Nestled in the forest you will find our charming private guest cottage. Unplug, relax and enjoy a true connection with nature. Also available, located steps from the cottage, is a wood fired dry Finnish Sauna. As Le Temps Perdu is exclusively yours for the duration of your stay its a perfectly private getaway.

The space
For those who want an authentic Canadian winter experience the charming guest cottage is the perfectly private cabin in the woods.

You will find a cozy living space, including an eclectic assortment of books and games. In the open plan arrangement there is also a well appointed kitchenette (small fridge, two burners, large toaster oven,and the wood stove makes cooking easy). If you have something to roast that is larger there is an outdoor wood fired oven and a Webber charcoal BBQ or if we are available you may pop it into the oven in the main house. Also supplied are dishes, utensils, pots, cast iron pans, dish cloths, tea-towels, dish soap and paper towels.

*The wood fired Finnish dry sauna is located just steps from the bath and cottage and is available for guests upon request. There is a 50$/hour fee. Robes and towels are included. Please schedule your session when booking the cottage.

The loft bedroom comfortably sleep two. Sheets and duvets are supplied. The mattress has been given some extra attention with the addition of feather mattresses. Let us know if there are allergies to consider and they can easily be removed.

The bathroom is located in the main house. It has a separate access and is exclusive to the guests for the duration of their stay. There is a rolltop bath with a European shower fixture with beautiful views to the forest. Tell us your taste in music and we will be happy to supply the sound track to a soothing bubble bath:)

The wood stove in the cottage will make your stay cozy and comfortable. We supply the fire wood free of charge in the winter months. For the other seasons the woodbox will be full upon arrival and the electric heaters will be the primary heat source. Each additional refill of the woodbox for those months will be an extra $25.

Situated on 88 acres, Le Temps Perdu allows for the rare experience of having such a large acreage exclusively to your self. In the winter Le Temps Perdu is a "Frozen" paradise within a UNESCO world heritage site renowned for its biodiversity (Frontenac Arch Biosphere). As animal lovers we encourage our guests to bring their pets along ( limit of 2) for the experience (pet sitting is available for a small fee).

Guest access
Le Temps Perdu offers the entire property for our guests' exclusive use and we invite you to explore the many opportunities on the property and in our surroundings for recreation and relaxation.
Guests will enjoy access to the entire 88 acres of natural landscape to explore. Nordic skiing (free), snowshoeing(free) or riding. We have 3 sport horses with international level 2 instruction available by Hermann (lessons start at 30$/ half hour).

Portable easels, chairs and wool blankets for those who feel inspired.Hot organic mint tea from our garden and home made treats make exploring all the more enjoyable. Ask us and we will put it together for you.

There are no places on the property that are off limits. Le Temps Perdu is our playground and it's always fun to share it!
Its yours to enjoy!

Other things to note
This area of Ontario has a rich history being one of the first settlement destinations in Canada. Many museums and architectural points of interests are within a short distance. The number of artists and artisans within a 25 km radius is astounding and the quality of workmanship is very high. Most studios are open to the public by appointment and we would be happy to guide you to some extraordinary shopping destinations.
As Westport is located in 2 UNESCO World sites, the Rideau Canal System and the Frontenac Arch Biosphere it is unique in all of North America for this reason. At Le Temps Perdu we strive to promote awareness and appreciation for both our historical and ecological environments.We try to maintain a current connection to the local cultural and environmental programs that our community has to offer and are happy to pass that along to our guests if they wish.

Location

Westport, Ontario, Canada

We love the tranquility and natural surroundings of our location. We are at the gateway to the Land o' Lakes region as well as minutes away from some of the most spectacular provincial parks in Eastern Canada allowing for access to pristine wilderness.
Westport a vibrant holiday destination (10 munites) and Perth voted prettiest small town in Ontario (20 minutes) are two wonderful heritage towns with great boutique shopping and a variety of dining options. After the fun of the busy summers, we enjoy the slower pace in the winter and take time to catch our breath and plan new adventures...we invite you to do the same.
Being an area rich in musical culture there are always a number of local venues showcasing a variety of talent.Classical, roots, country and more. Its all here!
For any information regarding events and points of interest we would be happy to provide as much information as we can find.If we don't know we will find someone who does:)

With a passion for nature and healthy living we believe that it is the simple things in life that make it beautiful. The combination of both of our professional lives is directly reflected in the way we approach the property... that and a good laugh. Our animals are our constant source of amusement and joy as well as the rich local music scene. Our property is our playground and we invite like minded adventures and dreamers to share a truly beautiful part of Canada.

During your stay
We are always on the property and are happy to accommodate our guests according to their wishes. We enjoy meeting new people but at the same time are sensitive to our guests' needs for quiet, privacy and relaxation.

At this time we are maintaining Covid protocols and are practicing social distancing and masking, when required.

We are asking that all guests coming from government designated Covid Red Zones use curb side pick up services provided by our local grocery stores. Kudrinco's in Westport offers this service either by phone or through their website. Also Barnaby's Independent in Perth offers curbside pick up through the Optimum Express platform.

As long as we are able to accept guests we will. We ask that those coming from Red Zones, for the sake of our communities, exercise the same health and safety protocols that are required in a Red Zone:
Trips outside of the home should only be for essential reasons (work, school, groceries/pharmacy, health care)
Families should not visit any other household or allow visitors in their homes.
Everyone should avoid social gatherings.

Our property is the perfect place to practice all the necessary protocols as our guests have the entire 88 acres to rest and regroup during these challenging times. Enjoy!

Your hosts,
Tracey and Hermann
