Camp in comfort! This private off grid cabin is located at Deacon Escarpment Cabins, Camping and Trails overlooking the natural beauty of Golden Lake. Your getaway begins the moment you arrive with a scenic 1.5 km hike to your cabin or for a small fee arrange for a UTV shuttle. Ideal for a couple or family with access to scenic lookouts, hiking trails, canoes (included) and outfitting packages. A great home base to relax by a campfire after exploring the many attractions of the Ottawa Valley.
A furnished one room cabin with propane fireplace, solar lighting, queen bunk bed and private deck view of the Bonnechere Valley. Includes your own BBQ and campfire pit, picnic table, canoe, and outhouse box. Campfire wood available for purchase. The forest and ponds of the escarpment provide wildlife viewing year round especially in the winter for the whitetail deer migration. Don't forget your camera!
Campers enjoy access to a escarpment picnic area which is breathtaking for autumn leaf viewing, as well as marked hiking/snowshoeing trails including a trail that leads to a small lake with canoes reserved for cabin quests. Bring a field guide along on a hike to help you identify plants and wildlife--available in your cabin.
Hosts may be reached by text or phone call during your stay. A $30 shuttle fee gives you an optional UTV ride to and from your cabin upon check in/out. Rides throughout your stay will be a $10 charge per ride; alternatively, take a scenic hike or bicycle to the cabin--the trail to the escarpment is hilly!
Want to fish or book a guided hike? Guided and outfitting opportunities are available upon request. Fish shack rentals are also available.
Want the best of both worlds? Camp in comfort: we can have your groceries/meals/equipment at the cabin for a fair fee. Great for people on a snowmobile tour or for surprising someone with a weekend getaway! Add a "Couples Package" which includes cozy bedding set up for you, complimentary bottle of wine, smores kit, flowers and candles. Call us for details...we would love to customise the package for you as well:)
Our forested nature trails are mostly rugged with seasonal wet areas. The escarpment has steep drops in places; please keep an eye on your children!
Quality hiking shoes or boots for your hike are strongly advised.
Late May-July is our main mosquito season. Insect repellent, pants with long sleeve shirt and bug jacket is recommended.
Cell service available: cabins are located close to a cell tower.
Well-behaved pets are welcome. Please keep them close or on a leash so they do not chase animals.
We were born and raised in the Ottawa Valley, so it is no surprise that we have chosen this amazing place to raise our family and to start a business that incorporates all the natural beauty of the area.
Being in the outdoors and teaching our children to appreciate nature is a big priority for us. Most of our vacations are based around exploring new places, camping, hunting and fishing. These experiences keep us connected and create amazing memories.
Our goal is to provide a private place for you to discover. A quiet place with rural hospitality, woods, wetlands, lakes and wildlife.
