Tiny rustic cabin overlooking pond, with waterfall. Tiny wood stove for winter and chilly nights. Outhouse + indoor bucket toilet for late night visits. Gravity fed rainwater for washing. Queen sized bed with room for cot (children welcome!) Outdoor rainwater shower. The perfect place to unwind from a busy life. 6.5 acres of rugged forest on the Little Bald Lake channel. Stroll through the forest, listen to the waterfall, sit on the private beach, cook over the fire, and enjoy the serenity.

El lugar

The cabin is very simple but provides all the necessities. All bedding, towels, dishes, pots, pans and pantry basics (flour sugar, coffee, tea, etc). Fridge with freezer, microwave, induction burner, BBQ, campstove, grill for fire pit. Lots of books, puzzles and games to keep busy during inclement weather plus a small satellite TV. The cabin sleeps two, however if you have a small child there is room for a cot (supplied) or a portable crib. The outhouse is about 40 feet from the cabin, however, for those not wanting to brave a chilly 3:00 a.m. bathroom visit, the cabin has a small washroom with a bucket toilet which can then be emptied in the morning.

A tiny woodstove heats the cabin and your water. We provide wood for this stove as it needs to be specially cut to 6" lengths. A private outdoor firepit is just outside the cabin. Plenty of firewood for gathering but you may want to pick up some dry starter wood at a gas station on your way.

We live in an ecologically sensitive area called "The Land Between",
an area of transition between the Canadian Shield and the St. Lawrence Lowlands. The property is largely untouched, so don't be surprised if you catch a glimpse of wildlife. Spotted here have been; deer, bear, raccoon, porcupine, fox, mink, marten, turkeys, turtles, snakes and blue spotted salamander. A small creek cuts through the property, which can be accessed by a trail, and where Muskie have been seen spawning in the spring. From the cabin you can just see the lake in the distance, as we are separated from the lake by a wet meadow providing the ultimate in privacy. The wet meadow is a maze of cattails full of blackbirds and blue herons. It`s a wonder to kayak through.

In Winter, try ice fishing, skating, or snow shoeing, weather permitting. Snowmobile trails close by or sled on the lake. Spring is the time for Trilliums, fiddle heads, wild leeks, maple syrup boiling and if you're lucky you may catch a glimpse of the muskie. In summer, swim in the spring fed pond; cold, but refreshing. Small beach provides access to the channel. Summers are shady and cool with little need for air conditioning. Fall colors are spectacular.

The address is 200 Northern Avenue, Trent Lakes, Ontario. Some GPS receivers will not find this address as the township recently changed their name. If this happens, try 200 Northern Avenue, Bobcaygeon, Ontario.

DIRECTIONS: From the 401 take the 115 to Lindsay and County Road 36 to Bobcaygeon. Halfway between Bobcaygeon and Buckhorn on County Rd 36 turn south onto Edwina Drive then East (left) on Northern to 200. Parking spot is just before the bunkie on the left.

Disponible para huéspedes

Guests have access to a small private beach and a dock suitable for docking and launching a small boat. Snowmobile trailer parking on site. Public boat launch or paid boat launch both 1/2 km away. Feel free to roam the property.

Atención a los huéspedes

Our home is about 200 feet from the cabin. While we will respect your privacy, we're close by if you need us. We have two cats that will likely remain hidden, and a dog that may visit, especially if you throw a ball :-)

This place is basically a small slice of paradise. Nothing fancy, but beautiful surroundings and everything you need for a relaxing weekend away from it all. The pond and the natural beauty of the land itself is the real highlight, but the cabin is cute and cozy, with a great screened in porch and a comfortable bed. There is a fire pit looking over the pond and waterfall where we enjoyed our evenings looking up at the stars (wow!) We brought our puppy Ruby and she had a great time swimming in the channel and the pond, and running around with Tessa, the host pup. Noreen and Randy were great hosts, very friendly and easy to chat with, but allowed us privacy too. We will be back.

This is truly a great place to stay! The cabin is cozy, clean and outfitted with everything you need, from kitchen utensils to towels. The nights were a bit cold for us, and we had the option of using the wood stove or the electric heater, both of which worked well. The property is magical - a beautiful pond and waterfall, trails through the woods, and access to the lake. Noreen and Randy were attentive and friendly hosts, quickly responding to messages and checking on us while there. I'd highly recommend staying with them!

My partner and I spent a wonderful weekend at this cabin. The hosts were very nice and accommodating. They let us use their canoe which was awesome! The cabin is beside some little waterfalls which is a great sound. The main house where the hosts live isn't too far away from the cabin (you won't be in total isolation) but yet you still feel like you get good privacy. Cute little towns nearby - loved our time there!

I can't say enough nice things about Noreen, Randy and their property. Noreen and Randy were friendly, considerate and accommodating. Their place was gorgeous, relaxing and convenient. We loved the swimming hole, the private beach, playing with their dog, Tessa, and so much more. Can't wait to go back again :)

We had a lovely stay at Noreen and Randy's cozy cabin in the woods. They went out of their way to ensure our stay was as comfortable as possible. The cabin is close to Bobcaygeon, if you forget any supplies or if you want to visit the local farmers market or a restaurant, yet it is on a quiet lake that lends itself to being submerged in nature. We enjoyed the fireplace, and felt very much at home. Would recommend this cabin to anyone looking to getaway from the city and reconnect with nature. Noreen and Randy, thank you!

Really cute bunkie with swimming pond right out front. Outhouse is a bit too much of a walk in the dark for my comfort (city girl) but fine with a buddy and a lantern (which is provided). They provided us with firewood and propane for the little bbq and stove. We caught a decent sized smallmouth bass right off the dock by the creek. Overall, great hosts and weekend.

Respuesta de Noreen:
Hi Aileen. Thank you for the kind words! Yes, unfortunately, the outhouse is about 40 feet from the cabin, which is why we provide an indoor bucket toilet in the cabin`s washroom. (for those late night or chilly winter visits). Though we had hoped to locate the outhouse closer to the cabin, protection of the groundwater and of this unique and fragile ecosystem was our number one priority. We had to ensure it was located well above the spring high water mark. Despite this inconvenience, we hope you enjoyed your stay!
