Algonquinesque Setting...: Ensconced on 5 acres in a beautiful ravine bordering on the majestic Magnetewan River that runs out of Algonquin Park and joins together several lakes (Perry, Hazard etc.) for approximately 42 kilometers; this is ‘heaven’ to those who appreciate a remote, “Algonquinesque” setting. Enjoy fishing, swimming, canoeing, hiking, wildlife, quiet lifestyle.
Find yourself in a large two-story modern designed cottage and enjoy an upscale ‘camping experience’. Woodstove and propane in combination to meet all your needs. The large windows throughout give you a panoramic view of not only the waterfront area but also the forest surrounding the cottage. Traipse down to the dock in the morning and sit there quietly to take in the beautiful setting of forest and environmentally protected marshland. If you are quiet enough, you will see a deer or otter or mink or beaver.
Blackberry connections work plus some cell phone as well.
Wildlife, Remote Setting: The early morning sun wrestles with the fog for rights over the river and you get to be front and center as the sun eventually wins.
Check website Explorer's Edge and Discover the West side of Algonquin Park For most visitors to Algonquin Park, entrance through the gates on Highway #60 is the preferred way to enter Canada’s favourite – and oldest – provincial park. It’s a beautiful route dotted with campgrounds, picnic areas, interpretive walking trails, a visitor centre, a museum, and an art gallery. For the folks inclined to a more rugged adventure though, you might enjoy heading to the west side of the Explorers’ Edge region – to the Almaguin Highlands – where you’ll discover Algonquin from a whole new perspective.
Algonquin’s west side is not just more adventurous travellers, it’s also a great destination for the gentle explorer. Folks can just pack an overnight bag and have everything looked after for them as well. Consider a guided canoe trip with Voyageur Quest and or trips that focus on understanding the wildlife of Algonquin Park, such as Northern Edge Algonquin‘s guided wilderness safaris. Guests on these experiences are taken to special locations by guides who live and work in the area, and often get to see parts of Algonquin Park that most adventurers don’t even know about.
