Friluftsliv - a Scandinavian expression which translates to “open-air living”.The term is used to describe the value of spending time outdoors with nature in remote locations for both spiritual and physical well-being.

Thats just what this “ Campsuite” was designed for. Taking time to free your mind from work and at-home stresses. With the added benefit of knowing you have everything you need still right on site. With 80 acres of forest to be explored, your stay here will reconnect you with peace and calmness amongst wildlife and and forest. The property is full of fresh berries (in the right season), many different kinds of trees (including apples), deer, rabbits, partridge, newts, frogs and toads and many different bird species. There are hiking trails that lead you to a beautiful brooke, where you can relax and listen to the birds sing.

The site comes equipped with a 4 seasons wall tent with a fully set queen size bed, lots of beautiful solar lighting and soft fuzzy throw rugs for your feet. Also on site there is a washroom with a composting toilet and sink. Fully stocked “kitchen” with a BBQ with side burner, plates, bowls, cookware, utensils, salt, pepper, oil and coffee. You can relax out in the shade in the lounge/dining area under the beautiful 10’ by 12’ gazebo. There is also a solar panel for electricity with a 12 V rechargable battery. Can be used for charging electronics and powering small appliances ( power cooler, TV, fans ect.)

At night you can stargaze around the fire pit and roast marshmallows while listening to the crickets and night birds.

We are located just 7 mins from the town of Yarmouth (known for its abundance of lobster), which has all your amenities and we are between 10- 30 mins away from several beaches, both sandy and rocky, where you can go swimming, kayaking, surfing or just relax and enjoy the fresh ocean air. Cape Forchu Lighthouse is just 20 mins away with a cute little cafe at the top of the hill, so you can eat while watching the waves crash against the rocks.

There is plenty to do for everyone.

This site is set up for 2 people (1 queen bed). Please ask if you need to accommodate more as we will make exceptions for families. Additional cost may apply.

We loved the way the camp site was nestled in a large open area amidst a beautiful surrounding of mixed hardwood and softwood forest. It was a very peaceful space with lots of room to move around and observe the sights and sounds of the various birds who came to visit. Your site was well maintained and had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. We loved having the BBQ and the large relaxing sitting area under the gazebo. With the beautiful beaches and spectacular ocean views nearby, we will definitely return again soon. And BTW the food we ordered was absolutely delicious, we both agree this service was a real plus. Both you and Rob were perfect hosts!! Thanks for having us !!

Absolutely would recommend this spot to anyone! The site was so clean and spacious and the yurt itself was lovely and cozy. Lots to do in the surrounding area and nice trails to explore on the property. Also an awesome place if you have pets - our dog loved running around the property! Alicia and Rob were very friendly and so accommodating with our late arrival. They have thought of everything you could need when staying here. 10/10!

Excellent experience

We had the best time and highly recommend this experience! We are not campers so very much out of our comfort zone and this spot is super comfortable! The tent is absolutely beautiful and the bed is super comfortable. The outdoor shower was exhilarating. We had everything we needed and more as the camp is very well set up. Alicia and Rob are very welcoming and accommodating.

What a wonderful spot, with beautiful sunsets! I took my whole family to the Campsuite: my fiance, my 8 month old baby, and my crazy dog. Each of us had so much fun!

The attention to detail is like nothing I've seen before. If you turned up with just the clothes on your back, there isn't a single thing you could possibly need... Except maybe bug spray LOL! Alicia and Rob have gone above and beyond with providing an amazing "glamping" experience. We opted for a BBQ food package, and all of the items we had were delicious.

Thank you so much for creating this little piece of heaven! My only regret is that we didn't take advantage of the hiking trails, but we will most certainly be back 😊

We had a wonderful stay at Open Air. The owners were extremely friendly and accommodating. The site included everything that we needed for a comfortable stay; glamping would be a good word to describe the set up. The owners recommended we bring bug spray, and boy, were they right. The mosquitos were thick at dusk but were managable with spray, a fire, and long-sleeved clothing. Going to Open Air was a neat experience that I would do again! It certainly beat the run-of-the-mill hotel room.

A fantastic stay in a magical tent! Myself, my partner and our 5year old loved our stay in this gorgeous tent. So many lovely little touches and treats for us to enjoy!
It was tranquil and peaceful bit with the beautiful tent, pristine toilet and luxury outdoor shower we felt like we were getting a little treat.
We can't wait to go back!
Our 5 year old rates or ten billion out of ten billion!! Can't beat that!

What a perfect little spot, I love the thought of camping but hate the thought of setting up, and we didn’t have to!! I think the dogs loved it more than the people, which is saying a lot! It was a magical little get away.
