We are a little forest resort on the shores of Falcon and High Lake in the Whiteshell Provincial Park.
Hand-crafted lakefront cabins. Private hot tubs, remote hike-in eco cabins, docks, beaches, canoes, hiking, biking and ski trails, wood fireplaces, and the Falcon Ridge alpine ski slopes just a few steps away.
This is no chain hotel resort. Falcon Trails was created by and continues to be owned and operated by the Christie/Hamilton family, and this difference is immediately apparent in the feel of the place, the characters you encounter during your stay and the authenticity of the product.
To book, we will require the following information:
Contact info (mailing address, phone number, e-mail address)
The number of people who will be in the cabin
A valid VISA or MasterCard number for the required 50% deposit
Where in the world is Falcon Trails Resort?
You'll find us at the quiet south east end of Falcon Lake in Manitoba's Whiteshell Provincial Park, just off the #1 highway, a 90 minute drive east from Winnipeg, about 15 minutes west of the Manitoba/Ontario border.
Once you turn off the #1 Highway into Falcon Lake, take the South Shore Road along the south side of the lake (past the golf course and the lumber yard). We are located right at the end of the road, about a 15 minute drive from the highway.
*Please note that our rural address does not always work with in-car navigation systems. Be sure that the directions are leading you to the correct Falcon Lake location before setting out on your journey.
Are dogs allowed?
We have 5 dog-friendly cabins: Birch, Tamarack, Eagle, Juniper and Whiskey Jack, all other cabins are pet free. Other types of pets (cats etc.) are not permitted in any of the cabins.
An additional charge of $20/dog/night is applied
Dogs must be kept off the furniture
Dogs must be cleaned up after inside and outside the cabin
Dogs must be kept on a leash and kept under control (keep barking to a minimum)
Dogs must not be left alone in the cabin, screen porch, or deck
Dogs are not permitted inside any of the pet-free cabins
There is a cleaning charge of $100 if dogs or other pets are brought into any of the pet-free cabins
We love the forests here and have implemented the following changes around the resort to work towards respecting and minimizing impact on the land.
All-natural cleaning products: we use non-toxic, biodegradable cleaning products to maintain all our Falcon Trails and High Lake cabins.
Well-insulated cabin design to save heating energy
Passive solar lighting utilizing large windows on the southern wall
Cold-water washing with phosphate-free detergent for all laundry.
Composting and recycling program to minimize household waste
Naturally focused landscaping embracing the local habitat
Native plant garden
At the High Lake Eco Cabins, winner of the Tourism Manitoba Eco Tourism award in 2003, we have implemented a number of steps to sustain the pristine lake and environment:
Built using largely reclaimed or local materials with alternative building methods
‘Remote access’ to avoid habitat destruction and to promote sustainable transport alternatives (walking, running, biking, cross country skiing)
State-of-the art composting toilets
Falcon Trails pursues these efforts to respect and sustain our environment for ourselves and future generations to live, work and play. We’d love to hear from you if you have any comments or suggestions on how we can further reduce our ecological footprint.
