House rules

Where the silver moon touches the pine ridge, sits a wilderness cabin surrounded by a quiet forest overlooking a secluded lake. This completely private property has many trails to explore and an abundance of wildlife. A wood burning stove keeps the cabin warm while pillows and blankets provide much needed comfort. Enjoy your favorite winter outdoor activities, take photos of the frozen forest, make a campfire or curl up with a book as the snow falls outside, lulling you to sleep.

The space
This wilderness escape is only 170 km (2hr) drive from Toronto. There are no people or houses in sight, no cars, no lights – only the whispering of the towering pines and the sounds of nature. There is nothing but silence, and the serenity makes you feel that you are the only one on Earth. The cabin is accessible by a 10-15min hike from the main road where you park your car. We provide a sled to haul in your gear. There are older locked cabins on site - the remnants of a former hunting camp and a glimpse of the era gone by.
The wood burning stove is the heating source in the cabin and bagged firewood is delivered to the cabin and can be purchased on-site. Non bagged firewood is free. Pots/pans/cutlery are provided, but if you don’t want to do the dishes, disposable plates/cups are available. Camping stove and BBQ are also provided for your cooking needs. During winter months, running water is not available - you can melt snow on the stove. Or, you can take a trip to Minden for a meal at a fast food or fine dining restaurant.
The property is adjacent to crown land which is spectacular for hiking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing (two pairs available at the cabin), sledding, and ice skating/hockey (check ice conditions first, hockey sticks are at the cabin). QE II Provincial Park is only 1 km (1 min drive) from the cabin where you can explore more extensive hiking and cross-country skiing trails. In the evening, play a board game, read a book or simply relax by the stove with your favorite drink and enjoy the sounds of nature.
