WINTER RENTALS: Auburn cabin will be a hike in adventure after the snow falls! Read full details for the Cabinscape winter experience.
Affectionately named after the small, rural village where she was built, Auburn cabin sits surrounded by tall oak, maple and cedar trees, perched above a quiet, motor-free lake.
A short stroll down a meandering pathway leads you to your private dock in a secluded part of the bay. Enjoy evening sunsets and campfires under the stars. Canoe, fish, swim or explore the extensive network of hiking and biking trails in the area.
Auburn cabin offers a clean, minimalist, rustic and open-concept design with lots of windows and light to bring the natural beauty of the outside in.

There will be a plowed clearing at the entrance of our laneway to park. We will provide you with two pairs of snow-shoes and a sled to haul your gear to the cabin.

• Day trip to Bon Echo Provincial Park (55 minute drive)
• Encounters with bugs, critters and animals are a reality of being in the wilderness. Come prepared. Bring along good bug spray and appropriate attire. The cabin has a screened-in sliding door and screened-in loft windows to keep bugs out but allow for a breezy, open interior.
• The last 500 metres of the laneway to our cabin is on a bumpy, dirt road. Our little Honda loves the adventure, but you might want to leave your Corvette at home.
ENERGY CONSUMPTION: As an off-grid, solar powered cabin, energy conservation is key. Please turn off lights when not in use, especially when you are outside of the cabin. Drawing too much energy may cause you to lose power, so please be mindful of your consumption. It should not be needed, but there is a back-up generator in case of power loss.
NOISE LEVELS: Please keep your evening noise levels to within reason. There are only a few other cottages on the lake (most are far off and hidden out of eyesight). But noise carries over water. Help us to promote a quiet and tranquil setting for everyone.
GARBAGE: All garbage and recycling must be packed up and taken home on your departure. There is a local dump that you can stop at on your way home.
CHILDREN: Every family is different. Some might feel the step-ladders, compact living space and rugged outdoor terrain less than ideal for young children. Others might be game for an adventure! We leave it up to you to decide what's best for your family.
PETS: You are more than welcome to bring along your dogs. We ask that you please keep them off the beds and couch cushions. Due to common allergies, cats must be kept at home.
NO OUTSIDE WATERCRAFT: Help us preserve the ecosystem of our lake. Penyck Lake is a closed ecosystem with no zebra mussels. Guests are not permitted to bring any watercraft that has been used on any other waterway in Canada or the USA. Please enjoy the use of our canoe instead.
