    We'll come again

    We wanted to see the 'colours ', and visit Algonquin Park, a place we had regularly visited on Thanksgiving weekend when the kids were young. Now that we are past camping we looked for a place, and Colonial Bay seemed perfect. It was on a lake, close to the park , and not too costly. The kitchen allowed us to bring our own food which we always did as campers.

    A great place to stay!

    This facility is a small combination of hotel rooms and cottages run by a couple. We had a lovely stay and will go back when we are in the area. They understand the benefit of listing on hotels.com and treated us very well. The buildings are older but very well kept, with a full range of amenities. We asked for a second desk or work table and the owner brought it to our room immediately. There was a beach, nice lawn, picnic tables, barbecues, porches and chairs on the units and a fireplace complete with a log ready to go. Lots of love and care on the part of the owners evident everywhere.

    The property was exactly what we expected/anticipated. It’s on a lake with plenty of water sport vessels for use on the lake. We specifically loved the mattresses. They were super comfortable. The owners/operators were very friendly which added to the experience.

    A family run operation that impressed me. Beautiful location on Peninsula Lake with a sand-bottom beach and swimming area. Canoes, kayaks, and paddle boats are free to use by patrons, which we thought was a nice touch!
