This cedar-clad cabin in Central Ontario is surrounded by bucolic countryside and offers the wilds of a remote nature preserve. It is a very comfortable on-grid cabin, light, airy, and modern, yet peaceful, quiet, and private. It is winterized and open year-round. You'll only be a few minutes from shops and necessities but seemingly miles from civilization. There are 50 acres in which to roam, with trails, wildlife, fields and northern ontario forest. Ideal for short or long-term job placements, artists, writers, musicians, nature lovers, birdwatchers, etc.

The cabin is equipped... with one open loft bedroom upstairs that has a queen bed and and a single daybed. The main floor has an open-concept kitchen and living area and measures 20' x 24'. There is a brand new SCAN scandinavian high-efficiency wood-burning stove in the kitchen, which is the main source of heat in winter. Firewood is provided. The house is fully insulated. It has hydro, washer and dryer, one full indoor bathroom, and a screened-in deck with outdoor wrap-around deck. Water is 100% potable; back-up heat includes baseboard heaters, a portable infra-red heater, and a portable oil radiator if necessary, but typically a well-maintained fire in the woodstove does the trick.
The kitchen (see pic) is equipped with a 2-burner cooktop and small convection oven. No microwave is provided. Pots, pans, utensils, herbs & spices and basic condiments are also provided. There is also a gas BBQ on the deck.
Most pets are welcome, but please check with us first. The cabin is furnished and we supply everything you need for a truly comfortable stay. Linens, kitchen utensils, LCD TV, mini- stereo, microwave, coffee maker. The TV will play movies or shows you have downloaded to a USB key.
If you truly want to get away from it all, this is the place for you.
There is no internet service but Cellphones work well, depending on their quality/make. We have iPhones 3 & 5 and when the LTE network is unavailable, they switch over to the 3G or E networks and work well in certain spots in the cabin; they are on Fido and Rogers, and new towers have recently been installed in the township.
The cabin is located on a private road just outside of Powassan, Ontario and abuts the northwest corner of Algonquin Park. There are thousands of acres of crown land nearby, yet within 10 minutes you can have access to town which has a Beer Store, LCBO, hardware, groceries, restaurants, laundromat, farmer's market, gas station, mechanics, library, tennis courts, public pool, legion hall, cop-shop, and other conveniences. The grocery store in town offers a very decent selection of foods as well as organic produce. North Bay is only 30kms away should you need something from any big-box store, a movie night, or sushi.
The property is not on a lake but is very close to several lakes with public beaches, boat launches, and ice-fishing. There are also several extensive roads, trails and lakes throughout the crown lands next to our township which are ideal for trailriding, hiking, ATVing, and exploring. There are local dog-sledding expeditions available.
There is a network of trails on the property (intermediate) for hiking and snowshoeing.The area has several horse riding/boarding facilities like Knowlton Ridge and Eastwood Stables. There is a cross-country ski club Wassi Ski Club (no membership req'd), and nearby there are several OFSC trails. There are two golf courses within 10 minutes.
The area is ideal for hiking, canoeing, fishing, hunting, birdwatching, camping, exploring, photography, farming, mountain-biking, x-country skiing, snowmobiling, ATVing, boating, snowshoeing, or just relaxing. There are many lakes nearby in which to fish, swim, and frolic.
Allergy alert: although pets will not be present during your stay, both cats and dogs have stayed.
A refundable deposit of $250 is required.
It should be noted that the cabin is not suitable for children and our insurance requires that all guests under the age of 25 are accompanied by a parent or legal guardian and that no open-burning firepit is allowed.
