We wanted a relaxing getaway from a busy city life and Judi's place was great for it. Simple but cozy, plus the area of Bruce Peninsula was really beautiful!

Judi's cottage is a lovely little place. I used it for a short getaway- I was hiking a lot during the day and reading in the evening. I was looking for solitude and quiet, and it was perfect for this. It's very close to Bruce Trail access points which is great. Judi left a card and chocolate and checked in by text- overall a lovely balance of a warm and caring host, without being more involved than I needed. I get the sense that she truly cares about her guests. The futon is quite comfortable and the space is cozy and welcoming. If you're looking for a quiet, inexpensive retreat for 1 or 2 people, and want something simple, welcoming, and close to nature, I would highly recommend this Airbnb. If you're looking for a cottage on the water or want more space to spread out in, you may want to look elsewhere. This was absolutely perfect for what I wanted :) Thanks Judi- I'll definitely be back at some point!

This was my second time visiting Thoreau's cabin and we had a lovely time enjoying the Bruce in the fall. Judi was an attentive host and made the entire stay seamless. We were greeted with a card and bottle of wine at our arrival and the cabin was comfortable, clean and close to amazing hiking trails. We are already looking forward to the next visit.
