This beautiful farm was once farmed by the McDonald family, one of which was named Willy Allan, hence our road name. Our family has had the pleasure to farm this 600 acre property since 2014. Come and experience life on the farm or simply enjoy the peacefulness and tranquility of the great outdoors. Learn more about this land: This is a small 8 x 20 wood cabin, there is a bunk bed, wood stove, and solar power provides a small fridge. Enjoy the beautiful outdoors, swim in the pond, play cards and games, hike through our silvopasture forest and enjoy a relaxing campfire. You can also tour our farm. You are welcome to set up tents for additional guests if you wish. There is a picnic table, and kitchen available. Pets are welcome. Campfires are permitted as long as there is no fire ban.

Camping on the Farm!
The Goose is quite honestly the best ‘glamping’ experience we’ve ever had! The site itself is at the back of the farm, so you get privacy whilst having stunning views on the farm! The site came fully equipped with everything you’d ever need: swimming pond, campfire, solar powered light, BBQ…the list goes on! The cabin itself is surprisingly large offering plenty of space while being super cozy. They were also exceptionally accommodating and didn’t rush us our check our so that we could enjoy a morning walk in their stunning Maple Grove. The best part of all was the farm tour. Julia and her family gave us a spectacular tour of her farm. She took the time to teach us about their farming practices, show us all of the animals, and answered all of our questions! We were in awe of their passion towards their craft, and gained a newfound respect for our local farmers. On the way out, we stopped by their little storefront to pick up some of their organic meat and maple syrup. Julia took the time to explain what parts of the animal each piece of meat was and suggested the best products for us. This was the cherry on top of a fabulous weekend. Overall, this is a stay that you won’t regret. In fact, we’re already planning our next trip back! Thank you Julia and family for sharing your space with us :)

A perfect experience for us
10/10 experience, and absolutely one of my favourite rustic/glamping places I've ever been to. We went right after labour day weekend happened, but we could have gone here any other time and it would've been as perfect. The meat products they offer as part of their several packages are out of this world stellar. The little beach they have with activities, super cute and pretty fun. There's a hammock, a picnic table, a fire pit, a bbq grill, and there *is* a shower (but it needs to be attached to potable water to work). The outhouse is really cute (which is funny to say about an outhouse), and the inside of the cabin is adorable. We brought our two dogs with us on the farm tour, and we all got to meet Roxy who is an absolute sweetheart. Our dogs had some great fun in the sand and in the water, to which I could not have asked for a better experience. Our dogs mean the world to us, and a getaway from the city is always made ten times better and actually relaxing when we can bring them; for us, this really was perfect. Julia is an amazing host who was incredibly responsive and caring during our trip. We loved every second of it, and are already thinking about when we can go back. Thank you for the wonderful experience ❤️

Amazing! Wish we could’ve stayed!
Amazing and beautiful. Listening to coyotes while we were in bed, could hear the rooster calls in the morning, they were kind enough to provide firewood, utensils, water, and everything we needed. The farm tour was very interesting, too! We were genuinely interested and asked questions. You can tell they take care of the cows as the cows are free to roam their property freely! 5/5 stars, would recommend to anyone! And will return if we are in the area again! PS, don’t wear nice shoes/sandals… it’s a farm, so expect farm things.

This site is quite lovely. A man made pond home to fish, birds, turtles and a couple of ducks. You can do many water activities and the water is lovely. The cabin is quaint. A set of double bunk beds, a rocking chair, dinette set for two. Nice clean cottage. No running water but there is a basin to do dishes. Outside, you can set up a tent for your guests, or even extra space. The fire pit is perfect, bunch of chairs around it, there is a hammock to chill in.. so much more. I'm looking forward to coming back. My puppy loved all the freedom he got..

Private pond and cabin!
The cabin and surrounding area was serene and felt very private. My daughters loved playing in the sand by the water of the private pond and we where constantly rotating between the different boats! (Kayak, Canoe, stand up paddle board, and pedal boat) We all enjoyed the farm tour and seeing the cows each morning as they went for their morning walk.

Charming Cabin, Exceptional Hosts!
A step above camping, The Goose is the perfect destination for outdoorsy people who don't mind the absence of running water and appreciate the luxury of four walls and a roof! This quaint cabin is set way back on the property, providing lots of privacy and also a beautiful view of the farm lit up at night. The Booijink's are wonderful hosts - thoughtful, welcoming, and extremely accommodating. We loved snowshoeing all around their property and getting to see the way they farm with care and compassion. We picked up food from their store on the way out; it doesn't get more fresh or local than that! A delightful and unique getaway -- we would absolutely recommend it!
