Welcome to the Village Retreat House. We offer a place of heart and beauty to rest, recharge and rejuvenate in the village of Kimberley, nestled in the heart of Ontario’s Beaver Valley – just one and a half hours from Guelph, and two hours from Toronto. Here you will find village charm under the cliffs of Old Baldy and the Niagara Escarpment, steps from the Bruce Trail.
You will enjoy a delightful holiday queen suite in the cutest village in the area. Located in a small Canadian historic house with a terrific garden view of the cliffs, your clean and cosy self-contained private bed/sitting suite includes a full bath, and a boutique kitchen.
Shop, eat and dine at the Kimberley General Store, explore paddling the river or all the escarpment has to offer. Georgian Bay beaches nearby add to a perfect holiday spot. The village is just half an hour west of Blue Mountain/ Collingwood.
Your private suite is at the front of the house, with a separate entrance through a large deck and outdoor dining space. The spacious queen bedroom with clean, fresh linens has comfy seating and a writing desk, and is decorated with art, quilts, rustic antiques, vintage collectibles and cosy chairs and throws. Everyone loves the gorgeous bed, and the cute kitchen has a cafe table and every kitchen gadget you might need.
This suite is great for a couple getaway or personal retreat. There is space for your yoga mat inside or out, and you can recline or dine on your own front deck. Enjoy frisbee or cocktails by the barn and picnic table in the one acre garden, with a view of Old Baldy. In season, there are vegetables to share in the garden. At night, enjoy the fire pit and fireflies!
You will be steps from Kimberley General Store and Justin’s Oven Dining, famous for smoothies and sandwiches, Friday gourmet pizza night, plus local food galore. And don’t miss the local sites like the Beaver Valley Cidery, Fiddlehead Edible Landscaping and Artemesia Daylilies, all within 5 km of Kimberley: learn more on this page about places to explore.
The suite offers total privacy, although I am always available when needed or by text, and I will be delighted to orient you to services and points of interest. Private yoga class available upon request. Paddle board lesson/tours on the Beaver River or Lake Eugenia are also available. You will find us in our own private section of the house at the back and full upstairs, with separate side porch entrance. Yoga mats and props available, as well as local points of interest brochures. Boat rentals nearby. Lots of parking.
The Kimberley Retreat House is the perfect place to unwind, full of interesting books, art and collectibles. This is a place you could retreat to and leave your car parked if you chose to, or use as a base to explore the area. Great for weekends, or extended retreats, feel free to ask for possibilities available to you.
