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.


  • Relax, Canoe, Fish, Read, Stargaze.
  • Hike or Bike the Tay Havelock Trail 
  • Visit Silver Lake Provincial Park for sandy beach access (4 minute drive)
  • Visit Sharbot Lake Provincial Park for rugged hiking and public beach (10 minute drive)
  • Visit historic Perth village (15 minute drive)
  • Visit Sharbot Lake village (10 minute drive)


Juniper cabin is our most easy to access cabin, conveniently located just off Highway 7 in a secluded spot on the river. Depending on the day, you may hear sounds from the road. But mostly these sounds are masked by the cascading lull of the Fall River at your doorstep. If you are looking for a remote wilderness experience, you should check out our cabins with “medium” or “high” levels of remoteness. See FAQs below for more information.


In the Summer and Fall months, only high clearance cars with 4WD can access this cabin. Our laneways are not plowed in the winter months. This means that all our cabins become “hike-in access only” when the snow gets too deep to drive through. Guests visiting us in November should ensure that they have a suitable car equipped with snow tires. Please be aware that snowfall as early as November may mean that you’ll need to hike into your cabin. We’ll provide you with snowshoes and a sled to haul your gear.  Consider it an adventure! 


What makes this location awesome? 

This Cabinscape is located in Maberly, Ontario, in Tay Valley Township, an area known for pristine swimming, mature forests and steep rock faces. From the cabin you are just 4-minutes away from Silver Lake Provincial Park where you’ll find a public beach, and just 3-minutes away from the Tay- Havelock trailhead (connected to the Trans-Canada Trail). Looking for a day trip in town? From the cabin you are just 10-minutes from the village of Sharbot Lake and 15-minutes from the historic (and adorably quaint town) of Perth. Here is where you’ll find anything you might need: groceries, LCBO, Beer Store, great cafes, theatre, restaurants and great shopping.

Can I swim in the river?

The shoreline from our cabin is shallow (2-3 feet deep) with a flat, rocky bottom making it a refreshing wading area (especially in the “waterfall” section of the river) but not ideal for deep swimming. For good swimming options, consider visiting one of the nearby public beaches at Silver Lake Provincial Park or Sharbot Lake or paddling to deeper water.

How remote is this cabin?

Juniper is very easy to access and right off the highway in a secluded spot on the river. While our guests are on their own inlet of land, this is not a backcountry cabin. Due to various environmental factors and the seasons, the water levels can be low and you may hear more traffic sounds from the road. This is one of our “low” remote cabins. If you’d like a more backcountry experience away from amenities and road noises, choose one of our “high” remote cabins.

When is check-in and check-out?

Entry is by lock-box and key. Check in time is 4 pm. Check-out is 12 pm.

What if I need assistance during my stay?

We are always just a 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

When is running water shut off?

Our water is pumped from the lake. Running water is shut off when temperatures dip below freezing. This normally happens mid-October but can vary each year.  When running water is shut off, we provide 40L of water for dish washing and drinking. All taps (including shower taps) are turned off. Water is turned back on before the May Long Weekend.

Can I bring additional guests?

No. This cabin can only accommodate up to 2 guests plus 2 pups. The base rental rate includes 2 guests. If you’re bringing a pup (or two), please select the “Pet Pal” option at checkout.

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 pet friendly?

Yes! You are more than welcome to bring your furry friend for an extra fee of $25/per night. Select the “Pet Pal” option at checkout. Up to two dogs per booking is permitted. (We do not make exceptions to this rule).

Is the canoe available to use year round?

No. In an effort to ensure safe paddling practices at our cabins, we only offer our canoes when the water is at safe temperature (especially important in the event of an unexpected capsizing). When it is safe to paddle, typically between mid-April and early-November, this cabin comes with a complimentary rental canoe, two paddles, two adult PFDs and a bailing kit for our guests to enjoy during their stay.

*Please note: Juniper Cabin is situated on an active river, and guests must be able to paddle upstream to return to the cabin after exploring for the day. During the spring, the runoff from the snow & rain makes for a more powerful flow, making an upstream paddle close to impossible. For this reason, the canoe may not be available at this cabin specifically until May.*

If you are coming during the shoulder season, and would like to confirm whether the canoe will be available for your stay, please reach out to with your reservation dates.
