This page is based on my German draft of a large German website which I had prepared for the previous owner and manager Maury East and his wife Frau Annabelle of this resort as a thank you for many information and pictures of this resort, the activities which were offered and naturally from the surrounding nature.
Maury was already in his eighties and still working and we wanted to stay in his place.
Unfortunately something unforeseeable happened and we could not realize our dream.
Please check the new website from this resort to see the changes which may have happened in the meantime to the operation. The nature is certainly still the same.

Mid-May to mid-October
Most visitors from Europe expect clean nature and wilderness in Canada with endless forests, clean lakes and friendly people.
The "Killarney Mountain Lodge" in Northeastern Ontario will not disappoint you. It is located in the so-called "Rainbow Country" on the north shore of the Georgian Bay.
We have created this website as an essential part of our internet travel guide. It should serve as a suggestion for what you have to expect here.

You can participate in guided tours or rent a boat
The boat dock
Some North Americans also travel with their own yacht. There is occasional crowding.
The food is good Canadian food and the chef received many compliments.
Steaks and spare ribs, fish from the lake, fresh salads and many side dishes. Millie, the cook is also very good with vegetarian specialties. Let yourself be pampered!
You can choose from several dishes at full board.
Of course you can swim in the lake. There is even a tiny sandy beach at the resort. In summer the water should be warm enough. As a precaution, there is also a heated pool directly in our resort.
We also use this to teach you the first steps in dealing with a sea kayak. Do not worry - they will be familiarized with all and we will also provide the mandatory safety equipment.
Beginner course for handling a sea kayak
These courses take little time. The swimming pool is therefore most of the time available to our other guests.
In addition to the sea kayaks also "Recreational kayaks" are offered.
Sometimes there is a crush on the shore
The hosts provide always something to make the stay attractive. Barbecues on the beach are just one of those surprises.
The swimming pool is centrally located
Kayaking would be the best way for us to explore the surroundings of the resort. I practiced that sport as a child and I went with Elizabeth on a familiarization course to be prepared for the planned visit.
Hiking is a not such a easy way to roam the surrounding wilderness.
We commend you to participate in one of the guided tours. First of all, many things are explained to you, and you certainly have the opportunity to talk to other participants and make new contacts. But also important is the safety aspect - not only if you should sprain an ankle, but also because of the wild animals. Bears do not always run away when they hear people.
In addition to the black bears, "Killarney Provincial Park" is home to foxes, beavers, moose, deer, herons and many other birds.
Of course, it is very important that you prepare yourself for the activities you are planning. You should definitely be physically fit enough to take part in it and bring the necessary equipment with you.
If you have forgotten something or you are surprised by bad weather - here you can buy with expert advice the missing things. There is a corresponding shop here called "Killarney Outfitters".
"Killarney Outfitters" - here you will find everything you need to be active
Don't just hang around in the resort.
Use the chance to be active. Otherwise you will miss to enjoy one of Ontario's most beautiful parks. Capture your experience by taking pictures and videos. Put some of that on the Internet. I used many YouTube presentations from people who did that.
You should know that by the late 1920s, a well-known group of Canadian painters had discovered the beauty of this pristine nature of the area. They have become known as the "Group of Seven". With their help, the nature reserve here was created.
The "Pilot House" - a cottage with a view of the lake
There are different types of accommodation available.
You should relax here or be very active. That's why they are not equipped with a kitchen.
The dining room
In the dining room, breakfast is served between 7:30 and 11:30. Lunch can be taken between 12:00 and 13:30.
Dinner is served between 18:00 and 20:00. During the hight season these hours are extended. Of course you can order alcoholic drinks for lunch and dinner.
In Canada, the food is mostly served with iced free water.
The water is save to drink. This is ensured by a completely new, modern water treatment plant in Killarney. The wastewater is treated and not disposed directly in the lake.
Spend fun hours in the "Carousel Bar and Lounge"
You do not have to drink alcohol there, although you should of course try Canadian wine or Canadian beer. Both are really good. but also international brands are offered.
If you are lucky you may also experience the performance of local artists. Visit the resort's English website for up-to-date information.
The "Carousel Bar and Lounge"
Even on the guided tours you will be spoiled.

On other tours, however, it is more elegant
The resort also has a barbecue area
This is a popular meeting place in the evening.
One of the rooms
Of course, guests have free access to all the facilities offered here. This includes not only the heated swimming pool, but also a sauna. Please note that you must be dressed properly in Canada if you visit them! Some Canadians who visited Germany suffered a shock when everybody was naked there.
The breathtaking surroundings of "Killarney Provincial Park" and the lake where the resort is located will not disappoint you.
Take part in some of the guided tours, which are held on an ongoing basis.
You will surely find partners who can teach you different lawn games.
There is also a tennis court here.
A paradise for hikers
Often you do not have to walk far to enjoy the beauty of the area
Naturally no one hopes that you will get sick while on vacation or even have an accident. Especially not in the remote wilderness.
Therefore it is very reassuring to know that for a very short time about 5 minutes walk away is a very well-equipped small clinic. An experienced nurse and ambulance, including an air rescue service from the local airfield, provide the necessary services. A doctor visits the clinic regularly.
You have also the opportunity to buy good souvenirs or gifts for friends at home. That includes also paintings..
Bears live in this wilderness. Usually they run away when they hear people. But there are also exceptions and which make the headlines!
When camping, never leave food lying around. These animals are always hungry and they do everything to satisfy their needs. My son and friends, who slept in a pickup truck in another park, were rudely awakened as the angry bear tried to enter the vehicle.
If you see bears during a guided boat tour there is no danger. Take snapshots or even better a video of such an experience!>/div>
