Unless you make special arrangements to rent the entire house for your exclusive use, the Host or other Guests may be staying in the other bedrooms, and sharing the common areas with you. Contact us for special pricing if you need more than 1 bedroom, or the entire house for your exclusive use.

We are ecologically based home, powered by wind & solar (with emergency backup generators), private water well, composting flush toilet, and Greenhouse Gas free wood heat system (we're in the process of installing a solar water heating system and radiant floor hot water heating).

This is a rustic cottage. This means there is drywall on one side of each bedroom wall for your privacy, with 2"x4" framing showing on the other side. Each private room has a solid door with a privacy lock.

If you aren't renting the entire house for your exclusive use, the common areas (eg. kitchen, bathroom, living room, etc.) are shared by all guests. Price is based on no meals. If you prefer, contact us for special pricing to provide some or all meals for an additional fee. Let us know what works best for you.

We are not "child proof", so if you have a busy toddler, there is lots to explore both inside & out, and you will have to adequately supervise your children at all times.

If you are looking for a quiet & secluded waterfront abode this is the place to book. The hosts are very friendly and enjoy sharing how they have constructed an "off-grid green home", that also includes adjacent farms for raising chickens and goats. My only regret was not having enough travel time to stay for some extra days.

Highly recommended if you are looking for an adventure. The place is very cool, powered by solar and wind energy. Glenn gave us a tour of the farm, which is very interesting. He is a great story teller. We had a lot of fun. The cottage uses well water. It is safe, but do have a strong metallic and sulphur odour and taste. So I recommend you to bring some extra bottled water for drinking. Other than that, the place is very unique and fun!

We booked the place for 10 people . The house had one master bedroom with a double bed and bunker beds in another bed room. These rooms had the lake view. Apart from these there are two more bed rooms. The experience was completely different from wt I expected it to be. I booked the place in the last moment of our trip and thought it would turn out a disaster as it wasn't planned but I had a different experience. The place was decent. You cannot expect a five star hotel in the middle of a forest. Glenn explained us everything clearly about the house and safety and near by places where we can go. He was a very good host. There was no description of Bbq on the website but they did have a Bbq and it was quite useful for us. The last 10 min drive to the house could be a bit annoying as the road is full of stones. Added to that it rained Friday night when we reached there. Glenn also took us on a trip to his farm and showed around and explained how he raises Chickens, Turkey and Sheeps. There are also LGD (Livestock Guardian Dogs) so no fear of wild life near the house. Hope the review helps. But the drive to near by beach is 5 mins and the rest of the famous places is at least 20-30 mins far. Good pick for someone who likes to spend time in peace and alone.

Great location, with view of the lake and you can even hear it from the bedroom! Lots of wildlife around the farm, and the island has some nice places to eat. We went to Garden's Gate, which was awesome. We had two bedrooms in Glenn's house, which were comfortable and well cared for. The house is a work in progress, which is cool to see, sustainability and handy work in action. We weren't aware we would be sharing the house with Glenn, that is something we would have liked to know beforehand. All the best Glenn, with the many projects you have planned for the future. You sure have an awesome piece of land with loads of opportunities.
