Beautiful 270 acres of mixed forest, open field, and biodiverse marsh all for yourself! In the wild countryside just North of the Historic Town of Perth, Ontario. Includes large fire pit, cookstoves, covered deck, 10x10 wood cabin (sleeps 2-3), groomed camp/tent sites for your additional guests to pitch their tents. We only rent to one person/party at a time so the whole place is yours to share with whomever you like or just with yourself!
When you arrive, you can park at our 100-year-old farmstead and then enjoy a beautiful, 8-minute walk to your site (We are happy to bring in your supplies loaded in our mini-tractor's little, red wagon, if check-in happens while we are here). In Winter, this pathway may be a bit slushy or icy but is kept cleared of fallen snow.
You will sleep in a double sized bed on a firm wooden frame. The mattress is a 14", deep pillow-top, Sealy with a box-spring. Both mattresses are securely wrapped in full mattress covers and it is topped with a thick mattress pad for maximum coziness. Linen or fleece sheets are available and the bed has a large, warm hypoallergenic duvet, (duvet cover also available in linen or fleece), with three pillows of various firmness.
The room contains two cozy chairs, one of which folds out into a lounge chair or even a bed.
Until we get an outhouse constructed, guests will be using a tastefully disguised luggable loo, in a full height, tent-loo, a very short dash from the cabin door.
There isn't running water in the cabin but we are happy to provide you as much tasty well water that you would like, for cooking/drinking/cleaning. We are ready to top up your water supply daily, as you need it. Propane hot water heater available. No shower space in the winter but sponge/cloth bathing possible inside the cabin.
There are dishes, pots and pans, and other basic food-prep type equipment for your use. There is an area inside to prepare food that doesn't need cooking or to make ready food that is going to be cooked outside on our grill or propane stove. A cooler is available to store any perishable food you may have. In most cases, the cooler can be kept at a proper temperature by moving it in and out of the deep freeze that is the Canadian outdoors. Or, you can bring ice if you prefer.
Fully charged Lithium Ion Energizer power station available that is trickle charged on sunny days by a solar panel. This pack is capable of powering most of the devices that you would bring on your trip such as laptops, iPads, or Bluetooth speakers. The power should last with moderate use for a couple of days but we are happy to pick it up daily to recharge if you require that. The cabin itself has solar lighting for the evenings and a bright light that you can plug into the power station, when needed.
For extra guests beyond the initial 2, those guests will have to bring their own tents and beds/bedding and camp nearby.
There is a large, 12x16 floating deck, directly outside the cabin. Seating and a cooking area is provided. The deck and the area near the cabin and fire pit is mowed and kept clear of snow and you will find a nice fire pit for outdoor warmth. The pit is equipped with equipment for you to do open fire cooking. Fire wood is 10$ a wheelbarrow full but your first load is included in the cost of your stay.
The land is a rugged mix of Canadian Shield, pocket swamps, forest and old fields slowly returning to the wild. There are some basic paths but you are also welcome to strike out on your own and enjoy the land.
Additional guests who may be using tents to join you on your stay are able to pick close by, mowed clearings, to set up camp or they can move further into the woods and find a more secluded campsite.
In Winter, you will find your cabin already warmed up when you arrive and you will keep it warm yourself by tending a beautiful, mini, glass-doored, woodstove. Many an hour can be spent just gazing into a warm fire.
