A  Message to Our Wonderful Guests:
We are happy to say we can now welcome guests back at Great Escape Cabins! Life has been anything but normal this past Spring and we hope that everyone’s Family has stayed healthy and safe. We are committed to a healthy and safe environment here at Great Escape Cabins so we have made a few modifications to your stay. We ask that all guests bring with them their own linens, including bedding, bath towels, bath mats and kitchen towels in order to keep all guests and staff safe while we navigate these new waters of COVID-19 and the health regulation set out by the Government of Ontario. We look forward to seeing you! If you have any questions please contact us. 

Surrounded by Crown Land, Great Escape Cabins is a northern cabin and campground resort, situated within the beautiful French River Municipality.  Located along the Murdock River (as it enters the French River). We offer year-round accommodations for all types of outdoor adventurists.

Providing our guests with an undisturbed waterfront view, Great Escape Cabins is sure to bring you the vacation of your dreams! Surrounded by majestic pines, wildlife and awe-inspiring sunsets, we are your premiere vacation resort.

We are a short 3.5 hour drive Northwest of Toronto, away from all the hustle and bustle of life. Wake up to the sound of loons and get comfy in an Adirondack chair. Enjoy the view alongside that morning coffee. There’s no better way to start the day while on vacation in the North!

There are a multitude of opportunities both on and off resort. From fishing and canoeing, to snowmobiling and ice fishing. We have something memorable for each season!

At the end of a busy day, cozy up by the community campfire and enjoy a s’more. Reminisce about the day’s events while listening to the crickets, and gazing at the stars. Be sure to learn more on our Adventure pages.

We are conveniently located just outside the village of Alban, Ontario and are only a short drive to many restaurants, golf courses, and tourist attractions, including the French River Vistor’s Centre. Also, the grocery store, gas station, LCBO and Beer Store are all within a 5 – 15 min drive.

Our General Store onsite offers those forgotten items. For instance, snacks, fishing supplies, watercraft rentals and live bait. We also offer DVD’s, books and board games to borrow. For more information on what we carry, please visit our General Store page.

“Home away from home” describes Great Escape Cabins perfectly. Not only are these rustic cabins equipped fully for anything you need on a getaway, but Caitland and Mike genuinely treat you like extended family.
The cabins are clean, homey, and super comfortable. They’re situated central to so many places: Killarney, French River and Grundy Lake Provincial Parks, for starters. At the site, there’s fishing and rentals to take out on the water.
Caitland and Mike will go out of their way to get to know you, help you plan your travels, and offer advice on whatever you’re in the area for. Evenings can be spent with the family around the fire pit, sharing s’mores and stories.

  1. We recently stayed at this very cozy cabin! The staff are amazingly friendly and attended to our every need! The cabin is very warm and inviting that offers privacy between the two bedroom cabin we stayed in. We didn’t hear our neighbour in the cabin beside us. We plan to return this summer given the breathtaking views of the river! Highly recommend this for fishermen or families. The store offered the convience of snacks so we didn’t have to run to town!
