A cute and charming lakeside Cabana on the grounds of the Avalon Retreat Centre on Gorman Lake. Cabana accommodations include single beds, a shared picnic area, BBQ, direct lake access with dock and use of canoes and kayaks for a small rental fee. Sandy beach within walking distance. A lovely rustic retreat in the heart of the Madawaska Valley. The perfect getaway to connect with the majestic outdoors in simple comfort - enjoy the serenity of camping in a cabin.
Robin's Cabana is one of two small cabins situated side by side sharing one outdoor kitchen, port-o-pottie and dock. This charming and rustic option is ideal for those who enjoy living close to nature - camping in a cabin. Robin's cabana has two single beds and you will need to bring your own bedding. In the shared outdoor kitchen, shared with nearby Blue Jay's Cabana, we supply bottled water for drinking, cooking and washing; dishes, cooking utensils, and a barbeque. There is direct access to the lake and canoe or kayak rental for $10 each daily.

Robin’s Cabana is nestled in a cozy corner of the Avalon Retreat Centre, on the edge of the beautiful and pristine Gorman Lake. Nearby is Blue Jay’s Cabana, also available for guest access. These charming cabanas enjoy direct access to a shared dock, shared outdoor kitchen and picnic area with BBQ, and canoes and kayaks (bring your own life jackets). There is a sandy public beach within walking distance from the Avalon Retreat Centre.
The location of this cabana is ideal for day trips to Algonquin Park, Shaw Woods, and for the more seasoned hiker, Barron Canyon. Smaller hikes such as the Wilno Heritage Trail, which begins and ends at the Wilno Heritage Park, are a 5 minute drive away. Hikes can range from 3 - 4 km to 15 km hikes.
Biking trails are located within an hour's drive and make a wonderful day trip.
If you like sight seeing, take a self-guided driving tour - Rural Ramble. This offers you the opportunity to do a heritage walk, check out the museums, enjoy the local flavour at the Farmer's Markets, see the waterfalls, and visit local studios all on the same day.
If you forgot something, Barry's Bay is a quick drive away with grocery and drug stores, and more for your convenience.
No smoking on the grounds.
Responsible drinking permitted.
We will happily answer your questions about local attractions. We can supply hiking, biking, driving, canoeing and kayaking trail maps. Let us support you by making you a reservation at the Wilno Tavern when you book with us.
