A beautiful country loft perfect for an intimate & peaceful getaway. This open concept space features a private ensuite bathroom with an extra large clawfoot tub, breakfast nook, mini kitchenette, a comfortable queen bed and all natural linens.
The Sunrise Loft is an uplifting, thoughtful & quiet space. There are no other rooms located on this level of the house so it is a perfect place to read, journal & reconnect. It features earth friendly clay walls, bamboo & cork floors and all natural bedding. Furnished with a queen sized bed, bistro set, lounge chairs & mini kitchenette. Other features include a private balcony, a private ensuite bathroom and a beautifully refinnished clawfoot tub with a shower.
During your stay you are welcome to make use of the fire place and sitting room on the main level. The living room on the main level is a shared space in the day time but it is yours to enjoy in the evening (we have our own family room in our wing of the house and we keep to ourselves). You are welcome to peruse our bookshelf and our collection of magazines & board games located on the main level.
Interaction with Guests
The loft is private and self contained. When you arrive you can expect to find a welcome note and a key waiting for you. We give our guests plenty of space and privacy and we are reachable by cell phone through the course of your stay.
Batteaux is a quiet hamlet less than 10 minutes away from the town of Collingwood. It is the kind of place where the stars shine a little brighter and you can hear the sounds of crickets at night ( & the occasional rooster in the morning). An 8 km nature trail passes directly beside our property and leads to downtown Collingwood. This crushed stone trail is flat and ideal for cycling, walking, cross-country skiing or snow-shoeing.
Bring your bikes, a good book and your favourite bubble bath and we'll take care of the rest!
Our semi-rural location requires a car or a good bike to get around. There is a dependable local taxi service and a little local pub within walking distance (less than 4km away). We are located less than a 10 minute drive from Collingwood and 20 min from Creemore & Blue Mountain village.
Other Things to Note
This is the ideal place for people who love to travel off the beaten path. Our nightly rate includes a vegetarin breakfast basket filled with locally roasted coffee, organic tea, local honey, milk, jams, farm fresh eggs, granola, yogurt, & locally baked bread. We happily accommodate gluten free and vegan diets.
We welcome families but we do not accommodate pets. Check in time is 4pm (or any time after) and check out time is 11am on the day you leave. We offer a non-smoking and chemical scent-free home for the comfort & well-being of our guests.
We had a lovely one night stay at Givingtree. The view from the loft was stunning and the room itself set the tone for a relaxing getaway.The breakfast was full of high quality goodies such as Harmony Organic milk. We would definitely return to Givingtree and recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet retreat.
As soon as we arrived, Andy came out and made us feel very welcomed. The loft was cozy, clean, and looked even better in person. The vegan breakfast included an assortment of local goods which we absolutely enjoyed. We wished that we booked a longer stay and would not hesitate to stay at the Givingtree B&B again!
Chai was an amazing host and made you feel extremely welcome in her beautiful home. She was helpful providing tourist information that helped to make our vacation that much better. The loft is exactly as displayed, I will recommend it to all of my family and friends if they are to visit Collingwood in the future. On top of the great accommodation you are provided an awesome breakfast that allows you to spend more time seeing the sites instead of searching for breakfast. This location would be ideal for a visit to scandinave spa, and fits the theme of a nice relaxing vacation. Will definitely return in the future when I visit Collingwood again. Thanks again Chai.
We were very happy to experience this lovely loft. The location was perfect. Not too far from all the area has to offer. It was a serene, cozy, private place for us to unwind and relax at the end of the day. We loved all the natural products provided and the organic breakfast was well thought out with all local and tasty fare. We were sorry to have missed meeting both Chai and Andy because they were away and we got back late the 2nd night. However Andy was there to say good-bye and was super friendly. We highly recommend staying here it is definitely a little gem!
My girlfriend and I had a great stay with Chai and Andy at the Givingtree Loft this winter. The space was beautiful and clean, and felt very much like a home away from home during our trip. We had a delicious breakfast in the morning, and there were plenty of healthy treats and fresh fruit to munch on. Finally, the location is perfect for any activities in Collingwood. We'd highly recommend staying here.
We had a fantastic time recovering from our wedding at Givingtree. The loft was cozy, the food was so delicious, and Chai was really helpful and hospitable, even brining our breakfast up to our room for us so that we could eat on our balcony overlooking the garden. There's a nice bike trail that runs right next to the b and b, so it was easy to ride into town to get dinner. I would totally recommend this to anyone!
The Givingtree is a perfect getaway. The grounds are beautiful, the space is impeccably decorated, the food is delicious and bountiful, and the hosts - Chai and Andy, as wella s Wendy and John - were friendly, lovely, and helpful. It was the perfect retreat and we would go back there in a heartbeat. Thanks so Much!

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.
We love living in Collingwood and we can point you in the direction of our favourite local swimming holes, hiking trails and other hidden local gems. By choosing to stay at Givingtree you can look forward to a relaxing stay and a delicious organic breakfast each morning.
We look forward to the pleasure of hosting you!
