We have a beautiful, densely treed and well groomed 1 acre piece of property in desirable cottage country that's craving company! The mature trees, rolling terrain and private road offer lots of privacy and a peaceful atmosphere. It has a great fire pit, rustic outhouse and picnic table equipped with an umbrella. It is within walking distance to the world famous, Panam Summer Games host " The Minden White Water Preserve/Rapids", which is used for kayaking and hiking. Walking distance to a public beach on the desirable Horseshoe Lake, part of a 3 chain lake, where you can fish, swim and relax in clean, sparkling waters. There is also access across the road from our property to a township concession strip of land for public use, where you can take a dip, drop a line to fish , or launch your canoe. Very desirable location; only 10 minute drive to village of Minden, and surrounded by natural beauty and activities for nature lovers! What are you waiting for!?

Date of Visit: Saturday May 22- Sunday May 23

My boyfriend and I booked with Vanessa to get out of the city and enjoy some time camping while surrounded by nature. Not only did Vanessa and Taylor accommodate us very last minute, we were also provided with drinking water and firewood! The area was beautiful and we experienced great communication with the hosts. Our booking exceeded our expectations and we look forward to returning soon!

They were great hosts, incredibly accommodating and helpful. Definitely would recommend a visit, very peaceful and quiet at night, it was amazing. Two things to keep in mind: 1) If you have a trailer like we do, the fire pit is a distance from the flat area to park. We had to ask them to help us tow our teardrop trailer on to the hill so as to park near the fire (we visited in November). We were thankful they were willing to use their pick-up to help us out! In a tent you’d be fine. 2) A neighbour has a rooster that goes off at 3am.. 5am.. 8am.. bring ear plugs! We forgot to do so.

Veronica, thank you so much for your feedback! You were great guests to host! It was so cool how you had made your camper! If you choose to visit again, we could move the fire pit closer to road to accommodate the trailer. In the near future we hope to level some our land to better accommodate all vehicle types as our terrain is hilly. We always appreciate the responses from our guests. Thank you again and take care!

Vanessa prepared the site with excellent personal touch detail. She decorated the toilet hut with scents, lots of paper towel, and a mirror, making it lady-friendly 😁😁 Provided a welcome package with a hand written location map, provided water gallon so we can wash the plates & use it for cooking. We asked for 1 unit of fire woods and she provided plenty!

The site is just a walking distance to Minden White Water Preserve where you can watch people kayaking.

The area is quiet with nice neighbors. The green grass on the ground is well-maintained. Because of the slope on the site, Vanessa put hints where we can built the tent. It's a big location for two tents, and my dog have enough room to wander around without getting to the street.

We did a car camping, so our car can enter the yard. She warned us already about two big stones on the middle, but one of our car got stuck on it and she offered help and maintain good communication.

Thank you for letting us stay at your place!

Response from Vanessa , the Host, on September 21st, 2021

Hello Eric! Thank you so much for your detailed review. We greatly appreciate reviews like yours to help other potential guests. We apologize about the stones and have taken your feedback and plan to highlight these stones for future guests so more caution can be taken and incidents avoided. You were lovely guests and it was a pleasure hosting you. We hope to see you again soon. Please follow us on instagram @beaneaththestars1986! Take care. Vanessa and Taylor

This was the most perfect magical little getaway. The hostess Venessa was lovely, I arrived to a welcome package and beautifully stacked wood. Communication and directions were so clear. The site has a great little outhouse, beautiful treed privacy and a table and fire pit. Everything you need. I took a lovely walk to a lovely lake and really enjoyed this site. I hope to return.

Vanessa and her family were great hosts! They were very accommodating and made sure we had a fun and safe stay :) Despite getting unlucky with rain, we were still able to have a lot of fun and set up a shelter using some perfectly placed trees and a tarp/rope. All in all its a great location and my friends and I would definitely like to come back again!

Quiet escape from the city

Upon arriving, we were greeted with a large private site, (that was more inclined than we anticipated), a picnic table with a thoughtful welcome basket filled with ziploc bags of goodies, a good size fire pit with chairs, garbage and recycling bins, and even the porchlight left on at the cabin so you have some light during the nights! The nights were quiet and peaceful, the stars were beautiful. The town of Minden is a 10 minute drive, 3 minute drive to the roadside public beach, with a small sandlot and clean, warm water, and just a bit further down the road is the parking lot for the miraculous white water rapids! We enjoyed having a coffee on the rocks and watching the kayakers go down the river. The host was very accomodating, ensuring we had a good stay. Will definitely be coming back! Can't wait for the cabin to be up and running :)
