Bear Cabin sits near the back of our 86 acre farm. It is situated on our large swim pond. There is a dock for each cabin on the pond, so you may have other guests swimming or sitting by their own dock from time to time, but you all have your own areas. The cabin has a large covered porch to sit and relax or watch the sunset. There is also a large fire pit that you can enjoy in the evenings under the stars.

The space
Our rustic cabins are 'off the grid' - features include: wind generator/solar powered and an indoor compost toilet. There is no fridge or stove and no running water, however we do supply fresh water, firewood, kitchenware, cookware, linen and propane. There is also an outdoor(manual) shower! All cooking is done outside…..relax as you barbeque on the covered cedar porch overlooking the beautiful, all-natural pond. Water can be heated on the side burner of BBQ and we do supply a coffee press too. The cabins are remotely located, very quiet and peaceful including woodstove heat, a swim pond, trout fishing, walking trails and beautiful sunsets. The cabins are new, clean and fresh. Well insulated and secure, cozy and warm. You will feel like you are many miles away from the hustle and bustle of the city - while being just 45 minutes away.

For more than 15 years, we’ve hosted a long weekend family BBQ gathering. Special children’s games such as Manhunt, Scavenger Hunts, Tag, and Hide and Seek all take place. Roasting marshmallows, campfire guitar sing-a-longs, corn roasts, horseshoe pits, beach volleyball, tetherball and other fun events took place eventually became regular routine. With most of us sleeping in tents and campers for many years, things have progressed to the point where the old cabins and shacks on the property have been renovated and upgraded. We decided to preserve the all natural, outdoor, off-the-grid and rustic type theme…and we now offer to share it with you and your friends and family. Starting with reclaimed century old barn beams, the frame structure of each cabin was created. From there the solid wood doors and picture frame windows were designed and installed to close in the four walled, simple, insulted, one room cabin design. As the years passed, the little finishing details of the cabins were developed. A compost toilet and a woodstove were added. Solar panels and a wind generator charge the battery bank and power these cabins sufficiently enough to run the few lights, power a radio and run the compost toilet. Custom barn beam type kitchen tables and benches added to the original barn board flooring complete with original type turn-of-the-century nails. The rustic century-old feel continues with no running water or showers and all cooking is done outdoors on BBQ's or over the open fire. Fresh water for drinking and washing up after supper is supplied as is propane for the barbeque and firewood. Regular swims in the pond keep guests clean and cool in the warmer months and warm cosy quilts, fluffy pillows and a beautifully glowing woodstove fire help create a one of kind peaceful and secluded retreat. We’ve had the pleasure to welcome guests from distant countries as well as some regular repeat visits from friends and family that live locally and just like to get away for a night or two. Other occasions include business retreats, team building, weddings, honey-moons, anniversaries, birthdays plus much more!
