Retreat…unwind, relax, reconnect and rejuvenate
We invite you to unwind, relax, reconnect, and rejuvenate at our 115 guest room retreat center on a peaceful part of the Winnipeg River which is located in Pinawa, Manitoba inside the Whiteshell Provincial Park on the quieter, eastern side of the Park. Our all-inclusive, ‘cut-above’, retreat packages offer 11 acres of waterfront on this largely undeveloped river area. Pairs of loons nest on the islands around us and their mournful cries are music for the soul.
The hardest decision you’ll have to make: “where do I start?!” Hot tub, sauna, canoes, volleyball, tether ball, horse shoes, air hockey, walking and biking trails, movies and so much more, all at no extra cost, you’ll find yourself scratching your head wondering how you’ll be able to fit it all in.
Within the town of Pinawa… For those that want to be active, you can enjoy tennis, 18 hole golf course, golf range, large outdoor heated swimming pool in summer, sandy beach, playground and of course fishing right off our docks or canoes or with our guided fishing tour (Walleye, pike, bass and sturgeon).
Families of 10 to 350 members have come from far and wide to Wilderness Edge to celebrate special events as well as to get reacquainted after years of being apart. Many families are spread out across the country or the world, but some have experienced the joy of being reunited here!
