This is our third time at Kenauk, it gets better each time we go, from the hugs at check-in to the sad goodbyes. This time we stayed at Three Points, probably of the ones we have stayed in, the actual cabin was the nicest and suited us the best. Because it is on a hill, they have put in a... More

We had a wonderful two night stay at Three Point Cabin. Having a lake entirely to ourselves in a beautiful, secluded setting was so relaxing. I am not outdoorsy at all, and I was very happy to find the cabin was well appointed with gas lights, running water and an excellent shower. Lots of hot water and great water pressure!... More

We have just spent two days unwinding, away from it all surrounded by the best of what nature has to offer.... How exquisite and lucky were we to have a lake all to ourselves, 24 km away from any form of "human" life! Deers, turtles, loonies, herons and every other type of bird crossed our path. Fishing was our excuse... More

We just spent two nights at Chalet des Pins with our children and grandchildren as a post-Christmas treat and for my husband's 70th birthday celebration. The chalet was clean, beds were hotel quality, it was perfect for 4 couples and 4 little children, and was dog- and cat-friendly. The setting is quiet and beautiful, right on the river, which was...

I think its best to start by saying it's a 45 min drive to the chalet from the front desk, no joke. We stayed at the commandant nord, and if you enjoy piece and quiet and fishing and camp fires you will enjoy this. It is very clean and well equipped, comfy and warm and the staff are very nice....

I am always happy to hear from guests that appreciate what we are trying to conserve at Kenauk Nature: a comfortable place to be alone with Nature and enjoy some peace and quiet with clear water, fresh air and lots of stars at night. We look forward to welcoming you again soon, (and I will check the pots in Commandant... More

We were able to spend 5 wonderful days at Taunton, first day being greeted at the kitchen window by a deer. It is just wonderful paddling the lake and seeing the beaver lodges and dams and then getting splashed by a beaver. The fishing is terrific, both for casting and for fly fishing. The views are not as special as... More

We spent 3 nights at Kenauk Nature and stayed at the Vert Chalet...it was quite an experience because we are not used to this kind of style of living but it was so peaceful and ralaxing getting away from the hustle of the city life. The cabins are quite rustic and quite an adjustment to not having proper electricity and... More

We spent 5 nights here at Chalet Hidden which was spotlessly clean & very well equipped. We had an amazing time & spotted a bear running alongside our car as we drove to cabin initially. Also did the bear watching trip which was incredible & saw young bear cubs that were adorable! Also saw deer, beavers, chipmunks, racoons, snakes (water... More

We spent 3 nights at Kenauk Nature and stayed at chalet Pumpkinseed. It was almost perfect, beautiful setting, isolated, own lake, peaceful, Unfortunately the insects were terrible, the Mosquitos were viscous, the flies were persistent, despite of the insect repellent. My suggestion is come in spring or autumn instead, autumn is cooler, no bugs,and beautiful with the autumn leaves. We... More

It is always rewarding to hear from families that appreciate the beauty and tranquility of our corner of the Canadian wilderness, with all its birds and wildlife. Insects are of course, a part of this and you are right, with the rains there have been a lot of mosquitoes this spring. If you return in the fall the chances of... More

we have been going to this great location for years. You have the choice of the hotel Montebello or the cabins at Kenauk. The cabins are quite rustic so if you like luxuy the hotel is the better choice but you cannot beat the cabins if you really want to get away from it all. Ask for a cabin on... More
