Moss Cabin is located in Haliburton Forest & Wild Life Reserve on a cleared campsite surrounded by forest. Each of our Haliburton Forest Micro Cabins are about 100 meters apart from one another, offering guests relative privacy with the comfort of knowing others are close by. All three cabins are identical in design and come with their own fire pit, BBQ and picnic table.  (If you are looking for a more remote/private cabin experience, consider looking at our Wilderness Cabins for rent.)
 
As part of our partnership with Haliburton Forest & Wild Life Reserve, Day Passes for each guest are included in the rental price. These passes offer guests access to 100,000 acres of wilderness for each day of their stay. With over 400km of  trails to explore, you can hike, run, cycle and snowmobile to your heart’s content.

OFF-GRID BASICS 

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.

{SNOWMOBILE RENTAL DETAILS/RATES}

Is this cabin pet friendly?

Yes! This cabin is pup friendly, but please keep in mind that during the snowmobile season this is a high traffic area and we recommend that you leave your pup at home. For those that just can’t part with their furry companions, please keep them on leash at all times when outside the cabin. Pups are not allowed to walk on the snowmobile trails; they must be transported via snowmobile.
