Wildwood Farm is just outside Haliburton Village, 3 hours from downtown Toronto. An 1870’s farmstead has been gradually converted to a 300-acre forest wildlife preserve.
The Apartment is a spacious open plan. It feels cozy thanks to century-old wood, original art and natural light.
Your hosts will extend every effort to make your stay delightfully memorable.
The queen size bed has a choice of feather duvet or light comforter. Extra pillows and individual lamps for reading in bed.
So many places to sit or kick back . . . huge couch, reclining reading chair, antique pine writing desk, three cafe tables - in main room, sunroom, outside (weather permitting). Haliburton chairs on a covered deck overlook the meadow.

Appliances: microwave. toaster. kettle. automatic coffeemaker. A cooler chest substitutes for a fridge. Dishes can be washed up at a station in front of a forest-view window.

Other things to note
Come prepared for the outdoors, and temperature swings. It can be buggy in the Wildwood in May, June and July. Hats and long sleeves will help. We're happy to provide insect spray. Sturdy footwear is recommended to explore the woodland trails.
Weather permitting - you'll have a private entrance from guest parking under the big maple tree. In case of snow or muddy conditions, you'll enter through our common space. Either way, once you're in the Apartment - you are self-contained and private.

My husband Hugh and I welcome you!
We moved with our young family to Haliburton County 20+ years ago to find a quieter life. Here we have found expression in being part of a lively arts and music community, surrounded by nature. Hugh plays trumpet and cornet in every kind of group from jazz and blues to chamber orchestra. He's easing into retirement from architecture, by spending more time watching for wildlife passing through our meadow.
I recharge by exploring outdoors - a habit started at age nine when I led neighbourhood friends on expeditions behind waterfalls, down train tracks and making tree forts. Now I fatbike rail trails, and create new footpaths through the wildwoods around our properties.
