Housekeeping Cottages

Cedar Rail Ranch offers several modern housekeeping cottages for vacation rental. Cabins located at the Ranch are housekeeping and are equiped with all the utensils for preparing your own meals while vacationing. Each cottage sleeps six people, with two double beds and a pull out couch. All towels and linens are supplied for your stay.

Outpost Camps

Two outpost camps located on Tunnel Lake are also available for vacation rental. If its seclusion and mere peace and quiet, these are ideal. For those looking for something closer to nature, these camps are it! Simple living at its best! These two outpost camps have no inside bathrooms. The smaller camp consists of a bunkhouse with four bedrooms, a sitting room, a wood stove, propane lights and is set up for a generator (you may bring your own). A separate cookhouse with a fridge and stove, utensils and dishes and a propane heater is located near the sleeping camp. This camp can sleep eleven people (please bring your own towels and sleeping bags for these outpost camps). Both camps have beautiful sand beaches, well suited for families with young children, who are seeking peace and quiet and natural surroundings. Enjoying the luxury of simple living is what we offer while vacationing at our Outpost Camps.

The Ranch's close proximity to snowmobile trails, hiking trails and Crown land is ideal for snowmobilers, ATVers, hunters, hikers, naturalists and horseback riding enthusiasts.

Summer Activities

We began as a riding stable many years ago. With the popularity of horseback riding, it was only natural to expand to offering cabin rentals to people interested in this sport and experience. For people not interested in riding, your stay at our Ranch can still be a fun filled adventure while vacationing here. Sand beaches for relaxing, swimming and sunbathing. Large waterways for boating, sight seeing, hiking and fishing are also enjoyed by our guests. We offer guided boating and fishing tours or offer rentals for your convenience. Trail riding, horsedrawn wagon rides and horse riding lessons are continually offered at the Ranch throughout all seasons. For those who enjoy dirt biking and ATVing, we have numerous places for that to. Fish ponds located on the ranch are stocked with rainbow trout for your fishing pleasure. Pets are always welcome, even your own horse! Please call or email for details. Come experience a family vacation at Cedar Rail Ranch today! Fun and adventure included!

Winter Activities

Winter activities at Cedar Rail Ranch include snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, sleigh rides, ice fishing, and trail rides. Whether visiting for the day or for a week, winter outdoors enthusiasts will find that Cedar Rail Ranch Resort is ideally located, receiving abundant snow and having easy access to the northern Ontario snowmobile trail system. Cross-country Skiing Our 10km's of groomed cross country ski trails begin behind our cabins and travel back through the snow-blanketed pasture to the mixed forest. Here they wind through trees and open stretches with a few small rolling hills to test your ability. Don't worry about getting lost; every turn is marked! There are also quality cross-country ski club trails within a few minutes drive, with only a small donation to the club expected.

Sleigh Rides
Nothing beats a good old-fashioned sleigh ride when it comes to family fun and entertainment. It's a genuine winter wonderland at the ranch as we take you through our 55 acres of forest with Louie and Molly, our team of heavy horses. As you pass under the trees it is very tempting to shake a snow-laden branch off on your neighbor...
