Beautiful relaxing cabin off grid. We loved getting away from the city. The rustic cabin had everything you need to enjoy nature and be unplugged. Adorable cabin, views of the marsh and the farm/nursery were all highlights. Hosts were very accommodating, informative and friendly…

The hosts are terrific - very quick on email, friendly, and kindly gave us a dozen eggs as we left. However, we just didn't think this cabin was good value for money. It is described as a restored/converted century cabin. To be honest, it is a shed which has been converted to a c…

My now-fiance and I arrived on a wintery Friday afternoon, with prior knowledge that this was a strictly off-the-grid experience. With signs indicating this place is certified by the government to take care of the land, we knew we were in the right place. Greeted at first by an …

Traces was a wonderful host, making us feel comfortable immediately, and Douglas was always very responsive via email. The location is absolutely beautiful and the cabin was clean and well stocked. Perfect if you are looking for a rustic, off the grid experience. Extremely privat…

The place was amazing and exactly what my partner and I were looking for. No problems, clean, cute and secluded. Perfect way to escape.

This was an amazing trip! My partner and I went for our "mini-moon" for 2 days after our wedding and it was the perfect place to unplug. The cabin itself is small and cozy with everything you need for a short trip (Cookware, BBQ, wood stove, firewood, candles, lanterns, cozy blan…

No shower and no electricity. Had these words appeared at the start of the listing, it would have saved my friend and I a lot of trouble. We were bicycling 140km from Oshawa and hoping to stay near Peterborough overnight. Foolishly, I did not book lodgings in advance of the lo…

Response from Douglas:
It is unfortunate you were unable to plan your trip in advance, however we were happy to provide you shelter at the last minute booking. I recommend the next time you decide to cycle 280 km return to bring some supplies and plan ahead. Please next time read the profile in its entirety so you know what you are getting into. Our add is very clear and our reviews reflect the experience 99% of our clients are looking for. Check in is 11am not 7:30pm. We stalled our family vacation to wait for your arrival. Much of this review you have given is embellished or not true at all and next time you stay in somebodies fully stocked off grid accommodation please do not leave cutlery and dishes outside upon your departure for the animals to browse. With that being said I wish you the best in your life and journey.
