Our business was built from a love of wilderness canoe tripping in cedar canvas canoes.
Wooden canoes are special for many reasons. They are made from elements of the very forests that they travel through, evoking a legacy of tradition and adventure. They are built by hand using techniques passed down from one generation of builders to the next for over 100 years. A wooden canoe is not a piece of equipment that will become outdated and obsolete; it is functional art that becomes a treasured family heirloom. These canoes are passed down from one generation to the next, who not only inherit a canoe but, the joys and memories made from exploring the waterways they have traveled.
Our business is focused on the continuation of the heritage of the wooden canoe.
We specialize in the construction and restoration of traditional cedar canvas canoes. We are a full service canoe shop with the ability to repair and restore all types of wooden canoes and small wooden boats. Every vessel that we work on is finished to the highest standards and reflects our commitment to excellence. We guarantee that our work will meet or exceed its original condition.
In addition to canoes, we offer a whole line of canoe inspired décor for the home or cottage. All of our décor items are built using the same techniques and materials used in the construction of the full size canoes, and are finished to the same high standards.
