Relax at this wilderness ecolodge in northern Saskatchewan


This luxury wilderness eco-lodge is Canada's premiere boreal forest resort. Located on a small, pristine, unnamed lake in northern Saskatchewan, it has been carefully constructed to have minimal impact on the delicate boreal forest ecosystem. 

The main lodge, two cabins, and spectacular organic garden took thirty years to come to fruition. The builders lovingly crafted their vision using lumber harvested from the local forest, banks of solar collectors to generate power, and a self-composting septic system. Every single detail of construction, from location, to materials, to the self-sustaining garden was meticulously planned to create a harmony between technology and the natural beauty of the boreal forest. It is truly is a showcase of esthetics and technology existing "as one" with the delicate and diverse northern boreal forest ecosystem.

Saskatchewan's northern Boreal forest is a wondrous place. It offers unparalleled beauty, thousands of cool, clear lakes, and bountiful plant and wildlife. The tapestry of the forest is in a state of perpetual evolution, providing unique vistas with each season. It sits in the middle of the McLennan Lake area of Saskatchewan, which has been described as an "Eden" in the forest. It is the perfect place to experience nature at its finest, to walk in forests that are virtually untouched, to reconnect with yourself and the world around you.  

At this resort, time is yours. Relax on the deck with a good book; explore surrounding lakes; hike the boreal forest; observe wildlife; enjoy a sauna by the lake. Experience the breathtaking beauty of the northern Boreal forest in luxurious, Eco-friendly accommodations offering serenity, solitude, and peace-of-mind.  There are no roads into the lodge. Access to the lodge is by floatplane or minimize your impact on the environment and canoe in. Guides will paddle along side you into the lodge or you can just ride along in the canoe and let the guide do all the work. The canoe trip takes about 3-4 hours from the put-in location.

ACCOMMODATIONS

The main lodge sits majestically on precambrian rock, providing a spectacular view of the lake below. It has been built from logs carefully harvested from the surrounding woods. It is a true eco-lodge, powered primarily by solar power.  The top floor holds two comfortable bedrooms and a bathroom, complete with a composting toilet. A well-appointed kitchen, a cozy living room/library, and a spacious dining room surrounded by windows overlooking the garden and the lake are located on the main floor.

A large deck on the front of the lodge has also been built to take advantage of the sunrise and a view of the lake.  The property also features two cabins, situated on a slope above the gardens and the main lodge.

Like the lodge, the accommodations were constructed with locally-harvested materials, and maintain the philosophy of minimal impact on the Boreal forest. "Willow" is our largest cabin. Its warm, comfortable bedrooms easily sleep up to seven adults. Complete with its own indoor washroom, "Willow" makes the perfect home away from home. "Alder", although smaller than "Willow", offers comfort and space for four guests. It also features an indoor washroom.  The property also has its own handcrafted Sauna, located on the shore of the lake, just below the main lodge. It is complete with a inside change room and shower. Outside, a deck leads you to the cooling waters of the lake.
