Enjoy the Nature of Nipissing

This is where you’ll find peace and quiet nestled in perfectly with nature. These great outdoors are filled with something for birdwatchers, wildlife seekers, nature photographers, and other explorers.

Enjoy the blend of breeze and wildlife throughout the forest or go for a boat ride down the river or to the awe inspiring Lake Nipissing.

What if it’s raining? We have a roofed dock to relax (or fish) under by the river, as well as a roofed outdoor BBQ pit, complete with seating and a friendly atmosphere.

Activities During Your Stay at Birchwood Cottages

There is plenty of fun for all ages including basketball, badminton, horseshoes, soccer, boccia and a large children’s playground. You can swim in the river or visit one of the many public beaches nearby. Our open gazebo with fireplace is a favourite meeting place where our guests get together to prepare their freshly caught fish and enjoy a romantic bonfire. When night falls, be amazed by a spectacular starry sky, where you can do plenty of star gazing.

Many of our guests take our boats to a nearby secluded beach where they can spend a whole day swimming and fishing.

If hiking or ATVing is your hobby, you will be pleased to know that just across the river from us, you have access to hundreds of acres of Crown land criss-crossed with abandoned logging trails.

Shopping in the friendly town of Powassan or nearby North Bay is only a short drive away. There you will find Supermarkets, Liquor & Beer Stores, Movie theatres, Doctor’s offices and Hospitals. North Bay Airport is only a 45 minute ride where we will gladly pick you up (by appointment).
