The perfect country cottage to rent for your vacation or retreat
A great atmosphere for relaxation and renewal
Shrug off your cares and the stress of a busy life at Breathe Easy, a spacious and welcoming country retreat that many describe as peaceful and harmonious.
Put your weary feet up in front of our custom-designed fireplace.
Relax and let your imagination soar under our cathedral ceilings.
Curl up with a good book from our well-stocked library, or settle into a rousing game of ping-pong, or something from our games cupboard.
Enjoy cooking up a feast in our large gourmet kitchen (or use the barbecue), and follow it up with a stroll on our 140 acres of field and forest.
Throw yourself into a rousing game of volleyball, baseball or soccer, or relax under the stars, sharing reminiscences around the firepit.
And when you are ready to wander out into Saugeen Country there are many recreational and cultural activities to keep you entertained.
An environmentally friendly paradise
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).
Words alone cannot convey the welcoming and relaxing atmosphere (take our virtual tour). Attention to detail has made this country home a harmonious and restful retreat for get-togethers of all kinds.
We enjoy art, colour, light and natural beauty and introduce as many of these features into the cottage as we can. Here are four examples that we hope will entertain and inspire you. Each room has something special and different. Top-left is a closeup of the dragonfly design within the ceramic tile fireplace surround made by a local artist. The centre image shows three aurora photographs hung behind the king bed in the Borealis room. At right is a wall mural in the bathroom, waiting for final touches to the sky. To the left is the unusual lighting of the Mandala room.
