After a short less than 5 minute walk, check out the sunset view out the back patio door, birds and squirrels chirping galore. Relax, have a campfire, dip your feet in the nearby brook and enjoy nature in this cozy and comfortable space. Explore acres of wooded area or take a walk/snowshoe in the trail. Seasonal activities such as a small apple orchard near by, pumpkin patch along with some farm animals (chickens, turkeys and sometimes cows)Are you trying to find yourself or hide from all of those trying to find you? Disconnect with the business of everyday life and reconnect with nature at Bootsie’s Back 40 where a cozy, NON SMOKING, private off-grid camp awaits your company in the woods. Available all year round, with a wood stove to provide heat and solar panels that provide some power. Flush camper toilet, no shower. Drinking water provided. There is a comfortable double bed as well as a pull out couch and bunk bed for the children. Access to four-wheeler/snowmobile trails if you’re looking for an off road adventure. Purchase locally-sourced Farm fresh beef and eggs for an extra fee. Within 10 minutes to Amherst NS where you can purchase any amenities you may have forgotten Located 25 minutes from Tidnish kayaking, the Bird sanctuary walking trail, 20 minutes from Sackville NB waterfowl park. 30 minutes from quaint Pugwash with a lovely farmers market on Saturday’s. This is an off-grid cabin-camping experience. It is recommended that our guests have (some) camping/backcountry experience. Guests should have the basic understanding of how to light a fire in the woodstove, how to build a fire in the fire pit, how to safely prepare meals without a full kitchen, basic first aid knowledge etc.

Beautiful and cozy!
Absolutely loved our stay and our hosts were amazing. Definitely coming back next time we are in NS. Being tucked away and with the wood stove, could not ask for anything better.

Would recommend!
Had the best time at Dawn and Terry's off grid experience! This lovely, tucked away cabin is possibly the best value you can get. Close to many attractions and great places to eat. Can't wait to return and see future updates that will be added over time!

It was a beautiful quiet place to stay. Easy to find with the directions Dawn gave. I would definitely stay again, and would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet place to stay. It was just a wonderful place. We loved the animals also.
