Learn more about this land: Beautiful 260 acres of mixed forest, open field, and biodiverse marsh all for yourself! In the wild countryside just North of the Historic Town of Perth, Ontario. Includes large fire pit, cookstoves, covered deck, 10x10 wood cabin (sleeps 2), groomed camp/tent sites for your additional guests to pitch their tents. We only rent to one person/party at a time so the whole place is yours to share with whomever you like or just with yourself! Very private. Our house is a half km from the campsites and you are kilometers from the nearest neighbours. During Summer and much of Spring and Fall, you should be able to drive up to the cabin. Unless your vehicle has especially low clearance. The road/path out to the cabin started as a well made tractor path that has held up well over the years but has some rocks and bumps. (Check with us ahead of time if driving to the site is important). Otherwise, when you arrive, you can park at our 100 year-old farmstead and then enjoy a beautiful, 10-minute walk to your site (We are happy to bring in your supplies loaded in our mini-tractor's little, red, wagon, if check-in happens while we are here). This pathway may be a bit muddy, slushy or icy but is kept cleared of fallen snow and mowed in the warmer months. You will sleep in a double sized bed on a firm wooden frame. The mattress is a 14", deep pillow-top, Sealy with a box-spring. Both mattresses are securely wrapped in full mattress covers and it is topped with a thick mattress pad for maximum coziness. Linen or fleece sheets are available and the bed has a large, warm hypoallergenic duvet, (duvet cover also available in linen or fleece), with three pillows of various firmness. The room contains two cozy chairs, one of which folds out into a lounge chair or even a bed. There is a newly constructed outhouse that is bright and easy to access. There is a hanging solar light that can be turned on as needed. During the year when the temperature stays above zero, there is a handwashing station set up behind the outhouse. Water and soap for this station is provided. There isn't running water in the cabin but we are happy to provide you as much tasty well water that you would like, for cooking/drinking/cleaning. We are ready to top up your water supply, as you need it. Propane water heater available upon request. No shower space in the winter but sponge/cloth bathing possible inside the cabin. (Cloths, towels, and body soap supplied). There is a beautiful, bright, roomy, cedar, outdoor shower available during the warmer months. Water is provided for a portable, rechargeable shower pump. Water can be heated in the sun or warmed up with some added boiled water. There are dishes, pots and pans, and other basic food-prep type equipment for your use. There is an area inside to prepare food that doesn't need cooking or to make ready food that is going to be cooked outside on our grill or propane stove. A small cooler is available to store any perishable food you may have. During the winter, the cooler can be kept at a proper temperature by moving it in and out of the deep freeze that is the Canadian outdoors. You will need to bring ice during the warmer seasons. A fully charged Lithium Ion Energizer power station is available that is trickle charged on sunny days by a solar panel. This pack is capable of powering most of the devices that you would bring on your trip such as laptops, iPads, or Bluetooth speakers. The power should last with moderate use for a couple of days but we are happy to pick it up daily to recharge if you require that. The cabin itself has solar lighting for the evenings and a bright light that you can plug into the power station, when needed. For extra guests beyond the initial 2, those guests will have to bring their own tents and beds/bedding and camp in the large clearing beside the cabin or elsewhere on the property. There is a large, 12x16 floating deck, directly outside the cabin that is covered by a large gazebo with optional walls. Seating and a cooking area is located on the covered deck.. The deck and the area near the cabin and fire pit is mowed and kept clear of snow and you will find a nice fire pit for outdoor warmth and relaxation with plenty of seating. The pit is equipped with gear for you to do open fire cooking. Fire wood is available for $5/large bundle or you may bring your own. There is a 12'x14', hard-top, walled/screened, furnished gazebo in the cleared area around the cabin close to both the cabin and the firepit that will be available until the snow becomes too difficult to clear that far. The land is a rugged mix of Canadian Shield, pocket swamps, forest and old fields slowly returning to the wild. There are some basic paths but you are also welcome to strike out on your own and enjoy the land. The area around the cabin is set up with larger groups in mind while still maintaining an intimate feel. We encourage friends and/or family to come together and camp out with two able to sleep in the cabin itself. Additional guests who may be using tents, tent-trailers, vans, etc, to join you on your stay, are able to pick close by, mowed clearings, to set up camp or they can move further into the woods and find a more secluded campsite. Firewood is available upon request at $6/bundle, ideally before arrival but more can be provided during your stay. Outdoor Theatre Option For a fee of $20, a large screen can be set up in the hard-top gazebo for use with a provided projector. A generator is required to power the projector and will be provided, fully fueled. Additional fuel can be purchased, if needed. There are also two, stereo-capable, rechargeable, Bluetooth speakers that can be used with the system. Guests can bring a laptop, gaming system or even just media on a USB stick. Note: the projector is picky about what files it will play from a USB. The best option is a laptop or similar device. HDMI cable provided.

Every detail was well laid out and the place was clean. Everything was private and serene; we especially loved the trails and the beautiful pond in the back. It's been 2 decades since my parents have camped and this has inspired them to glamp again!

Beautiful private sanctuary
We loved the glamping cabin, the beautiful scenery and the friendly service. Projector and shaded gazebo was an amazing experience as well as the liberating outdoor shower. Will for 100% be back! Friends are already quite envious of our experience 😏😎

It was a well needed break and C & L’s camp site was the perfect place for it. Perfect getaway for couples, maybe a group. C & L are great hosts they were responsive and shared all information before our stay. Larry also helped us setup the campfire for the first time. I would highly recommend this place.

Great stay! Great hosts!
Choleena and her partner were amazing hosts. They gave clear and helpful verbal and written instructions/directions for our stay. They were available if we needed them, and left us to have our privacy. The cabin was wonderful. We had everything we needed, and more. Their outhouse is the best smelling one I have ever been in. They left us very thoughtful little treats, and the place was beautifully decorated. The weather was very hot, so we weren't in the mood to take advantage of all the trails and amenities. However, we were very impressed with the strong little fan inside the cabin. It kept us very cool, when we slept. The gazebos were so nice. We put the two hammocks in one of them, and relaxed with books and cards, for most of a day. I would definitely recommend this beautiful getaway.

Everything was so perfect. The hosts were so accommodating and kind. The place is beautiful. So thoughtfully put together. It’s so private and yet they were available if we needed them. Everything is very well organized. We had such a beautiful two days and wish we could’ve stayed longer. The eggs are delicious and the preserves were such lovely touch. We will be back.
