Our Calabogie cabins (Starling, Finch and Wren) are located on the forested grounds of Calabogie Peaks Resort, suspended above the shores of Calabogie Lake near the base of Dickson Mountain. Each cabin offers expansive views of the lake and land below with direct access to some of the best hiking trails in Southern Ontario. Experience breathtaking views, world class hiking, cycling, skiing, and more. Explore thousands of acres of crown land through the lush Ottawa Valley — including the renown Eagles Nest lookout!
 
As part of our partnership with Calabogie Peaks Resort, Resort Day Passes (optional) are available to Cabinscape guests who want the full resort experience. The resort offers limitless seasonal activities like snowboarding, paddling, tennis, a public beach, golf course, spa and two on-site restaurants.
 
Located away from the main resort on a secluded part of the property, all three cabins are identical in design and come with their own fire pit, BBQ and picnic table. Each cabin is located about 200-300 metres apart from its neighbour on its own forested lot. These cabins are ideal for guests who prefer to be close to amenities with access to lots of outdoor activities. (If you’re looking for a more remote/backcountry wilderness experience, you’ll want to check out our medium or high remote level cabins). 

 

Access: AWD or 4WD vehicle recommended (or a short hike in from the parking area)

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.


LEAVE NO TRACE 

All garbage and recycling must be packed up and taken to the Haliburton Forest dump onsite upon your departure.

Are there bugs & 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?

No, I am sorry. This cabin is not pup friendly. But check out our Wren cabin nearby which is pup-friendly.
