Property description

15 min from Bridgewater, this group accommodation has 3 private apartments and gorgeous common spaces. Guests have access to 21km of trails in a magical old growth acadian forest, 4 acres of permaculture gardens, canoeing, on-site hosts.

Juniper Lodge is the primary facility for groups at Windhorse Farm. It sits on a hill overlooking the farm, as a kind of gateway to the forest. Since it’s completion in 2007, it has been the centre for hosting many group retreats, health, wellness and leadership programs, celebratory events and family gatherings. As an overnight accommodation it can sleep between 17 to 20 people in its private apartment quadrants and loft spaces, which radiate out from the communal center living room and kachlofen that heats the building in cooler months alongside the in-floor radiant heating from solar power.

To the East of the common-area is a beautiful, bright gathering space with Windhorse Wood floors that can comfortably accommodate 30 people. It can be used for discussion, yoga, meditation, dancing and more. Adjacent to this space is a galley-style kitchen, appropriate for food preparation for large groups, and a small dining area that can accommodate about 15 people.

For larger dining groups, The Pavilion is an elegant timber-frame and cob building next to Juniper Lodge. This sunny space connects directly to the kitchen and can seat 40 for meals, or simply serve as a separate meeting room.

Juniper Lodge is fully furnished. The kitchen is fully stocked: dishes & utensils, kettle, coffee-maker. Linens and towels are provided.

This facility is on the grounds of Windhorse Farm, a sustainably managed 200-acre old-growth Acadian forest with 21 km of trails, a wood product business, and a 4-acre organic permaculture garden. There is a canoe and a kayak that guests are welcome to use, as well as a sauna. An on-site farmer offers in season produce for purchase.

Interaction with Guests
The farm operates out of a central office where on-site hosts are available daily to answer any questions and to point you to all the magical spots on the property (unless you'd rather find them yourself!).

The Neighbourhood
Located about 15 min from Bridgewater, 25 min from Lunenburg and 30 min from Mahone Bay, you can explore all the beautiful spots on the South Shore from here easily. We love visiting La have (25 min) for the legendary bakery and Petite Riviere (20 min) for the local wines.

Getting around
You will need a car or a bicycle. We are 1 hour drive from Halifax and 1h 20 min from the Halifax airport.
