We absolutely loved it there. We stayed for 3 nights and four days it was so quiet and peaceful very restful. The cottage was very clean and had everything we required. Loved the sauna and hot tub. They welcomed dogs and our dog enjoyed being out on the lake and trails around the cottage. We would definitely go back perhaps...

We have stayed at the Shangri-La 5 times now, and will be back again on Family Day Weekend. It's a great family cottage, with room for my husband and I, my parents, two siblings (usually with a plus one each), and the family dog. A totally private cottage right on the waterfront, there's a slope to the lake that's great...

After visiting in March, we decided to return in the summer! No matter the season, Blue Moon is a treat! The Sunset cabin was flawless. We enjoyed swimming, the hot tub, the sunsets and the canoes and kayaks. Perfection - looking forward to our return trip already.

We loved our time at Blue moon. The owners thought of everything. There were kids toys/books available for our 2 year old along with a sandbox and play structures. Just a really lovely spot. My only critique being that we were unable to stream. However they had date lot so we found that to be a good substitute. The cabin...

We stayed at the Blue Moon Retreat this past August and though the weather was not the greatest...it rained a lot, the vacation was still amazing. The property is well looked after, both inside and out. They have thought of everything you could possibly need good weather or bad! From the DVDs, games, books to the kayaks, row boat, pedal...

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
