Fabulous Family Retreat
This beautiful Western Red Cedar cabin in the woods has brought joy and happiness to the same family for 60 years. The Pan Abode Style Cabin was originally built in the 1960’s as a retreat from the stresses of city life. As the family grew, so did the structure. It was expanded in the 1980’s as more and more children, grandchildren and friends gathered to explore the magical 50 acres in the summer and hit the nearby ski hills in the winter. The property is located in Glen Huron, on the Niagara Escarpment, near the lovely town of Creemore. The cabin is perched above a picturesque ravine with a stream running through it. The hiking in the valley is inspiring with multiple trails winding through the property, as is the stargazing from the wraparound deck. The owners say there are many things they love about the property; the beauty of the countryside, the peace and solitude, the colour, the wonderful smell and the tactile quality of the red cedar logs but most of all the warm memories that are held within the cabin walls. The cabin has 2 bedrooms and a 3-piece bathroom on the main floor. The bright great room with the living and dining rooms and vaulted ceiling, are filled with large windows, each with wonderful views of the woods. The kitchen has a large pass-through to the great room so no one is ever left out of the conversation. The living room has a large custom built field-stone fireplace, with stones from the property and a direct fan - beautiful to look at but also toasty and warm. There is a cozy 4 season sunroom, perfect for early morning bird watching. The lower level has another bedroom, a 2 piece bathroom and a large recreation room which includes the pool table. The property has beautiful gardens throughout, a separate 2 car garage and a whole house generator.
This cabin in the woods is a perfect family retreat and place to reconnect with nature, but also close to many amenities. The nearby Devil’s Glen Ski Club, Mad River Golf Course, Collingwood’s Blue Mountain, Georgian Bay, Wasaga Beach, The Bruce Trail and the wonderful restaurants and shops in the charming town of Creemore. Also located only 1 ½ hours to downtown Toronto and 1 ¼ hours to Toronto’s Pearson Airport.
