“Excellent value. Amenities available went above and beyond what we were expecting! The warm beverage selection, the welcome gift, the complimentary bag of firewood...just excellent hospitality. This is ideal for couples and people with young families. Our kids enjoyed the video games and jacuzzi tub on rainy days. I enjoyed the fully stocked kitchen as I wasn't lacking anything to make a great meal. Great place to rest and enjoy nature!”
The Little Retreat in the Forest is your Canadian secluded, woodsy, magical pup friendly forest escape. A very short drive north of beautiful Gimli, down a long winding driveway, waiting for you to restore and disconnect. Nestled in the spruce, with all the amenities, plus a woodstove, lots of wood, hammocks, fire pits, hiking trails, BBQ, swimming/skating pond, snowshoeing, my vinyl collection and no TV. Just you on 80 acres of Forest. Find us on FB/Instagram at @littleretreatintheforest.
“Wonderful stay as always! We enjoyed beers and books on the deck. Husband and dog loved their walks on the property and trails. We loved getting serenaded at night by all the pond critters. Clean, welcoming, and stocked up with everything you need. It was a great little getaway to celebrate our 3rd Anniversary and our pup's 2nd Birthday. It's nice to unwind amidst nature and sleeps are always so great away from city noises. Spent a couple hours walking around Gimli in the sun too, after grabbing a coffee from our favourite Manitoba roaster - Flatland Coffee. Michael is always quick to respond to questions, give tips or advice, and is a kind + caring host. We will definitely be back! <3”
The private guest room accommodates a maximum of two in a private setting, with a large attached sundeck, propane BBQ and patio furniture. It is housed in a separate building from the main house. One mile north is Grand Beach Provincial Park where you can take in all that the park has to offer - hiking/biking trails, fishing & world renowned sandy beaches. The popular South Beach Casino or the championship links of the Grand Pines Golf course are short drives away.
“We had such a wonderful stay! Fran is the perfect host. Welcoming, friendly and helpful. The cute and cozy cabin is spotless. Perfect location, quiet street and lovely enclosed garden. It was so beautiful and peaceful. I recommend this place!”
