We loved the cabin stay, it was very quiet, peaceful, and very close to hiking spots and the river. We explored the town and also the hiking trails were very unique. The cabin itself was very comfortable and clean. My kid loved the disney collections here and it was so much fun to watch them through VCR. Will definitely try to plan again some other time.

This rustic cabin was a great place to stay for our group of 5 friends. The fire was a cozy way to keep extra warm in the cold weather. We explored the nearby Minden Whitewater Preserve, which was super pretty! Vanessa was a very responsive host. I would definitely recommend this cabin for anyone looking for a simple, cozy getaway not too far from the city.

A lil slice of paradise

What a slice of paradise! Vanessa's cabin was exactly what I was looking for in a surprise birthday gift for my fiance.
Blast from the past and trips down memory lane, it felt as if we've been coming to the cabin for decades. We had one cold night at minus 30 temps, but the woodstove fire and pull-out cot in the living room made for one cozy and memorable night. I would sleep in that cabin again and again... We felt so safe and warm the entire time we spent there. Vanessa is very wise to recommend you pack slippers, the floor was the only part that felt cold.
Just due to the extreme cold we didn't do it much exploring of the area, but Vanessa has some maps and suggestions on what to see and do in the area. Not too far from necessities like a Valu Mart or Canadian Tire.

Don't forget to bring the Uno, some tunes, and leave the electronics and technology at the door and enjoy the peace and quiet the area brings.
My fiance and I created wonderful new memories here, and we cannot wait to come back in the summer time.

Vanessa's hosting is top notch! Very responsive, accommodating, and generous. The cabin is well stocked for your needs, lots of bedding, kitchen items, outhouse items, water for dishes and drinking. From booking, check in, to check out was so incredibly seamless and easy.
Also, so very clean and tidy! Like really clean and tidy.

Thank you again for opening up your cabin to others, what a memorable Birthday gift this was.

This cabin was a perfect cozy getaway for our long weekend out of the city. We brought our baby and two pets. The fire was very warm and the snow was beautiful. Vanessa was super accommodating and even provided a list of several local vegan food options.

We had an absolutely great time at Vanessa's cabin. The place was clean and cozy, and Vanesa has meticulously thought of every need for her guest for our maximum comfort. The area is so beautiful and serene - definitely tells you that you do not have to drive crazy amount of hours away from the city for a peaceful escape. Vanessa's place hits the perfect location of remote enough for peace and quiet - but at the same time a 10 minute drive away from all your necessities (grocery, restaurants, lcbo, even a bank!)

A greatly appreciated plus is how Vanessa chose to keep her VCR player and the accompanying TV in the listing. When everything is settled for the night, we recommend putting all the technologies away, put the VHS in and you are instantly transported to the 90's!! It was the perfect way to round up a nice and relaxing day.

Rustic cozy cabin is definitely the perfect description for this listing.The fall colours around this town is absolutely breathtaking at this time of the year(we visited in October)Getting ready for the night! (putting in the VHS was an unexpectedly exciting event)Playing cards in bunks!
