Host Review Score

Fabulous custom built colonial-style farmhouse sits on 59 very private acres beside the Rocky Saugeen River. Traverston Retreat offers an elegant escape from the hustle of daily life. The home, built by the owner and host, replicates many historical features such as wide-plank flooring and country Canadian antiques. Walk the grounds or sit by the 2,600 feet of dramatic river frontage. Relax or entertain from any of three large living / dining areas – two with wood-burning fireplaces. A fully equipped kitchen with a rustic wooden island leads to an expansive south-facing porch with a table and two lounge areas. You can enjoy countryside views from each of the spacious and light-filled bedrooms. An easy walk through a forest leads to the river. Just outside the historic Traverston ghost town and the beautiful Traverston mill, the Retreat is off Grey Road 12 which runs west out of Markdale. Enjoy year-round entertainment. The Beaver Valley Ski Club is just a 20-minute drive, snowmobile trails intersect with Traverston Road, the Bruce Trail lies 15 minutes away and Grey County features eight waterfalls. Or buy fresh maple syrup from a Mennonite farm.
