This mid century modern country home is on 6 acres of mature cedar forest, in a clearing with a deep picturesque pond , a 2 bedroom main house and a more rustic separate (summer only) sleeping bunkie. The perfect spot for a creative project retreat, hiking enthusiasts or for anyone wanting a getaway a short drive from Toronto (100km- on average from door to door). Hiking the Bruce Trail, fishing, lazing by the pond, and nights by the fire- indoor or out. Frog choir and epic night skies included!

Lo spazio
The house is wood, window and colourful textiles. An unexpected mid-century modern retreat in the middle of the Ontario woodlands. The space is clear, uncluttered, stocked with books and games, firewood for the outdoor hand-built stone oven or the indoor wood stove, a cedar sauna (we suggest a sauna> roll in the snow> sauna cycle!) and 3 living rooms for naps or reading.
The custom kitchen is stocked with any and everything you need to cook or bake (oils, vinegars, spices, baking supplies- use anything you need and just let us know if something runs out so we can replace it) and a handmade wood table from fallen Toronto storm oaks. The piano room is perfect for retreat projects... plenty of writers and musicians and filmmakers have used the space for personal projects. The spareness of the space in balance with the linen sheets and fluffy duvets makes for a perfect balance of clarity of mind and comfort of body.

NOTE> any guests over 4 people are $25/ person. The additional sleeping is as follows.... The 3rd bedroom is a sleeping bunkie and will only be available in the summer and not unless arranged ahead of time. It is a clean, white space with a mirror, double bed, linen bedding and large picture window with curtains. It is hot in the humidity of the summer, and an oscillating fan is provided. This is a more rustic experience, not a "house" experience! It'll only be available in the summer months, and the shoulder seasons (with lots of extra wool blankets, which will be provided).

In the winter the extra 2 people can use one of many single couches, or a (not very comfy) double pullout couch can be made up in the living room. There are duvets and pillows for these couches.

Again, it’s $25/person per night over the first 4 people. You may request for extra people/ larger families and we will approve on a case-by-case basis.

In the house there is a sectional couch that makes 2 single beds. Another sectional in front of the fireplace that can sleep another 2. You’re welcome to bring an air mattress if you want to create another bed on the floor of the piano room. There are duvets or sleeping bags for all supplementary beds.

SAFETY NOTE- the main house has many railings above an open living space, which may prove a challenge with toddlers.

Accesso per gli ospiti
The entire house and property. Smoking only outdoors- there is an ashtray in the screen porch, but please make sure sliding doors are closed to the kitchen if smoking in the porch.

There is an airstream trailer on the driveway and a guest house next to the pond that are usually empty (it's our and a couple of good friends' periodic retreat) -not rented out, but now and then we or our friends may be there. We will leave you to enjoy your stay or point you in the direction of the trailheads if you like, but be aware it's possible you could cross paths with us. We're friendly!

Altre cose da tenere a mente
********As noted, this may not be the best choice for toddlers. The house is built into a hill and there are railings upstairs over the lower living space, with couches abutting them. It would be very easy for a small child to climb up and over without constant supervision.********

A NOTE ON INTERNET AND CELL PHONES>>

Please consider this is Data Detox.

*********We can *********
***********NOT ***********
********guarantee ********
******internet service *****

Bell seems to be the most reliable cell provider in the area. Other cell companies get spotty service at the house and there is no land line. People usually just drive up the hill 2 mins to retrieve texts or make calls, if they are not on Bell.

Our internet is satellite, quite slow and often NOT WORKING. If the internet IS working (we can't guarantee it will be, as the monthly max is very easily hit and previous guests may have maxed it out, making it unavailable until the next billing period).... no streaming of movies, uploading or downloading of photos or videos would be possible, but the DVD closet is stocked with everything from the Muppets to Ingmar Bergman to John Candy to Jodorowsky.

Shelburne, Ontario, Canada

The property is in Mulmer- a Unesco World Biosphere Reserve! The land is protected from development so what you experience driving in are rolling hills dotted with farms and forest. The property is next to the Pine River Fishing Reserve and within a 15 minute walk (or 2 minute drive) to trailheads leading you onto the Bruce Trail... a 900km trail system snaking through the countryside of Ontario. Many loops and different trailheads are within a 5 min drive as well. Orangeville and Shelburne are 20 and 10 mins away and have everything you need for LCBO or groceries, Creemore is a 20 minute drive further north and has a heritage main street with cute shops and pubs. Our own local farm to table restaurant can't be beat- Terra Nova Pub, and is 7 km down the road. Many cyclists use the area to train its rolling hills, and the pub (and attached ice cream parlour) is an oasis in the middle of the countryside. Mono Cliffs Inn is 20 mins south and tucked in Mono Provincial Park, a great spot for a hike and farm to table lunch. Mostly we find that if you come stocked with food and wine, besides hikes, there's not much reason to leave the property. Swimming can't be beat in the pond and the house stays perfectly cool in the heat of the summer. For winter visitors, we are 15 mins from Mansfield Ski Club and cross country ski center, and there are snowshoes in the front closet.
