If you are looking for large private cottages for rent in Ontario you have come to the right place. "Breathe Easy" is a country house paradise on 140 acres, with expansive views of rolling forest and field in all directions, in a region with many rivers and small lakes, and close to Georgian Bay and Lake Huron, the Bruce Trail and conservation areas - perfect for your family reunion or holiday year-round. If you enjoy stargazing, the night sky is stunningly brilliant. The Styx River (part of the Saugeen River system) is at the base of the property, and the region is great for fishing, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, and exploring the natural environment, or, in winter,for skiing, snowmobiling and much more.
Breathe Easy is custom designed to provide bright, airy, spacious accommodations with environmentally sensitive design details.
The house has a passive solar design which helps keep the house warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Radiant floor heating provides a steady non-allergenic warmth in the winter, with five thermostat zones to allow for different needs in different parts of the house.
It sits atop one of the highest hills in the area, with soul-satisfying views over forest and field in all directions. The 140 acres encompass many habitats ... forest (pine, spruce, cedar, maple, ash, tamarack, and much more); wetland, riverside, and field. As a result, we provide shelter for many birds and a variety of wildlife (deer, fox, porcupines, racoons, rabbits and coyotes).
The lower level consists of: a very large sunroom/bedroom with up to
10 single beds in it (and we also have two extra self-inflating queen
size mattresses available); a large bedroom with a queen-sized bed, a
single bed and room for another single (we keep extra beds in
storage); a smaller bedroom with a double bed and a crib; a sitting
area with a pull-out queen-sized sofabed, another couch and two
daybeds; a three-piece (shower) bathroom; and a large play/workroom
with ping pong table, darts, a sitting area and a daybed. In all, we
can sleep 22 people on beds downstairs with mattresses available for
another 6-8 for a cottage total from 26-36 bed spaces!
