The space
Small, cute and peaceful. That is how I describe Rube's Retreat. The view from the living room and kitchen onto Lake Ontario, with the windmills of Wolfe Island in the distance is, to me, absolutely stunning. There are two amazing waterfront trails nearby if you would like to get outside for some fresh air. Rube's Retreat is just a great place to be!

Welcome to Rube's Retreat, our little gem just outside of downtown Kingston, tucked in a wooded area behind the Military Base. Given the many hours my friend Reuben put into our favourite place on Earth, it was not hard at all to think of a name for our cute little cottage, now lovingly named Rube's Retreat. I just absolutely love this place and the beautiful wildlife, water and land surrounding it. Everything at Rube's Retreat brings an abundance of peace to my soul and I am so thankful I have had the opportunity during my life to be part of this amazing experience. We hope you will enjoy your time at Rube's Retreat and we look forward to hosting you!! Thank you, Sylvia.
