Wonderful two night stay at the end of January. Beautiful rustic charm in this 1889 Inn but still with all of the modern conveniences. A fabulous breakfast is served to you (at your choice of time) by Jaqi and Jayne in the main room..It was like eating in an antique store. Beautiful old tables, chairs and dishes. Very large bedroom with a comfortable bed and duvet and large bathroom. The Inn has a magical feel about it and the owners Nancy and Sidney make a point of stopping and chatting with you as you sip wine by the fire to learn about their guests. Very personable. Everyone was so accomodating and friendly. Even as you prepare to check out your day starts with a personally written note to you, thanking you for your stay and mentioning small things they remembered that you mentioned during your chats.
Very wintery when we were there and still plenty to do closeby. We snowshoed across Penn lake (snowshoes provided). Went to Arrowhead Provincial Park (25min) where there is Cross country skiing, Tubing, Snowshoeing and Skating through the trees (which we did). Huntsville is 10-15 minutes away and Algonquin Park is within 30 minutes. They are also located right on two major Snowmobile trails. (Snowmobiles NOT provided).
We have already recommended The Portage Inn to everyone that we have spoken to and we will definitely be back.
