in the wood

fired sauna; an ancient and universal form of self-healing, balancing the active yang practice of the days adventures with a restorative Yin practice.

Retreat location

Algonquin Park

Algonquin Park is often referred to as the Gem of the Ontario Parks system. Ontario’s oldest and largest provincial park, Algonquin, is often thought of as a National Park - perhaps owing to its original name - Algonquin National Park of Ontario (est. 1893). In survey after survey, Algonquin Park is continually listed 2nd (behind only Banff National Park) as Canadians' Most Priceless National Park.

Each year Algonquin Park hosts over 800,000 visitors. Most visitors stick to the Algonquin Parks Highway 60 corridor and check out the visitor center or hike a trail.

Guests at eco-lodges and resorts like Northern Edge Algonquin go off-the-beaten track and discover the magic of Algonquin on 3-4 day all-inclusive guided explorer packages.

Algonquin Park was originally only accessible by train from Toronto. Today, Algonquin Park is accessible by public transit with Ontario Northland, making this part of Algonquin Park (Access Point 1 - Kawawaymog Lake) accessible from downtown Toronto’s Bay Street station.

Sadly, the Northlander Train from Union Station is no longer in service, but their bus service still brings people to the park daily.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Search for “Northern Edge Algonquin” on your phone in Google Maps or Apple Maps.

Whether North or Southbound, you are recommended to stay on the highway until South River and exit via Mountain View Road. “Waze” in particular seems to direct guests on indirect and confusing logging roads.

Once on Chemical Road, cellular service will be interrupted but your GPS may continue to work — either way, keep your eyes peeled for our posted signage which should help to direct you.

Cancellation Policy

  • A reservation requires a deposit of 50% of the total price.
  • The deposit is non-refundable, if the booking is cancelled.
  • The rest of the payment should be paid 14 days before arrival.
