Dear airbnbers! We are introducing two new accommodations. A tipi (which is now listed) and a brand new two storey YURT! For those of you hoping to book our current yurt listing but didn't find date availability keep your eyes peeled for our new one going up!
Tucked away and out of sight, our 23 ft custom built Yurt sits on a beautiful, PRIVATE lazy river in the middle of a 700 acre farm up the road from Algonquin Provincial Park N. The beauty of the natural world is all around us
Dear airbnbers! We are introducing two new accommodations. A tipi (which is now listed) and a brand new two storey YURT! For those of you hoping to book our current yurt listing but didn't find date availability keep your eyes peeled for our new one going up very soon!
@thebuffalofarm Spring and summer yurt experience is one not to miss! There is nothing more lovely than waking up to the sound of birds chirping right outside your door. Take your morning coffee or tea down to the river cabana and watch the sun come up and sparkle over the lazy river. Jump into the river and swim about any swimming holes and sandy beaches close by. The river is extremely private and you will have it all to yourself ! You'll love swimming here! Our Spring and summer YURT experience is truly a unique one with many exciting and interesting activities to participate in.
If you are a photographer, hiker, fisher, swimming lover, painter, blogger or nature lover...this is the season for you! You will find yourself buried in beautiful sunrises and sunsets.
If you are interested in hiking we have several trail options for you! We have a combined 10 km of trails on site, taking you through woods, along the river, across fields of horses,cattle and bison. The EAU CLAIRE Gorge is located minutes from the farm and is a beautiful site at any time of the year. The water that falls over its face is flowing from Algonquin Park via the Amable Du Fond river which is the same river that the yurt sits on. Definitely worth checking out.
Maybe you want to just cozy up inside with a book and apple cider, board game, crafts or lay in bed and watch the clouds pass through the skylight. There is a wood stove that will keep you nice and warm throughout your fall season stay. You can make all kinds of fun WINTER treats on the wood stove including Warm apple cider, Hot chocolate, Herbal Teas etc!
We supply wood for both the campfire and wood stove. There is no electricity so anything you want to cook will be done on the campfire or wood stove. Get creative! This can be really fun. Pinterest is a great place to search for fun and creative things you can do without electricity!
There is a Cabana outside the yurt overlooking the river which is perfect for doing yoga or relaxing in the recliners, eating meals and reading books!
Secluded, rustic, cozy and picturesque!
Your WINTER YURT experience will be one that you won't forget.
Special Summer/Fall Experiences:
The Horse Sanctuary – The Buffalo Farm is a sanctuary for 14 rescued horses and is part of a local network that saves dozens of horses every year. You are invited to an intimate and guided interaction with our horses to meet them, hear their stories, pet and groom them. This is a very special experience which our guests invariably love. Please let us know upon arrival if you'd like to book a tour. As much as we'd like to show everyone the horses and spend time together, we are also a working farm from sunrise to sunset and there is the odd occasion where we might be busy and we might not be able to do the tour (rare circumstances )
For this, we ask for a minimum contribution of $30 per hour for the first person and $15 per hour for each additional adult, kids are free. These contributions will help us maintain our herd and help our network rescue and care for more horses.
"The horses were the true stars of this trip: getting to pet them, hear their stories from Javid, plus the girls getting to ride the largest one - those are memories that will last a lifetime."
Activities throughout the year:
(some on property - some nearby)
-Maple syrup collection
- Yoga/meditation retreats
-Pick your own garden
- Guided Lazy river Excursion
-Livestock interaction/ Farm tours
Guests have access to 700 acres on our property. There are a combined 10km of trails for guests to hike, snow shoe, cross country ski and more! This is a very remote and secluded location.
Ask us anything ! Hosts are on site and give you a walkie-talkie to communicate with them
As the weeks roll forward we are starting to warm up! However we have to depend on the wood stove to keep us warm and for cooking. We would like to make sure our guests are confident in tending to a fire. The yurt is setup for a few people with 1 bed but can easily be setup to accommodate 8 people with 4 beds.
We strongly prefer it if guests do a thorough recycling of any waste and be respectful
We are all guests on the planet
