About this listing
Come spend a magical evening in our Victorian cottage, nestled in the forest and overlooking a private pond. Roam our 18 acres of field and forest, then relax over dinner in the Scandinavian cook house, or light candles and fall asleep to the croaking frogs.
The sprawling property has many lovely nooks and crannies: an overgrown orchard, gorgeous old barn, gothic pet cemetery, and vegetable and herb gardens. Join us for a bonfire in the firepit, or relax and take in the view from the back porch.
Down by the cottage, you can wander over the pond's bridge to the island where our goose friend lays her eggs every year. Book a Dinner Package (below) and let us cook for you over the open flame in our new grill house.
The cottage has a luxurious four-post double bed. While there's no running water down by the pond, there is an outhouse, with a showers available in the main house of course. A generator provides electricity.
We're located one hour east of Toronto, across the road from 11,000 acres of trails in the Ganaraska Forest, 10 minutes from Mosport Speedway, and you can see the Oshawa Ski Club's hills from our back porch.
Please see our separate listing for the cozy room with queen bed inside our 1830s post and beam farmhouse.
A full organic breakfast is included with your stay. Vegetarian options are available.
Dinner Packages: please join us in our new Scandinavian grill house for a delicious dinner on the open-flame barbecue. Relax in this pine cabin in the woods while lounging on reindeer pelts. $125 covers dinner for two.
