What is an oTENTik accommodation?

A cross between a tent and a rustic cedar cabin, an oTENTik is a unique destination for visitors to enjoy camping at ease with the convenience of a bed and a campsite already set up and ready to go. This type of accommodation is the perfect way for families, friends and people of all ages to discover the joys of camping without all the muss and fuss.

An oTENTik offers a unique blend of warm comfort, coziness, and a taste of outdoor adventure. The accommodations provide an ideal base camp for people looking to explore the historical canal sites of the Trent-Severn Waterway, nearby nature trails, and easily accessible locations for canoes and kayaks.
