UNIQUE OFF THE GRID CABIN & YURT JUST 150/NGT C/W ALGONQUIN PASS & CANOE

Huntsville Cabin Rental Photos and Description

This OFF-THE-GRID rental a fully eco-sustainable nature waterfront escape

If you are seeking restitution away from the pressures of everyday living, or enjoy 'glamping' without the fuss, the yurt experience is sure to revitalize and re-connect you back to nature and rejuvenate the soul! This beautiful one of a kind OFF-THE-GRID accommodation is a fully eco-sustainable nature escape on 11 acres with water front. We recently expanded our cabin to include a large 17x17 all-natural Canadian-made heated yurt. It's directly adjacent to the cabin and includes board games, and a wide selection of reading material for the quieter moments. Accommodates just 2 adults, perfect for a romantic getaway or ideal for anyone wishing to escape the hectic pace of modern life for reflective down time. Perfect retreat for artists, song and novel writers!

Pets with up-to-date vet shots are welcome no charge, but advance notice is required.

We are just a 2 1/2 hour drive north of Toronto, right in the heart of Muskoka District with its vast 2500 square miles of stunning pine and maple forests, 1600 lakes, waterfalls, cliffs and breathtaking scenery! Its best of both worlds: This lakefront is 12 Minutes from historical Huntsville, 30 minute drive to Algonquin Park.

As an additional feature, each booking comes complete with a complimentary day pass to Algonquin Park AND/OR Arrowhead Provincial Park!

Our lakeside waterfront accommodation is fully accessible by road. Your rental includes a propane frig (located in nearby screen kitchen cabin, see pictures), BBQ, fire pit, clean drinking water, and private dock c/w canoe and standard size lifejackets.

Our lake is perfect to venture out by canoe. This one of a kind accommodation is located on vast 11 acreage of forested private property.

In addition to our onsite solar shower, you also have access to wifi just five minutes down the road – we just need advance notice if interested.

What is supplied: When you arrive, the cabin and yurt will be clean and set up with freshly laundered linens, bath towels , hand towels, wash cloths, paper towels, BBQ c/w propane and utensils, ample supply of games, firewood and starter supplied for fireplace/bon fire. Starter supply of dishwasher soap, hand soap, toilet paper, we also keep on hand a few spare beach towels

You can safely dive off the T shaped dock (c/w canoe). Its 36ft in length and 6-7ft deep at the end. The dock is conveniently located only 300ft away from the Yurt.

Yurts have developed into great popularity over past decade, where campers/cottagers can experience an high end upgrade to traditional camping without the work, lately referenced as “glamping”. We supply all the basics, queen size bed, sheets, linens, basic cooking utensils. The sounds of nature is purely therapeutic : ) Other than bringing your basic personal supplies, we do the rest!

AMAZING

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing weekend. Living in the city, we've never seen the sky so clear, the majesty of it all. It was the perfect way to get away from the business of life and just spend some time for ourselves.

Doug and Orla were amazing and very hospitable. It was a pleasure meeting them. They made sure we had everything we needed and was always available if we needed to contact them.

As a result of this time away, we have considered doing this every year.

Thank you so much for the experience!

P.S. Coming back with about 30 mosquito bites was definitely worth the experience! :)

SIMPLY AMAZING! ALREADY PLANNING A RETURN VISIT!

  • 5 of 5
Hi Susan,

Thanks for your note, and your flexibility in our date changes mid-February.

The yurt is incredible, the property is unbelievably beautiful, and our experience couldn't have been better.

Doug, Orla, thank you so much for your time and such an intimate and personal introduction to the yurt. Both myself and Spencer were a little bit timid about how we were going to manage over the weekend but you made it painless and easy. I'm going to be talking everyone's ears off about how unique (and doable!) of an experience this was. I know we'd definitely love the opportunity to try this again in the late summer/early fall.

The National Park pass was greatly appreciated -- Arrowhead was beautiful. Hopefully next time we'll seize the opportunity and see Algonquin, as well.

Thank you so much for sharing this with us!

K

PS -- I love the emphasis on local and Canada-made products!

GREAT TIME OFF-GRID

  • 5 of 5
We came here for peace, relaxation, and the great outdoors. This property met those requirements and more. The yurt was well-equipped, cozy (thanks to the woodstove) and secluded enough that you felt away from everything, yet because it was only a short hike and 10 minute drive into town it was still convenient for us to get around and explore Huntsville. Thank you to our wonderful hosts Doug and Orla, we will definitely be back and recommend it to others!

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING TIME!

  • 5 of 5
Stephanie and I had an absolutely amazing time at the yurt & cabin. We could not have imagined a better location and trip over all. As far as feedback I can honestly say I would not change a single thing. From the very first contact to the moment we drove away was perfect. Meeting Doug to show us the place was very nice and of course the property speaks for itself. We have many pictures and memories that will last a lifetime.

Over the next few weeks we are going to plan a time to visit again, this time in the warmer days of summer and hope to make this a yearly trip.
Thanks again for everything. All the best,
Randy and Stephanie

GLAMPING AT ITS BEST : )

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time "GLAMPING". The experience was truly a memorable one. It's definitely something that we can cross off our list now. We took advantage of the Arrowhead pass and explored the park. We particularly enjoyed skating through the forest.

Meeting Doug and Orla was a complete pleasure as well. They were so sweet and welcoming, it made the experience more special.

We did, however, end up leaving a day early. We were pleased with the two nights and the urge of accomplishing something new was satisfied. Doug was generous enough to extend the third night to the next time we visit at which we were pleasantly surprised by.

On our way home Emily and I discussed coming back. Hopefully in October to take advantage of the leaves changing.

Thank you for everything
Carla

FABULOUS TIME!

  • 5 of 5
Thanks Susan,

We had a fabulous time! Orla and Doug were exceptional hosts and we were so happy that they agreed to roll with the punches in spite of not knowing we were arriving.

We will definitely be adding Lakeside Yurt & Studio to our ongoing getaway plans.

Cheers,
Raye, Craig and Lola (the dog)
