Lovingly designed and built tiny house in the heart of the beautiful Beaver Valley. 2 Double beds, small kitchenette, rustic deck & living area with a gorgeous outhouse. The property has extensive edible landscapes & greenhouse filled with seedless grapes & edible perennials. Beautiful views of the escarpment, close to the Bruce Trail & Beaver River access point for canoeing and kayaking. Shop at the achingly charming Kimberley General Store. Close to Blue Mountains, Thornbury & Collingwood

The space
This cozy tiny house is packed to the brim with charm. Kids adore the private bed alcoves & everyone appreciates browsing the carefully curated library that includes mainly works of literature along with books on gardening, politics, art & more. The built-in bunk beds are double-bed-sized and surrounded by bookshelves. The floor space is 12' x 9' which is just enough to accommodate an intimate seating area and kitchenette with live-edge ash countertop and shelves.
This is a 'glamping' sort of experience. There's no running water, but we provide large jugs of drinking water which we'll happily refill as needed. There's an electric two-burner stovetop provided, and everything you need to prepare a meal. There's no fridge, but we supply a cooler and ice-packs upon request. The 'washroom' is an outhouse which uses a bucket system, which may take some getting used to. We empty the bucket regularly and compost the deposits for use around fruit and nut trees. This ensures the outhouse remains clean and odour-free. There is wifi, but it's a weak signal; it's able to support things like e-mail, but not videos or movies.
There's also no shower available for guests. One option is to visit the Scandinave Spa in the Blue Mountains while you're here; they have hot showers to compliment their hot & cool baths & sauna in a wonderful outdoor setting.
In the winter the cabin is well-insulated and it’s easily heated with an electric space heater, but the outhouse is unheated.

Guest access
Guests have exclusive access to the cabin. The outhouse is shared with customers of the plant nursery during the growing season (but is in fact rarely used, and fully lockable).

Other things to note
If you're interested in renting a canoe or kayak, try Free Spirit Tours, in the village of Heathcote (about 10 minutes from us). They'll shuttle you to places upriver so you can paddle the beautiful Beaver river and look for turtles and other thrilling sights.

Location

Kimberley, Ontario, Canada

The property is 3km North of the charming village of Kimberley, which has a marvellous general store and a fantastic restaurant called Justin's Oven. We're an easy walk to the Beaver River, in which you can swim with the fish and frogs or throw in a canoe or kayak and paddle for about 3 hours to the next access point. The river floods in the spring, which has prevented people from building alongside it, so it's remained a flourishing habitat for wildlife and has been designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. We're a 20-minute drive to the lakefront towns of Thornbury and Meaford, and about 30 minutes from the Blue Mountains and Collingwood, along with the heavenly Scandinave Spa.

I'm a passionate gardener and builder and run a plant nursery specializing in edible perennials. I sometimes welcome international volunteers to help with the nursery, so I decided to build a cabin for them, and it now doubles as a guest cabin.
