Your Hosts

Cabin Falls Ecolodge is owned and managed by well-known Canadian adventurers, Hap and Andrea Wilson.

With decades of wilderness tripping experience, these two expert guides have shared a love and passion for Temagami since their first meeting many, many years ago.

Having graced the covers and pages of many popular outdoor magazines, and other publications (not including the numerous wilderness guide-books and novels penned and illustrated by Hap), these two modern-day voyageurs continue to impress and inspire us all.

What To Bring


Personal gear should be compacted in to one large internal-frame pack using “dry-bags” for waterproofing. Camera’s, computers, or any electronic equipment should be packed in a sturdy waterproof bag or “pelican” case. Guests should bring a light day-pack for excursions. If you have any questions concerning what to bring, please email or call us. Remember to bring warmer clothes for spring and fall retreats!



We highly recommend loose-fitting, comfortable clothing, light-coloured fabric for spring and summer. It’s your choice whether to bring synthetic or cotton/wool clothing; we do have a hand-powered washing-machine at the lodge. Alcohol is permitted (bring your own) but carefully monitored at the lodge. We do serve a complimentary glass of wine with dinner but guests are welcome to bring in their own spirit beverage. There is no smoking within any public area of the lodge. All beds have mattresses and pillows – extra blankets are available. Please let us know if you prefer a 2-person or single bed.
