This is a once in a lifetime experience in the boreal forest of Northern Canada. The land resides within a national park and historic waterway. The primary route of the fur traders of the Hudson Bay company for more than 200 years passes by the door. You can see almost any animal, fish or bird of the Canadian north in this still pristine forest. We offer a booking for 4 people where you can hike , canoe, kayak, fish, swim or simply relax and enjoy the spectacular view.
This almost 3 acre secluded location backs onto national park lands and boasts more than 1200 feet of shoreline on the French River, which meanders through bays and islands that stretch for miles. The views are spectacular of the lake, the river and the surrounding untouched forests. Late night camp fires, the northern lights and outdoor BBQ s create a wonderful experience. The cottage is a 2 bedroom cottage with an additional romantic bunkhouse for an additional 2 couple.

I enjoy variety - but my favorite things are reading, fishing, sports, travel, people and great food. I enjoy good company and discussions on a wide range of eclectic topics but I also like quiet moments that allow me to savour the natural world in all its beauty. I also like immersing myself in the unique cultures of countries and people that I visit with.
