2024 Rates & Info
Arowhon Pines is open from June 7 to October 13, 2024. We may open earlier for an exclusive wedding or business group.
Rates are all-inclusive and quoted in Canadian dollars. Rates include accommodation, three consecutive meals and use of the recreational facilities at Arowhon Pines. All guests receive a vehicle permit in order to explore Algonquin Park.
Rates quoted below are PER PERSON, PER NIGHT based on TWO PEOPLE IN A ROOM.
Single occupancy: Add 25% to the double occupancy rate.
Third adult in a room: 2/3 of the double occupancy rate. We would add a rollaway cot. Maximum occupancy in a room with adults is three.
Weekly stays: A full 7 nights of peace and tranquility includes a day “on the house”. Stay for seven nights and pay for six!
Children: Aged 12 and under sharing a room with 2 adults pay one half the double occupancy rate. Children booked into a room to themselves, no matter the age, are charged full adult rates.
Service charge and tax: Rates are subject to a 15% service charge (in lieu of tipping- please, no additional tipping) THEN 13% HST. The HST is calculated on the base rate plus the service charge.
Families: Parents must ensure that their children preserve the calm and quiet environment in the cabins, around the grounds (especially on the main dock) and in the dining room. We have limited “family accommodation”. We encourage parents to register their children for an early dinner at 5:30 pm followed by group babysitting until 8 pm while the parents dine. Children’s menu options are available at every meal.
Accommodation: Rooms in larger cabins have either one queen bed or two twin-sized beds — ideal for two people! Twin beds can be made into a “king”. We add a rollaway bed for a 3rd person in the room. Some rooms in our family accommodation, in addition to bed(s) for adults, have an alcove with bunk beds for children.
We guarantee specified accommodation for 4 or more night stays. For shorter stays, be assured that we try our best to fulfill your requests, but cannot guarantee.
Our Private Cabins and Rooms in Two-Room Cabins are very popular and book quickly, usually with week-long stays.
Private cabins all have king-size beds.
There is a fully wheelchair-accessible room with a ramp, wider doors, a “wheel-in” shower unit, and more.
Bathrooms have a walk-in shower or tub.
In your rooms, there is a hair dryer, locally made face & body soap and shampoo/conditioner (also available for sale), shower cap, two lifejackets (more are available in the office), a fan, extra blankets, and electric baseboard heat. Available upon request - iron and ironing board, raised toilet seats, and tub chairs. We're family here - if you need something, please ask.
Smoking: All rooms, lounges, decks, main dock, and dining room including the verandah are non-smoking. There are designated outside smoking areas.

Wine, Beer: Please bring your own wine to enjoy with your food — we’re not licensed. The nearest liquor store is 40 km away.
Drinking water: Lake and well water are treated and tested regularly. There is lake water in the taps in your rooms, perfectly fine for drinking. The best drinking water is from the tap located outside the office full of Algonquin Park well water — please bring your own containers and fill them up! This water is served inside the dining room and is used for coffee and cooking. We do not sell or provide plastic bottles.
What to bring:
Casual sporty clothes
Sturdy boots for walking and sneakers or sandals for the boats
No matter what the season, a sweater for cooler nights and rain gear. In September and October, bring a warm jacket.
Insect repellent for spring and summer
Atmosphere: We aim for a quiet and peaceful atmosphere where guests can explore and experience nature in Algonquin Park, read peacefully on the dock, swim, and relax undisturbed around the grounds.
There are no TVs or telephones in your room and no motorboats on the lakes (with the exception of our pontoon boat used for tours and emergencies).
Please be respectful of others at all times. We ask that there be no noise in your room or common lounges — sound travels far and fast in Algonquin Park. If you wish to socialize, please move to the Games Room.
We are busy in the summer months — there are more people here. If you wish total peace and tranquility, we suggest booking during the off-season — in the spring, early July, and early September. Often at these times, you will have the trails and lakes to yourselves.
Parents must ensure that their children do not disturb others — around the grounds, on the main dock, in the cabins, and in the dining room.
Wi-Fi and cell service: Arowhon is secluded from modern life. You will get cell phone reception the closer you are to Highway 60. The service is creeping up but still sporadic on our grounds. Many guests “jog” to the Crossroads, take a drive along Highway 60, or walk the White Trail looking for cell service. If you receive a signal or text, please keep it to yourself. Arowhon is a place to detach from the demands of technology. Nobody wants to see and hear people talking on their phones around our grounds or in the dining room, in the middle of Algonquin Park!
We do NOT provide Wi-Fi for guests. There is free Wi-Fi available at the Algonquin Park Visitor’s Centre or Dwight Library. It is best to plan to be incommunicado.
Power outages: We are in a remote area 8 km off the highway. Power outages happen and generally last less than 12 hours. There is an emergency lantern in your room and extra blankets. However, in extreme weather, longer power outages do happen as well. Please note that our kitchen and dining room remain operational and we will do everything to make you comfortable. Please see us in the office if we can do anything.
