“A Great Family Get Away”
Reviewed 12 September 2010

Since moving to Canada 3 years ago this was my first Cottage Resort holiday. If you enjoy the outdoors, country walks, swimming in a river, fishing, BBQ, canoeing, kayaking and sitting around a fire or on the dock with a few colds ones watching for shooting stars (or satellites) this place is for you. Its all about the simple pleasures. My brothers family joined me from the UK and they had a great time, even their teenage daughter who seemed to be more in the water than on dry land had a great time. The area is great with straight forward pleasant locals and great food at the local establishments. We found that we did not need to stray to far to find everything we needed. The staff are friendly, helpful and make everyone feel welcome, the highlight of the week is the communal fish fry that the staff organize. The cottages are well equipped and comfortable, set in a beautiful location. My only disappointment was having to leave and not seeing any bears!

I highly recommend Woodland echoes. So much so, that I returned sooner than I expected. The food was awesome with an amazing presentation. It's a home away from home. There are many things to do, most of them are included free of charge and there is never a dull moment. Ken and Carol are great hosts and made us feel right at home. Keep up the great work! :0)

Cottages at Woodland Echoes were rustic but modern, well spaced and seperated by wooded areas with great views of Ahmic Lake. They all had decks to sit on to enjoy your morning coffee and private docks for your boats right in front of your cabin. More than enough activities to keep pre-teen grandchildren busy all day. Adults did not have to entertain the kids so they were able to enjoy the grounds and activities as well. Fishing was pretty good with quite a few large pike and bass being brought in. Really enjoyed the all camp fish fry put on by the owners to help meet all of the other visitors. Already planning to go back next year.

Our cottage was very nice but seriously you can't call this place a resort. If you do go, stay clear of the meal plan. The food was awful. One person at the table next to us pulled out a hair from his main course. There was food stuck to the side of my water glass. The steak ,if you can call it that, was awful. The veggies - steamed out of a Bird's Eye bag. A far cry from gourmet meals.....They wanted us to choose a specific time for each meal. I guess I wasn't planning on so much structure on vacation. A window when breakfast and dinner would be served would have been nice After our first meal, we just couldn't go back for more.

Thought the room was clean and the owner attentive-- it missed the boat. The towels smelled of moth balls. The couch was a love seat ."resort materials" talked of all the no no's and how much they would cost if you did them. . We left after one night and moved to a real resort in Algonquin Park. It was well worth the move.

I don't write reviews often but don't be fooled by the glowing reports on this one......

To the American couple who had a less than wonderful experience at Woodland Echoes recently, we are sorry to hear that your visit was not everything that you expect it to be. We can assure you, if we had been made aware of the circumstances that resulted in your early departure we certainly would have attempted to rectify the situation.
Being a family operated business for the last 31 years our family makes every effort to exceed our guests expectations.

Remember to follow the driving directions listed on the resort's web site.
We followed our GPS which led us through many small back road paths.

The family owned resort are warm and welcoming. Home cooked meals twice a day was served at the main dining area. They accomodated our active 4 young adults with many outdoor activities as possible. The sound of their laugher and happiness has left a gift giving echo in my memory.

I enjoyed the relaxing water view and the serenity of the resort. It was a great stress free vacation at extremely reasonable price for a large family of young adults.
My husband loved the idea that they had the old cottage place feel with wood burning fireplace and a hot tub !

Totally loved it and am planning to make it our family tradition at least once a year.

My husband and I and our two kids (8 and 5) spent a week at Woodland Echoes last summer in August. Our stay was terrific with many highlights. Our cottage was very cozy and clean, and we were thrilled to have a great deck and BBQ! Though a bit on the small side, the accommodations were very comfortable, had all the needed amenities and was a perfect home away from home. A couple times we didn't feel like cooking, and enjoyed wonderful meals in the Resort's dining room. Our host/waiter was very upbeat and also very helpful in giving my husband great fishing tips and locations. We enjoyed the boat and the lake immensely, and there was lots for the kids to do on the grounds (a playground, sand beach, mini golf... overall, a great outdoor environment to relax and just hang out in). The landscaping and gardens are very well cared for (except for a bit of grass on the beach), and it was just a quiet and beautiful spot to have a vacation at our own pace. We look forward to going back this summer, and in fact, I'm hoping that my sister will take our kids for a weekend sometime in the near future so that my husband and I can go on our own too!
