Simple, Affordable, Unforgettable!
Welcome to Ontario's first and the Kawartha's only straw bale wellness retreat center! Located east of Peterborough, Ontario, about 2 hours northeast of Toronto and 3 hours west of Ottawa, this wellness retreat in its soothing straw bale home offers a calm, supportive atmosphere for the ultimate relaxing experience. Put on the brakes, gear down and get ready to re-connect with your inner self. Whether walking in the Labyrinth in the 22 acre hardwood forest, reading a book by the ornamental pond, watching the variety of birds at the feeders, joining in a facilitated retreat or being pampered with alternative treatments, there is something for everyone.
Dine on tasty traditional or vegetarian cuisine carefully prepared with as many organic foods as possible. Select one of the treatments offered by various local practitioners from our Treatments page to further enhance your wellness experience!
By yourself, with a special friend or group of your nearest and dearest (up to 9), come and experience relaxation at it's simplest. Choose from a facilitated weekend retreat on our Workshops page , bring your scrap booking buddies or chose a self-guided retrerat from our Getaways page
