WINTER AT FOXWOOD IS WARM AND COZY
A choice of cottages for couples or families.Treat yourself to a stay in Snowshoe, a new solar eco cottage featuring almost 1400 sq ft of luxury living space and a see-through fireplace.
Imagine snowshoeing at night, stopping to sip a cup of hot chocolate with stars twinkling above and moonbeams casting shadows through the forest. It’s a Foxwood tradition that owner’s Rob and Julia Wallace love sharing with guests. Nature is everywhere; you’ll see deer, wild turkeys, hear owls and maybe the call of a wolf in the distance.
Snowshoe or cross country ski out your back door …complimentary use of snowshoes are included. Downhill skiing, dog sledding or snowmobiling are nearby.
Winter rates as low as $50/night per person.
So relaxing, so perfect!
WHAT'S THE WEATHER ON LAKE OF BAYS?
Check out what's happening with a view from the webcam located on Bigwin Island which overlooks the golf club. Foxwood is about 1 km looking in the other direction.
GOLF THE BEST
Enjoy one of Canada's top golf experiences on Bigwin Island or any of the 7 other great golf courses in the area. Bigwin is just outside your door when you stay at Foxwood . Golf Digest earlier rated it as the "Best New Golf Course in Canada". Score magazine labeled it "Best Par 4, Best Par 5 in Canada". Whenever you book a stay at Foxwood during spring or fall we'll include, with our compliments, a return water taxi service right to the clubhouse.
|COTTAGES FOR SUMMER 2014 ARE BOOKING NOW|
Summer 2014 is booking up quickly however there is still space remaining. The Availability page on our website will show you what we have still open. Chinook, our new straw bale cottage, is amazing and guests have raved about it. Like Snowshoe cottage, which we built as a solar powered cottage 4 years ago, Chinook is eco-friendly and was built using straw bales - it's leading edge and a shining example of "green" design. Chinook is our largest cottage at just under 3000sq ft with 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a Muskoka porch and a huge living space. Check out our BLOG to get updates and photos. Our website has more details too; call soon at 866.919.3933 if you would like more info or to make a reservation for this year or for 2014.
First Chickens - Now Bees and a Garden!
We introduced a new flock of twelve laying hens this Spring. They are always popular, particularly with the kids who often helped to gather the eggs. And there is nothing like fresh eggs for breakfast! We are also beekeepers having started our first hive 4 years ago. Ask for our amazing honey next time you visit. Our organic vegetable garden started a few years ago, and in addition to our strong emphasis on recycling and building energy, eco friendly cottages we also offer composting.
Out of the Lake, into the Sauna...
Our waterfront dry sauna is ready and waiting. What a treat. It can be an invigorating experience to take a refreshing dip in the lake during fall or spring and then follow it up with the cleansing sensation of a hot sauna. Wow!
