Unplug at our remote cabin, perfect for watching wildlife, swimming, ice fishing, snow shoeing, hiking and enjoying nature at its best. Our cabin is equipped with a big wood heater, propane lights and a Canadian made Napoleon BBQ and Smoker. For cooking inside we have a propane stove, cast iron pots and pans and plenty of cups, cutlery and manual coffee makers and grinders.
You will need to bring your own drinking water, bedding and candles for that romantic touch.
Welcome to Porter Lake, an off the grid, open concept, 20x20 ft, rustic cabin, south of Lake Nippising Ontario. The cabin overlooks a private lake and is surrounded by 100 acres of deciduous carolinian forest. Porter Lake is accessible year round by a guided ATV through back farmlands and a corduroy road.
The loft cabin has a large main floor living area with a single bed and wood stove that keeps it cozy. There is a 10 ft farmer’s table and vintage propane stove/oven for meals, pumped well water and basic cooking utensils are provided. A Napolean barbecue off the screened porch overlooking the lake is also available. The cabin is lit with candles or propane lanterns for dark evenings. You will see stars! In the large loft area, there are three more double beds.
The brand new fancy outhouse is a 30-foot walk past the woodshed. A ration of wood is provided as part of your stay. If more is required you can forage your own or buy some from Peter. There are two fire pit areas, one in front of the cabin, with a picnic table for relaxing, the other a short walk through the woods, at swim rock, a natural jumping off area for a swim or boat launch. Porter Lake is completely secluded, surrounded by crown land. You may not need your bathing suit!
Our cabin is your cabin. No locks. Enjoy.
The cabin is atv or snowmobile accessible only. We can provide you with a
ride in and out for $40. It is a really nice 20 minute walk/snow shoe to the cabin. There is no hydro or indoor plumbing which makes
it a perfect winter wonderland.
Interaction with guests
Your host Peter Learn is only a few miles away and you can arrange to have him provide as much or as little assistance as your desire.
Other things to note
Our cabin is located on a 100 acre's of land on a Private Lake. There is not electricity. Bring your own bedding and any personal comforts you may require. Think "Glamping".
Our cabin loves having people under its roof. Please do your best to leave the cabin as you would like to have it when you arrive. We do not charge a cleaning fee. That does not mean we don't clean the cabin and maintain the property. It does mean we ask our guests to leave the cabin and the lake as you found it and hopefully even better.
