Two clear ponds are a 10-minute walk away from the barn and are great for swimming during the summer months.

Freija is an extremely private 100 acre bird, wildlife, and stargazing sanctuary bordering a 350-acre conservation area. Endless maintained trails on varying terrain both on property and adjacent forest.

Our forest loft features everything needed for a comfortable stay, including an Amish-made queen-size bed, large harvest table, shower, composting toilet, hot water, Wi-Fi and a small kitchenette with utensils.

You will also find everything you need for your outdoor adventure: an outdoor fire pit, firewood, a powerful propane Weber BBQ, equipment like walking sticks, snowshoes, bicycles, your own basketball court and net and more.

For a full outdoor experience you can open up the walls during the warmer months and enjoy your dinner under the stars.

Bring your friends (pets allowed) and spend time hiking, birdwatching, canoeing on the pond and enjoying Canadian and Ontario nature in it's purest, most magical form. Follow iamfreija on Instagram for latest updates and more photos.
