Waters Edge Eco Lodge: A sustainable travel experience in Saskatchewan’s Meadow Lake Provincial Park

Pristine lakes, beautiful sandy beaches and hiking trails through the boreal forest abound. Spanning over 1,600 sq. kilometres, Meadow Lake Provincial Park is one of the largest provincial parks in Canada.

In the middle of this natural oasis, on the edge of Greig Lake on the east side of the park, lies the cozy Waters Edge Eco Lodge. It was created as a sanctuary for visitors looking to unwind from the busyness of life. Since 2022, the lodge is owned and operated by the Waterhen Lake First Nation .




The lodge is operated in an environmentally sustainable manner to minimize impact on the environment and our Earth. The practice of the 3 Rs - Recycle - Reduce - Reuse reflects in many areas of the lodge:


·       locally sourced labour, material and goods

·       reclaimed lumber was incorporated into the design of the building

·       reduction of energy loss using triple plane windows

·       geothermal heating & cooling, reducing the fossil fuel consumption

·       reduction of power consumption by use of LED and fluorescent lighting

·       water conservation with showers and toilets

·       on-site organic garden for production of fresh, healthy and sustainable food

·       composting to reduce garbage

·       abdication of disposables

·       100% natural personal care products, produced in Canada

·       living in harmony with wild animals and trying not to disturb them in their natural habitat




Water Edge Eco Lodge offers eight guestrooms in the main lodge and three cabins. A tipi village with glamping accommodation is just being built and will await visitors in the future.




The lodge owners are continuously developing new immersive cultural experiences celebrating Waterhen First Nation involving Waterhen Elders, Indigenous culinary, and other culturally significant experiences. Upcoming experiences may include drum groups, dancing, guided tours, water tours, and night sky astronomy tours.



 

Ensuring visitors have an opportunity to enjoy the tranquilities of nature is a priority, but adventurers can still fill their cup with complimentary access to canoes, kayaks, paddle boards and paddle boats.




Sunrise with coffee can be enjoyed from the privacy of your deck. If you are lucky, the Northern Lights will put on a show across the dark night’s sky.
