One may have Room Service if one does not want to meet the Couples Resort Semi-Formal** Standards (Standards which have been set by a sample of 1000 Guests of the Resort in 2012.  Standards definitely not because we are stuffy, but because everyone loves to dress up.  Remember we are all down to earth here (the benefit of being here at Algonquin)

"For many men and women, a dress code is something to be embraced. At its core, a dress code sets a mood and a tone; it makes an evening special. It ensures that all of the effort that you put into how you look--the money, the time, the thought, the energy--is rewarded by the explicit acknowledgement of the restaurant that you are "worthy" of your meal by respecting the efforts put in by the owners and the staff. The lavish ornamentation that makes a restaurant sparkle translates to people too; the glitzy jewelry on your neighbor's wrist might do battle with the crystal stem ware  for your attention. The glamour of fine dining, the polish of the silverware, the fizz of the champagne, is heightened--so the theory goes--by what people are wearing. And this, at least at the fanciest restaurants, is the status quo."

Lunch and Breakfast is casual dress, wear what you like.

Is Tipping Required?

We are an All-Inclusive Resort, so Tipping is in the Prices.  We wish that you would rather indulge in another Spa appointment, participate in one more sport activity, have another delicious bottle of wine, spoil oneself with extending the stay another night, come back again during the next year, or tell a friend(s) about us.....any of these will help all of the Resort's working team (many of the Team have been here 10 to 30 years), far more than tipping would.  This Policy insures that we can provide better quality service throughout the Resort for years to come, thank you.

Do you accept Pets?

We do not accept pets of any kind. However ask your Doctor for a "Certificate for a Therapy Pet" and then you can take and do what you wish in Ontario with your Pet, I understand many Doctors provide them easily, similar as we heard of many Doctors giving Medical Cannabis Certificates easily for anyone that wanted them.  .  The Adventure Lodge www.AdventureLodge.com which is about 4 km away from us, accepts pets. Adventure Lodge prices also include Dinner and Breakfast and we recommend them for an Authentic Canadian Experience,,,,Rustic 0-Star, yet Luxurious!

Where are the moose?

Algonquin Park has thousands of moose. The best chance of spotting a moose is along the highway 60 corridor running through Algonquin. The moose are not generally afraid of tourists, and will continue to eat along side the road. (DO NOT APPROACH A MOOSE!) Moose are most frequent through May and June when road salt from the winters roads wash into the neighbouring ditches. Moose consider salt to be a treat, especially when mixed with their greens. In the foliage months, taking a very early hike on the Mizzy Lake Trail also can be rewarding. Moose become rare to see in the winter months.

Why Thermal salt-water pool?

Purely for enjoyment; we want everyone to use it. The Thermal Pool uses the Sun to heat it and they both use an electro-plate to break basic table salt into the compounds used to kill bacteria, similar to chlorine, without any of the side effects. There is no smell, it tastes a little salty and is more like a saline solution, so you can open your eyes under water and it will not irritate them. There is no chemical reaction to the skin, hair or swimsuits. You will actually feel smoother after your shower.

What are the Sport Centre Hours?

Daily 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
