Badge of Awesome Communities invites you to share your favourite things to see and do in cool destinations around the world. We caught up with the folks from Forest House Wilderness Lodge — one of our featured attractions from Saskatchewan — to learn about what they have to offer.
What makes Forest House Wilderness Lodge awesome?
Forest House: Forest House is wilderness lodge based in Canada’s northern Boreal forest. Located on it’s own small, pristine, unnamed lake in Saskatchewan, Forest House has been carefully constructed to have minimal impact on the delicate Boreal forest Eco-system. The main lodge, two cabins, and spectacular organic garden took thirty years to come to fruition. Original builders, Deb Peters and Rick Kolstad lovingly crafted their vision using lumber harvested from the local forest, banks of solar collectors to generate power, and a self-composting septic system. Every single detail of Forest House’s construction, from location, to materials, to the self-sustaining garden was meticulously planned to create a harmony between technology and the natural beauty of the Boreal forest.
Saskatchewan’s northern Boreal forest is a wondrous place. It offers unparalleled beauty, thousands of cool, clear lakes, and bountiful plant and wildlife. The tapestry of the forest is in a state of perpetual evolution, providing unique vistas with each season. Forest House sits in the middle of the McLennan Lake area of Saskatchewan, which has been described as an “Eden” in the forest. It is the perfect place to experience nature at its finest, to walk in forests that are virtually untouched, to re-connect with yourself and the world around you.
At Forest House, time is yours. Relax on the deck with a good book; explore surrounding lakes; hike the Boreal forest; observe wildlife; enjoy a sauna by the lake. Experience the breath-taking beauty of the northern Boreal forest in luxurious, Eco-friendly accommodations offering serenity, solitude, and peace-of-mind.
