‘Crooked Mountain Cabins’
Nestled into the rolling wilderness on the edge of Riding Mountain National Park, these enchanting little cabins are fresh and luxurious. Perched on elevated lookouts, each cabin features its very own covered deck… offering a panoramic view of the meadow, forest and valley beyond. Nature enthusiasts enjoy the exclusive and serene atmosphere synonymous with Crooked Mountain and concur that ‘less is definitely more’ when it comes to cabin count. Availability has been intentionally limited to just four unique cabins in an effort to maintain a high quality experience in relation to the natural surroundings.
Many bird species (including the Great Grey Owl) have made the forest their home and share it with an abundance of other furry creatures, both large and small. Groomed hiking/biking trails meander throughout the entire area, so whether you prefer to spend your time soaking up the tranquility or exploring the mossy forest paths, you are sure to rejuvenate and feel at peace in this laissez-faire atmosphere.
English Garden in Wasagaming
Many visitors choose to split their time between Crooked Mountain and Riding Mountain National Park where the possibilities are limitless. Just 20 minutes away, this unique Park dates back to the 1930's. Punctuated by the charming town site of Wasagaming, it features log and stone heritage buildings; a large, deep, clear lake for swimming and boating, and beautiful grounds and gardens. The town site is also dotted with shops and restaurants as well as the largest log theatre in the country. At the heart of the Park sits the Visitor Centre, the hub of information for visitor needs. Friendly interpreters will help you discover the 3,000 km² paradise of natural wilderness and beauty that is Riding Mountain National Park. (see our “Things To Do At RMNP” page for more detailed information)
Valley view from deck
At the end of a full and busy day spent up at the Park, many guests comment that they can‘t wait to retreat home to their quiet little cabin in the hills; sip a glass of wine, prepare a delicious dinner, and sit back on their deck to watch the sun go down! Quite simply, they experience the best of both worlds.
The cabins are easily accessible. Just 2.5 hours from Winnipeg and 1 hour from Brandon… they provide the perfect eco-friendly vacation for any visitor. Life becomes simple and easy. Interior walls, hand washed in Mediterranean white adobe are decorated with tasteful antique accents. Climbing vines of virginia creeper and purple blue clematis engulf the exterior walls while strategic plantings provide natural privacy between dwellings. Each little cabin is its own ‘home away from home’ totally self contained and fully equipped with all amenities (fridge, stove, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, etc.) For your convenience, the following items are also supplied: bed linens, blankets, towels (except beach), toilet paper, kleenex, paper towels, dish soap, bar soap, saran, tinfoil, coffee filters, salt, pepper, and sugar.
