2021 BOOKINGS - Please note, Summer 2021 is Full. We are happy that so many of you want to come and stay with us but due to high demand we are unable to respond if your requested dates show full on our Calendar. We always keep our Calendar up to date and will post Availability and Cancellations here first. Thanks for your understanding.

COVID 19 - Due to the ongoing pandemic we are hosting family/extended family groups only. Apologies, but we are unable to host large adult-only groups from multiple households. As things improve in Ontario, we hope to revert to normal operations.

BOOKS BOOKS BOOKS! We are excited to announce our award-winning property is featured in three beautiful coffee table books. 'Living on Vacation: Contemporary Houses for Tranquil Living' (2020) published by Phaidon; 'Homes For Our Time: Contemporary Houses around the World' (2019) by Philip Jodidio, published by Taschen; and 'Nature View: Perfect Holiday Homes' (2019) published by Lannoo.

AN ARCHITECTURAL GEM SET IN YOUR OWN PRIVATE WILDERNESS. Luxurious Canadian lakeside living comes to the heart of the Haliburton Highlands with this international architect-designed gem beautifully situated in the heart of the Canadian Wilderness. Featured in Architectural Digest magazine, and winner of the American Institute of Architecture (AIA) National Housing Award 2018, the AIA Merit Award 2017 (and more!) our beautiful four-season property thoughtfully fuses modern master craftsmanship with indoor-outdoor connectivity. Completed three years ago, the unique hand-crafted wood structure offers floor-to-ceiling windows, wood-burning granite fireplaces (inside and out), a soaring two-storey ceiling, fir beams and heated hardwood floors throughout. The Bear Stand (named after an old hunting stand found on the property) fuses the traditional cabin experience with the best in contemporary design.
