About Us and Our Story
Thank you for visiting our website. We hope you will find all the information you need to book a stay with us at North Channel Cottages.
Our story is still very much just getting started. Having purchased the property in February 2017, we have two seasons of operation behind us. Originally from the Niagara Region, we were looking for a different path in our lives and knew that Northern Ontario would be a great place to start this new chapter in our lives. While scouting the property and researching into the different options for summer vacations or a weekend away, we realized we wanted to create something that truly focuses on families. The French River is the perfect spot to do that.
Where Families Recharge
This is a sentiment we truly believe in. As everyone’s lives get busier and families are always on the go, we understand the need to relax. We encourage you to unplug from everything when you arrive at North Channel Cottages, spend the time making new memories with friends and family. Take a kayak trip down river into Daoust Bay to look for beavers or go for an early morning paddleboard ride when the sun is just peaking above the trees.
As a family, we understand how much work it is just to pack everything you might need for a vacation. That is why we provide almost everything you’ll need for your stay (including linens and pillows). If you click here, you’ll be taken to our What to Bring page. We even have a printable pdf file for a packing list. If you have any questions at all, please e-mail us at
Thank you for considering North Channel Cottages for your vacation. This is our home all year, and when you stay with us, we want you to feel at home as well.
Andrew, Megan, Benjamin, August and Draper.
