Rustic pioneer log cabin originally built in 1852 is now a beautiful retreat to relax and unwind. Hike through the cabin's 50 acres or the Bruce Trail along the escarpment. Sit and relax on your own private flagstone patio surrounded by nature. Great amenities for families including treehouse, tire swing and full-size BBQ. Stay at Maxwell while you visit Markdale, Flesherton, Feversham, Collingwood, Thornbury or Meaford - only 30 mins away - or just relax and enjoy the gardens!

The space
The Cabin
One queen size bed downstairs and upstairs is an open loft space with another queen bed and two twin beds, with high quality bed linens and extra quilts and blankets for those cooler nights. We also provide throws for cozying up on the couch or sitting by the firepit outside. Coffee and filters are provided, as well as dishes, dishware and pots/pans for cooking. In the living room is a leather couch and two armchairs, situated in front of the glass patio doors to enjoy the scenery and the ambiance of the wood burning stove. In keeping with the rustic theme, there is an outdoor shower with hot water as well as an indoor bathroom with shower/toilet for those that prefer it. Bath towels and robes are provided for guests, as well as extra beach towels for any day trips you may take in the area. We also provide firewood for our guests’ use for the indoor wood stove as well as outdoor fire pit. We provide cooking basics as well as microwave, dishwasher, oven and stovetop, BBQ, and small fridge. There are many areas to relax outside, including rocking chairs and hammock chair on the porch, muskoka chairs on the patio and by the Sauna, as well as a hammock in the garden. For children, we have a Treehouse, slide and tire swing. **Note the outdoor shower is only available from May long weekend through to Thanksgiving.

Guests
The Cabin is a perfect romantic getaway for a couple and we have many guests who celebrate birthdays or anniversaries here. However, we do have room to comfortably accommodate up to 6 guests. In order to keep the costs affordable for couples we have a set price for groups of 2, with an additional cost of $25/person per night up to 6 guests.

Sauna
NEW! to the cabin this year is a 6-person, wood burning cedar barrel sauna exclusively for our guests to use.

Guest access
Guests have access to the entire cabin, a secluded and private patio, their own sauna and trails along the 50 acres of forest.

Please note that while it is a large area and very secluded, we live in the main house on the same property. So, you may run into us in the driveway or along the trails but for the most part our guests never see us. We are close enough to help with anything you may need during your stay, but far enough away to enjoy the beauty, peace and privacy of the forest.

Location

Maxwell, Ontario, Canada

The Maxwell Cabin is situated within the forest, on 50 acres of primarily Sugar Maple Trees. There are plenty of trails and spaces to enjoy on the property to make you feel as if you're in the middle of nowhere, yet we are conveniently located close to many local attractions. We are a short 25 drive to Blue Mountain, Collingwood, Thornbury, Creemore and approx. 40 mins away to Wasaga Beach, the longest freshwater beach in the world. Explore the many Bruce Trail hiking locations nearby, or even Eugenia Falls, Eugenia beach or Hoggs Falls.
