Now that we're officially in the new year and we still have at least 3 more months of winter to look forward to, now is the perfect time to plan a getaway. Most of us have been dreaming of escaping to a tropical beach with white sand and turquoise water but that involves a lengthy travel time and you'd probably have to shell out a lot of cash to get there.
Instead, why not stay close to home and explore more of the great country we live in right now! The best way to do this is to find a secluded hideaway in the woods and get in touch with nature again inside a real-life winter wonderland! That's what the Crooked Mountain Cabins in Manitoba will offer you.
The Crooked Mountain Cabins are located on the edge of the stunning Riding Mountain National Park in Manitoba. It's just a short 2.5-hour drive from Winnipeg and 1-hour from Brandon. These enchanting cabins are perched on elevated lookouts so you'll get a panoramic view of the forest and valley sitting right outside your door.
They intentionally limited the number of cabins available to just 4 because they wanted to keep the area secluded and untouched for an even more magical escape. One of the main attractions at this getaway is the adorable sauna located down a pathway hidden inside the nearby forest that only one cabin can access. It's the most photographed building at this hideout because it's seriously adorable and follows the 'crooked' look that the name suggests!
Each cabin is fully equipped with amenities such as all the kitchen appliances you could need, comfy beds with full linens and blankets, towels, a BBQ on the outdoor deck, and even high-speed internet connection! The Fiddlehead cabin, which is priced for two people, has access to the private sauna in the woods and is probably the best cabin available even though the others are super cute too.
Most of the cabins go for either $1,225 per week or $175 per night except for the larger cabin that fits 6-8 people that goes for $2,450 per week or $30 per person per night. They don't provide any food or meals during your stay but with the fully equipped kitchen and spices, you can easily cook all your meals during your stay!
While you're there you can hike through the various trails nearby, experience wildlife sightings, watch the sunrise and even the northern lights, and even bring cross country skis and ski through the forest!
