Nestled in the heart of the Hastings Highlands, this suite offers a beautiful view of lake Kamaniskeg. Our home sits atop a hill on 33 acres of forest with winding trails and an abundance of wildlife. Only a 10 minute drive to Combermere and the unrivalled Madawaska river. Very close proximity to a wide array of sandy beaches, historical sites and parks. Perfect place for families, friends, couples, and weary travellers. I'm off to the woods to forget my mind and find my soul. Breath and be.
“We drove out of our way to stay at Zach's place and it was well worth the drive! We arrived just as the sun was setting and we were able to get our fist look at the spectacular view from the backyard and then realized we also get that view from our guest suite. Zach greeted us when we arrived and showed us around and made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The bathroom was large and bright. The living area had a TV space, dining space and sleep space which were all individually spacious while being open concept. the dining area had a mini fridge and coffee area. It also had a dual burner(portable) and some pots and pans for some basic cooking which would be very useful in a pinch. The bed was very comfortable and was great after we watched Avengers Endgame, which was part of the DVD collection. I woke up early to catch the sunrise and it was definitely worth losing an extra hour of sleep. I would highly recommend Zach's place and might be back in the summer if we make it back to Algonquin park.”
Ideal for canoe enthusiasts looking for a warm shower and good sleep. Perfect for cyclists doing day trips amongst the hills and lakes or motorcyclist riding the best roads in Ontario. Perfect for an evening in the hot tub under the stars and a mid night swim in the river. You will be staying in an old Irish settlement beneath the same white pines that our native Canadians rested during their voyages up & down the Madawaska.
“Hugh is a great host! If you’re ever unsure of something just head over and ask him! This is a beautiful little cabin with views of pine trees as far as the eye can see and access to the river. There is access to a canoe, paddle boat, and kayak. You can swim right off the dock, or enjoy a soak in the hot tub if that’s more your style (it was for us). The cabin has a double bed, bathroom with shower, coffee maker with coffee, and a fan. Directly off the cabin in a porch with a table and 2 chairs. You also have access to your own bbq and picnic table. We brought our own camp stove and kitchen gear (coolers included) which covered everything that wasn’t included with the cabin. There’s also a sink available to do your dishes. There are many hammocks around the property that Hugh is generous enough to let you use (we brought our own and set it up right outback from the cabin for some added privacy). Hugh is around if you ever need anything but isn’t overbearing or intrusive! Highly recommend staying here!”
