This is a cage-free pet resort for kids since 1996. We are in the heart of Muskoka, minutes from world renown Algonquin Provincial Park where you will want to hike trails, check out their visitor centre and maybe a little camping or canoeing tripping while you are here.

Muskoka is the National Cottage Country capitol with over a 1,000 pristine lakes. Our property has lots of ponds and is located in the spring-fed kettle lakes hills that supply fresh water to Lake of Bays. Just steps away from us are 4 small lakes with blue heron rookeries, where moose, whitetail deer and other wildlife come for a drink. Those who love watching wildlife in their natural habitat will love it.

There are lots of hiking trails you can simply walk out and enjoy. We have bikes and a second house in Huntsville on a lake and walking distance to fun things in town, including Algonquin Outfitters where you can rent canoes, kayaks and water boards from the downtown dock, slip into a pub or coffee shop afterwards. It`s a great spot to spend some outdoors and downtime. During the winter there is an amazing ice track you can ice skate for 3km at Arrowhead Park... and nearby Hidden Valley has a great downhill skiing. We also have rehomed a dozen Siberian Huskies from through Ontario's Humane Societies and other rescues, and we have built them a huge Sanctuary where they can run, play and swim too, and in the winter months, they enjoy one on one skijoring, kicksled, sprint sled team fun with us along for the ride too of course.

You can enjoy exploring nearby towns and villages such as Huntsville, Baysville, Port Sydney, Dorset, etc or be refreshed spending time at beaches or waterfalls park areas. There are a number of craft beer distilleries in the area and so many interesting tourist destination places to explore

We have an exciting build underway of a new Resort Pavilion. It's so wonderful and totally under control by professionals. However, I'd love some help from cheery couples or singles who love to try their hand at something creative... So if you like to garden or putz a bit with tools, you could really enjoy some creative projects such as building some new flower beds or making rose arbours for our new "private residence" pathways. We'd love some help with the dogs if you are a real dog person, and if you like physical challenges or creative ones there are so many fun projects you can choose from and then make your memorable mark on our beautiful pet resort.

Just a side note: We recommend arranging to have your International Drivers license before you leave home. We are thinking about getting a second set of wheels we can lend our guests but need you to have an international drivers license.

Food is excellent, we do a lot of vegetarian dishes, but not 100%, we can supply fresh farm eggs, fish, etc. We have a lot of the extras that vegans are delighted to find in our larders. We are open to new culinary talents.

Be sure to check out our website and facebook. We have lots of photographs and it's a great way to learn some of the dogs` names that you will get to know during your stay.
