The Cabin

Escape the everyday life and enter into the rustic beauty of Ottawa’s Bytown days at The Cabin. Experience the rigours of Canadian life from 150 years ago by taking to our OCR Academy obstacle course or how about cracking your Can-knuckles and throwing an axe at the BATL Axe Throwing Truck. Before you know it you’ll be leaping from tree to tree!  As they float down the mighty Ottawa and Rideau Rivers! 

The Larch!

The Pine!

The Giant Redwood tree!

The Sequoia!

The Little Whopping Rule Tree!

But don’t get too carried away naming trees because there’s also a Bar to help you quench your thirst after all that rugged outdoorsman activity.
