I booked at Portage Inn at the last moment, having found myself with two days to kill before a flight home. I was just looking for a base from which to tour this Algonquin and surrounding areas.
Nancy and Sid made my stay utterly captivating. A truly wonderful location, an equally impressive house - it is so refreshing to stay somewhere that is totally quiet at night without the incessant hum of air conditioners and the like, and finally and most important were Nancy and Sid as hosts. With scintillating conversation, escorted trips in the area and a remarkable element of participation, you truly are made to feel as if you are at home at Portage Inn.
Some of the wonderful highlights were:
- Seeing the Milky Way so clearly (for a native of South England that is awe inspiring)
- The canoes and boats provided, together with escorted trips to the isolated points with just fantastic views of the lake and forest
- A real world charm about the Portage Inn itself. There is interest in every corner, both inside and also in the surrounding area.
I truly hope to return, and maybe bring some of the family to share this wonderful experience.
I put my two days at Portage Inn as one of the best vacation trips ever.
