About Our Hostel
Our private hostel accommodation includes log cabins, bunkhouses (private quarters in small, multi-user lodges with a private, outdoor entrance), and bedrooms in the main lodge. Guests staying in this type of accommodation enjoy the privacy of their own sleeping quarters but share bathroom, kitchen, and lounge facilities with others staying at the hostel. While our main lodge rooms and bunkhouses are open year-round, the log cabins in this category (the Deer cabin, the Beaver cabin, and Ben’s cabin) are closed from the end of October to May 1st.
Our dorms are excellent for solo travellers, backpackers, folks on a tight budget, or for groups of 6-8 people. These are large post-and-beam rooms with high ceilings, each hosting up to 8 people in single beds. Normally these dorms are shared with other guests but you are welcome to book the entire room for your group if you prefer. Guests staying in the backpackers’ dorms share bathroom, kitchen, and lounge facilities with others staying at the hostel.
Folks staying in our dorms and private hostel accommodation have full access to our common kitchen, bathroom, and lounge facilities including:
- A large, fully equipped self-catering kitchen in the main lodge complete with cookware, cutlery, plates, bowls and glasses, soap and wash up gear, a commercial-sized fridge, a small freezer, dry food storage and excellent drinking water (no need to bring up bottled water, please!)
- Two dining areas inside the main lodge, and an outdoor BBQ area, picnic tables, and a covered gazebo just outside
- Three toilets and 2 showers inside the main lodge and an outdoor 3-season wash station with 3 more showers, toilets and sinks outside (closed from the end of October until May 1st)
- A gorgeously comfortable lounge where you can relax after your hike or paddle and engage with other guests
- A perfect swimming spot on the Oxtongue River with a dock to leap from or sun-bathe on
- Beautiful gardens to sit and watch the butterflies, birds, and clouds go by
- A communal fire pit where you might meet folks from all over the globe
