I used to have a conventional house (and conventional life!) in the GTA suburbs. Now I live off-grid and solar-powered, in the country surrounded by 50 acres of woodlands. I spent 25+ years working as a counsellor, helping people find their life & career direction, but now retired I seem to draw more upon an eclectic collection of qualifications including Yoga Teacher, Labyrinth Faciliator, Master Naturalist... and certified Chainsaw Operator! I enjoy meeting the kinds of interesting people who come to stay at this unique place & space, but I am also sensitive to balance being welcoming & helpful with allowing people the privacy, space & peace they may be seeking.

During your stay
It's all about peace, nature, and privacy here. It’s nice to chat with guests and get to know each other a bit, but if what you want to do is seclude yourself and do your own thing that is totally fine too. It’s your time and space to make whatever kind of experience you like. As host & property owner, I am around most of the time if you require assistance or have questions about anything on- or off-property. I have broad knowledge of the local area, from the Beaver Valley all the way up to Tobermory and down to Kincardine, and always happy to recommend routes, suggest activities, eating places, and so on. I have a particular interest in off-the-beaten-track places, and less-touristy experiences, without hordes of people.
