Our yurt qualifies under Premier Doug Ford's Staycation Tax Credit! This means each Ontario resident can claim 20% of their booking fees up to $1000 (or $2000 each couple) on their 2022 income taxes!

If you are seeking restitution away from the pressures of everyday living, enjoy "glamping" without the fuss, our lakefront yurt & cabin is sure to re-connect you back to nature and explore the ultimate Algonquin experience.

This wonderfully, amazing, peaceful & secluded natural oasis is in the heart of one of Ontario's top tourist areas, just minutes away from internationally renowned Algonquin Provincial Park & Arrowhead Provincial Park & precisely 12 minutes from Muskoka's cultured town of Huntsville.

During late Spring, Summer and Fall the adjacent cabin compliments the yurt in giving you an additional screened-in porch overlooking the dock. They are both located within meters of each other and you will be assured full privacy on the 11 acres of private property.

Pets with up-to-date vet shots are welcomed at no charge, but advance notice is required.

The thought of sitting around a campfire under a clear sky, gazing up at the stars and listening to the sounds of the night can pacify your minds and rejuvenate your soul!

Each booking comes complete with a two day starter supply of camp firewood: should you require more, just stock up from the wood supply on site with a volunteer donation.

We enjoyed a cozy, romantic weekend in the crisp winter wilderness. This Yurt is on Benson Lake, and the privacy is beyond refreshing.

On arrival, we found the paths around the Yurt and its outbuildings were cleared of snow and the furnace was already hot for us.

Doug & Orla are very good at what they do, we were blown away by the quality of the entire experience.

During our stay we enjoyed snowshoeing with the complimentary pairs provided, breaking trail about a kilometer along the shoreline; this hike would be difficult other times of the year due to dead fall and wetlands.

I recommend this location to anybody comfortable with casual camping, and looking to get out in the winter.

Absolutely beautiful and very well equipped. We had an amazing time staying in the yurt but my favourite spot to sit was the gazebo right on the lake shore. We absolutely plan to go back in the future.

We have decided to elope somewhere here in Canada and were looking for the perfect place. So we stumbled over this wonderful place. The pictures catched immediately our eye and after writing a few words with Doug and Orla we knew, this will be the perfect place for our perfect wedding. We cannot put into words how lucky we were to have found this yurt and to have gotten to know Orla and Doug. The communication before our arrival was just perfect, they answered all of our questions immediately and were even offering to help us with whatever we needed. On our arrival day (the day before our wedding) we found the place wonderfully and thoughtfully decorated with flowers from Orlas private garden. The area, the yurt, the cottage, the lake just the whole area is AMAZING and BREATHTAKING. Absolute, complete privacy, there is literally no one, we had the whole lake and everything around for ourselves. We were planning on going hiking but instead we spend all the time at the lake with swimming, kanooing, drinking coffee and watching the loons from the dock and enjoying the evening in front of the fire pit. Although it is very secluded, the town of Huntsville is very close. It is a very sweet town with lots to do and also great restaurants. Thank you Doug and Orla that you were having us, for being so uncomplicated, reliable and wonderful hosts and a big THANK YOU for letting us have the wedding of our dreams at your little piece of heaven.

Dear Doug and Orla,this was our first time staying at a yurta and a wonderful experience it was!The setting,structure and vista over the lake are truly magnificant.It was such a delight to settle into the the generous and most comfortable bed,while watching the branches of the pine and hemlock sway high above the circular sky light in the yurta.The airtight wood heater is additionally a welcomed feature and must make winter stays suitably comfortable and comforting.
The dining and recreational cabin,just a few meters down the path from the yurta is more than adequately equipted with bbq,an assortment of dish wear, utensils and work surface.
How lovely it was after a days paddling, to sit and take a cooked meal and glass of wine with my life partner while watching the night close over the lake.
It was with both pleasure in the stay and sadness in the leaving that we collected up our packs and slowly drove the enchanted road out to the highway.
God and good fortune willing we shall return to this part of paradise that you folks have made so generously available for all to enjoy and cherish.
Kindness regards

My girlfriend took me here for my 40th birthday as I enjoy roughing it, her not at all so it was a best of both worlds, very private, the yurt is amazing inside, luxury sleeping quarters, the cabin is perfect to relax and bug free if you prefer to eat at the table or cook on the BBQ provided, also multiple spots to cook over a fire, great dock to have a morning coffee and to have a swim, listen to the loons early morning and at night, waterfall near the yurt to listen to as you sleep, amazing place, dog friendly, canoe and paddle boat included, Algonquin park pass and some cool books likely left behind to read on a rainy day and scrabble, will go back in a heartbeat, but 3 days was to little
