This rustic cabin retreat is located on Thompson Island, Quebec, overlooking beautiful Lake Kipawa, and can accommodate up to four guests. There are two bedrooms and a half bathroom.

Each bed is provided with a fitted sheet, and the host asks that guests bring along their own pillows, linens, and towels.

After a day spent fishing on the lake, the welcoming sitting area offers plenty of sofa space on which guests can relax in the evening. An inviting wood-burning stove will keep glampers cozy, providing ample warmth to heat the entire cabin. The kitchen comes fully equipped with a propane refrigerator and freezer, an oven, a stove, and a tea kettle, along with an array of handy dishes and utensils. Meals and drinks can be enjoyed at the dining table. Guests should be sure to provide their own drinking water.

This unique property is located on Thompson Island in Quebec. Glampers will adore the peace and seclusion of this island wilderness, which can be reached only by boat. The property is situated on Kipawa Lake, which is considered to be one of the most stunning lakes in Quebec. This is the ideal choice for guests who are looking for tranquility, natural beauty, and excellent fishing, and the setting is perfect for couples, families, and groups alike. The hosts offer a warm and friendly environment, and the native wildlife is just as welcoming. Guests who choose to hire a boat can visit the charming village of Kipawa or the larger town of Temiscaming for essential supplies, but it really isn't necessary for glampers to venture far from the property during their stay. The nearest airport can be found in North Bay, which is around 100 miles away.

Fishing is definitely the activity of choice at this property. Lake Kipawa is well known for having some of the best angling in Quebec. Every group of glampers will be provided with a boat, which has swivel seats and a motor. Guests need not worry about where to cast their lines, as they'll be outfitted with a fish finder. For added convenience, the host will also organize fishing licenses, bait, and ice. When glampers arrive back at the property after a busy day, there's an excellent fish cleaning station, where they can prepare their catches for the barbecue. Guests can reel in a variety of species, including walleye, trout, pike, white fish, and perch.

There are numerous other activities on offer on the lake, such as swimming, kayaking, water-skiing, and pedal boating. Guests who choose to hire a motorboat might enjoy a day trip to the ghost town of Hunters Point, with its old trading post and church, and its pristine and deserted beach. Canal Bay is also a great option for a sightseeing trip, with its natural canal and its towering cliffs. Those who prefer to stay on dry land can explore the island on foot, with a walk or a hike among stunning scenery and abundant wildlife. Glampers should be sure to take along their cameras for those unique and memorable photo opportunities. Some of the native creatures, such as the squirrels, can be hand fed, which many children in the group are sure to love.
