“Cozy Comfort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2012

This B&B was a phenomenal surprise. We stayed for three days in the Gardenview room and would have stayed for more if given the opportunity :) We arrived a bit late as we were driving a fair distance. Gail had called us to make sure we were ok and to see if we needed any further directions. When we arrived she had prepared us a cold plate with assorted cheeses and smoked salmon. This was a wonderful touch as we had not eaten in our rush to relax. Gail and Jim made us feel right at home and were able to answer all of our questions about the area. After making us reservations at the beautiful Norseman restaurant (just a few minutes away) and helping us to make skiing reservations, Gail made several phone calls until she found a massage therapist that came to the house for a deep tissue a massage. During that time I enjoyed a glass of wine or two with Jim by the beautifull fireplace. I would highly recommend this beautiful guest house to any couples looking to get away and relax. Thank you both and we look forward to seeing you again.

We found Algonquin Mist B&B to be a perfect spot for a long weekend getaway. We wanted to escape Toronto for a few days to do some hiking and skiing around Algonquin Park and Huntsville. The Algonquin Mist was an amazing place and at a perfect location, just 3 hours from Toronto and 20 - 30 minutes from Algonquin Park. Hidden Valley Ski area is also just a few minutes away along with various shops in Huntsville.

The room was beautiful - more space than a typical hotel room and it had extra's like an electric fireplace, fridge, wine accessories, TV, movie library, fantastic coffee… everything was quite new as the B+B is only 4 years old.

Gail and Jim went out of their way to make us comfortable. The breakfasts were amazing, and they gave us great suggestions on areas to check out and lent us some snowshoes to trek around. We saw deer and moose nearby, and there's an amazing restaurant the Norsemen just a 10 - 15 minute walk away.

I highly recommend this spot if you're looking for a great B+B experience.

Room Tip: The room layout was excellent with lots of privacy.

Luxurious, very comfortable B and B with delicious breakfasts in a lovely setting. We hiked during the day in nearby Algonquin national park (20mins drive) and Limberlost reserve (5 mins drive), ate very nice food at the Norseman restaurant (within walking distance), then sank into the sofa to watch dvds before sleeping for 12 hours a night in the peaceful, huge bed. Gail and Jim are lovely. We definitely recommend this place

Room Tip: garden room was huge

We stayed in the Garden View Suite for 2 nights. The room is really nice - very well decorated and finished, very clean and very cosy. Loved the fire and the spa bath in particular, and the underfloor heating in the bathroom is great!
The property is in a secluded and very quiet location and we slept very well. Gail and Jim made us feel really at home, giving us pointers for dinner in Huntsville (which is a 10 minute drive away). It's also about 45 minutes from the West Gate of Algonquin Provincial Park. Breakfast was good - omelettes one day and French Toast the next with plenty of coffee and juice, and yoghurt and apple strudel too!
I do have one comment to make though - the B&B is a "shoes off" house and while I completely understand this from a cleanliness point of view (I don't wear outdoor shoes in my house either!), not everyone is comfortable going barefoot in other people's houses. Perhaps the offer of disposable slippers like you get in hotels would make guests even more comfortable?

Beautiful Setting in the woods!!! Gail and Jim were amazing hosts that treat you like family!!! It's such a relaxing setting and everything you need is so close, you can go into town which is 10 minutes away or Algonquin Park 45 minutes drive, or just enjoy the beautiful, peaceful retreat to just relax and read a good book with a glass of wine. The breakfast was great and the accommodation the best. A new, clean and comfortable home! Beautifully decorated! that I can't wait to go back! thank you Gail and Jim!!

Algonquin Mists is a lovely B&B 10 minutes north of Huntsville. Gayle and Jim will fuel you up with a hearty breakfast and coffee every morning and give you the information you need for a locals experience. They know of all the unquie places in the area and the better restaurants to eat at. It made our experience enjoyable.

Beauty in the woods; a perfect adult retreat if looking for seclusion, pampering and relaxing while being close to Algonquin park, fine dining and Huntsville. Gail and Jim were great hosts; lovely home, built with love and beautiful décor throughout and in the garden suite which we stayed. Breakfast was just perfect to send you on your day’s adventures. Lots of amenities to make our stay comfortable as well as a selection of movies for a cozy night in. The bed was extremely comfortable, like sleeping on a cloud. We hope to visit again and would recommend to anyone visiting the area.

Room Tip: the master suite was well worth the money
