Off-Leash Training

I was just wondering if anybody could offer any advice/point me in the right direction of how to go about training my dog to walk with my husband and I off-leash. We will be spending a week at our cottage this summer, and we are really hoping to be able to have him off leash while there . Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated- I am a little worried about it because of course he is still a dog, and I am concerned that he will chase something into the woods and not be able to find his way back (the property is huge and most of it is forest). I realize that one of the things I will need to perfect is his recall- his is okay, not great (suggestions for this would be great too). Unfortunately we were not able to train him while he was a puppy as we adopted him at age 1. Thanks!
