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 - free to reconnect with the vitality and serenity only found in the great outdoors!  Our cabins are ideal for people who enjoy camping out - on your own, or with friends and family. Each of our cabins are a short walk away from the fully serviced Main Lodge. Bring your favourite camp gear, a sense of adventure and prepare to experience a different kind of escape! The furthest cabin is less than 100 meters to the main lodge & washrooms. 

Our 100% off-grid facility consists of 4 self contained camping cabins that can sleep up to four people, and a fully serviced main lodge. Our 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 dinette. The cabins are not serviced with electricity or water. On the covered porch is a pro series Weber II grill with side burner, deck chairs, solar motion light, a fire pit and picnic table.

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 main lodge - where guests access our off-grid pub and fully serviced washroom and shower facilities.
Our goal is to make you feel at home throughout your stay.
