“”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.
I was originally disappointed when I couldn’t get a Killarney campsite for car camping, but now I’m glad I didn’t. Great Escape Cabins was a pleasant surprise, and I will be back for sure!”

Excellent value for anyone looking to stay in the French River, or looking for a point of departure prior to a trek through Killarney (the reason for our stay). Caitland is an exceptional host and is very responsive!”

“Stayed on the property in a trailer, beautiful camp area for trailers,along with several cabins for your northern experience. Mike and Caitland made the stay a memorable one. If you are looking to get away and enjoy a wilderness experience like no other please do not miss out on this little hidden gem.”

“Honestly, I wish I could give this place more than 5 stars. Mike and Caitland work so hard to make their rustic cabins warm and welcoming, their guests feel genuinely cared for, and their sprawling property comfortable, accessible and impeccably maintained. They are friendly and easy-going, traits that blend beautifully with their dedication to excellent customer service, which immediately made us feel more like long-lost-friends rather than “just” customers. Our trailer has been parked at their full-service campground for the summer, and it has been the BEST SUMMER EVER!! They have room for several tents or trailers (with reliable hydro, water, and septic hookups for each) on a big grassy spot carved out of the hillside and surrounded by nothing but trees, butterflies and stars! The “open concept” site is cozy and friendly, but we still felt like we had plenty of privacy as other campers came and went. As we continue to get to know the area, we are grateful to have found such a true gem! And we are happy to recommend this spot to anyone looking for a quiet, no-nonsense, fun and relaxing get-away!”

“Caitland and Mike were incredible hosts! They were very accommodating, going above and beyond exxpectaations to make our stay a great experience. The location is beautiful, a sleepy meandering river that connects to the French River in a nature’s paradise. It’s was so peaceful, yet we had all the amenities to have an exceptional and fun stay. We will definitely return! Thank you for your gracious hospitality.”

“Amazing place to stay!! The owners, Mike and Caitland, are awesome and made our stay that much better! They were very accommodating and made sure we were comfortable, happy and having a great time. The cabins were immaculate and had everything we needed. We will definitely be back! :)”
“Our stay at the Great Escapes Resort was one we will cherish. We were greeted by the friendly owners who showed us our cabin and made us feel right at home. The view from the location itself was amazing. Overlooking the water with clear skies and fresh air.
We stayed at the cabin with 2 bunk beds, and found the quality of sleep was amazing. Our little one was with us and it was nice to have room for him to run around and play in the cabin.
Also right on location was a play area filled with sand which our little guy loved playing in.
We will definitely be returning in the future.
Wonderful spot for kids and adults”

My favourite spot to date ! Caitland and Mike were outstanding hosts and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and felt at home (they went as far as to clean and cut the fish we caught so we could cook it that evening). They gave us tips on where to eat & best places to go for outdoor activities. We ended up ditching most of our plans and staying on the property as it really had everything we needed for a fun outdoor weekend. The cabin was extremely clean and was equipped with all your essentials + more. The property has a beautiful view of the river & canoes on site that you can rent. it was nice having our own BBQ at the cabin and their communal fire pit is a great spot to gather at night. We are already planning our second trip up and look forward to spending another weekend at their accomodations. Its a perfect spot for a family or group of friends, I would highly recommend staying here!

“Run by a friendly family who just bought this property. It was clean and spacious. Everything you would need for a longer stay and plenty of place to unpack. We were there in winter but I imagine summer would be incredible.”

“We were met by Mike & Caitland after a full day of riding on our snowmobiles. They had our cottage warmed & gave us directions on where to eat. We were able to purchase some snacks from their office store. They have done a lot of work to get the cottages winterized & it was great to hear their future plans. We wish you the best & will be back!”

“Thank you Great Escape Cabins for a enjoyable stay! The cabin we stayed in felt like home and was very clean! We spent a few days here and got to enjoy sledding and skating along with a fire work display for new years eve! We would highly recommend Great Escape Cabins for a family winter vacation!”

“Perfect destination for fishing/hunting, or just to get away from it all. Surrounded by crown land and Murdock River, no other cottages as far as you can see, just river, forest and stars.
Very clean, comfortable mattresses and pillows, all linens and towels provided, we did not need to pack anything other than clothes.
Owned by nice young family, very attentive and responsive. Open year around, which is hard to find. We would definitely go back.”

“An old school (in a good way!) cabin with nice updates to the appliances. A very comfortable stay in a wonderful part of the country. I look forward to seeing how Caitland and her husband make it their own over the next few seasons!”
Brian, October 2018, Airbnb
