As the National Geographic Magazine (January, 2016) issue, The Power of Parks, states, "When we get closer to nature–be it untouched wilderness or a backyard tree–we do our over-stressed brains a favour. Nature nurtures us."

Confederation Homestead is our recommended way for you and your spouse/partner/family/friends to get away from the stresses of city life and rest, or explore our forest, or whatever makes you de-stress.

Our 36-acre farm is surrounded by forest, with its own pond, entirely private and quiet. It comes with a lovely 1866 log-pioneer home which is a wonderful cross between visiting our past history, decorated with period antiques, and the loving and tasteful updates of modern convenience. Situated in the scenic locale of Haliburton County in Ontario, it is a 2-3 hour drive from Toronto or 4 1/2 hours from Ottawa. Available for rentals year round. A Wonderful place to spend your Honeymoon (we did in 2009, and we loved it so much we bought the place).

We are pet friendly. Well-behaved animals are welcome including cats and dogs.

We invite you to explore our website, view the many amenities made available to you, all for a reasonable rate, be it a weekend or a week or two. We have a loyal group of guests who come back, again and again. We welcome you to join that group.

You can view many more pictures, learn more and book by going to our site.

**Please note this is a Housekeeping Cottage, which means you are expected to leave it in the condition you found it. Cleaning products and tools are provided. You also need to supply your own linens, however for travelers from afar or those who wish to use it, we can offer a linen service at an additional reasonable charge.

Additional Notes:
Entirely private swimming is available in our pond, which comes with a wooden floating raft.

Our 36 acre forest has marked rough trails for walking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing (around the pond and meadow only). The trails go steadily upward to a ridge, and go through the mixed forest of interesting terrain which includes rocky outcrops.

Whitewater rafting is available nearby at the Minden Whitewater Rapids at Horseshoe Lake, site of the 2015 Pan Am Games and Olympic Whitewater rafting competition.
