Welcome to The Hideaway, a newly renovated luxury 2 bedroom cottage that's walking distance from Balm Beach, Georgian Bay. This family friendly cottage is thoughtfully designed for comfort and relaxation and is packed with amenities. Your own cedar sauna, fire pit, heated bathroom floor, plush towels, eco-friendly soaps, a loaded chef's kitchen, large living room with gas fireplace, HD TV, fast wi-fi, large assortment of boardgames, record player, curated book library, and so much more.

The space
We wanted to design a space where routines are forgotten and new traditions are born. Where you can escape from the city and enjoy the simple pleasures of a luxury cottage. Curl up with your favourite book. Put on a classic vinyl record. Enjoy a glass of wine. Stay up late playing board games. Build a bonfire. Walk to the beach. Try to catch a sunset. And don’t forget to make use of your private cedar barrel sauna.

Winter at The Hideaway

A lot of people actually prefer winter over the warmer 3 seasons. While the beach and some restaurants close down for a few months, there is still plenty to see and do. Wye Marsh has snowshoeing and cross-country skiing through a gorgeous trail system. There are local skating rinks close by. You can rent snowmobiles or go on guided excursions. Horseshoe Valley and Mount St. Louis Moonstone are both 30 minutes away for skiing and snow tubing. There's a brand new Scandinavian Bath Spa that's also a half hour drive. Or stay in your warm cozy cottage and make use of the firepit, sauna, indoor fireplace, and so much more. You can walk to a general store open year-round in a couple of minutes for morning coffee or hot chocolate.

Christmas at The Hideaway

Ho! Ho! Ho! For the entire month of December we transform The Hideaway into the North Pole. Twinkly string lights inside and out, garland, a holiday wreath on the door, and the centrepiece... a beautiful fully decorated Christmas Tree with a wrapped present underneath waiting for each guest.


Location

The Hideaway is walking distance (200 meters) to beautiful Balm Beach, a hidden-gem on Georgian Bay. A quaint but lively white sand beach with a fun beach town atmosphere. There's a huge open-air arcade, a BBQ joint with a second floor terrace overlooking the water, a family restaurant with a patio on the beach, and of course tons of ice cream options. Mini-putt and go-carts are only a 5 minute walk from the beach. It's a 1 minute walk to a big playground that children love, along with 3 brand new public tennis courts. Tiny Township has plenty to see and do: Hiking trails, wildlife centers, golf courses, ATV, jet ski and boat rentals. Downtown Midland is only a 12 minute drive, where you’ll find all the amenities of a large town (bowling, pool hall, groceries, hospital, shopping, and more). 60 minutes north of the GTA, 90 minutes north of Toronto. We have free parking for 3 vehicles.

Living Room

Your living room has a tall cathedral ceiling with whitewashed batten board walls. There’s a black iron gas fireplace, two comfy reading nooks that we’ve stocked with incredible books (the top 25 books on Goodreads and the last 25 years of Pulitzer prize winning novels for English fiction). You’ll have a cozy couch, chairs, pouf, tons of pillows and blankets, and a 55” HD smart TV with Neflix ready to go. If you’re into music, make sure you make use of the record player. Oh, and there’s space for yoga so we’ve included two yoga mats and blocks.

Bedroom 1

Stylish sleeping quarters come with a Queen size bed and plush linens. Your mattress is insanely comfortable, it’s a hybrid (medium/firm) with a combination of individually wrapped pocket springs and memory foam that molds to your body. Tons of pillows, so you can choose between Casper down pillows or memory foam. Linen duvet and Egyptian cotton sheets of course.

Bedroom 2

Another stylish sleeping quarters, only this time with a bunk bed. Full (slightly smaller than Queen, but still great for two adults) on the bottom, and a Twin on top. Both mattresses are OptiCool Gel Foam which provides comfortable medium/firm support. Casper down pillows or memory foam. Linen duvet and Egyptian cotton sheets of course.

Bathroom

Spacious bathroom with heated floors. Luxury tile shower with a selection of eco-friendly soap products (shampoo, conditioner, and body wash). Extra plush cotton towels for everyone, and lots of hooks so you can have your designated space. There is a washer and dryer you’re welcome to use.

Kitchen

Your Chef inspired kitchen is built for form and function. Brand new Smeg refrigerator, KitchenAid range, microwave oven, and everything you need to cook a homemade meal. We’ve stocked the kitchen with a toaster, tea kettle, plates, bowls, glassware (yes, wine glasses as well), flatware, pots & pans, mixing bowls, serving plates, a french press, even a Damascus hand-forged high carbon steel knife set. If you need an instant caffeine fix in the morning, we’ve also included a Keurig machine with a few pods to get you going.

Dining Room

The space is centered with a solid oak dining table with seating for six. Enjoy a wall of windows on one side, with a view of the lake, and the cozy living room on the other. We’ve included everything you need to host a beautiful dinner for six.

Workspace

If you need to get some work done, you’ll have two spacious wood desks with plenty of electrical outlets to plug your gadgets in. You’ll have high-speed internet for optimal productivity while you enjoy lake views from your “cottage office.”

Sauna

The heart of your private backyard sanctuary is the barrel sauna. It is made with Canadian western red cedar and is proudly manufactured in Canada. Guests can relax on the comfortable benches while sweating life’s stresses away. Adults only.

Fire Pit

We built a stone fire pit right next to the sauna to complete the Scandinavian Spa atmosphere. There are four large, comfortable Muskoka chairs and even two mini-kids chairs for the little ones. This is a great place to enjoy a glass of wine or a cold beer. Not to mention S’mores which are an absolute cottage-must. We include a few logs to get you started and more can be purchased nearby.


Babies & Children

Families with babies and children of all ages are welcome and encouraged at The Hideaway. We’ve left space for a Pack n’ Play crib if you have a little one. For bigger kids, the bunk beds are great. Under the bunk bed, we’ve stashed an assortment of amenities to help families with babies and children. Feel free to use our Nuna Pack n’ Play (we have fresh organic cotton sheets and a waterproof mat), Boon baby tub (you can use it the shower), and plenty of baby-proofing items (outlet covers, corner guards, etc..). We also have a high-chair in the guest closet you’re more than welcome to use for meal time.


Water and Air Quality

All cottage water comes from a well and is filtered, UV sanitized, and softened. For drinking water, we have a reverse osmosis system that provides an additional 5 levels of filtration plus remineralization so it’s safe to drink and tastes great.

The air you breathe while staying with us is extremely important. Our central heating and cooling systems use only the best high-grade filters which catch down to 1.0-3.0 micron particle sizes. We also employ a HEPA filter which removes 99.97% of pollutants as small as 0.3 microns.
