Each of the units contain a king size bed that can be split in to 2 singles, 3 piece bathroom, sitting area, small bar fridge, and a screened porch located on and facing a quiet bay on Cache Lake. Artwork by each of the artists will be featured in the rooms and guests will have the experience of staying in a 100 year old log building. In keeping with Bartlett's sustainable tourism philosphy 80% of the materials used to build the artists studio will be recovered in previously used building materials.
In keeping with our commitment to the environment and sustainable tourism, Bartlett Lodge has relocated an historic log building to our site to create a new guest lounge and two new guest rooms. The original building belonged to noted Canadian artist, Isabel McLaughlin, the daughter of R. S. McLaughlin, found of General Motors of Canada. The building was used by Isabel as a country retreat and her guests from time to time included Lawren Harris, Arthur Lismer and A.Y. Jackson as well as many other well known 20th century Canadian Artists. The guest lounge will also have a small display of original art and antiques, some of which will be for sale. For 2012, the theme of our Art display will be "Algonquin Park in Pencil".
