Algonquin Island Retreat
“Algonquin Park private island with comfortable cabin and spectacular views”
Relax in your own couples-only private island cottage retreat on Kawawaymog Lake at Algonquin Park Access Point # 1 on Algonquin’s western boundary.
The island is a short canoe paddle from Algonquin Access Point #1 and our Canoe Outpost. With 360-degree water views and two decks, the cabin is fantastic for artisans or couples looking for a quiet getaway in nature.
The Island was once a “camp” of Tom Wattie, who was an Algonquin Park ranger from 1900 – 1931. Tom Thomson was also a park ranger at this time and became good friends with Wattie , visiting him often at his camp, now known as the Algonquin island retreat. “The tent” and “Round Lake, Mud Bay” were painted by Thomson while staying on the Island.
The cabin is cozy and has spectacular views from every window. A 2009 renovation added second floor bedroom with stunning walk out deck. The front porch is classic and just wide enough for a small dining table for two to watch the sunset.

Please note the Island is for couples only.
