Lawrencetown Lodge is home to several cozy log cabins that offer guests a secluded, backcountry experience with modern comforts. The log cabins were all recently built, and you’ll be welcomed by the woody smell of cedar when you step inside. Each cottage is tucked away into the trees with its own private wood-fired hot tub, free of chemicals and drained, cleaned and refilled with fresh water for each new reservation. ​
