ALGONQUIN SETTING - REMOTE FEELING - NATURE RETREAT

Algonquin Park Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 plus bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 8 (families/nature lovers only please)

Comfortable battery/solar/generator powered cottage at the push of a button ensconced on 5 acres bordering on the majestic Magnetewan River that runs out of Algonquin Park and joins together several lakes; this is an upscale camping environment in a remote, 'Algonquinesque' setting.

Enjoy fishing, swimming, canoeing, hiking, wildlife, quiet lifestyle. When it rains, sit by the woodstove and read books from the library overlooking the sunken living room from the study upstairs. The skylights allow enough light in so there is never a dark, dingy corner. The master bedroom on the second floor has a balcony over the outside deck below. You enjoy a view not that different from being in a tree house.

The deck offers shelter under a large umbrella, and the standard gas barbeque to cook up your meals. You can also cook inside on the propane stove, with the refrigerator to store any food. Inside there is another upstairs bedroom that contains a queen-size bunk bed. There is a bedroom on the main floor with a sliding door

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 25 kilometers; this is ‘heaven’ to those who appreciate a remote, “Algonquinesque” setting. Enjoy fishing, swimming, canoeing, hiking, wildlife, quiet lifestyle.

Live off the Grid....: Find yourself in a large two-story modern designed cottage and enjoy an upscale ‘camping experience’. Live comfortably off the grid with solar/batteries/generator, 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.

SOOOOOO PEACEFUL....

  • 5 of 5
I agree with words that others have said: tranquil, peaceful, and serene. It took awhile to figure out when to use what for power but we got the hang of it really fast. I was delighted that there was no television for an absolutely wonderful quality family experience. I was also impressed that there were no spiders or insects in the cottage (a personal fear of mine!) It was a year ago we stayed at Meredith's place and I'm itching to get back. I'll always remember the sounds of moose while we sat at a crackling fire. I LOVE the cottage floor plan and LOVE the private surroundings. ~ an absolutely wonderful place to stay. Carol Ann

PRIVATE, PEACEFUL AND RELAXING.

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our time at Dragonfly Hollow. It was private, peaceful and relaxing. There were several huge windows making it full of light inside. The deck is huge and gets plenty of sunlight. If you’re looking for a fancy place, keep looking. This cottage is about comfort and what we call “The true cottage experience.” It’s more like upscale camping. You don’t have to use an outhouse, as it has two full bathrooms. The bed was really comfortable. We loved the woodstove and appreciated the backup heat source. We look forward to going back.

VERY PRIVATE

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time at your cottage. It was so private and serene! Caught a 22" large mouth bass right off the dock with a worm. My husband said he's never seen a bass that big!! Record bass in Ontario is 22 "! The cottage was clean and functional and we loved the design and concept! It was very nice of you to greet us upon arrival and show us the function of the generator and how it supplies hydro and water to the cottage.. Loved the outside lights on the beautiful deck. Went up and down the river in your canoe. Loved every minute of it! Met the resident snapping turtle by the dock and saw a mink swimming across the river right off the shore by your dock. Lovely long walk along the driveway too! The raspberries were a nice bonus! Truly a unique and special place! We loved it!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. I am really glad you had a good time. That is the largest bass ever caught that I know of at the end of the dock. I did catch a pike that was huge on a worm. I felt I was bringing in a tuna!

DRAGONFLY HOLLOW WAS WONDERFUL OUTDOOR EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed at this cottage a couple of times and have really like the natural setting and wildlife. It was great to be on the deck and walk around and canoe the Magnetewan River. We enjoyed catch and release fishing. Slept well with no problems on super comfortable mattresses. Living off the grid was a new experience. It presented a simple lifestyle but still lots of ameniities like showers, and cooking arrangements.
We were close to Algonquin park and made day time hiking trips and enjoyed the breathtaking beauty of the Park.
I highly recommend this very private and comfortable cottage for your getaway destination

A PIECE OF HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
Dragonfly Hollow was a great place to stay, loved it, it's so tranquil. Loved having my morning coffee on the dock watching the wildlife go by, it's such a beautiful natural setting. Enjoyed barbecuing on the large deck and tanning (very private!) and even just sitting there at night looking up at the stars. Living off the grid turned out to be quite easy for us and all our needs were met for energy (I had 2 fourteen year old girls with me so lots of showers). The beds were very comfortable and the cottage was spacious and clean. We went hiking in the area after checking into the Algonquin office in Kearney a couple of kilometers away. Also got in a shopping trip into Huntsville. Definitely going to come back!

A RELAXING PLACE TO RETREAT FROM THE RUSH OF LIFE

  • 4 of 5
I have spent two weekends at this cottage. While it is unfinished as the previous reviewer mentioned, it is comfortable and a very relaxing place to stay. I wasn't sure how I would handle being "off the grid", but it all worked quite well. It is refreshing to get away from TV's and the sense of hustle with being in the city. It was very quiet and there was a continuous chance to view wildlife while sitting on the deck or the dock.
