Firewood incl.

Our 10x10' cabin is nestled a 1/2 km into the forest on 270 beautiful acres. Experience off-grid life with just enough amenities to be comfortable. Toast marshmallows at the fire pit, hike, or cozy up to the mini woodstove and watch the wildlife wander by.

The space
10x10 wood cabin, very private

You will find your cabin already warmed up when you arrive, (when the temp drops below 0), and you will keep it warm yourself by tending a beautiful, mini, glass-doored woodstove. Many an hour can be spent just gazing into a warm fire.

When you arrive, you can park at our 100 year-old farmstead and then enjoy a beautiful, 10-minute walk to your site (We are happy to bring in your supplies loaded in our mini-tractor's little, red, wagon, if check-in happens while we are here). This pathway may be a bit slushy or icy but is kept cleared of fallen snow. In the warmer, dryer months, it may be possible to drive your vehicle to the cabin. If this is important, check in advance with us.

You will sleep in a double-sized bed on a firm wooden frame. The mattress is a 14", deep pillow-top, Sealy with a box-spring. Both mattresses are securely wrapped in full mattress covers and it is topped with a thick mattress pad for maximum coziness. Linen or fleece sheets are available and the bed has a large, warm hypoallergenic duvet, (duvet cover also available in linen or fleece), with three pillows of various firmness.

The room contains two cozy chairs, one of which folds out into a lounge chair or even a bed.

There is a newly constructed outhouse that is bright and easy to access.

There isn't running water in the cabin but we are happy to provide you as much tasty well water that you would like, for cooking/drinking/cleaning. We are ready to top up your water supply, as you need it. Propane water heater available upon request. No shower space in the winter but sponge/cloth bathing possible inside the cabin. (Cloths, towels, and body soap supplied).

There are dishes, pots and pans, and other basic food-prep type equipment for your use. There is an area inside to prepare food that doesn't need cooking or to make ready food that is going to be cooked outside on our grill or propane stove. A cooler is available to store any perishable food you may have. In most cases, the cooler can be kept at a proper temperature by moving it in and out of the deep freeze that is the Canadian outdoors. Or, you can bring ice if you prefer.

Fully charged Lithium Ion Energizer power station available that is trickle charged on sunny days by a solar panel. This pack is capable of powering most of the devices that you would bring on your trip such as laptops, iPads, or Bluetooth speakers. The power should last with moderate use for a couple of days but we are happy to pick it up daily to recharge if you require that. The cabin itself has solar lighting for the evenings and a bright light that you can plug into the power station, when needed.

For extra guests beyond the initial 2, those guests will have to bring their own tents and beds/bedding and camp nearby.

There is a large, 12x16 floating deck, directly outside the cabin that is covered by a large gazebo with optional screen walls. Seating and a cooking area is located on the covered deck.. The deck and the area near the cabin and fire pit is mowed and kept clear of snow and you will find a nice fire pit for outdoor warmth. The pit is equipped with equipment for you to do open fire cooking. Fire wood is 15$ a wheelbarrow full but your first load is included in the cost of your stay.

The land is a rugged mix of Canadian Shield, pocket marshes, beaver ponds, forest and old fields slowly returning to the wild. There are some basic paths but you are also welcome to strike out on your own and enjoy the land.

Additional guests who may be using tents to join you on your stay are able to pick close by, mowed clearings, to set up camp or they can move further into the woods and find a more secluded campsite.

Where you’ll be

Perth, Ontario, Canada

Beyond the property, you will find the rural country side of Lanark County. We are a 15-20 min drive from Perth, Ontario and we encourage you to visit this beautiful, heritage town. A pleasant hour long drive will take you to Ottawa or Kingston, if you want to make any day trips. There are also several options for interesting excursions much closer than that.

During your stay

We live on the property, just a text or 10-minute walk away. Call or text if you need anything. :-)
We are happy to check in with you a couple of times a day or we can leave you as secluded as you like.

Daily top ups of water, power and wood are expected but different arrangements can be made if you want privacy.

If there is a snow fall, however, we will need to get out and keep it cleared. This shouldn't take long and we will soon be done and gone.
