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.

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.

In the winter months, our Micro Cabins are only accessible by snowmobile or ATV. Hiking to the cabin is not permitted and poses a safety hazard as there is only one road into the property. Once inside the property, guests can snowshoe the many frozen lakes onsite or along the snowshoe-only trails. All other trails are dedicated to snowmobilers. Haliburton Forest’s unique location at the top of the Algonquin Dome makes it the ultimate destination for winter ATVing conditions!

The snowmobile season typically runs early December until mid-March but this ultimately depends on weather conditions.


What makes this location awesome? 

This Cabinscape is located in the Haliburton Highlands of Ontario, an area best known for their rolling hardwood forests, pristine lakes and extensive wetlands grounded firmly on the Canadian Shield. Our micro cabins are located right within Haliburton Forest’s Base Camp, giving you access to their extensive trail system; delicious meals at their Cookhouse Restaurant; Camp Store; and much more. The picturesque waterfront town of Haliburton is a 25-minute drive away. Take a day trip for great shopping, cafes, restaurants and events.

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 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. (In response to Covid-19, we have removed ALL bedding and towels from our cabins).
  • Firewood 
  • Bug repellent
  • Hand sanitizer

Does this cabin have running water or a shower?

  • No. Our Micro cabins do not have running water. We provide 40L of water for dish washing and drinking. Public showers are available in the comfort stations at Base Camp.

Can I bring additional guests?

  • No. This cabin can only accommodate up to 2 guests plus 1 pup. The base rental rate includes 2 guests. If you’re bringing a pup, 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.

Do you provide snowmobile rentals?

From December to mid March (weather dependant), snowmobiles are available for rent at Haliburton Forest’s Main Office. Driver’s must have a valid driver’s license or the equivalent Motorized Snow Vehicle Operator’s License.

Cabinscape guests receive $49/off per day their vehicle rentals. Snowmobile rentals must be made separately from your cabin accommodation, directly with Haliburton Forest. Rates range from $274.00/day during weekdays (Monday-Thursday) to $324.00/day on weekends (Friday-Sunday). Please arrange your snowmobile rental well in advance of arriving for your visit. We recommend calling Haliburton Forest (1-800-631-2198) to make your reservation and discuss your options. You can pick up your rental the morning before check-in to use the trails for the day, or in the evening of your check-in (between 4:00-4:30 pm). Please note, a $3,500 returnable damage deposit will be required for snowmobile rentals.

If you are unable to secure a rental with Haliburton Forest, please let us know. There are other outfitters in the area that we can suggest.


Can I bring my own snowmobile or ATV?

For guests with access to their own snowmobile or ATV’s, a valid drivers license (or Motorized Snow Vehicle Operator’s License) is required. Ownership and insurance per vehicle must also be presented to Haliburton Forest staff in the Main Office upon check in. (Side-by-side vehicles are not permitted in the forest.)

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! 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.
