The Observatory House

The Algonquin Radio Observatory campus includes the Observatory House. To the North of the main observatory site and surrounded by coniferous forest, the house overlooks Lake Travers. The house has provided a comfortable environment for astronomers, scientists, students and Observatory personnel to relax and enjoy the scenic beauty of the park when not on duty. Now, for the first time since the Observatory was commissioned in 1965, the house is open to visitors. With fourteen rooms, dining and recreational activities, the Observatory House provides a tranquil location for your holiday or retreat in the Park with an added astronomical twist.
