We stayed for 5 nights. With my family Yvette was so kind always full of great ideas for things to do with the kids. The rooms are clean and spacious. The backyard is great for watching the dear run and has a nice view of the stars at night. There's a great beach 5min walk with a park that's great...

We'll be back its hard to find a place like that with deer romping throught the backyard. It's cosy and clean and very comfortable, no highway noise.

We visited the Pinewood Hotel in June on the first night of our motorcycle getaway. We were welcomed by Yvette, the owner who made us feel at home. Our room was well appointed and spotless. Towels for washing our motorcycle are available in the room. Yvette and Mark are doing lots of work at the motel to add to its...

We planned a family rafting trip and wanted a base in the area for a few days. The Pinewood Inn was everything we were looking for....an old school, small town, family run motel!! Yvette was amazing! Room was spacious and clean. Beds were firm and very comfortable. The "backyard" was such a unique feature. We loved the BBQ and the...

Yvette was awesome! She checked our group in efficiently, split the hotel bills for some, gave us great directions for everything we needed, and even made us reservations at the cute restaurant down the road.

Once again we found ourselves in Barry's Bay for a funeral, and we returned to the Pinewood Inn. Yvette and Mark were very accommodating of our late night check-in (as in past midnight) and made sure the heat was on and fridge plugged in. This trip we downsized our room, but it was still spacious, and very clean. The bed...

We did not have a reservation, we called ahead when we were on the trail, and they had a cancellation. They waited up for us to arrive, and were more than knowledgeable about food, trails and the weather. You couldn't have asked for nicer owners and really clean rooms. Not only that, but the beds were the most comfortable during...

We loved this place. We booked it last minute for our final night exploring Algonquin and arrived late after driving around looking for moose. The owner could not have been friendlier when we arrived and at her suggestion, we drove up to nearby Paugh Lake to watch the lunar eclipse. A stunning spot. The motel is clean, warm and very...
