Welcome

Come Escape with 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, we offer year-round accommodations for all types of outdoor adventurists. Providing our guests with a beautiful waterfront view, Great Escape Cabins is sure to bring you the vacation of your dreams!

 

Fishing & Ice Fishing
The Murdock River offers some of the best fishing around. Entering the waterway is a breeze using the small boat launch on our property. Alternatively, there is a public boat launch across the road, entering into the top of the French River.

The Murdock River freezes up every winter, providing the perfect spot for ice fishing!

Snowmobiles
Northern Ontario has amazing snowmobile trails. We are located just off of the C trail at highway 607.

  1. Is this several accommodations together or are they secluded?
    How many does the property sleep?
    Is the water suitable for kayaking and swimming?
    How far is the water from the accommodation?
    Are pets allowed and what is the cost early August.

    Your time is appreciated.

    • Hi Annette!
      Thanks for reaching out to us! Our cabins are all separate, but beside each other. The only cabins that are attached are Cabins 1 and 2, which share a common entrance into their own secured separate doors to their individual cabins. The cabins in total would sleep a minimum of 14 people if you were to rent all the cabins, but that number would increase if you were to have additional guests sleeping on the futons that are in some of the cabin’s living rooms.
      The water is steps away from the cabins, as we have a staircase that takes you down to the dock. The water is suitable for kayaking and swimming within the area of the resort. I cannot confirm that other areas of the Murdock river aren’t a bit choppy.
      Pets are definitely welcome, but we do charge an additional fee per pet and require them to be on a leash at all times for the safety of the pet, as well as our other guests.
      Unfortunately our cabins are all booked up for the summer months already but we do have campsites available. The campground also has a comfort station with a separate men’s and woman’s. Both have toilets, sinks and showers. If this is something you are interested in we would be happy to work with you on a reservation.

      We look forward to having you as a guest at our beautiful resort!
