About this listing

Our charming cabin is nestled in the secluded hamlet of Kimberley, two hours from Toronto.. The best skiing in Ontario is nearby in Collingwood for winter visits and for the rest of the time, Sauble Beach, Ontario's best, is less than 30 minutes away for summer guests. Hikers come from all over to explore the Bruce Trail, which is in the back yard! Deer, wild turkey and the resident beaver are always around. The energy of this lovely retreat will rejuvenate you. It's peaceful here.

The space

Ours is a charming three bedroom bungalow with the most spectacular view of Old Baldy (an ancient heritage site) mountain. Newly renovated, this open concept home is designed for family gatherings and cooking. The dining room table seats 12 and the three bedrooms sleep 8. There are two cozy fireplaces for warmth and ambiance. Deer, wild turkey, Charles (the resident beaver) and lots of birds are around daily. An oversized deck to enjoy the view and rest.

Dawn's cottage was fantastic. We had a beautiful stay - so peaceful. Nice open concept setup for cooking and hanging out by the fire. Lovely long table and outdoor deck to suit the whole family eating and hanging out comfortably. Cute little general store a short walk away. Would book again - great spot!

Faye, I love that you 'get' the spirit of the place, the little hamlet the cabin is in and what it offers - peace, quiet and sanctuary if that's what one is looking for. A pleasure to host Faye!

Had an absolutely lovely time at Dawn's place, and wouldn't hesitate to go again. The view of the river and surrounding trees was beautiful, the fireplace was cozy, and the home itself was extremely well-stocked, especially the kitchen! Everything was very clean and tidy, and Dawn was quite accommodating and easy to get in touch with. Great hiking opportunities all around; the views from Old Baldy are not to be missed :) Thanks for making Thanksgiving 2016 one to remember!
