“Gorgeous, relaxing honeymoon.”
Lodge at Pine Cove’s only log cabin. Named after an Ojibwa chief of the mid 1800s. Norman Dokis Jr. his great-great-grandson, built the cottage for us. Dokis is sited on a smooth granite slope, with really wonderful views of the water. Spacious inside with more than enough room for four guests. Dokis has a large living room, dining area and kitchen. French doors open onto a large screened porch. It also has a back porch were reading a book in the early morning sun is a real treat. The cottage has a feel to it that takes one far back in the tradition of early Canadian log cabins but with all the modern amenities – luxury rustic chic at its best.
Sun rises to the south of this cottage and sets to the north
A brief history
Chief Michel L’Aigle Dokis or Migisi as he was also known, was an Ojibwa. Famous for being a signatory to the Robinson-Huron treaty of 1850, for creating a pictographic account book to document his commercial activities (extremely rare in North America) and for protecting the primordial forest from timber-men on his reservation. He operated several trading posts in the French River area. A literate and fluent speaker of Ojibwa & French, Dokis was admired by many in both native and European cultures. His honesty, straight forwardness and experience amongst First Nations peoples as well as with other Canadians, was a major asset to the Ojibwa peoples of the French River area.
From time to time we will interest you with developments at the lodge - projects, competitions, the river & the environment.
