Ember cabin is a trailside, hike-in retreat located directly on the Tay-Havelock rail trail overlooking the Fall River. This “Cabinscape” is the perfect base camp for cyclists, hikers and paddlers wanting a place to relax and unwind after a day of adventuring. Visitors will park at the public trailhead and hike or bike a few short minutes (500 meters approx) along the trail to our private property in the woods.
Winter Disclaimer: This cabin is a hike-in cabin when the snow becomes too difficult to drive through. Guests are provided with snow-shoes and a sled to haul in their gear. Please note running water is shut off in late October when temperatures fall below freezing. Drinking and dishwashing water is provided. Winter weather can be challenging. Guests must be comfortable, equipped and acknowledge the inherent risks in staying in this winter backcountry environment.
???? Winter Hike-in: Easy: Ember cabin is a level 600 Meter hike in
Ember cabin offers a clean, minimalist, rustic and open-concept space designed for 1-3 guests. This riverside cabin comes equipped with a 4-burner stove; mini fridge; BBQ; queen and twin bed; and an indoor bathroom/shower. Guests looking for an adventure can hike or cycle the Tay-Havelock trail or take our canoe out and explore the river and its connecting lakes.
PLEASE BE AWARE
Ember cabin is located directly on the Tay-Havelock trail (part of the Trans Canada trail network and the longest recreational trail in the world). This trail is a public mixed-use trail used by hikers, cyclists and ATV's. Depending on the day, you may hear others using the trail in the distance. Our cabin is located on private property out of sight and at a comfortable distance from the trail itself.
Ember cabin is not accessible by car. Guests must park their car at the trailhead and walk (about 5-minutes), cycle or ATV to our cabin. If cycling, we recommend bringing mountain or gravel bikes for this type of terrain.
There are dogs that live on a neighbouring property that borders the trail. They may bark at your approach but they stay to their own property and do not approach the trail. If you are bringing along a dog, you should keep them leashed when hiking in to the cabin.
The shoreline from our cabin is shallow (2-3 feet deep) with a flat, rocky bottom making it a refreshing wading area 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.
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 13-minutes from the village of Sharbot Lake and 18-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. If you're up for the exercise, you can also hike or cycle to either town via the Tay-Havelock trail.
Conveniently located just over an hour from Kingston, 1.5 from Ottawa and 3 from Toronto.
