Why Log Cabins Are The New Beach Resort
By Sabrina Maddeaux
“Trust us: These six wintery lodges and log-cabin resorts will have you rethinking hot vacays for good.
This year, trade in ocean views for cozy fireplaces and sandy beaches for memorable adventures in snowshoeing, skiing and snowmobiling at a historic log cabin resort. Best of all, you can often skip splurging on airfare and find excellent deals when housing the entire fam in a cabin with multiple rooms.
Cedar Grove Lodge, Ontario
Escape to the beautiful Cedar Grove Lodge resort on Peninsula Lake in Muskoka, Ont. The family-owned destination has log cottages with stone fireplaces that are ideal for both romantic weekends and escapes from the city with the entire family. Feeding the whole crew is a lot easier when three meals a day (with such mouthwatering menu options as organic mac and cheese for the kids and roast prime rib for adults) are included with the price of accommodation, which starts at $122 per person per night. The resort offers a plethora of winter equipment, such as cross-country skis, snowshoes, skates, toboggans, hockey sticks and more (free of charge!), so you can fully explore the 10 kilometres of ski trails and lake complete with an ice-fishing hut. Warm up with indoor amenities that include arcade games, shuffleboard and pool tables……”
