Su questo annuncio

Celebrate Canada's 150th anniversary! A Parks Canada pass is provided for free admission to Bruce Peninsula National Park. Thoreau's Eco-Cabin is a 12 foot by 12 foot (144 square feet) cabin with electricity and a real outhouse but no running water. The cabin is situated on a wooded lot 20 minutes south-west from Lion's Head. Experienced hikers and campers will appreciate its comforts. Bienvenue, je peux parler quelques francais

Live your beliefs... Henry David Thoreau


Thoreau's is located about a 55-minute drive to Bruce Peninsula National Park. This tiny cabin is perfect for experienced outdoor enthusiasts who embrace nature but also enjoy the comforts of electricity. There is no running water. Non-potable water will be provided at the back of the cabin for washing up, dish washing, putting out the campfires, etc.

Note: in the summer months, enjoy the "shower in a tree" with a solar heated shower bag. Privacy curtains are provided.

Guests are required to bring their drinking water, sleeping bag (or blankets) pillow and towel. Maximum two people.

The cabin features a coffee maker, filters, small fridge with freezer, microwave, two-element hotplate, toaster, kettle, heater, fan, radio/CD player, table, two chairs, dishes, pots, cutlery, dish towels, dish soap, etc. A futon sofa quickly transforms into a double bed.

When nature calls, a brightly-painted outhouse is steps away. There will be an odour as I use Sep-tonic to break down waste.

A fire pit with wood is provided along with two campfire chairs. A small picnic table completes the "back to nature" experience!

Safety features include a photoelectric smoke alarm, fire extinguisher, first aid kit, flashlight and a whistle. The closest hospital is located in Lion's Head, a 20-minute drive away. Watch for roots, rocks and stumps when walking on the property.

Free wifi is just down the road at "Katemma's," cafe, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursdays to Mondays. Reservations are required for their special Friday and Sunday night dinners. For quick-needed staples, By the Bay General Store in Pike Bay is also a few minutes away open seven days a week.

"The Rocks" are spectacular limestone formations about a 15 minute walk away. They are located off Julian Drive. You can swim here.

In Lion's Head, hot showers are available (seasonally) at the Marina for $5. Lion's Head also has a nice small beach. Enjoy the spectacular views. Non-potable water is free at the Lion's Head Beach Park Campground. Potable water is free at the nearby Beach Pavilion. Excellent free wifi is provided at the Lion's Head Library. Even if the library is closed, you can sit outside and enjoy the bandwidth. The Bruce Trail is accessible from two access points in Lion's Head. Parking is provided.

I live an hour away but will have everything ready for your stay. Flexible check-in allows for your traveling convenience, you can arrive at any time. Instructions regarding location of key, other information, etc. will be provided ahead of time.

The Bruce Peninsula National Park (near Tobermory) will be free to all visitors in 2017. Expect to see many people on all the hiking trails. A Parks Canada pass will be provided for your free admission into the Park, but please ensure you leave the Pass in the cabin before you depart for the next guest to enjoy.

Welcome and I hope you enjoy your stay!

This cozy cabin is close to an amazing limestone beach on Lake Huron and one can easily drive to hiking trails, restaurants and other tourist/travel destinations anywhere along the Peninsula.

The Eco-Cabin was just as described. We had a great experience and would stay here again if visiting the area!

It was quaint and cozy. It had everything you needed for a comfortable stay in a cottage setting. It was simple and clean, with a lot of great hiking destinations not too far away, which is what we we're looking for. Thanks Judi!

Lovely little cabin in the woods. Conveniently located near Sauble Beach, Lions Head, and Tobermory. Judi was so sweet and left my partner and I a small (and delicious) gift of local apple cider and popcorn. My partner is from New Zealand so I was very excited to show him Canadian camp life, and he was impressed. I would certainly come back again :)

Heerlijke plek met mooie rustie omgeving. Ook een kleine wandeling mogelijk naar strand/rots. Nette cabin met outhouse welke netjes is maar goed om er wel bewust voor te kiezen. Lions Head om de hoek voor pracht (!) wandeling (stukje Bruce Trail) net als Flower Potisland. Heerlijke ervaring en aanrader.
