Life slows down the moment you arrive. This beautiful country home is surrounded by 30 acres of private forest with a pond, an orchard and access to the Bruce Trail. Enjoy a crisp fall walk on the trail or curl up on the couch by the fire and take in the view. This hidden gem is located just 10 minutes away from the Beaver Valley Ski Club and 35 minutes to the Scandinave Spa & Blue Mountain. It is a perfect fit for active families or small groups of friends who love spending time in nature.
This cozy country home is located at the top of a steep country road and is surrounded by acres of forest with private access to the Bruce Trail. The homestead itself is steeped in nature and history with mature fruit trees (apple, cherry and pear), organic gardens, honey bee hives, a private pond and a small creek that winds through the property. The interior of the house has a warm and authentic farmhouse feel. It is simple, rustic and uncluttered- a great place to relax and enjoy life in the country! You are welcome to explore the property while you are here. You may harvest the fruit from the trees and the veggies from the gardens and cook up an in-season feast. There are several trails in the area that are perfect for hiking and snowshoeing. We will provide a collection of brochures and maps of local trails and attractions. There is an outdoor fire pit that you are welcome to use and plenty of firewood is provided. Many of our guests enjoy the ambiance of the indoor fireplace in the cooler months. The cozy living room is the perfect spot to enjoy appetizer and an après-ski :)
