Secluded glamping site in a soaring maple forest! Visit this beautiful location in a 20-acre mature maple forest complete with the mossy rocks of the Niagara Escarpment. This is the perfect place to reconnect to nature, unplug, relax, clear your mind, read, meditate, and get away from the noise of everyday life. Explore and listen to nature's music as stress melts away, swing in a hammock or sit on a tree platform and rest. Explore and listen to nature's music as stress melts away, swing in a hammock or sit on a tree platform and rest. The cabin is a complete bedroom, fall asleep in a luxurious double bed as you enjoy the delights of camping without the work. This is a truly unique experience, whether you're looking for a secluded romantic getaway or the space to find freedom in solitude. Your site is located 50m down a lit path through the woods.

Outside, there is a new private outhouse with a compost toilet, outdoor shower, sink and basin for washing. Showers are outdoor and solar (or kettle) heated.

Stargazing Bell Tent
This site is truly special. If you're looking for a quiet, relaxing immersion into nature with the comfort of a bed, kitchen, and some electricity... Laura and Dale's tent is the spot. We stayed in early spring as the forest woke up and endless trilliums bloomed. The site is a 5-ish minute walk on winding double track from the house, shower, and parking, which puts all of that well out of site and sound. They provide wagons which makes moving coolers and baggage very easy. Laura and Dale are very thoughtful hosts and clearly put so much care into their property and campsites. It was a birthday trip for my partner and we found a card and and a few other small touches waiting for us which made it that much more special. We'll likely be coming back here next time we make a trip to the Bruce!

It was pretty and had everything we needed. Glad we chose the tent because the cabin was awfully close to the house. The stars were pretty. The coyotes, chickens, and hosts were friendly.

Fantastic Time!
Laura’s land was absolutely stunning. We rented the tent for our short stay. When we first pulled onto the property we were greeted by chickens. It was a lovely little trail walk to the tent in the forest. As soon as we got there Laura came out and greeted us. There’s wagons to help bring your stuff to the campsite. The campsite was the perfect set up for people who want to spend time in the great outdoors but want to do a little glamping. The bathroom was incredibly clean for an outside outhouse and there was an automatic light inside! So helpful for nighttime. Plus there was peat moss to cover your business until you’re no longer embarrassed. All cooking material is provided which made cooking more pleasurable. They provided lots of water for cleaning dishes and washing hands. You hear the coyotes at night and it was such a thrilling part of the adventure. My only criticisms would have been the bed was uncomfortable for me but I am someone who is very picky when it comes to where I sleep and the clouds were blocking the stars the nights we stayed. You can tell there has been loads of thought and love put into this land and we greatly appreciated the hospitality and set up. Strongly recommend this place if you are considering. Also queer friendly folks!

Beautiful, serene, private and highly recommended. The numerous amenities make this stay so comfortable and cozy, while the natural setting immerses you within the forest. Having a private (and very well stocked) kitchen area, bathroom, shower and firepit sets this wonderful stay apart from so many others. You just need to show up and enjoy! I suggest exploring the site as well: the tent is stocked with games, books, puzzles, mozzie coils and other camping goodies. The optional experiences are such a clever addition as well, and I had the pleasure of having Laura prepare breakfast for me. She said she loves to cook, but she obviously also cooks with love. Her breakfast menu was considerate of my dietary needs and very very tasty. Far enough from nearby towns to enjoy truly dark and clear skies at night, but near enough to hidden little gems to hike, swim, shop and munch. We will be back!

Love this place!
This was my second stay with Laura and it was even better than the first as Laura continues to make little upgrades. We were a group of 4 women and we stayed at both the tent and the cabin. The amenities were great, and the cabin and tent were clean, cute and cozy. Thanks again Laura! I will be back for sure!
