"Live your beliefs... " Henry David Thoreau

Lo spazio
*** The fire ban (for personal warmth fires) has been lifted in the Municipality of Northern Bruce.***

*** Thoreau's Eco-Cabin is following all Province of Ontario and Municipality of Northern Bruce regulations during this unprecedented time. (Bruce Peninsula National Park is estimated to re-open June 1 for day use only.)

Thoreau's is located on a heavily-wooded lot close to Lake Huron; on windy days you can hear the waves. The tiny cabin is 20 minutes south-west from Lion's Head and about 55 minutes to Bruce Peninsula National Park. This experience is perfect for experienced outdoor enthusiasts who embrace nature but also enjoy the comforts of electricity. It is a rustic, but comfortable experience.

This is considered a "camping" environment; guests must bring their own drinking water, sleeping bag, pillow, towel and personal toiletries. Maximum 2 people. Please note: I provide special toilet paper for the outhouse, so it is not necessary to bring this item. Hand sanitizer is also provided.

There is no running water. Non-potable water will be provided at the back of the cabin for washing up, dish washing, etc.

Inside the cabin: The cabin features a futon sofa which transforms into a double bed. There is a coffee maker, filters, small fridge with freezer, microwave, two-element hotplate, toaster, kettle, heater, fan, radio/CD player, table, two chairs, dishes, pots, cutlery, dish towels, dish soap, etc. For enjoyment there are playing cards available and a variety of books about birds, animal tracts, etc.

When nature calls, a brightly-painted authentic outhouse is steps away. There will be natural odours inside the outhouse. And you may encounter some insects such as flies and small spiders.

A fire pit is provided along with two campfire chairs. A small picnic table completes the "back to nature" experience!

Safety features include a photoelectric smoke alarm, fire extinguisher, first aid kit, and a whistle. The closest hospital is located in Lion's Head, a 20-minute drive away. Watch for roots, rocks and stumps when walking on the property.

Free wifi is just down the road at "Katemma's," cafe, open for takeout Thursdays to Mondays. For quick-needed staples, By the Bay General Store in Pike Bay is also a few minutes away open seven days a week. By the Bay has just opened a LCBO outlet!

"The Rocks" are spectacular limestone formations about a 15 minute walk away. They are located off Julian Drive. In addition to the spectacular sunsets, you can enjoy a quick dip in the water.

In Lion's Head, 20 minutes away, hot showers are available (seasonally) at the Marina for $5. Lion's Head also has a nice small beach. Enjoy the Bruce Trail's spectacular views. Non-potable water is free at the Lion's Head Beach Park Campground. Potable water is free at the nearby Beach Pavilion. Excellent free wifi is provided at the Lion's Head Library. The Bruce Trail is accessible from two access points in Lion's Head. Parking is provided.

I live an hour away but will have everything ready for your stay. Flexible check-in allows for your traveling convenience, you can arrive at any time. Instructions regarding location of key, other information, etc. will be provided to you when you make your reservation.

Welcome and I hope you enjoy your stay!

Altre cose da tenere a mente
