Finbarr and Eleanor have owned Springfield Farm since January 2014 where they have worked to re-establish the 118 acres as a working family farm. It started with two acres of organic crops but now ambition has taken over and there's a new barn being built and to be open in 2020 for a terroir experience.

Springfield Farm offers a Yurt experience. This is a beautiful "tent" a "glamping" boutique experience.

Close to Martintown, Cornwall, Ottawa, Montreal and Stateside.

The space
Come "Glamping" for a night or two in the beautiful, unique Yurt in Apple Hill, Ontario. Stay in this spacious Mongolian-style, 100% Canadian made Yurt on a traditional family farm just 1.5 hours west of Montreal, 50 minutes south of Ottawa and 20 minutes north of Cornwall/US Border. The Yurt is approximately 226 square feet, open concept with a ramp to the entrance door of the Yurt. For this reason furnishings are compact - the double bed is an antique one, smaller than standard and hence if you are over 6' it is possibly a consideration to use the little chair/cot that is inside the Yurt. The retro Danish Chair/cot is a pull-out and sheets are provided. We do recommend this experience for 2 adults who share the one double bed and possibly one other adult for the cot or a child. Please note that this is not camping but it is also not a hotel room and as such we cannot accommodate larger groups in the Yurt nor can we reconfigure the beds for such a small space - we appreciate your understanding.

Very Important to note this Yurt is "OFF-GRID" which means that there is no electricity inside of the Yurt, we provide LED lights that are battery-powered and request that there is no smoking inside the Yurt or wax candles that are lit due to safety regulations.
You and your guests (maximum 3 persons) will be welcomed by hosts Finbarr McCarthy and Eleanor McGrath and we welcome you to walk and talk with the hosts about their fields, The farm is surrounded by nature and the Beaudette River runs through the property. Guests will be welcomed by the songs of birds, stillness of the night sky and free from the hustle and bustle of city life. A paradise to be experienced in a Yurt!

Hosts, Finbarr McCarthy and M Eleanor McGrath are passionate about organic farming. Springfield Farm has been a family farm for over 200 years, with a traditional Loyalist stone home and large dairy barn on the property. In 2014, they purchased the farm so as to raise their family within a strong farming community and participate in the growing "field to table" movement. They have added the Yurt to their farm to share their passion for the farm and provide an opportunity for Eco-tourism, artist retreat and raise awareness of the beauty of Apple Hill and the surrounding Celtic heritage of Stormont Dundas Glengarry and the Mohawk Nation of Akwesasne.
