SIX NATIONS – As part of the on-going pandemic and keeping with social distancing guidelines, Chiefswood Park is hosting a virtual launch of the new completed cabin accommodations.
The virtual launch event will be streamed live via the SNGRDC YouTube Channel beginning at 11:30 a.m.. Attendees will hear from various presenters over the course of the 30-minute virtual event. During the live stream, viewers will be provided with a brief overview of the park and its amenities, get to see a time lapse progression video of the
build, and will be provided with an exclusive look at the inside design and features of the cabins.
“We are excited to safely showcase the Cabins to our community and encourage everyone to join us live on September 22 from the comfort of their homes,” Said Spring Sault, Chiefswood Park Manager. The fifteen cabin accommodations were designed to match authentic local culture and history while providing a rustic, yet modern stay. The cabins will be able to house one to eight guests depending on the size. The larger cabin is 594 square feet, and the smaller studio style cabin is 342 square feet. Both cabin styles will include a covered porch, private bathroom, master bedroom, living space, kitchenette and loft area. Two of the cabins are wheelchair accessible.
The revitalization of Chiefswood Park began in August 2018. In the original plans twenty cabins were proposed, and only fifteen were built due to a discovery of artifacts on the property. After working together with Six Nations Lands & Resources and Fischer Archeology, the site was properly cleared of the artifacts for safe keeping. All fifteen Cottage Accommodations were constructed by local community members of the Projects & Property Management Division of SNGRDC. The construction of the site and was completed in November 2019 and overnight rentals began in September 2020.
