We can accommodate any size group or family!

Rustic, Fully Equipped Cottages

Our Ontario resort accommodations are designed to keep our pricing fair and simple. We don’t nickel and dime you and you won’t find the included amenities like unlimited gas, bait and firewood in many other Lodge packages. There are no surprises at the end of your visit.

Most of our original, hand-hewed log cabins date back nearly a century and we take great pride in maintaining and preserving their historic beauty while providing modern day conveniences. In recent years we have updated roofs, plumbing, electrical and exteriors as well as appointments such as appliances, bedding and more. It’s a labour of love that our guests truly appreciate and sets us apart as one of the premier lodges in Canada and has helped earn us Trip Advisor’s Certificate of Excellence Award and 5-Star Rating. Rustic meets comfort you might say, and it’s all about your enjoyment and peace of mind.

We don’t rent by the cabin. Rather, we place you and your guests in the most appropriate, available cabin that comfortably suits the size of your party. So, you are never crammed into a cabin that may be too small. This also gives us the flexibility to accommodate people with accessibility needs and to upgrade people to larger cabins as availability presents. By all means, you may request a specific cabin at your time of booking and we always do our best to accommodate as best we can. However, as we host many people each season with different needs, we cannot promise specific cabins until time of arrival.

Marten River Lodge

Spotlessly Clean

We know what it’s like to go to a resort and find your cabin – well, less than satisfactory. We understand that while a wilderness vacation should bring you closer to nature, it doesn’t mean you can’t be comfortable and your accommodations can’t be clean.

At MRL we go to great lengths to ensure your stay is enjoyable, comfortable and worry-free. Before you, your cabin and everything in it is meticulously cleaned from top to bottom and in every nook and cranny. Fresh sheets and bedding, towels and toiletries are provided; kitchen appliances and amenities, windows, floors, fixtures, furniture and surfaces are all cleaned to perfection. And if we did miss something, we’ll make it right immediately.

All our boats are cleaned, refuelled and inspected with each turn over so when you arrive it’s ready to go. We even include a towel with each boat for your convenience! Our lodge, dining room, common washrooms, grounds and fish cleaning station are also attended to regularly. We also offer a laundry service including wash, dry and fold for a nominal fee.

We have invested in a significant infrastructure to provide safe, potable well water you can drink from your tap (tested regularly), an extensive over-built septic system, upgraded propane heating units and electrical system to provide optimum 24-hour service. Each year, we have also invested in replacing mattresses, appliances, equipment and other amenities for the convenience and practical benefit of our guests. We are also in the process of replacing roofs with steel on a number of our buildings. After all, we want to preserve the 98-year heritage that is Marten River Lodge.

We want you to feel at home from the moment you arrive to the moment you say farewell. If there is anything we can do to make your stay more enjoyable, just ask our River Crew. You’ll find all of us at MRL ready to help.
