"Green" Farmhouse Retreat

Welcome to our historic farmhouse retreat set on 2+ acres of landscaped rural beauty in the heart of Grey. Perfect for families or couples looking to get away and enjoy everything Georgian Bay and Beaver Valley have to offer. Our recently renovated 3-bedroom, 2 bath farmhouse is fully furnished with a mix of mid-century modern and antique furniture. The kitchen is equipped with everything you'll need for quiet dinners or entertaining; complete with a professional Viking stove, dishwasher, deep freezer, and anything else you might need to cook or bake up a feast. The heated floors and woodstove are perfect for curling up in winter. We have a work space, and plenty of "nooks" for private space. In summer, enjoy the wrap-around veranda, large terrace and bbq, and vegetable garden (which we encourage guests to eat from, and care for). The property is retrofitted with solar panels that go back to the grid, which are located on a secondary building (a former community hall) that can be used as a studio (extra rental fees apply). We are located about 10-15 minutes from Markdale grocery and shops, and about 20 minutes to Meaford or Thornbury. Beaver Valley Ski Resort is about a 10 minute drive. Roads are cleared regularly in winter, and the driveway is ploughed. We have plenty of local recommendations for incredible hikes, kayaking/canoeing, swimming and cycling - maps are available at the house.

About Me
I am a communications consultant splitting my time between city life in Toronto, Canada and a more rural setting near Meaford, Ontario. Though my work and travels have taken me many places, we recently purchased a historic farmhouse on 2+ acres in the heart of a farming community in Grey Highlands where we hope to be able to spend plenty of time and offer short-term refuge from city-life to others.
