  • Description

    Description

    Hello Travellers!
    We are Patrick and Amy and we live at a remote, off-grid lodge with our two young children and one happy dog.

    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. We host guests from all over Ontario and sometimes further to disconnect from their phones and reconnect with nature. 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 use renewable energy: primarily water turbine and supplemented by solar for power, a ram pump for running water, and our own gardens for fruit, vegetables and herbs. We have many projects on the go including finishing construction of the new lodge, renovating the cabins, expanding our trail system, cultivating our sustainable garden, and more. We will never ask our workawayers to help with anything related to our business.

    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.

    We expect our workawayers to work 4-5 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.

    We have one rustic cabin with 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.
