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.
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.
