Glamping in an A-Frame with deck and comfy bed in the heart of Prince Edward County.

YOUR SITE : This site is for those who like to rough it a bit less, sleeping in a rustic A-frame, fully sealed from the elements and with a big deck for lounging.

This cabin has a double/full sized mattress -- and you supply the linens, pillows etc.

It is located at the top of a gentle slope down to the water and offers views through the trees -- and while you can see the sunset from the deck, you might want to head down to the dock or beach to get the full effect of the awesome sunsets.

It is a few steps away from the 30 foot dock and a common area that has Muskoka chairs, hammocks and a fire pit.

This A-Frame also has a small amount of electricity to charge cell phones and illuminate lights (subject to the charge in the off-grid solar system). It's important to note that due to the design of the A-Frame side being able to open that it must be closed in rainstorms. The host is always on site to assist with this.

AMENITIES : There are 2 composting toilets, sink and propane hot water outdoor shower a short walk from the A-Frame. There is also potable water available for cooking and drinking.

Next to the A-Frame is a picnic table and a BBQ that can be rented for the duration of your stay (to pay for cleaning and propane) as well as a fire pit to enjoy during your stay.

There are 2 kayaks, paddles, adult life jackets available for FREE for you to explore the shoreline.

WHERE YOU ARE : Our property is a perfect place to embark on a cycling tour of the area and we are only a short drive from Del-Gatto, Fifth Town Artisan Cheese, Waupoos winery, Clafeld cider house, Cape vinyards, County Cider etc.

Across the road is an extensive hiking/biking trail system -- this is not part of the property but used by respectful residents and guests at their own risk.

Surrounded by breathtaking sunset views and fronting Lake Ontario this is the perfect place to enjoy nature at its fullest.

WHO ELSE IS THERE: This is our private property that we use in the summer and we host a few groups of campers per night. Each spot is totally private from the others although the space extending up from the dock to the fire pit, hammocks and Muskoka chairs is a common area enjoyed by all. The outdoor shower and composting toilets x2 are also shared by all on the property.

We look forward to hosting you.

On a vraiment aimé notre fin de semaine!
Nous avions amené notre chien et elle a adoré. On a accès au bord de l’eau et au quai, les couchés de soleil était super ☀️
Le lit était confortable et l’endroit est paisible, nous avions la vue sur les arbres et on s’endort au son de l’eau qui frappe doucement la rive☺️

Ian’s property is great! The waterfront and communal area is lovely and the facilities are accessible, clean, and convenient.
Ian was quick to respond and gave us helpful instructions to locating the campsite. He supplied us with bug spray and firewood which was really kind. Ian and is partner we’re super friendly and nice to talk to.
My partner and I stayed on the property in the A frame which was extremely comfortable and pretty spacious. We’ve never been “glamping” before and this was a great introduction to the perfect medium between regular camping and cottaging. Perfect for a couple.
We’d love to come back maybe with some friends and rent out multiple sites on the property.

We loved staying at Ian’s property! it is so beautiful and well kept and an amazing getaway. We were able to use the dock and the communal fireplace lots, as well as go kayaking. The screened in area is a nice place to read and enjoy the sound of birds and wind chimes. The bed was also super comfortable!! As well, Prince Edward County is a great place to stay as there is so much to do! There’s a cider mill, multiple wineries and an artisan cheese place all near Ian’s property. We had the best time!

Prince Edward County is such a hot destination and to find a slice of heaven on the water like this was a treat! Highly recommend for a group, couple or to go alone with your pet! Easy to access, insane sunset views, and private enough to feel like a peaceful getaway. Don't miss it!

Hot showers are so LUX, this cute addition to the space means you can feel fresh while living in the woods.Ian has set up a number of hammocks and seating around the shared spaces.This enormous hammock would be awesome to hang with friends at and play a game of cards while looking at the sunsetA welcoming place for everyone, with spots to tent camp OR sleep in the cutest open air a-frame!

The cutest cabin you’ll find!

This is the greatest little A-frame cabin, a wonderful, cute space to enjoy the outdoors. Ian didn’t miss a single detail building this treasure (that I almost don’t want to share!!). The tent attached to the cabin is closed away from the bugs but wonderfully open to the forest. It rained in the morning so all I had to do was easily pull down the windowed roof/door.
I had a perfect fireplace, with a great supply of wood, and a tented-in picnic table to protect from bugs. The cutest heated outdoor shower and outhouse are close by and prettily lit by solar lights.
Also, the best sunset views off the dock, along with paddleboards/kayak and swimming are perfect.
Ian incredibly built the property himself and put so much care and detail into making it just perfect.
I really had the best weekend and can’t wait to come back. I travel and use Hipcamp quite a-lot and is the one to beat!!! But don’t tell anyone!!!!

We had a great time on this spacious lot. The location is great, as it is mere minutes from popular wineries, and has an amazing spot to relax by the fire and waterfront! With running water and even power to charge devices, the hosts really have beautiful spot here.
I would definitely recommend for couples, and even larger groups if you book multiple spots.

Lovely getaway in the hidden corners of PEC. Ian was a generous host and the cabin was lovely. It feels like sleeping under the stars, but sheltered from bugs and rain. Such a relaxing spot right by the lake, highly recommend.

Thanks for being our first A-Frame glamper and your suggestions were wonderful. The next time you stay there will be a foot mat for your shoes and shelves for your clothes. It was wonderful to meet you and your lovely friends.
