Iron Mountain Wilderness Cabins
Welcome to Nova Scotia's off-grid mountain wilderness resort! Our eco-friendly accommodations offer you an opportunity to get away to a cabin in the woods. You will be revitalized by the fresh mountain air, sights and sounds of the forest! Our cabins are ideal for people who enjoy camping out - on their own, or with friends and family. Each cabin is a short walk from the fully serviced Main Lodge. Bring your favourite camp gear, a sense of adventure and discover what its like living off-grid. The furthest cabin is less than 100 meters to the main lodge & serviced washrooms.
Our 100% off-grid facility offers guests a self contained camping cabin that can sleep up to four people. The camping cabins are heated, insulated and furnished with a top quality pillow top queen bed, set of single bunks, solar lights, food safe stainless steel prep table, and dining table and chairs. The cabins are not serviced with electricity or water. On the covered porch is a pro series Weber II grill with side burner and deck chairs. There are solar motion lights, fire pit and picnic table at each site.
We recommend you bring:
- Lantern, headlamp or flashlight
- Cooler for food and drink (do not leave any food outside!!)
- Camp chairs for fireside lounging
- Sturdy shoes, layers of clothing, weather appropriate gear!
Four Season Off Grid Cabins
The Iron Mountain Wilderness Cabins are our own custom designed steel cabins with an integrated porch. We had them prefabricated for us here in Nova Scotia from 60% recycled steel and used a plant based spray foam to insulate them. We are proud of our unique 100% off -grid steel cabins. They have been built to serve our guests for a long time to come in all four seasons and to withstand our backcountry mountain environment while being comfortable, practical and cozy to spend time and rest in. Guests use washroom and shower facilities available close by in the lodge.
Our cabins sleep 4 - with a max of 3 adults (top bunk for children). For parties that exceed this, please book two or more cabins, or contact us to see how we can accommodate you.
