Lakeside gazebo for a romantic getaway in Ontario

This gorgeous gazebo rental in the Trent Hills, surrounded by woodlands and an exclusive lake, makes for a wonderful couple's retreat in Ontario. The gazebo has a luxurious double bed with bedding and soft furnishings as well as a plush sofa for guests to wind down in the evenings. The beautiful, large windows are dressed with high-quality curtains which guests can drawback for panoramic views of the woodland or close for privacy. Next to the gazebo, there is a beautiful, wooden outhouse with a foot pump sink, towels, and toiletries. There is also a private outdoor shower area attached to the outhouse so guests can feel fully immersed in nature.

Guests can choose to have their meals at the ornate dining table, by the light of the LED candles for a cozy mood, or at the wooden table on the screened-in decking area. This area has a long, cushioned sofa, a storage cabinet for homeware and crockery, and tea and coffee-making facilities.
The gazebo does not have electricity which allows guests to experience glamping the eco-friendly way and switch off from modern distractions. However, there is a small, quiet power station for recharging phones, laptops, and small electrical devices in the room. The tranquil location of the gazebo is guaranteed to help guests relax and feel closer to nature. Guests can explore the 100 acres of woodland and see the local wildlife, or take the canoes down to the lake and cast off for a fun day on the water.


Please note:
This property is an animal-free zone due to SEVERE allergies. Please don't ask if you can bring your dog, cat etc.
We also have deer and other creatures that live around the gazebos. The scent of a dog would scare them off, fundamentally changing the nature of the experience or impacting it for other guests.

Historical Significance of the property: When we first saw the property we were awestruck by its beauty and allure. We were captured by the natural springs, river and stream. It wasn't until after the deal closed that we found out that we also had a lake. What an incredible surprise and gift. It also wasn't until much later that we learned about the historical significance of this special place. It turns out that our property is part of the Percy Portage, which was an important route used for centuries by the Hurons, Iroquois and Mississaugas. It also formed the basis of the first road in the region in the early 19th century for settlers an those heading north. Samuel de Champlain used this portage in September 1615 when he travelled south with his Huron and Algonquin allies on their way to upstate New York. In the 1970's, a group of students from Trent University retraced and marked the route by adding orange metal markers to some of the trees along the way. Some of them are still present today.

A few steps away from the Gazebo you will find a small dock with a canoe, a kayak, paddles and life jackets. If you paddle out to the middle of the lake you will find a raft with 2 lounge chairs and an umbrella on it. Bring some drinks and snacks, because once there, you will not want to leave. Our curious loons will no doubt swim up close to say hello. Enjoy!

We are in a quiet and rural setting, but also close to a few small towns. Hastings, Warkworth and Campbellford make up Trent Hills. Our closest town is Hastings ( 10 mins north ) and there you will find a grocery store for all your food needs, should you choose to not pack food. Hastings also has a LCBO. Warkworth is a quaint and artsy little town. On the short Main Street, you will find The Lucky Stars Cafe, Centre & Main Artisan Chocolate, a couple of gift shops and antiques. Campbellford is the bigger town and will have a lot more going on. If you choose to eat out there are some great choices in the area. In Hastings McGillecafey's is a pub style restaurant. Caper's in Campbellford is one of our go to places. Dorset will make you a delicious prime rib au jus, complete with roasted root vegetables. Campbellford is also home to Antonia's Bistro where Ravi makes the best butter chicken, with a side of papadums. In Warkworth there is Sper restaurant. Chef Doug Hope makes the best farm to table meals. Reservations are required. We also have the Villa Conti restaurant and vineyard 15 mins from us in Oak Heights.
