Charming cabins just a stone’s throw away

Posted by Adam in Travel, 1/8, 1:40 PM

Though Brandon and Dauphin did get a nice little shout out recently from Expedia, Westman doesn’t always get credit for being a travel destination. Perhaps you didn’t know that we have an offering of unique cabins right here in our own backyard that have become a viral sensation of sort in recent years. 

Set amongst nature in a secluded location just South of Riding Mountain National Park the Crooked Mountain Cabins might be just what the doctor ordered for anyone looking for a local escape. 

Having been featured in the Huffington Post, The Cottager magazine and more recently Narcity I’m told that the cabins have attracted visitors to our corner of the province from just about every country you can imagine. A perfect example of their international appeal coming one night two summers ago when travelers from each of France, Germany and Australia all occupied different cabins at the same time and most likely partook in the kind of cultural exchange normally reserved for the heights of Lake Louise or that big tower in Toronto. 

While three of the four cabins on-site are only booked from mid May through September, one known as the “Fiddlehead” complete with that oh-so-photogenic sauna in the feature pic of this post is open year round. To give visitors a chance to enjoy our great outdoors during the snowy season, snowshoes are provided and guests are given access to a 2.1km cross country ski trail that runs right from the cabin door across the meadow and into the spruce forest.
