For more than 10 years, we’ve hosted a long weekend family BBQ gathering. Special children’s games such as Manhunt, Scavenger Hunts, Tag, and Hide and Seek all take place. Roasting marshmallows, campfire guitar sing-a-longs, corn roasts, horseshoe pits, beach volleyball, tetherball and other fun events took place eventually became regular routine. With most of us sleeping in tents and campers for many years, things have progressed to the point where the old cabins and shacks on the property have been renovated and upgraded. We decided to preserve the all natural, outdoor, off-the-grid and rustic type theme…and we now offer to share it with you and your friends and family. Starting with reclaimed century old barn beams, the frame structure of each cabin was created. From there the solid wood doors and picture frame windows were designed and installed to close in the four walled, simple, insulted, one room cabin design. As the years passed, the little finishing details of the cabins were developed. A compost toilet and a woodstove were added. Solar panels and a wind generator charge the battery bank and power these cabins sufficiently enough to runs the few lights, power a radio and run the compost toilet. Custom barn beam type kitchen tables and benches added to the original barn board flooring complete with original type turn-of-the-century nails. The rustic century-old feel continues with no running water or showers and all cooking is done outdoors on barbeques or over the open fire. Fresh water for drinking and washing up after supper is supplied as is propane for the barbeque and firewood. Regular swims in the pond keeps guests clean and cool in the warmer months and warm cosy quilts, fluffy pillows and a beautifully glowing woodstove fire help create a one of kind peaceful and secluded retreat. We’ve had the pleasure to welcome guests from distant countries as well as some regular repeat visits from friends and family that live locally and just like to get away for a night or two. Other occasions include business retreats, team building, weddings, honey-moons, anniversaries, birthdays plus much more!
