With over 2400 square feet of luxurious living quarters, Parks Creek Retreat achieves the perfect balance of privacy and open space. This beautiful timber frame home is an ideal nature retreat for families, friends and colleagues. It is situated on 18 acres of natural forest alongside the serene Parks Creek and boasts a creekside dock, and a natural swimming hole.

The space

Step into this beautiful, natural wood home and you will immediately see why people come back year after year. It's artful layout means that up to 12 guests can be comfortably accommodated in four bedrooms, three of which enjoy creekside views.

A large great room with vaulted ceilings, oversized cathedral windows and a stone fireplace sit at the heart of the retreat and flows into a generous kitchen and a beautiful dining area.

Be prepared to lose track of time in the enclosed porch which boasts a seven person hot tub, swinging bed, and a cozy couch which wraps around a stone fire table. This setting is designed with both intimacy and community in mind.

Words cannot do justice to the pleasure you'll find after stepping out of your hiking boots or skates and warming yourself in front of a blazing fire; a mug of hot cocoa in hand. The great room invites you to choose your favourite spot on the fireside sofa, curled up with a book and those you love at your side.

The beautifully equipped kitchen offers everything you need for culinary brilliance and family feasts can be served with ease at the convivial dining table.

Later, retire to the theatre room which welcomes you to relax on the comfortable, curved fireside couches and theatre seating. Two large double doors give you an unobstructed view of the creek.

In warmer months the deck overlooking the creek is ideal for enjoying barbecues and the large custom made harvest table beckons for you to gather with friends and family to enjoy a meal al fresco.

Excellent restaurants, golf courses, shopping, wine tours and theatres are within a 20 minute drive of the retreat.

Parks Creek Retreat was the perfect getaway for our family Thanksgiving. There were 8 adults, 2 babies, and there was more than enough space for all of us. The pictures don't do it justice! The place is beautifully built and decorated. The place was well stocked (towels, soap, toilet paper, coffee, condiments). The surround sound was great for watching live sports or listening to music. We spent the majority of our time indoors but can imagine how great the outdoor space would be in the warmer months. A bonus to this place was how family friendly it was. There is baby furniture available for use which saved us on trunk space. Becky was a great host. She was unable to meet us but the check in was seem less. She responded to all of our questions promptly. Would definitely recommend this place and stay again! Thanks again Becky!

A perfect getaway location if you are looking for a quiet, attractive, comfortable space. Very spacious and clean, with many amenities directly aimed at relaxation. The stream was a definite highlight, and we were visited by a deer as we enjoyed the dock! Could not think of a better escape for our girls' weekend. Becky even arranged for a yoga instructor to deliver a class on the dock - heaven!

My family and I had the pleasure of staying at Parks Creek Retreat for the Labour Day long weekend. The location is close to the 401, yet feels like it is in a world of its own. This beautifully decorated spacious house was perfect for our 2 toddlers and a large group of 10 adults. It was fully stocked, clean, and had every amenity we needed. Did I mention it looked absolutely gorgeous? I can't stress that enough. We were already making plans of our next visit only 30 mins into the stay. I recommend the Irish Cream coffee from the coffee station as a must-try! Becky was a gracious host and was always available via phone or text. She gave us a tour of the property and went over all the do's and don'ts. I wholeheartedly recommend this location to any family who is looking for a true home away from home. Thank you, Becky. You'll see us again very soon!

Parks Creek Retreat was great! The place is beautiful and very clean. We loved having a bonfire near the creek and soaking in the hot tub at night. Becky is a great host - very quick to respond if you have questions and friendly. Our group of friends would love to go back for a visit!

In addition to operating this retreat, I am also a wife and busy mom of 3 fiesty little girls. Our family are outdoor enthusiasts and you can commonly catch us hiking, riding bikes and visiting local parks and beaches.
I take great pride in everything I do and have, as you'll see when you stay at our beautiful retreat.
