You can ride right from your cottage to Trail #8 (see map) in less than two minutes along the shoulder of County Rd 456, with the option of riding the powerline right of way most of the way to the trail.

Is there food and fuel nearby?

Brown’s Store is just minutes away for fuel, basic groceries, butcher counter, premade sandwiches and pasty pies. Right next door to Brown’s, The Throttle Bar and Grill is popular for some post-ride grub (don’t forget to bring your snowmobile club sticker for the wall in the restroom).

Do you have parking for snowmobile trailers?

The cottages all have room to park two vehicles. Some of them have room to park a truck and trailer right at the cottage. There is plenty of additional pull-through parking available along our driveway.

There is no pull-through for trailers, but you can do a 3-point turn with a trailer under 20 feet if your truck isn’t huge and park in front of the garage. Otherwise, unload snowmobiles at the end of the driveway and park your trailer at the resort.
