Water Forest retreat is a very private 144 ft.² electrified and heated cedar octagon next to a brook on 100 acres of forest with a pond, waterfall, marsh and hiking trails. Cozy up in this quiet comfortable space while listening to Goldmine brook while you sleep. Fire pit, heated outhouse with composting toilet, outdoor dining area, brook, pond and trail head are just steps away. We also have a TREE HOUSE and HIKER’S HAVEN house by the brook.

“I don’t even want to write this review because I selfishly don’t want too many people to find about this place... but everyone should have the same opportunity to experience this absolutely incredible stay. Nancy and Bert are the kindest (and coolest) hosts I have ever met. Every detail of our stay was personal and thoughtful. My boyfriend and I have been quarantined with my family of 6 for months now and we just needed time away. We spent 6 nights in the Octagon and it was the best trip of our lives. The living space was totally able to accommodate us for the week, and the nature trails, campfires, hammock, creek, etc. made it so that we were never bored. If you need time to disconnect, relax, and get in touch with nature but still need some modern conveniences, don’t even hesitate, just book the stay. I recommend the Octagon, just because it’s the most private in my opinion, but I have no doubt that Nancy and Bert have made the other two spaces just as magical. I know I’ll definitely be visiting again.”

“Shannan maintains a very clean and comfortable space for both travelers with and without kids. We visited without kids but wouldn’t hesitate to return with our children. She is very helpful, made great recommendations for local activities and restaurants and communicated clearly and always responded quickly to questions. Her personal touches were perfect. We loved that she made sure there were snacks available, as well as coffee, tea and got chocolate. The fridge was stocked with milk and cream for coffee as well. She even delivered freshly baked muffins to our kitchen. Amazing experience all around!”
