A beautiful hike and paddle through a private trail and two isolated lakes brings you to our cozy off-grid A-frame cabin on a remote lake, surrounded by moose pasture and the soaring granite cliffs of the Canadian Shield. Reachable only by canoe, which we supply - no portaging is required. A back-country adventure to a cozy cabin!

The space
Our cabin is located on a remote lake deep in the Mississagi Provincial Park in Northern Ontario, a very rural and rugged area of the province. The cabin is completely isolated and off-grid, and is accessible only by hiking over moderate terrain and canoeing two lakes. The trek is about 7km, roughly half of which is hiking and half is paddling. It normally takes about two hours – not including time along the way for rest stops, exploring and picnics!

No portaging is required, as two canoes are cached on each lake.

The cabin itself is a cozy and comfortable hand-built A-frame cottage with a sandy beach and wood-fired sauna. It is the only cabin on the lake and the isolated wilderness setting means there is no electricity or running water.

Water jugs filled in the lake for drinking, candles for light, a four burner gas stovetop for cooking and woodstove for warmth make this the perfect escape for those looking for back-to-basic rustic comfort - with a touch of elegance!

IMPORTANT: Guests should have a solid background in hiking, canoeing, and not be afraid to spend time alone in the outdoors. If this is your first time camping in the backcountry, this may not be the adventure for you!

COVID 19 NOTE: Because of the remote location of the cabin, we aren't able to get in to clean ourselves between guests, so guests will be responsible for ensuring everything is disinfected before they leave. We will be providing extra eco-friendly cleaning supplies to facilitate this. We will be ensuring there is at least one night of vacancy between all reservations to ensure distance is maintained and the air is cleared between guests. Guests will be required to provide their own bedding, towels and dish cloths.

Guest access
Our guests have full and exclusive access to the cabin and its surroundings, which includes a fold-down bed downstairs, two amazingly comfortable 6" foam mattresses upstairs. There are two outdoor campfire pits, a beautiful sand beach for swimming, two canoes with paddles (you'll need to bring your own life jackets), a woodstove to heat the cabin if necessary, a clean outhouse with a magnificent view, a lakeside hand-built picnic table and a beautiful cedar hand-built sauna. Millions of stars are an extra bonus!

Other things to note
This is a back country camping experience with the benefit of a lovely cabin at the end of the trail, so you will need to bring in all your own food - you will need to pack light as it's a long hike in! Due to Covid 19 we will not be providing bedding or towels for guests this summer. All cooking supplies, utensils, plates etc. are provided.

Location

Thessalon, Ontario, Canada

This part of Northern Ontario is remote, rugged, peaceful and serene. Frobel Lake is an isolated lake miles from civilization and is located in a provincial park which was created specifically because of the old growth forests around Frobel Lake, which boasts large white pines up to 250 years old. Looncalls and moose sightings are frequent....we can't say enough about how beautiful this place is!

I am a farmer, outdoor enthusiast, community artist and social entrepreneur who is passionate about the intersection of the arts and community development and social justice. I am an avid traveler and have lived in Toronto, Scotland and England. My husband and I (and now our toddler son!) have been hosting people at our outpost cabin since 2010 and love the opportunity to expose visitors to the peace and serenity of this amazing part of the province. We have recently taken over my parents' tourist resort where I grew up - I'm the fourth generation of our family to manage this property! I care deeply about this area and love to share my local knowledge with our guests. I love to canoe, camp, read, travel, cook good food, think interesting thoughts and learn from interesting people.
