The property was a Bed & Breakfast, the cabins have since been renovated and are now self contained units with all the amenities of home with only two exceptions, limited power and limited water as the cabins are located off the grid.
The Pine Lodge has two floors, the main floor has the kitchenette, Bathroom and a futon. The second floor (loft) is where the bedroom is located which is furnished with a queen bed and a dresser. (Access via a ladder)
The cabin is fitted with hot & cold running water, but if you are someone who loves long hot showers then maybe off grid cabin live is not for you. As the cabin is off the grid, water for the cabin is trucked in from the nearby lake. The cabin water tank holds 245 gallons (1100 litres) and will be refilled every second day (48 hrs). If additional fill ups are required a $25.00 charge will be incurred per fill up and unscheduled fill ups may not be readily available. Please use water wisely, every drop counts.
As with the water power is also limited, the cabin is equipped with 120 volt AC power (24/7) throughout which will accommodate most low wattage equipment i.e. phone chargers, laptops, camera battery charges etc. Our power mainly comes from solar arrays (96%) and is stored in batteries for those cloudy days and long dark winter nights.
Country Cabin is located 29 kilometers east of Yellowknife on the senic Ingraham Trail (Highway 4) located at 40 Prelude Lake Main, in the Prelude Lake Territorial Park.
Our cabins are non-smoking (welcome to smoke outside) and we do not allow pets on the premises. We try to provide a quiet peaceful surrounding and we expect our guest to do the same, this is not a party venue.
Please respect the neighbors and treat the place like your home.
Quiet Hours 10:30 pm. to 8:00 am.
When you go out for the day, please turn off lights, unplug chargers, etc.. and turn down heating. This keeps our running costs (and prices!) down.
