The Cedars gazebo is nestled between 100 + acres of beautiful woodlands, meadows and a pristine private lake. Breathe in the fresh air, reconnect with nature and give your body and soul a well deserved break. Let the peeper frogs lull you to sleep and the distant call of the loons be your wake up call. Enjoy nature with many comforts of home plus canoes & kayak for exploring the lake

This luxurious gazebo has a beautiful and comfy bed to rest your head on after a long day of exploring the lake. It also has a secondary day bed by LED candlelit fireplace. There is a stunning china cabinet decked out with Royal Doulton fine china to eat your meals on. This is glamping stepped up a notch or two! Okay maybe a dozen. This unit also has a credenza with a pump sink for all your washing needs as well as a storage bench with coolers. No need to pack heavy, we thought of everything! Just purchase some food and ice and you're all set.

Just steps outside the gazebo you will find a propane BBQ with cooking stove and filled tanks. The ultra chic outhouse has towels, a foot pump sink and an outdoor shower area.

Explore the lake by canoe or observe the beautiful nature all around. We have deer, wild turkeys, beavers and otters, muskrats and many more woodland creatures about. See the fireflies light up the forest in July or forage for fall mushrooms in our forests. It truly is a magical place!

Although this is an off grid accommodation, each of our 3 units is equipped with a small silent power station, for guest who wish to charge their phones, laptops or small electrical devices.

A few steps away from the Gazebo you will find a small dock with a canoe, a kayak, paddles and life jackets. If you paddle out to the middle of the lake you will find a raft with 2 lounge chairs and an umbrella on it. Bring some drinks and snacks, because once there, you will not want to leave. Our curious loons will no doubt swim up close to say hello. Enjoy!

The gazebo has a propane BBQ with burner, BBQ utensils, dishes, plates, bowls, glasses, coffee cups, wine glasses, cutlery, tea kettle, French press coffee maker, and pots etc. This unit also has an acoustic guitar for fun around the campfire as well as a professional grade manual massage chair, complete with essential oil.

Even though we live on the 100 + acre property we are up the road about a kilometre away. We value and respect the privacy of our guests, so you will most likely not see us unless you require assistance from us.

Want to pack light? Get all your BBQ needs in town just 10 minutes North of us. There are 2 coolers on site for you to keep all your goods fresh.

Neighbourhood descriptionWe are in a quiet and rural setting, but also close to a few small towns. Hastings, Warkworth and Campbellford make up Trent Hills. Our closest town is Hastings ( 10 mins north ) and there you will find a grocery store for all your food needs, should you choose to not pack food. Hastings also has a LCBO. Warkworth is a quaint and artsy little town. On the short Main Street, you will find The Lucky Stars Cafe, Centre & Main Artisan Chocolate, a couple of gift shops and antiques. Campbellford is the bigger town and will have a lot more going on. If you choose to eat out there are some great choices in the area. In Hastings McGillecafey's is a pub style restaurant. Caper's in Campbellford is one of our go to places. Dorset will make you a delicious prime rib au jus, complete with roasted root vegetables. Campbellford is also home to Antonia's Bistro where Ravi makes the best butter chicken, with a side of papadums. In Warkworth there is Sper restaurant. Chef Doug Hope makes the best farm to table meals. Reservations are required. We also have the Villa Conti restaurant and vineyard 15 mins from us in Oak Heights. Tomasso and Bambi will make you feel right at home with their incredible wine assortment and authentic Italian cuisine.

Historical Significance of the property

When we first saw the property we were awestruck by its beauty and allure. We were captured by the natural springs, river and stream. It wasn't until after the deal closed that we found out that we also had a lake. What an incredible surprise and gift. It also wasn't until much later that we learned about the historical significance of this special place. It turns out that our property is part of the Percy Portage, which was an important route used for centuries by the Hurons, Iroquois and Mississaugas. It also formed the basis of the first road in the region in the early 19th century for settlers an those heading north. Samuel de Champlain used this portage in September 1615 when he travelled south with his Huron and Algonquin allies on their way to upstate New York. In the 1970's, a group of students from Trent University retraced and marked the route by adding orange metal markers to some of the trees along the way. Some of them are still present today.

My husband and I just spent 3 nights here for our honeymoon and it was simply perfect. The gazebo itself keeps you as close to nature as you can get (while still sleeping in a stunning bed). We enjoyed the isolation, walks on the trail, campfires, finding hidden creeks to sit at and hammocks in the woods for a rest. I cannot recommend this stunning destination enough!

This was such a cute getaway for my partner and I. We loved that we could get out of the city (short drive) and enjoy nature without ever needing to leave the property. We enjoyed walks to the brook, canoeing and swimming in the lake, and sitting by the campfire watching the fireflies. Not to mention the stargazing!! Just pack your bug spray! You’re still in the woods despite the ultra cute accommodations :) Sonia and her family were so welcoming and responsive.
