WE were a large group ( a tour) visiting Algonquin Park for the weekend, requiring several rooms for just one night, and the check-in process was slow. I shared a room at the front with another woman in our group and was a little disturbed to see that our bath tub was in the room with the 2 double/queen beds, while the toilet and sink were in a separate room. We worked around this obvious privacy issue, but I thought this was weird and was not expecting the room to be arranged this way. I get that its romantic to have a tub near the bed, but I'd expect that bed to be a single King size or heart-shaped? I think that a room that offers 2 beds, should have a more private tub/shower set up.
Aside from this, I found the room tastefully decorated, clean and very comfortable.
The building is close to the road, but traffic is light and can not be heard from inside the room with the windows closed. A porch runs the length of the building and chairs are available if you want to sit out side. In June the mosquitoes were fierce. Bring bug spray. Whitney is a small town with only a couple of places to get food and gas. If you need to get fuel for your vehicle, do it early... you might find places are closed if you wait.
