FULL DETAILS

Named after the iconic Canadian folk songstress, Joni Mitchell, this intimate wilderness retreat provides a quiet place to escape amongst 77 wooded acres in the hills of Pakenham, a historic rural community on the edge of the Ottawa Valley. The cabin sits between a high valley ridge and a quiet forest, perched above a meandering bubbling brook offering a tranquil atmosphere sure to recharge and refocus you.   Explore the leisure trails this unique property has to offer through rolling hills, maple groves, creeks and natural artesian springs. Spend a day exploring the more expansive hiking trails in the area and the historic villages of Mississippi Mills nestled along the Mississippi River. For the craft beer enthusiasts... visit Cartwright Springs Brewery on the main road of our property for a personal tour of their operation and for samples of their delicious artisan spring beers and maple porters.     Joni cabin offers a clean, minimalist, rustic and open-concept design with modern amenities and lots of windows and light to bring the natural beauty of the outside in.
