Family Returns to Algonquin

It was wonderful to see Rainer and family back at the Algonquin Cottage Outpost this winter. The solar powered Cottage Outpost chalet suites are ideal for a family of 4. With two bedrooms, washroom/ shower, full kitchen, fireplace, deck and BBQ- the suites are set up for a comfortable 3 night or week long stay. Rainer’s family took advantage of the kitchen and prepared their own meals while adding on some guided days of snowshoeing and dog sledding.

Mixed with cozy accommodation, tasty meals, and some time on snowshoes – you are in for a great winter weekend!
