About this listing
The perfect getaway for people who love to travel off the beaten path. Enjoy relaxing stay in a cozy solar powered cabin located just minutes away from Collingwood, Creemore and the Blue Mountains. Couples, families & groups of up to 4 welcome.
The karma cabin is surrounded by beautiful organic gardens and is furnished with a queen sized bed, small country kitchen, woodstove, private bathroom and an antique clawfoot tub. Thoughtful touches include a soft bamboo mattress topper, Canadian made alpaca wool pillows & duvets, a reading library, board games and a selection of organic teas.
The cabin is located directly behind the main house. When you arrive you can expect to find a welcome note and a key waiting for you. You are welcome to use the fireplace in the cabin and complimentary firewood is located on the wrap around porch. There is also a communal BBQ on the porch that you are welcome to use during your stay.
Interaction with Guests
The cabin is private and self contained. We give our guests plenty of space and privacy. We understand that you are here to reconnect and to enjoy some quality time with your journal and a good book. We are reachable by cell phone/text through the course of your stay.
Batteaux is a quiet hamlet located 10 minutes away from Collingwood and 20 minutes away from Creemore. It is the kind of place where the stars shine a little brighter and you'll hear the sounds of crickets at night. An 8km nature trail passes directly beside our property and leads to downtown Collingwood. The trail is flat and ideal for cycling, walking, cross-country skiing or snow-shoeing.
Our semi-rural location requires a car or a good bike to get around. There is a dependable local taxi company that services our area and a little local pub within walking distance (less than 4km away).
Other Things to Note
The cabin kitchen is stocked with dishware and basic cooking utensils (pots, pans,kettle etc). All linens, pillows and towels are provided. Complimentary fair trade & organic coffee and tea are included in your stay. We offer a list of local markets and shops that feature local in season foods so you can prepare amazing meals during your stay.
This is a non-smoking property. Be mindful of the energy consumption and make use of our compost and recycling systems. We welcome families but do not accommodate pets. We can recommend cage-free pet accommodations by request.
There's something special about this spot. The physical location is gorgeous, exactly as portrayed in the photos, but there is just so much heart poured into the cabin that it's impossible not to feel that too. Chai and Andy were wonderful hosts - they responded almost immediately to our e-mail, checked in on us, but also gave us the space and privacy that was needed. Definitely recommend!
The Karma Cabin came exactly as advertised and is a great spot for up to 4 adults. It was clean and Chai & Andy have some really nice touches in there - from notes with restaurant recommendations to games, books, etc. There was lots of firewood for us, clean towels and sheets and all the basics you need for a great stay.
Chai and Andy were fantastic! From greeting us at the door, to bringing an extra table leaf and chair for our guests, we couldn't have asked for better hosts. The Karma Cabin is charming, warm and so comfortable. The amenities are all of excellent quality-- from the washing supplies, to the cozy bedding, to the (deservedly praised) well-stocked breakfast basket. It was the perfect spot for my 40th birthday retreat. Thanks!
Andy and Chai were the perfect hosts and the cabin was so beautiful. It was the most best winter getaway--not to be missed! I can't say enough good things about them and the place.
We had a wonderful stay. The space is absolutely beautiful and relaxing. It was spacious enough to accommodate 6 adults. The hosts were helpful and respected our privacy. Would definitely recommend and visit back the Karma Cabin.
Chai and Andy were great hosts. The cabin was really cozy and earthy. We really enjoyed our time there. There were many organic goodies from our hosts - they went the extra mile. We loved the fire and tub too. The hiking trail right out their door was excellent - we went for runs and walks along it. It was a great getaway from the city.
Had such a fantastic time staying in the Karma Cabin. Chai and Andy were great at corresponding prior to our arrival aswell as during our stay, they are extremely helpful and kind hosts. The decorative details in the cabin were so darn cute. Loved the bath, fireplace, and nearby nature trail... it was the perfect setting to relax and rejuvenate. The morning breakfasts were absolutely amazing! Would definitely love to go back again and would without a doubt recommend this gem to anyone wanting a relaxing getaway.

About the Host, Chai & Andy
We are friendly & experienced hosts who love yoga and vegetarian cuisine. We love exploring small towns and wandering around local markets gathering good food. We are small-scale organic growers and we grow several varieties of microgreens that we supply to local restaurants and markets. We spend our weekends hiking in the forest, eating outdoors, and playing with our son.
