    Hello Travellers!
    We are Patrick and Amy and we run the lodge with our two young children and one happy dog. We host guests from all over Ontario and sometimes further to disconnect from their phones and reconnect with nature.

    The lodge was established in 1947, and 4 of the property's 7 cabins are the original log cabins with additions added over the years. The original lodge burned down in 2015. We have many projects on the go including finishing construction of the new lodge, renovating the cabins, expanding our trail system, cultivating a sustainable garden, and improving the ways in which our guests experience the outdoors. Our goal is to make the lodge a getaway from the city for families and others looking for peace and quiet and wilderness adventure.

    We are located between two lakes on the Chiniguchi River water system. The area displays the best of northern Ontario with tall ancient pine trees and there is history to be discovered in the old log cabins and railway system.

    Arbeit

    We expect our workawayers to work 4 hours each day for 5 days a week in exchange for food and accommodation. For those keen to work harder than that, with approval, we are able to offer a wage for hours worked above the initial 4 hours at a rate of $14.35 (the minimum wage for Ontario). Please let us know if you have professional experience and we will set up an interview to discuss employment. Outside of working hours, we expect everyone who stays with us to be a part of the lodge community by helping with dinner, dishes, and general clean up.

    The help we need varies by season, the list below is by no means comprehensive but includes many tasks you can expect to be a part of!

    Unterkunft

    We have one rustic cabin with a seating area and two double beds. There is an outhouse nearby and an outdoor shower with heated water available from April to October. There is electricity, however no running water in the cabin.
    We also have several rooms in the lodge. If you are coming in the winter, this is where you will stay as the lodge is always heated.
    We host multiple workawayers at a time, so you may be offered the cabin or a room in the lodge depending on availability. Wherever you stay, we share meals together in the lodge.
