Aster cabin is located on our very own private lake in Limberlost Forest & Wildlife Reserve — soon to be the site of Cabinscape Camp: Muskoka. By summer 2022, this pristine lake will be home to fourteen micro cabins, each on its own big, beautiful and secluded lot.
This spring, we are launching a handful of these cabins to take advantage of this incredible location. Aster is one of the first of our Muskoka fleet! All cabins will be identical in design and come with their own fire pit, BBQ, Muskoka chairs, and picnic table. Two adult pairs of complimentary snowshoes are also included during your stay for winter bookings and a complimentary canoe is included for summer stays. 
As part of our partnership with Limberlost Forest & Wildlife Reserve and our commitment to sustainable development, a Conservation Fee is included in the rental price of our cabins. This conservation fee directly contributes to the ongoing research, youth education and sustainability initiatives of Limberlost Forest. As a guest, this fee allows for unlimited day-use access of the facilities and more than 70km of hiking, biking, skiing, and snowshoeing trails at Limberlost Forest, right outside your door!

This eco-cabin is completely OFF-GRID. (Don’t let this scare you). Our cabin is modernized and solar powered with electricity and heat. Feel good knowing that you’re choosing a low-carbon, eco-friendly getaway. As an off-grid cabin, energy conservation is key. Drawing too much energy may cause you to lose power, so you’ll need to be mindful of your consumption during your stay. There is a back-up generator when solar power is low.


All garbage and recycling must be packed up and taken home on your departure.


Our vision with Cabinscape Camp is to create the very first series of “off-grid tiny cabin campgrounds” in Canada. These environmentally-conscious “Camps” will be geared to guests wanting a more communal and accessible wilderness experience. Multiple tiny cabins will be available to guests around a central lake – a perfect option for those post-Covid getaways with family and friends.

This year we are launching individual cabins at two Cabinscape Camp developments, one in the Kawarthas and one in Muskoka. In 2022, both of these locations will feature several group-based retreats and à la carte programs focused on adventure & wellness (sprinkled with summer camp vibes). Join our newsletter to be informed when we officially launch our Cabinscape Camp program.

  • This cabin has year round drive in access.

  • Fishing is not permitted on this lake.

This cabin is a year round drive in cabin. The lanes accessing the cabin will be plowed throughout the winter. However, we strongly recommend 4WD or AWD drive vehicles with snow tires during the winter as country roads and plowed lanes can be difficult to navigate with low riding or 2WD vehicles.


What makes this location awesome? 

This Cabinscape is located in Northeastern Muskoka, right within Limberlost Forest and Wildlife Reserve, a private year-round wilderness haven with twenty lakes and more than 10,000  unspoiled acres of mixed forest. The picturesque waterfront town of Huntsville is a short 20-minute drive away for great shopping, cafes, restaurants and events. The world-renown Algonquin Provincial Park is only a 30-minute drive away.

How far apart are the cabins? 

This July, we are only opening four of the fourteen cabins that will have a home on this lake. Additional cabin launches will be scattered throughout fall 2021 and spring 2022.

Our cabins have been strategically placed to provide as much privacy as possible. Even when all fourteen cabins are in place, you will not see your neighboring cabin (although you may hear others out and about on the lake). Sites are big, beautiful and protected by ample tree coverage.

In order to create as much privacy for our guests as possible, we’ve opted for minimal tree clearing of our shorelines. This allows our cabins to be hidden amongst the trees and out of sight from other guests who may be out on the water.

Only cabins with shallow shorelines will have a shore dock in order for guests to access the lake. However, the majority of our cabins have deep lake access right from the shoreline. In these cases, shore docks are unnecessary. We have opted to keep our lake more natural, pristine and private rather than fill it with neighboring docks.

When is check-in and check-out?

Entry is by lock-box and key. Check in time is 3 pm. Check-out is 11 am.

What if I need assistance during my stay?

We are always a phone call or text away for any questions or assistance. Our on-call property manager lives nearby and can be available on-site when needed.

What should I bring?

  • Your own food & drink
  • Your own towels, sheets, pillows, pillow cases and blankets
  • Firewood 
  • Bug repellent
  • Hand sanitizer

Does this cabin have running water or a shower?

Our Micro cabins do not have running water. We provide 40L of water for dish washing and drinking. This cabin has a private, outdoor shower operational only in the summer months.

Can I bring additional guests?

No. This cabin can only accommodate up to 2 guests.

Is there WIFI/Cell Service?

There is NO WIFI access at this cabin. There is reliable cell reception. However, access to data is slow and spotty. Don’t plan on having a Zoom meeting here.

What electronics can I use at the cabin?

There is one outlet in the kitchen for charging your phone and laptop but charging multiple phones / laptops will drain the cabin’s battery quickly. We DO NOT recommend using the outlet for high voltage items like hairdryers, coffee makers, kitchen appliances, etc. This is a low voltage outlet and power outages will result. Health-related items like CPAP machines cannot be accommodated at our cabins. Feel free to reach out to for clarification on what machines/electronics can be used at our cabins. 

Are there bugs or critters?!

You bet. Depending on the season, you’ll encounter bugs of all sorts. Bugs, rodents and wildlife are a reality of the wilderness. Guests should come prepared with bug spray and proper protective attire. Ticks have also been a major issue across Ontario. Please do your research ahead of time and learn how to properly check yourself for ticks. 

While we do our best to protect our cabins from pesky critters by having them seasonally sprayed, critters can sometimes find their way into the cabin. That’s why it’s important to keep your food sealed and stored. If you’re squeamish around bugs or critters, you may want to consider another kind of getaway.

Is this cabin pup friendly?

In order to keep noise levels to a minimum and to consider all our guests on-site, we do not allow pets at any Cabinscape Camp developments. If you can’t bear to leave your pup at home, consider booking one of our pup-friendly cabins.
