Summer Retreat with Yoga, Meditation & Beach Time – Escape the City!

Create your escape!

We all need an escape from home this year but not everyone wants the same getaway; so we’re offering a very simple daily schedule and options for the best of what the area has to offer.  We’re at the heart of Georgian Bay and the area comes alive in the summer with the natural beauty around us.  Surrounded by beaches, there are many local spots to go relax on the beach and swim, paddle board or stay put and enjoy our patio.


The opportunity for you to do whatever you need

This getaway is an opportunity for you to do whatever you need.  For some that may mean doing something different every day in the area and for others it can mean parking the car, and not going anywhere, or you can have a few days of both.  Park the car and chill for a couple days and then venture out to explore the area..


Whatever YOU need we’ll help to arrange it.  Everyone will relax deeply!  We will nurture you with wholesome organic meals and our stress free environment.  We’ll guide you to the best beaches around and pack you a lunch if that’s what you want.  If more nurturing is what you need we can book you a massage, mani/pedi or reiki session on site.

Here are some suggestions

There’s normally a lot to do in the area and availability will depend on what is allowed to be open.  Here are some suggestions – some are free and some have a cost.  Availability will depend on covid restrictions in place at the time.
