A Weekend at the Algonquin Eco-Lodge

Ken and Helen outside Algonquin Eco-Lodge

Helen, Ken and I have just returned from a sunny weekend at the Algonquin Eco-Lodge together with five members of OHOC (Ottawa Hostel Outdoors Club) and about 20 other sundry punters. 

A fuller report will be added to this posting in due course, and may be of interest to those considering visiting the lodge.

The lodge has its pros, and its Cons.

For the present, suffice to say we enjoyed a pleasant weekend.  The lodge’s accommodation was fine and the food was mostly adequate, as were the ski and snow shoe trails.  The quite well groomed ski trails were rather limited in length, as was the snow shoe route.

Thanks go to Tim for organising the weekend.  Thank you, Tim.

...mostly adequate..... are you being polite there Martin?

I'm being truthful, Mike. The food was ok, but not to any particular timetable, and on cold plates. There was a round of applause for a rather ordinary lasagne, so perhaps it's just that European standards of cuisine in mountain huts, youth hostels, etc, are higher. Or perhaps everyone was being...oh, so polite!
