One Weeks Not Enough 5 out of 5


 I have been coming to Nicks Retreat for years. Spring, summer,fall and winter. Every season offers something special. During the days, excursions to the quaint villages surrounding Nicks's Retreat, drives to Algonquin Park to see the Moose along the highway, the Visitor Centre, swimming at Bark Lake, going fishing at Cross Lake, toasting marshmallows around the fire pit, hearing the wolves howl, wishing on shooting stars, seeing the spectacular colour of fall. The peace and tranquility that I feel each and every time I come here is incredible. The beds are comfortable, the house is spotless. The house has everything you would need to make your stay memorable. I would highly recommend Nick's Retreat to everyone, oh yes, my dog loves coming here and seeing the pups next door. Both she and I are sad to leave!! Great place Nick, it's awesome and you did a remarkable job!!




 Nicks Retreat 5 out of 5


 For me Nicks Retreat is heaven on earth. I have been here a few times. I have seen the transformation and it is truly spectacular!! I am 96 years old and Nicks Retreat has all the amenities to make it very easy for me to get around. The place is very clean, neighbours are fantastic. I look forward to my next stay at NicksRetreat.

Nick's Retreat 5 out of 5


Stayed for a week at Nick's Retreat with our family. This was our second stay with Nick and again we had a great time. The accommodations are very clean and comfortable and I would recommend a stay here. The area is beautiful with a couple of very nice swimming areas and is very close to Algonquin Park and bear watching in Whitney.
Thanks for the week Nick!

I highly recommend this spot to anyone looking for a great getaway. We will be back NEXT YEAR!!!!



Great weekend stay with family and friends 5 out of 5

Since I enjoyed my stay at Nick's place last summer, I invited my friends and family to join me this year. We all had such a great time. The place was spotless, a lots of room to accommodate all of us and the owners were very welcoming and took a very good effort in making sure all out needs were accommodated.

We had a great time playing games outside, watching stars at night, going to the nearby sandy beach and visiting Vilno - the first polish settlement in Canada and home to a thriving artisan community.

Thank you,

Mila and family


The scenery was beautiful and relaxing 5 out of 5

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed out time at Nick's Retreat. The cottage was very well prepared for us when we arrived. When we arrived Nick greeted us and showed us around the cottage. There was so much to do while we were there, and plenty we didn't even have time to do! Nick was very helpful in pointing us to the activities he thought we would be interested in, such as the local swimming and fishing spots. The scenery was beautiful and relaxing. We'd love to vist again for a fall season and bring friends/family with us.

Awesome May 24 weekend 5 out of 5


We had originally booked for Easter to do some ATV riding, but when Easter came this year, there was still a lot of snow on the ground. Nick was very accommodating in letting us move our trip to the May 24 weekend. This was our first stay at Nick's Retreat and we were really happy with everything. Nick gave us the run of the whole place. If you like to ATV, hunt, fish, hike or just hang out you will find that Nick's Retreat is a great place from which to do so. We will definitely be returning. I would highly recommend Nick's Retreat to anyone who enjoy' the great outdoors.
Thanks Nick

A Great Getaway 5 out of 5


We have been going up to Nicks Retreat for the last couple of years and each time it seems we have more fun. Me and my two sons look forward to the week we spend together; fishing, hiking and boating in the many near by lakes. We have made many new friends; hunters that keep coming back the same time we do, sitting around the camp fire. Nick provides a clean, friendly and family like atmosphere and will go out of his way and beyond what is expected of him to make sure his guests are well cared for; I say this from first hand experience.
We have already booked our 2013 getaway with Nick.

Amazing Summer Getaway! 5 out of 5


My brother, father and I have been going to Nick's Retreat for 2 years now and have had a fantastic time each year. During the day we would go fishing in the boat Nick has available, or take a short drive north and go for a hike in Algonquin Park. At night we would usually sit by the fire and relax. The food was delicious and homemade; we never left the table hungry. The lodging was very comfortable and always clean. I', looking forward to going back next year and years to come!

Great time! 5 out of 5


I went for a weekend away with just me and my two young boy's aged 2 and 7. We had a great time and the boy's keep asking when we will be going back. We really enjoyed the proximity to the lakes for some fishing but my boy's really enjoyed the ATV riding we did during the day. At night things were just as eventfull watching the large screen TV with a movie and popcorn or taking in an open fire in the yard. It was nice to see all the ammenities were clean and fresh along with the linen and towels. I know I'll be going back again this year, maybe I'll even bring the wife this time!

If you enjoy swimming, playing outdoor games and having a great time, this place is perfect for you! I went up with my family and had a blast!!! The place was clean, roomy and perfect for our getaway!!! It's a very good value and a great place for a family to stay. The owner is very friendly but not intrusive and offered to take the kids out ATVing. I highly recommend to renting this property and will be going up there again myself!

Perfect Canada Day Long Weekend 4 out of 5


It was one of the perfect long weekends that we spent with our closest friends. The place we rented was perfect for the occasion. It was the Canada day long weekend and kids enjoyed the ample space & privacy at the cottage.
We had a camp fire and everybody danced around it. Since it was Canada day, we had the opportunity of having our own fireworks show to speak. Kids loved it.
Amenities are decent. We absolutely loved the bunkies & the additional recreational hall with the kitchen.
Nick is a nice gentleman & very easy to deal with. The next door neighbour who will welcome you when you reach there are very nice too.
Location is perfect and there are so many parks & lakes nearby including the famous Algonquin Park only 30-40 minutes away. It is guaranteed that you will not get bored.
Highly recommended.

Nice Stay with plenty of room for even a big party 5 out of 5


We had a nice stay here at Nick's, plenty of room to accommodate for a big party. We were 3 families with kids having their own privacy staying at the bunkies, they had lots of fun.


Amenities are decent and also if you forget something the neighbours are great. We borrowed a pack of cold beers and returned the next day to neighbour!!


Nick is nice guy to deal with and you will find things in order when you get there. Location is nice close to many lakes and small towns in short driving distance.


We spent a fall stay to watch leaves falling and that was fantastic.


Highly recommended.
