Kenauk Nature is a vast 265 km2 (65,000 acre) private landscape established in the 19th century to conserve and protect wildlife habitat. Our magnificent hardwood forest encompasses 65 lakes, 25 of them designated for fishing a wide variety of fish, including rainbow, speckled and lake trout, large-mouth and small-mouth bass and northern pike. For guests to fully experience the wilderness, we offer secluded first-class chalets, with one to six bedrooms. Each private cabin comes equipped with propane lights, fully equipped kitchen, outside barbecue, furnace and hot water tank provided by propane gas, complete bathroom for your comfort and spacious screened porch or a large balcony. All cabins are off the electrical grid so solar panels power the high efficiency refrigerator and water pump. Kenauk Nature is proud to be a partner with the Nature Conservancy of Canada whose reputation for protecting wild places is outstanding.

Property's Favourite Review
This was our 5th stay at Kenauk, but the first time in Wilson chalet. It was the largest cabin we’ve ever had, and if anything we wondered if it might seem a little large for the four of us and not in the spirit of Kenauk with solar lighting and electricity. This was not the case at all. The cabin was spacious but perfect for our needs, with the added benefit of additional bathrooms (including one amazingly with a proper bath). Gone are the gas lights, in favour of solar powered LEDs, which saves a lot of scorched fingers! The ability to charge your phone etc, even if you cannot use it was useful. The cabin had two bedrooms downstairs, one with a king bed and one with a double/twin bunk. Upstairs was a loft with three singles. A huge living area downstairs and a seating area upstairs, in addition to the screened porch at the side gave us ample living space. The games area downstairs was nice for a late night game of pool, or if it had been rainy (which luckily it wasn’t). Outside at the front was a small firepit area that we didn’t use much as we couldn’t get the firepit lit, but the main deck at the back was so amazing we used this all the time for eating and lounging. It was really nice to have somewhere to sit at night but that wasn’t completely open to the strange rustlings in the undergrowth! The only issue was the BBQ which we couldn’t get to work fully. Down a flight of steps is the dock area with two single person kayaks, a canoe and three rowing boats. The canoe was by far our favourite and we wished there had been two as we had to take turns in going out two people at a time. My only suggestion for improvement would be the provision of a water dispenser as you don’t really want to drink the water as it has a weird smell, and it seems counter intuitive in a place like this to bring along a lot of water in single use plastic bottles. It broke my heart to have to decline the invitation to rebook for next year, but we are already planning a trip in 2024 for my 50th birthday! Every time we stay here, we wish we had stayed longer. Kenauk has always been a really special place for us, and somewhere we dream of when we are at home in the UK. This stay only made that feeling stronger.

Thank you so much for this complete review, We're delighted to know that you picked Kenauk Nature for your 50th birthday. Be sure to mention it to our team when booking! Your comment for the water is noted, our chalets have water softener systems to eliminate the taste. Sometimes they need to be fine tuned in order to work more efficiently. Same for the grill, we notified our maintenance team to make sure that the next guests can fully enjoy it! Thank you again!

We were a large group of friends celebrating a 30th birthday over a weekend. We were staying at the Chalet Papineau, which easily accommodated everyone comfortably. The surrounding area was beautiful, and offered an amazing playground for running and dog walking. The kitchen facilities were great, allowing us to easily cook for a large group. The beautiful fireplace kept us warm and cozy. I definitely recommend this place for any large group gathering.

We rented out the Papineau cottage for a business Christmas party. We had food delivered directly to the location (Toqué). The experience was amazing! Everyone appreciated the party and the location. We will definitely repeat the experience.

Dear Climber, Thank you for your review. Nothing like spending quality time in a chalet with friends or family. You're not the first one to point out that our systems are impressive! We don't always realize that the chalets are powered by solar systems. Until next time!

Don't bother unless you want to sit inside all day. Ridiculous. Scenery lovely from the window but we couldn't go on the water or walk anywhere and were not told this at time of booking but just a few days before arrival.

Dear guest, During the fall, certain trails and areas are restricted. Although, each chalet has it's own 2000 acres of privacy and forest around them, exclusive to the guests renting those specific chalets. The body of water in front of your chalet will always be available for you to use: either for a canoe / kayak excursion or a fall fishing session! Make sure to ask about opened trails on your next visit, our team will be happy to assist you and help you find the best options for you to fully enjoy the property. The Kenauk Nature team

I was in Ottawa and heard great things about this sporting clays course so I drive here to try it. It was an absolutely beautiful course with realistic targets. The host was awesome and very knowledgeable. I will definitely be going back and will come back to try the fishing and chalets. The whole resort is absolutely beautiful!!
