Inside the cabin was warm and welcoming. The fireplace alone was worth the drive! Our two guides, Nick & Andrea were friendly, well educated, entertaining and a whole lot of fun! All of the prepared meals were amazing and even the snacks were fantastic! You won’t go hungry! There were plenty of opportunities to keep busy and have fun from the torch lit luge run, guided hikes, “learn to ski” tutorial and the grand finale of dog sledding.
The hikes provided many breathtaking & spectacular views for some glorious photo ops. There was also ample time to self explore, unwind and recharge. We took advantage of the frozen lake and enjoyed a successful ice fishing adventure as well. The sauna and hot shower was a welcome pleasure after enjoying the leisurely days of playing in the great outdoors. Cell phone reception (with Bell) was spotty, but there were a couple of areas where a signal could be reached such as at the top of the luge, and 200 yards from the cabin on the lake.
The scenery and seclusion was a welcome change from the everyday and we saw and heard many signs of wildlife including moose tracks, a beaver in the dam, owls hooting at night, red squirrels and many birds. This included several blue jays that seemed to have taken up residence at the cabin!
It was a vacation that we will always treasure and highly recommend to anyone that enjoys the splendour of the wilderness and will appreciate the grandeur of the rustic, electricity free log cabin. Remember to tip your guides as they are at your service pretty much 24/7.
