Lakefront cabin in Lake of Bays with balcony
If you are seeking restitution away from the pressures of everyday living, enjoy "glamping" without the fuss. Our lakefront yurt & cabin is sure to re-connect you back to nature and explore the ultimate Algonquin experience.

This “wonderfully, amazing, peaceful & secluded natural oasis” is in the heart of one of Ontario's top tourist areas, just minutes away from internationally renowned Algonquin Provincial Park & Arrowhead Provincial Park & precisely 12 minutes from Muskoka's cultured town of Huntsville.

We offer an unlimited complimentary year-round Algonquin/Arrowhead Parking Pass!

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

The thought of sitting around a campfire under a clear sky, gazing up at the stars and listening to the sounds of the night can pacify your minds and rejuvenate your soul!

During late Spring, Summer and Fall the adjacent cabin compliments the yurt in giving you an additional screened-in porch overlooking the dock. They are both located within meters of each other and you will be assured full privacy on the 11 acres of private property.

Each booking comes complete with a two day starter supply of camp firewood: should you require more, just stock up from the wood supply on site with a volunteer donation.

Check out this website pictures of our unique outdoor washroom which our guests fondly call " Muskoka's finest privy" It even features art work!

Our guests are impressed with the vast 75 acre spring fed lake and waterfall just a few meters from the yurt. The lake is virtually undeveloped surrounded with crown land and private ownership with only one other small cottage on the entire lake. Note: the cabin portion is closed off during winter until Spring thaw.

When you arrive to this 100% Canadian made yurt /cabin will be clean & setup with basic pots and pans to cook on either the propane bbq c/w burner or wood stove.

For a perfect night's sleep, we provide a cozy deluxe queen size bed. Guests would only need to bring their own personal queen size sheet set (or sleeping bag), pillows, blanket, and towels.

This off grid package also includes: unique outdoor privy, open fire pit, starter supply of kindling /firewood, private dock, waterfall, stream, muskoka chairs, ample selection of games & reading material (for quieter moments), and a solar power pack to operate small appliances.

Seasonally, we supply a complimentary canoe from Spring into early Fall and 2 pairs of high-tech snowshoes during the snow months. NEW: We've now added two kayaks to explore Benson Lake - guests would need to bring their own lifejackets.

You can safely dive off the T shaped dock (c/w canoe). Its 36ft in length and water depth 7' at the end. The dock is conveniently located only 300ft away from the Yurt.

During the cooler seasons,you will be kept snuggly warm even during the coldest of wintery nights inside Yurt's wool lined interior and our new high-functioning wood stove. Its large 17' diameter and 4' skylight makes it the perfect size for a couples getaway!

Yurts have developed into great popularity over the past decade, where campers/cottagers can experience a high end upgrade to traditional camping without the work, lately referenced as “glamping”. The sounds of nature is purely therapeutic : )

Muskoka is just a 2 1/4 hour drive north of Toronto. We are located just minutes from historical Huntsville and 30 minutes from the gateway to Algonquin Park, 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!

Here are just a few of our many 5 star REVIEWS!

GREAT time of the grid!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! All the best, Lauren

We had a wonderful time. The winter 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 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 and look forward to booking more adventures with you, Carla

Hi Doug and Orla: Stephanie and I had an absolutely amazing time at the yurt. 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

Lovely experience...wonderful hosts....beautiful area and accommodations

5/5 Excellent

Stunning and Private!
My husband and I had a wonderful 4 nights here. There is so much to do and see on the property alone. You do not need to go anywhere. The views and the sounds are fantastic! Seeing the property is worth the stay on its own (waterfall and the lake are BEAUTIFUL!) We loved sleeping and hanging out in the Yurt. Such a romantic/cozy place. It was evident that the owners had put a lot of thought into the experience for their guests. We will 100% visit again in the future.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful, peaceful location.
Orla and Doug were lovely hosts and the property was well kept, quaint and so private. We loved every minute and it was so wonderful being able to bring our pup too. Canoeing on the lake was so peaceful and the yurt was beautiful and comfortable. A truly lovely experience.

5/5 Excellent
