Summer ~ Couples Only

SUMMER VACATION AT A 5 STAR RESORT

To do a lot or do nothing at all? A tough decision when almost everything is included in one package. No matter what time of year, there's always a lot to do at Couples Resort. Then again, who said you couldn't just relax in a deep padded chaise lounge on your own room deck and indulge in a favorite novel while resting in the soothing warmth of the day.  Whatever you choose, you're sure to enjoy all of our activities.

The resort sits on a Semi-Private Lake, Galeairy Lake which is 11 km long reaching into Algonquin Park and 95% undeveloped so great for exploring hidden bays and exploring what nature has to offer along the shorelines.  Or explore the rugged surroundings can compel you to take a guided trail ride in the Algonqin wilderness.

Or take a leisurely hike on the resorts trails.
