I stayed here a few years ago and I would not hesitate to stay there again. The grounds are absolutely beautiful with raised wheelchair accessible walkways throughout their property.
The cabin itself was tastefully decorated and in the woods and felt very secluded although you were really not far away from the restaurant , tipis and office. They had a cat whose name was Magic who would come and share her time with us.

Thanks so much for your feedback. It is very much appreciated.
Unfortunately, Magic, our cat, who was the best guest greeter, has passed away and is no longer with us :(
Hope to see you again sometime in the future.

Wonderful place for families looking for a nature and canoeing holiday. Peaceful and relaxing. Very enjoyable and safe outdoors environment for small children and teenagers alike. Chalets are clean and spacious (5 persons), included in the price are the sports facilities- canoeing and swimming in two lakes on site.

Four adults comfortably shared a large cottage in this beautiful location. Lovely woods right on the Mersey River. We also appreciated the easy -- and free! -- access to canoes and kayaks for exploring the river and the swimming raft. We look forward to a return visit, perhaps in the fall.

I wanted to stay near the Kejimkujic National Park, and sure enough, this accommodation is 5K away from the National Park. It is situated right along the Mersey River. Andrea was the hostess and oriented me around. They have different kinds of accommodations with varied prices. One that I could afford were the tents which are older than the tipis for $90 per night. There are also tipis for $60 per night and were new but all booked up. The pricing to me doesn't make sense. You need to share the restroom, shower, toilet and you walk about a minute away from your place. Take slippers along because if someone uses the shower before you, the entire floor is wet, even if you just have to go to use the toilet. They do provide a towel and face cloth, but you do need to bring your own toiletries. The parking is poor. I had to walk about 2 minutes to get to and from my car. You have to store any food in the communal kitchen. The kitchen is supplied with all the dishes and tools so you can cook inside or outside, but you have to bring your own food and also share the facilities. There is no place in your tent or tipi to charge your camera or phone, unless you use an outlet in the kitchen. Be prepared for lots of bugs. If you want all the comforts of home, this place is not for you. The pluses are that it is convenient to the park, you're right along the river, and you can also spend a full day at the park, and not have to drive the distance.

Thank you for your feedback and we're glad you enjoyed the location and proximity to the park. We offer a variety of experiences in a nature retreat setting. The wall tent ($90) and tipi ($75) are our camping options, which include shared facilities. The parking is away from the camping area to try and cut down on the vehicle noise, but we do have a spot outside the kitchen cabin to unload your food and luggage.
For a more private and less rustic experience we also have lodge rooms, chalets and a log house.
Thanks for visiting Mersey River Chalets.

Beautiful, tranquil setting. Cabin was lovely and all the staff were very friendly. Wonderful place to get away and simply enjoy the beauty of nature. There were other cabins nearby but you felt as if you were on your own. Hope to get back in the fall to enjoy the change of season.
