What will make your vacation special? Would it be taking your morning coffee onto the deck as you watch the deer quietly grazing by the river? Perhaps fishing from the dock as the sun sparkles on the water and birds flit through the trees? Maybe your dream day concludes with a lazy splash in the river to cool down after a day of hiking. And then an evening spent roasting marshmallows and telling stories around the campfire as the fireflies light up around you. What could be more memorable?
Red River Retreat enjoys a private and tranquil location on one and a half acres in the heart of the Kawarthas. Trees, rocks, pond and river make up this enchanting private respite. The peaceful Miskwaa Ziibi River gently flows at the back of the property providing a convenient setting for those who enjoy non-motorized water activities. A fire pit situated by the water offers the warmth of a campfire on a cool night, while the large rocks by the pond provide a quiet place to unwind.This unique four-season cottage offers many amenities for those who seek a quiet natural setting to unwind.
