These log cabins, set in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, are 480 square feet in size and are all located in a secluded area to ensure maximum the utmost privacy for guests. Each handcrafted log cabin has an en suite bathroom. Each cabin is equipped with a queen-size bed and either a double fold-down futon or a sofa. They all come set with a full bathroom which provides a bathtub, and a shower unit with hot and cold running water and indoor plumbing. Inside, guests will find a wood-burning stove and double propane burner for hot coffee, tea or chocolate. All bedding, linens, kindling and firewood are provided for guests convenience.
Due to the remote location of the cabins, there is no cooking allowed in the accommodations. Instead, the hosts prepare hearty, wholesome and family-style meals in the rustic communal cook house. The hosts also offer delicious, freshly baked goods from the wood cook stove. Please let the hosts know about preferences or food allergies beforehand so that meals can be prepared to guests liking. The signature dishes include a great slab of choice Alberta Grade-A beef, sizzled cowboy-style over an open campfire, or a prime rib, first seared and then roasted in a succulent western sauce in the wood burning stove. Dishes are accompanied by locally grown, wild vegetables and herbs.
After dinner, relax and relate the day's adventure around the crackling campfire with family and friends. This is truly the perfect accommodation for seeing the Rocky Mountains, Canada.

There are numerous trails near starting from the cabins or the nearby Rock Lake. Trails range from easy to difficult to fit guests' desires and abilities. During the hike, guests will be able to spot different wildflowers, fossils, birds, native wildlife and the stunning surrounding mountains ranges and valleys. Hikes can take up to eight hours. The hosts will frequently take guests up to the Rock Lake Viewpoint after the evening meal for the best opportunity to view wildlife without disturbing them.
Guests are welcome to use the canoe on site and head to Rock Lake or the chain of lakes in Switzer Park. The hosts will provide transportation to and from the lakes.
Horseback riding can be arranged on a hourly, half-day or full day excursion with specialty outfitters closer to Hinton. Multi-day horseback pack trips, either with tent camping in Willmore Wilderness or rustic cabin accommodation along the front ranges of the Rockies, can also be arranged. All of these trips are fully guided, catered and outfitted.
Take the Rocky Mountains Birdwatching and stroll down to a gravel bar on Munn Creek accompanied by a guide. Guests can spot warblers, sparrows, finches, jays and juncos singing in the trees. On Rock Lake, they can watch waterfowl, eagles, hawks, and the ever-present songbirds.
A trusted whitewater rafting company offers floating trips on the Smoky River, a half-day trip on the Sulphur River or a full-day trip on the Sulphur River/Sheep Creek combo. June to mid-July are the best time for thrilling whitewater rafting adventures.
Crosscountry skiing and snowshoeing:
The best snow conditions usually occur in February and March, although one can typically go skiing and 'shoeing by the end of November. Once the snow is ski-able, the hosts will groom and track-set between 30 and 50 km of trail. After a fresh snowfall, prints left by active timber wolves, cougars, martens, wolverines, elk, deer or moose are readily apparent. Bring a camera and capture frost glistening on the trees, the branches of willows and poplar bending under the heavy snow or the sky bursting into flames as the winter sun turns the horizon bright orange. The hosts provide ski equipment such as skis, boots, poles and snowshoes at no additional charge.
