We had a fantastic weekend at the Shangri La for my birthday! The staff even provided a bottle of wine as a birthday gift. This was my 5th time visiting Blue Moon Retreat, but my first time staying at Shangri La. The cottage is immaculately kept and has amazing amenities to keep everyone entertained for days on end. From the moment we arrived we felt right at home. The fireplace is beautiful and did a great job keeping us warm during the days and nights. There is also a huge supply of dry firewood available. The beds are incredibly comfortable and everyone had amazing sleeps/naps. The sheets are also unbelievably soft. Where did you get them? The kitchen is well equipped to handle the needs of a large party. The view is amazing, as this cottage is just a few steps from the lake. We even made an igloo during our stay. My only complaint was the cleanliness of the hot tub, but that didn’t stop anyone from getting in. The sauna was also a popular hangout during our visit. The wifi wasn’t the greatest, but who needs internet when you are at the cottage. I think this actually made the cottage a better experience for everyone, as we were able to enjoy each others’ company without distractions (emails, texts, internet, etc). We are already looking forward to booking our next stay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We invite you to unwind, relax, reconnect and rejuvenate at our small cottage resort on peaceful Purdy Lake which is located between Bancroft and Barry's Bay on the quieter, southeast side of Ontario's Algonquin Park. Our all-inclusive, 'cut-above', resort has 1,500 feet of frontage on a largely undeveloped lake. A pair of loons nest on the island in the centre and their mournful cries are music for the soul. With just 6 housekeeping cottages on 20 acres you will be sharing this slice of the sparsely populated Canadian Algonquin Highlands with only a few other guests and the local wildlife. Many of our guests come for weekend or mid-week getaways during the even quieter fall, winter and spring seasons. ... more less
