About this listing
Relive Retreat is a 700 sq ft, open concept, cabin with chalet ceiling, full-length windows, natural spring water, private hot tub, private pool, fireplace, BBQ, breathtaking views. Perfect for taking time out to rejuvenate and reconnect with nature.
The cabin has 1 bedroom with a queen bed and a double fold out couch, which can comfortably sleep 4 people. We are dog friendly so please feel free to bring your furry friend. We have 2 pups who live with us on the property (a big goldendoodle and a border collie).
Cabin comes equipped with a fireplace and some firewood for any cool nights, full kitchen with additional coffee maker, soda stream, toaster, veggie/rice steamer and more. There is a natural spring on the property, which the water is pumped from. It is then UV filtered making every tap drinkable.
Cabin runs on septic, fresh spring water (filtered), wood fireplace, as well as a propane heater to create an almost off-grid experience. We recycle, compost and conserve energy as much as possible, promoting a sustainable living experience.
Wrap around deck on south and east sides makes for perfect outdoor enjoyment. Hot tub sits flush with the east deck with fantastic views across the valley. The 7 person hot tub has over 40 jets. Perfect for end of day after hiking with over 70 acres of property to explore. And in the summer months we have a 25' round pool to enjoy as well.
Our property is one of a kind. On a clear morning from the living room you will witness some spectacular sunrises. In the evening you can enjoy the ambiance of the sun setting or head up the road a few minutes to watch the sunset completely. The cabin sits at the top of a hill, up the driveway from our primary residence (another small cabin). The hill is perfect for keeping the mosquitos away with a continuous breeze. There are 3 reforested areas, lots of old forest, a meandering meadow, hills, wetlands, apple trees, the Saugeen River, streams and a natural spring. Wildlife includes tons of deer, rabbit, birds, wild turkeys and the occasional spotting (or hear them howl) of coyotes and wolf. The valley of the property echoes so they do sound close sometimes even though they are a distance away.
We have two pups that live on the property with us. They are just over a year old now. One is a big golden doodle that will fall in love with you if you have treats. He is a sweetheart. The other is a border collie, super smart. Be warned, if you start to play frisbee or ball with her she will not let you stop ;-)
Guest have access to the upper Cabin, 72 acres of land to hike, hot tub, bbq, firewood and more. Summer months (mid-May to mid-September) the pool will be open which is located beside the cabin.
Interaction with Guests
We interact with the guests only as needed, respecting privacy. The pups are known to wonder up and say hello occasionally too. We live and work remotely on the property. We have two pups who just turned one and are active on the 3 acres of developed land, though we respect privacy and quietness and will keep pups at bay if needed :-)
We are located in Priceville, Ontario, one of the highest points in Ontario, part of the Grey Highlands. We are 10min west of historic and artful Flesherton off Grey Rd 4. Flesherton boasts tons of unique amenities such as the Leslieville Cheese Market, delicious bakery, Peasmarsh Farms for fantastic meat options and local chef! Bicycle Cafe and Highland Grounds serve up incredible lattes and cappuccino. Gourmet Pizza is fantastic as well. Art galleries, yoga studio and more. An additional 5min east of Flesherton is the stunning Hoggs Falls, which sits on the Bruce Trail. Easy to access and worth the visit. In the summer you can scale down and swim in the falls! Another 5min away is Eugenia Falls and Eugenia Lake. 10min west of us is Durham, which has beautiful McGowan Falls with lots of walking trails, Garafraxa coffee theater and the Durham Art Gallery. Within 45min drive are spectacular destinations such as Collingwood/Blue Mountain, Talisman, Beaver Valley, Standing Rock, Bruce Peninsula, many waterfalls and around 1hr to Sauble Beach for incredible sunsets and day trips to the beach. There are many, many things to do in the area. Winnie Acres Horseback Riding is right around the corner from us and Irish Lake up the road. BruceTrail for tons of hiking and biking. Many options for food, art, entertainment and outdoor recreation in the area.
When it comes to getting around there is no transit. This is a rural experience and will require a car to get there and back.
Other Things to Note
All water comes from a natural spring on the property and is also UV filtered! So you can drink the best water from any tap.
Also, long weekends we require minimum 3-night rental.
We are on a septic so please do follow use in cabin write-up. Please keep the bromide holder in the hot tub and do not add any chemicals. No smoking allowed in the cabin and please do not flick butts onto the ground. And we ask that you leave the cabin in the same condition you find it on your arrival. Thank you :-)
