La Cabaña in the Woods

Welcome to “La Cabaña in the Woods” at Villa Vida Loca Farm Market, in beautiful Sunderland, Ontario!

Our tiny Cabaña is tucked away in the woods on our gorgeous, private 10-acre property in the heart of North Durham. We offer a unique glamping experience with all the benefits of camping, but with a roof over your head, floor under your feet and super cool amenities.

Please read our full listing before requesting a booking. If you’re unsure about something, just ask. We’re very laid back, approachable and inclusive people, and can’t wait to welcome you.


We’re surrounded by Beaverton on Lake Simcoe, Port Perry on Lake Scugog and Uxbridge (the Trail Capital of Canada), which are a close driving distance away. Around the corner from us, the Beaver River Wetland Trail (part of the Trans Canada Trail) is the perfect place for a hike or bike ride.

There’s lots of other exciting things to do and see in the surrounding areas – fabulous restaurants, breweries and wineries, top golf courses, beaches, fishing, watersports, agri-tourism experiences, events and more. Upon your arrival, we’ll provide you with an up-to-date list of recommendations based on the season.

While on-site, you can visit our chickens and goats, learn about honey bees, stroll the property, visit our boutique farm market and enjoy some good eats from our Smoke Shack (open Saturdays and Sundays from May long weekend until the end of October). Check out villavidalocamarket.com for a listing of pop-up dinners, events with live music at our Cowboy Cauldron, cooking classes and more. There may be something going on during the time you’d like to visit.

The Glamping Experience

This is a rustic – but luxurious – Cabaña glamping experience. Nothing beats falling asleep to the sounds of crickets and frogs, and waking up under a canopy of trees to the sounds of birds singing and smell of sweet nature.

As the Cabaña is in the forest, it’s easily accessible by wild animals, such as bears, coyotes, fox and other critters (oh my!), as well as mosquitos, spiders and bugs. If you’re not an outdoorsy person, this might not be the best experience for you.

We also have two large, friendly dogs who will be properly introduced to all guests upon arrival. Kota and Maximus are absolutely going to visit you, so if you’re not dog people, this may not be the stay for you either.

Want to bring a couple of friends along for the adventure? We’ll allow up to two other guests in your party at a small additional cost. These guests will need to bring a tent, which may be placed next to, or nearby, the Cabaña.

Kids and dogs (as long as they get along with other dogs) are welcome!

As we currently only offer one glamping site, you will have exclusive access to the outdoor space and amenities.

The Indoor Space

The Cabaña has a sleeping loft (accessed by ladder only) with a comfortable queen size mattress. Bedding and pillows are included and laundered after every guest visit. Heads up (or down?!): It’s not possible to stand in the sleeping loft area – the ceiling has angles and the height at its highest point is under 4 feet.

Enjoy comfortable, indoor seating with pillows, blankets and a coffee table. We also provide a Keurig coffee maker, coffee and mugs in the Cabaña.

There isn’t any heating or air conditioning, but we have a fan for those hot summer nights.

There is WiFi available but no TV.

The Outdoor Space

You will prepare all meals outdoors (view our list below of everything you’ll need to bring) – there’s no kitchen for cooking. We supply a small propane-fired tabletop BBQ outside the cabin.

If camp cooking isn’t your thing, or you simply want to treat yourself, we encourage you to enjoy one or two of the many local restaurants. On Saturdays and Sundays, from May long weekend until the end of October, our Smoke Shack (on-site) is also open with lots of delicious options to choose from.

There’s no running water in the Cabaña but we provide a hand washing station and outdoor camping shower.

We have a super cute, clean, camping outhouse located steps from the Cabaña. This is not a flushing toilet, it’s an outhouse.

Guests Also Have Access To:

• Large campfire pit with Muskoka chairs (free firewood provided)• Six-person hot tub• Large, in-ground swimming pool• Lounge chairs for tanning• Picnic table and hammock

Cabaña Access

Upon your arrival, we’ll greet you and show you around – so please keep us updated on your expected arrival time! The Cabaña is only accessible by foot. Parking is in the driveway in front of our home and the walk to the Cabaña is about 300 feet. Guests will access the Cabaña by heading to the right of our home, past the back deck and hot tub, past the campfire pit and on to the trail to the left. Once in the woods, we ask that you stay on the trails as the property is not level with many hills, downed trees and stumps.

Packing List

Please bring along the following items as we do not provide them:

• Insect repellents or coils, bug spray• Extra bedding, sleeping bags and pillows• Favourite camping chairs • Bathing suits and towels• BBQ lighter• Cooler, cooking utensils, cutlery, dishes and cups • Drinking water and beverages• Groceries/prepared food• Flashlight• Garbage bag(s)• Good book • Laptop with favourite movie downloaded and some fun board games (in case of bad weather)• Device chargers • Bluetooth speaker• Toiletries


1. Please do not bring your own firewood as we do not want to risk introducing pests or insects from firewood that travels here. We provide free wood from our own property.

2. Please do not bring candles as they are inappropriate to burn in the Cabaña. We have soft romantic lighting all ready for you!

3. We do not charge a cleaning fee so that we can keep our rates as low as possible. We ask that you respect the property, clean up after yourself and leave no trace! Please remove and take all garbage and recycling with you. 

We do our best to provide a stress-fee and enjoyable experience for all of our guests. If at any time during your stay you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch with us so we can address them for you right away.

We had a great time at the cabin, it was a perfect way to celebrate my husband's birthday. The cabin is super neat and clean with a lovely and romantic ambiance. Brian was very kind and helpful and guided us through our stay. We really loved the hosts' hospitality. My husband even got free-range eggs and so delicious muffins as birthday gifts. I recommend the cabin for couples who want to connect with nature and have quality time together.

Beautiful, well maintained, quiet, neat and clean campground. I concur with other reviews about the host. They made our experience even better. They were very friendly, warm and extended their hospitality by letting us wander off and explore. We got lucky and got to see the live band and pig roast. Brian makes the best Brisket on a bun. The cabana is so clean, cute and well amentized.

It's a best glamping experience you can ask for.

Being int the middle of the woods was such a unique experience and we loved every second of it. The cabin is so adorable and well built/maintained. Just spending the night outside hearing the sounds of nature was amazing. Ann and Greg are really great. We really enjoyed chatting with them and exploring their market. We bought some blue (yes!) eggs and really yummy honey (try the orange-infused one!). I can't wait to go back in the winter and also try their brisket.

I loved the cabin stay at Villa Vida loca!! It was so many things and nothing short from amazing. My boyfriend and I thought it was fun, clean, spacious and just what we needed for a weekend away from the city. The hosts are so personable and friendly. Great value for money as the cabin has amenities so close by. Everything is walking distance. The event they hosted had great food and a friendly and fun crowd. Loved this whole experience.
