Woods, Wetlands, Lakes & Wildlife
The motivation behind the creation of this business came from a desire to share our love of the outdoors and the benefits of that connection with you. Our goal is to provide a private place for you to relax and reconnect with nature and the people with you. A quiet place with rural hospitality, woods, wetlands, lakes and wildlife just waiting to be discovered.
We want you to experience the beauty of the Ottawa Valley in ALL the seasons from the top of the Deacon Escarpment...
-- a unique elevated geographic area with rocky outcrops, oak savannah forest, pines, ponds and stunning views of Golden Lake in the Bonnechere Valley below.
Nature is truly breathtaking all year round, so naturally, we are open all year long so that you can hike or snowshoe, canoe or ice fish, tent camp or winter camp.
While you stay with us you can witness all the seasonal changes from your private location and along the trails: the brightness of the valley in bud, wonderous green, fall blaze to glistening white. Whatever you choose...our cabins and campsites were created to give you your own private spot to take it all in.
We offer our guests the opportunity to
LIVE LIFE OUTDOORS

Watch the trails change throughout the seasons. Walk through changing ecosystems from temperate forest, oak savanah, ponds, marshes--all of varying lengths and terrain to challenge everyone.

Reconnect, relax and leave feeling rejuvenated.

Take the road less traveled. Get away from the daily grind and visit places most people will never have the opportunity to see. After a comprehensive safety orientation, your guide will escort you deep into the beautiful Madawaska Valley in and around Barry's Bay Ontario. As the tour unfolds you will encounter, peaceful secluded forests, muddy water crossings, climb to the top of the Canadian shield, experience breathtaking views, and visit some of the most stunning & remote lakes in the area (Bring your bathing suit and enjoy a swim with an entire lake to yourself). Your tour will make regular stops to enjoy the scenery, take pictures, or have a snack and some refreshments. We always have a chance of spotting local wild life, including deer, moose, bob cats, owls, eagles, bears, wolves, & many other inhabitants of the Valley. You will discover something different around every corner. Every guided ATV tour offers something new and exciting. You will create memories and friendships that will last a life time! We keep our groups small to ensure a more personal experience for everyone. Book Today and Get Away From It All.
Snowshoe with "Trapperman" along his trap line and hear about his experiences in the Canadian bush, learn about the local wildlife and their habitats, and have a delicious campfire lunch. Bring your camera and hopefully get to see Golden & Bald Eagles from his viewing blind!
