You can book with confidence in these unsettled times: We are providing an option to rebook dates open on our calendar anytime within the next year at NO additional cost:)

If you are seeking restitution away from the pressures of everyday living, or enjoy "glamping" without the fuss, the Yurt experience is sure to revitalize and re-connect you back to nature at its best!

During the cooler seasons,you will be kept snuggly warm even during the coldest of wintery nights inside Yurt's wool lined interior and our new high-functioning wood stove. Its large 17'x17' circumference is the perfect size for the perfect getaway! In late Spring, Summer and Fall the adjacent cabin compliments the yurt in giving you an additional screened-in porch overlooking the dock. They are both located within meters of each other and you will be assured full privacy on vast 11 acres of private property. NOTE: the cabin portion is closed off during winter January until Spring thaw.

Our guests are impressed with the vast 75 acre spring fed lake and waterfall just a few meters from the yurt. The lake is virtually undeveloped surrounded with crown land and private ownership with only one other small cabin on the entire lake.

A yurt is perfect way for vacationers who seek the simplicity of living the ultimate Algonquin experience. The thought of sitting around a campfire under a clear sky, gazing up at the stars and listening to the sounds of the night can pacify your minds and rejuvenate your soul!

We have decided to elope somewhere here in Canada and were looking for the perfect place. So we stumbled over this wonderful place. The pictures catched immediately our eye and after writing a few words with Doug and Orla we knew, this will be the perfect place for our perfect wedding. We cannot put into words how lucky we were to have found this yurt and to have gotten to know Orla and Doug. The communication before our arrival was just perfect, they answered all of our questions immediately and were even offering to help us with whatever we needed. On our arrival day (the day before our wedding) we found the place wonderfully and thoughtfully decorated with flowers from Orlas private garden. The area, the yurt, the cottage, the lake just the whole area is AMAZING and BREATHTAKING. Absolute, complete privacy, there is literally no one, we had the whole lake and everything around for ourselves. We were planning on going hiking but instead we spend all the time at the lake with swimming, kanooing, drinking coffee and watching the loons from the dock and enjoying the evening in front of the fire pit. Although it is very secluded, the town of Huntsville is very close. It is a very sweet town with lots to do and also great restaurants. Thank you Doug and Orla that you were having us, for being so uncomplicated, reliable and wonderful hosts and a big THANK YOU for letting us have the wedding of our dreams at your little piece of heaven.

Dear Doug and Orla,this was our first time staying at a yurta and a wonderful experience it was!The setting,structure and vista over the lake are truly magnificant.It was such a delight to settle into the the generous and most comfortable bed,while watching the branches of the pine and hemlock sway high above the circular sky light in the yurta.The airtight wood heater is additionally a welcomed feature and must make winter stays suitably comfortable and comforting.
The dining and recreational cabin,just a few meters down the path from the yurta is more than adequately equipted with bbq,an assortment of dish wear, utensils and work surface.
How lovely it was after a days paddling, to sit and take a cooked meal and glass of wine with my life partner while watching the night close over the lake.
It was with both pleasure in the stay and sadness in the leaving that we collected up our packs and slowly drove the enchanted road out to the highway.
God and good fortune willing we shall return to this part of paradise that you folks have made so generously available for all to enjoy and cherish.
Kindness regards

My girlfriend took me here for my 40th birthday as I enjoy roughing it, her not at all so it was a best of both worlds, very private, the yurt is amazing inside, luxury sleeping quarters, the cabin is perfect to relax and bug free if you prefer to eat at the table or cook on the BBQ provided, also multiple spots to cook over a fire, great dock to have a morning coffee and to have a swim, listen to the loons early morning and at night, waterfall near the yurt to listen to as you sleep, amazing place, dog friendly, canoe and paddle boat included, Algonquin park pass and some cool books likely left behind to read on a rainy day and scrabble, will go back in a heartbeat, but 3 days was to little

Thank you Noel for taking the time to post such an detailed and uplifting review ! As a family of nature lovers, we find Lakeside Yurt is the perfect balance of peace & tranquility, so its fulfilling when we hear our guests are are captivated by the beauty and soothing sounds of our little retreat too! We enjoyed having you at Lakeside Yurt :) We look forward in seeing you again soon! Take care for now, Orla and Doug Irwin

I purchased a two night stay as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend and We couldn't have been more thrilled with the stay. The yurt is cozy and warm (thanks to a wonderful little woodstove). Doug and Orla were absolutely fabulous hosts. It was neat reading the journal entries of past visitors from around the globe. We loved the location (hello privacy!) and were treated to a fresh snow fall during our stay which made us feel like we were in a winter wonderland! The snowshoes and park passes were an added bonus! I would 100% recommend this yurt to anyone.

I have never wrote a review before, but had such an amazing weekend that I needed to share this with anyone who was skeptical about booking!
I booked a Yurt weekend get-a-way for my fiancés 30th birthday. I honestly had never been camping as an adult before and was a bit leery, as it was very out of my element. I had the best time at this Yurt. Doug & Orla are so kind, welcoming, and have truly thought of everything you'd need to have a relaxing weekend. Even finding my wallet in the snow and mailing it to me. The scenery is beautiful, we walked away with wonderful memories and gorgeous photos. I felt we we experienced so much in just 4 days. We had some beautiful weather, a rain day and snow; all in the same weekend! The way the scenery changed was just amazing. Our dog was so tired out from the weekend and all the running he got to do: he's still trying to catch up on his sleep! We most definitely will be back again. Thank you so much Doug and Orla for sharing this piece of paradise that you have. It's just magical. :)
