    We live next to a beautiful lake and are close to the the Bruce Trail, Eugenia Falls, Hogg's Falls, Old Baldy, Metcalfe Rock. and Feversham Gorge. We are not that far from Village at Blue near Collingwood. We have canoes and kayaks that you can use to take out on the lake. There is swimming off our dock, fishing , campfires, the sounds of loons and geese and beautiful sunsets. I look forward to showing you around this beautiful area. My partner and I have lived here for 20 years and we have two one year old puppies that have joined our family.

    There is swimming off our dock, fishing and beautiful sunsets. The Niagara Escarpment has beautiful forests and waterfalls. The lake has a great variety of wildlife (fish and fowl) and water plants. It is a wonderful environment to work and play. We have a lot of knowledge about the history and geography of our area. In the winter, there are ski hills and skating about 35 minutes away. You can cross country ski or snowshoe around our lake or on the trails.

    Can possibly accept pets

    I already have two 1 year old puppies and so it may be too hectic with more animals on site. Also my husband is allergic to dog hair. I am open to discuss it with you.
