This off grid bunkhouse in Ladysmith, QC sleeps 1- 6 people, ideal for personal or small group retreats, a writers refuge, healing space, family glamping experience or pure nature immersion. Prime location for bird sighting, animal watching and hiking through our groomed trails. Located on a 40 acre organic farm homestead, the bunkhouse overlooks open fields with a breathtaking sunset view. PLEASE NOTE GUESTS BRING ALL THEIR OWN BEDDING, SLEEPING BAGS, BLANKETS, PILLOWS, TOWELS, DISH CLOTHS ETC.

The space
A sweet set up, with 4 single bunkbeds on the lower floor, plus a double bed up on the 3rd level.

Set on 40 acres of forest and field, find groomed hiking trails with signage, with diverse flora and fauna.

The bunkhouse offers a rustic outside sheltered kitchen space at the back, complete with a small cooler and camp stove, dishes, cutlery and basic pots and pans. Guests will need to bring their own ice for cooler. Washing water and drinking water is provided. Outside chairs and table provided.

Some fire wood is provided to start, with other fire starting materials including lighters. More can be purchased for $10 on site at anytime. Please do not bring foreign wood onto site.

This bunkhouse is completely off-grid, having no electricity, which makes it great for "unplugging". Cell coverage is available by most networks. Water for washing and drinking is provided onsite, both at the bunkhouse and at the shower area, which is located a short walk from the bunkhouse. NO HOT WATER. Toilet paper is provided.

This accommodation is considered 3 SEASON (spring, summer, fall) as the showers, kitchen and toilets are located OUTSIDE under the open air. There is a propane heater for keeping the chill out when necessary. The bunkhouse does not heat evenly when it's less than -10 degrees, so winter rentals are optional if cooler room temperature suits. For summer, there are ample windows and ventilation hatches on the upper floor to let in breezes.

Close by across the field are the farm's heritage breed chickens and heritage pigs (coming end of May) who can be visited during your stay.

This is a great choice for those who like glamping it up a little, or "roughing it"! Either way, it's a good combination of camping and cottaging.

Where you’ll be

Shawville, Quebec, Canada

While in the area, there are many beautiful locations to visit. Walking along the country roads nearby offers a longer hike or cycling trail than the one located onsite (our trail is not fit for cycling) with small creeks and ponds.
For additional tourist attractions google " Tourism Pontiac".

Less than 5 min drive is a gas station(sells ice, food, supplies), restaurant, chip stand and hardware store in the town of Ladysmith.
