Spațiul
Ask Kelvin (aka Creek) for a tour of the property. Do some "wild harvest." Go kayaking. Paddle from McKenny's bridge downstream through a wilderness untouched by man (2-2.5 hrs depending on how long you dally)! Finish back home at the camp. Or start from the property for short or longer trips.

The creek is "beautiful." Two large decks, many outdoor chairs and tables, a bbq, fire circle. There is everything here that you need for a really intimate and lovely time in nature. Hang out on the hammocks. Watch birds. Feel free to putter in my garden. All weeding accepted!

The property has wifi with enough bandwidth to watch movies on the tv at night. The solar system is very robust. A/C if you need it. Dishwasher. Microwave. Fridge. Induction cooktop or use the propane stove.

Great proximity to nature of course; historic Merrickville, the arts and restaurant mecca, is 15 minutes away. You're an hour from Ottawa with museums, restaurants, culture. And 1/2 hr from the bridge to the US. Brockville is 40 minutes.

Less than 15 minutes also brings you to a launching ramp onto the Rideau River with its many parks, fishing, swimming, boating etc.

The best times:

Spring: offers the best of spring. Stuff coming alive. No bugs until mid-may. The best kayak/canoe opportunities (2 kayaks provided). Best for active folks or those looking to get some writing done. Lots of birds.

Early summer: yup. Bugs can be a nuisance. But massive numbers of birds are showing up. And the area around the camp is usually pretty bug free. Mostly thanks to the birds in pre-nest mode and the squadrons of dragonflies. Ideal time for lovers and bird watchers. The apple tree will be in blossom over the bedroom door. Makes a nice entrance to the day.

Summer: This is the best time for super chill relaxation. The bugs are usually gone by Canada Day. The sun is trapped between the tree lines. Hang in the hammock. The grasses will be up over 2m high. The birds taper back a bit as the bobolinks head south with their new families. If you're a painter the gardens are in full bloom. Lots of great vistas and moments.

Fall: The fall migration means this is the best time for birders. Spring is good. But the fall is crazy. Huge flocks of ducks and geese will perform aerial acrobatics. Many many many species flock through the fields, treelines and forests. From Trumpeter swans to more sparrows than you can count. Yes. There are some super rare ones. Maybe even nesting spring/summer. Shhhh.

Winter: I use the camp 4 seasons and normally would open up for winter visitors. Week long visits only. Its a beautiful time for contemplation and creativity. Something wonderful about pondering by the crackling fire. Wood stove baking cornbread. Snowblowing the lane and shoveling included! smile. However this year I am renovating. Next year perhaps.

Accesul oaspeților
The whole property is available for your use. During the spring and early summer about two acres is filled in by tall grasses (like 8'/2+m tall!). This is ideal habitat for ground nesting birds. For this reason I ask that that space not be disturbed. There are two small forests to wander through. Three fields. Small gardens which you may partake of. The creek to paddle. Etc.

Alte lucruri de reținut
No pets. Due to the rural location and nesting birds we ask that this be a no pet area. Both for the safety of the wild birds and your pet.
The solar system is state of the art. During the summer there should be no limitations to overall power use.
The "facility" is composting. There is no smell and water is used to flush. There is a fairly big 36x60 shower. Small but fancy laundry washer, with an outdoor clothes dryer.
There may be occasional racket from local farmers. The field next to the farm has been in hay for 60 years. This year they are planting an area in corn. The corn is very pretty and the area until late Fall, very quiet.
There may also be minor construction. I am "finishing." But I work around your schedule. Basically I'm down to some finishing trim and siding. Nothing major. I build solar systems so I may be by to work. I'm "in the barn" so interaction is at your request.

Oxford Station, Ontario, Canada

This is a rural area. Within a kilometer are five farms. There is easy access to Ferguson Forest with its many hiking, biking and motor sport trails. Merrickville is very close with art galleries, restaurants and a surprisingly good beach for swimming.

I am available to give tours and explanations of how the place was built. There is a two kilowatt solar system that is very high quality. Numerous facilities that have been built. If you are curious about off grid, tiny house building, and small home life, this is your experience for sure.
