Hondoo Island Algonquin Chalet
Spend the week on an Algonquin Island in a deluxe chalet on the northern tip of Hondoo Island. Swim, paddle, hike, fish and explore the beauty of Algonquin and Kawawaymog Lake.
Make the most of spring and explore, hike, fish and paddle. Spring is the prime time to spot wildlife like moose, beavers, otters and more! Off the beaten track and very private, the Algonquin Log Cabin was built for active adventure types whose idea of a first class weekend (or anytime) adventure is to head to a remote lakeside cabin with special friends or family to enjoy active days and amazing food. The Algonquin Log Cabin can accommodate 12 guests. For larger groups, our Pinecroft Cabin (which can accommodate an additional 6 guests) is just steps away.
“The perfectly authentic Canadian log cabin experience off the grid while nestled on a beautiful lake was awesome. The rooms are clean, rustic with comfortable beds and bedding. The screened in porch was lovely to relax on, read a book and enjoy a glass of wine while observing the creatures in the forest. Dinner was set at a beautiful harvest table accommodating all guests and providing the perfect environment to enjoy a beautiful dinner by candlelight. We did a paddle on the lake and it was lovely and provided a great view of the sunset.”
“The Log cabin is beautiful ! You could spend hours just looking at all the little decorations and small touches to make it feel so homely. There is no WiFi or electricity and it allows you to completely escape from your regular life… it only adds to the experience.”
It means that our cabin is not hooked up to grid electricity. We operate without the need for electricity aside from filling our water cisterns from our well, for which we use a generator.
There are two indoor bathrooms for the guests to use in the Log Cabin with flushing toilets. All of the water in the building comes from our well and is filtered for drinking before reaching the faucet.
There is a shower in the shower/sauna house was fitted with an electric pump on solar power to offer solid water pressure.
No. There is no electricity and no Wifi. There is a cell phone repeater tower within a 5 minute drive where you can get service.

We provide fresh and mostly whole-foods meals that are prepared with care and skill.
