The Cabin at West Cott allows guests to enjoy the lake and experience wilderness, while also exploring their energy use and how they impact the planet we live on.
The cabin is not connected to any electrical supply company. It is a solar powered home, that can sufficiently provide electricity for the energy aware family. There are two diesel generators that provide backup, but ideally should rarely come on. How much they come on is determined by the guests energy consciousness.
The Cabin at West Cott is on a quiet lake with good fishing and full access to the Winnipeg River. Whether it's a leisurely trip by water to Minaki, or kayaking through wild rice filled bays, adventure awaits. Wildlife can be seen from the dining table or dock. Eagles are a regular sight, travelling to and from their nests, feeding and training their young. Fall hunting and winter snowmobile activities make for 12 months of fun.
There are 880 square feet of living space, including a 220 square foot sunroom. The cabin is a two minute treed walk to the water. Due to fluctuating levels of the Winnipeg River system, at times the ramp to the floating dock can be steep. This can be difficult for people with mobility issues.
The cabin contains two private bedrooms and sleeps 6 comfortably. Two cots are available if required. There is a cozy propane fireplace for chilly evenings or rainy days.
The cabin shares a dock with the main house.
