Did you know that many lodges and Ontario Parks welcome pets? Find out our top picks.
We get so many great questions from Ontario travelers and one in particular has just kept coming up: “Where are the best places in Ontario to take your pet on vacation with you?”.
Here’s just a few of our picks.
The Lodge is located on a secluded island on Nym Lake on the border of Quetico Provincial Park. It offers a perfect wilderness eco-adventure for your whole family.
The motto at Woodhaven Country Lodge says it all: “If your dogs sleep on your bed at home then they can sleep on your bed at Woodhaven”. You and your dog can enjoy all sorts of outdoor activities.
For dogs that can’t be off-leach in an open environment, the Guest House now features a fully enclosed 110’ long x 50’ wide run.
Woodhaven has been operating since 1993 and there’s plenty for pets and their families to enjoy on this beautiful lake, including walks through the woods, swims in the lake in summer, skating and snowshoeing in the winter and much more.
The history, culture and scenery of Elora, Ontario is one of the gems of the province and you don’t have to leave your pet at home to enjoy this town.
Paws in Elora offers a pet friendly suite, complete with a welcome basket of doggy necessaries, and right in the heart of Elora. Enjoy a stroll to the Elora Gorge or through the town with your pup.
This actively pet friendly resort is ideal for you and your four legged family members. All of the cottages are pet-friendly and there are NO EXTRA FEES. All sizes of dogs will enjoy the designated off leash dog park and 6 km of off-leash trail.
