The best getaways in Ontario: valley rentals
Set on an escarpment overlooking Golden Lake, this cabin rental is located near Bonnechere Valley, Ontario, and can accommodate up to six adults and two children. Inside the cabin, guests will find two bedrooms, one bathroom --- no shower, a living room, and a kitchen. Each of the bedrooms is furnished with a single-over-double bunk bed set. There is also a couch and a floor mattress, on which guests can sleep in the living room. There is also an extra bedroom heater for winter guests.
In the living room, guests will also find a chair and a solar-powered television on which movies can be played through a USB drive. The bathroom contains an odorless composting flush toilet, and a sink with a vanity.

Outside, guests will find a deck, a campfire pit with log seating and a grate for cooking, a barbecue grill, a picnic table, a canoe with life jackets and paddles a 25 minute hike from the cabin, and a private trail that crosses a small wooden bridge and wraps around a spring-fed pond that provides a habitat for abundant wildlife and plant-life.
With the combination of the trails, the canoe, and the cabin's secluded, woodland, and lakeside setting, guests will thus be able to reconnect to the great outdoors and enjoy a peaceful, revitalizing getaway amid the natural splendor of the surrounding escarpment, Golden Lake, Bonnechere River Valley, and Ottawa Valley, an impressive Ontario valley.
