Our eco-cabins are completely OFF-GRID. (Don’t let this scare you). Our cabins are modernized and solar powered with electricity and heat. Feel good knowing that you’re choosing a low-carbon, eco-friendly getaway. With off-grid cabins, 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. All our cabins have a back-up generator when solar power is low.
LEAVE NO TRACE
All garbage and recycling must be packed up and taken home on your departure.
- There are a limited number of these experiences that we can accommodate on weekends and holidays
- In the winter, the Rocks & Woods Route requires winter tires and may require a hike in of up to 300m. The Peaks & Valleys route may require a winter hike-in of up to 1km.
- Our cabins do not have running water from mid October to May Long Weekend. 40L of potable water is provided for drinking and dish washing during this time.
- Fishing is not permitted at these locations.
How far do I have to travel?
Each trip is customized for each reservation based on your homebase location. The trip will feature overnight stops en route to your location. It takes under 2 hours (140km) to get from the first overnight stop to the second overnight stop, but keep in mind, there will be recommended stops along the way.
PLEASE NOTE: We require 48 hours notice (i.e. 2 business days) to prepare these custom itineraries.
Can I bring my pup?
Yes! While we typically do not allow pups on our Kawartha property, we are making a special exception for guests who want to bring their pups on this adventure. Be sure to select the “pet pal” option during booking, so we can ensure your itinerary is developed with your furry friend in mind!
When do I have to leave?
Ultimately, it’s up to you! All our itineraries feature 3-5 stops per day, and while we recommend getting an early start to take advantage of the opportunity to fully explore each stop, by no means is it required. The relevant details and operating hours for each stop are listed in your itinerary, so you can make a decision what will work best for you. Cabin Chasers are welcome to check into their cabins as early as 3PM, meaning the earlier you make it to the site, the more you can explore the beautiful lakes and trails on our property!
How do I prepare?
We will send your custom itinerary 5-10 days before your visit, with details on approximately how long each stop will take. While there will be surprise stops along the way, we will highlight any recommended stops that require pre-booking (and provide details on how to book). It is the guest’s responsibility to coordinate the arrangements for these particular stops.
Beyond that, guests simply need to pack for their adventure. Our recommended list includes:
- Your own food & drink
- Your own towels, sheets, pillows, pillow cases and blankets
- Bug repellent
- Hand sanitizer
What if I need assistance during my stay?
We are always a text or email away for any questions or assistance. Our on-call property manager lives nearby and can be available on-site when needed.
Will I have access to running water or a shower during my stay?
Running water is turned off by Oct 15th. Our cabins do not have running water in the colder season. We provide 40L of water for dish washing and drinking.
Can I bring additional guests?
Yes, but the baseline adventure is designed to accommodate 2 guests. One additional guest over 12 or two guests 12 and under are also permitted provided the “Family Experience” option is selected at checkout. If you are bringing a pup, please select the “Pet Pal” option at checkout.
Is there WIFI or cell service?
There is NO WIFI access at our cabins. There is reliable cell reception. However, access to data is slow and spotty. Don’t plan on having a Zoom meeting during your trip.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
