"Experience One of the Top 10 Snowmobiling Destinations in North America"
As part of our partnership with Haliburton Forest & Wild Life Reserve, Trail Passes for each guest are included in the rental price for the duration of your stay. With this pass, you’ll have access to over 400 km of well developed and carefully maintained snowmobile and winter ATV trails. Haliburton Forest’s unique location at the top of the Algonquin Dome makes it the ultimate destination for winter ATVing conditions!
From December to March, 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/day off 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 $2,500 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.
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.)
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.)
Hike-in Access Only (Nov-Early December) - 1 km or approximately 20 minutes
Moss Cabin 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.
-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 “Forestry Walk Trail” (a 1km snowshoe-only trail). All other trails are dedicated to snowmobilers.
-The snowmobile season typically starts the first weekend of December but this ultimately depends on weather conditions. Guests visiting during this transition period in December should be prepared to hike into their campsite (1km) if snowmobiling season is delayed due to conditions.
Located 3 hours from Toronto and 3 hours & 45 minutes from Ottawa.
