For a non-Canadian it was an awesome experience. Beautiful cabins in the woods (need to walk a bit to reach them right!), amazing views, nicely arranged, and tonnes of attractions: hiking, kayaking, swimming… Very nice staff too.
Wild Fruit and Mushroom gathering
The French River is known for its blueberries. From late June to early August – it depends on the season – blueberries grow in profusion. Ask at the front desk for a pot to put them in. Delicious and rich in antioxidants.
A wild cranberry bog awaits you. Real honest to goodness cranberries, indigenous to the region, grow here. We take our Montreal canoe with 20 guests and go picking at Canadian Thanksgiving. The chef will make sauces from your bounty.
Now that must be a verb, as so many people love mushrooms. The French River, under the right conditions of warm and dry, followed by rain, produces many varieties of mushrooms. Just make sure you know your Mushrooms or you could be courting trouble.

From time to time we will interest you with developments at the lodge - projects, competitions, the river & the environment.
