Come stay in our cozy cabin nestled in the woods, alongside the Gatineau River. It’s just a short 15 minute drive from downtown Ottawa, followed by a beautiful five minute walk into the forest. This is truly an off-the-grid cabin experience with some perks, so come ready to disconnect and relax.
“This place was unreal. The location is within 10 - 15 minutes of downtown Ottawa but somehow you feel like you're in the middle of the woods right off the river. The view from the cabin itself was great. No matter what corner you looked out, there was nothing but trees with guided pathways from your parking spot or to the water. There was a firepit and barbecue outside within 10 feet of the wood supply and a few Muskoka chairs to chill out. The electricity is solar, and we had no issues charging multiple phones at once and had the exterior lights on for about 4-5 hours (we left them on by mistake). Only then did they start to flicker because of the lack of power. Inside the cabin there's a few board games, pots, pans, etc. If you're not an environmental junky then I might recommend bringing paper plates which you could use as fire kindling. We ended up boiling water which took about 5-10 minutes per use (which we didn't mind doing). She leaves you with a good supply of butane to run the portable stove, but no propane for the BBQ outside. All in all, this is an unreal place to chill for a weekend. You can easily sit back and relax with your favorite people, or even work using your phone's internet (LTE ran flawlessly). Carolyn was great. I noticed there was only 1 set of snowshoes, and without asking she brought a second. You're crazy if you don't like this place.”
The Woodland Hive is a four-season geodesic glamping dome and spa located in a private getaway surrounded by forest. The space has an outdoor cooking area with a barbecue, chiminea and yard. Included is a forest spa experience. Soak all of your stress away in the cedar wood-fired hot tub and relax in the cedar wood-fired sauna. It’s a perfect escape outside of the city, but still close to several attractions along the Fundy coast. Magical place any time of year!
“This was my second stay and again it was fantastic!! I loved that the fire was already lit in the Hottub and built in the sauna so that I could use it immediately! The entire space, both inside and out, is warm and welcoming! On a cool spring day it was great to enjoy the warmth of the sauna, hottub, BBQ and fire pit for my first roasted marshmallows of the season! The sounds of the birds and smell of the woods all contributed to a wonderful experience. I hope to visit here every 6months as it is extremely restorative and relaxing.”
Mid-island, this rustic cabin is perfect for any couple (or small group) shacking up in the woods. Features a full kitchen inside, outhouse, outdoor shower, fire pit, covered porch & access to pebble beach trails, making this a magical retreat.
“Such a magical place in the middle of the forest! The cabin is cozy and equipped with the basic and some more. The shower is a highlight with views into the woods! There is a hike that starts at the doorstep to the beach and a lovely cat to pet at night (if you want). We run into Jennifer and she was amazing, with great tips and even provided some grocery's we had forgotten (we came by bike, it's a long way to the grocery store:) 100% recommended, we didn't want to leave!”
