Another New Normal!

Being in the middle of the wilderness, we go through natural changes, seasonal or climatic and we roll with whatever nature presents. We’ve had many surprises to challenge our durability and adaptability but last year brought one nobody expected.

Team Killarney took the outbreak in stride and we’re happy to welcome guests to the new normal. Read more

Room service, cabin delivery

Imagine… breakfast in bed, in the wilderness! … an intimate evening dinner in your cabin or out on the porch. We offer breakfast and dinner this way.

Enjoy breakfast on the porch overlooking the lake, or savour an intimate perhaps romantic dinner in your cabin. We even provide the candle! Read more

Some great ideas

We put health as top priority, often exceeding regulations, yet making sure it dovetailed with the customary comfort we provide for our guests.

The log dining room became more spacious, but the big news was to offer deliveries for breakfast and dinner. A big hit! Read more

Long distance Granddad!

Samantha and Jon are in Buffalo NY and are the proud parents of their second child, Penelope Fiona, born September 16th. 2020.

Prime and smoked

Our prime rib is renowned and much enjoyed when it appears on the menu. We use our smoker with apple wood and chicory to enhance the gourmet experience before roasting to your preference.

Lynda and Devan are operators and cooks of this Killarney culinary treat. If the aroma is in the air, it’s on the menu! Read more

“It’s just a cell phone”

Not long ago we would say “Oh, it’s just a shot from my cell phone.” but phones and cameras in them have advanced with results to rival professional cameras. Magazines, commercials and documentaries are captured using “phones” now. The enthusiastic amateur photographer can leave behind the big tripod and camera bag to explore the wilds unencumbered. Read more
