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.

 


Couples resort

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. With with direct access to 35 km of trail alongside the serene Madawaska River on an abandoned railway bed you can go mountain biking or ATVing for hours. Or take a leisurely hike on the resorts

Couples Activities

Weather here in the spring can often be several degrees warmer than if you live near places like Lake Ontario as the ground here can warm up fast and we have no big Lake effect keeping air cool. Here you can enjoy outdoor hiking and horseback riding plus many other sports and attractions.

Moose Watching

Spring offers the year's best Moose viewing and you typically don't have to search very hard to see Moose. The application of salt to Highway 60 during winter road maintenance operations, attracts Moose to roadside ditches.

We provide clothing to keep you warm and dry, includes 100% windproof & waterproof pants and jackets plus polar fleece interiors, if needed. We recommend that you bring good hiking shoes.

Algonquin Park Summer

Spring in Algonquin Park comes later than surrounding areas as a result of the Park's higher elevations.

We provide free passes into Algonquin Park with your stay with us.

Algonquin Park's two museums, the Visitor Centre and Logging Museum, are open daily (see the Events Calendar for specific operating dates and hours) offering all visitors park information, plus outstanding natural and cultural history exhibits.

From late April into May, a select group of wildflowers called “spring ephemerals” grow and bloom in the brief window between the spring snow melt and leaf-out of the overhead canopy of trees. Once the canopy has filled in, very little light reaches the forest floor and many of these wildflowers go into dormancy until the next year, staying alive as a rootstock underground.
