☆ You've Arrived ☆
At Evergreen Forest, we strive to make your getaway a success. That means providing you with the information and contacts that are best suited for you. The Bruce Peninsula offers an enormous variety of things to do, an impossible list to complete on any one weekend. If your interests are in a particular area, we can suggest an itinerary that fits your time and budget. We specialize in providing logistics for group getaways (even groups of 2). We make sure that your time is well-spent, without wastage due to bad directions, long lineups at attractions, or parking problems.
☆ Girlfriend Getaways ☆
The Evergreen Forest offers fun 2-night Girlfriend Getaways for 3-10 women, providing a memorable time for special friends. We know that girlfriends want to do things together, perhaps new and different activities. We strive to tap into your natural inquisitiveness, and make full use of the magnificent wilderness that surrounds us. Our accommodations are excellent for girls getaways, since our rooms occupy an adjoining, private building, and offer separate beds and private bathrooms. It's a great opportunity to reconnect in your own "group space", free from distractions and the workaday world. All rooms share a common walk-out deck, making socializing easy and fun. A very private lounge is yours to use 24/7. Our rooms are all oversize, and double occupancy is very comfortable. Ask us about hammered jewelry classes at a local shop. We recommend booking 2-3 months in advance, so that the rooms of your choice will all be available.
☆ Lure of the Trail ☆
Hiking is BIG up here! Starting on our own property, you can venture forth to ever farther destinations, and go deep into the wilderness. The Bruce Peninsula is blessed with some of the finest sections of the entire Bruce Trail. There's more true wilderness here, and many stretches of rugged, remote beauty along the rough spine of the east side of the peninsula. Just 15 minutes away is the Bruce Trail-Skinner's Bluff, featuring lots of spectacular views of Georgian Bay, from high up on the escarpment cliffs. Dense forest often gives way to open, panoramic viewing areas, where the distant Georgian Bay horizon blends water and sky. We can help you plan your day, and suggest an appropriate shuttle service if you need one.
☆ Snowshoes = Fun! ☆
A highlight of your winter getaway can be the simple joy of snowshoeing. The Colpoy's Heights hike is pure pleasure, with lots of spectacular views of Georgian Bay, from high up on the escarpment cliffs. We have a wide range of snowshoes available for your use, if you don't have a pair of your own. Winter treescapes on the Bruce Peninsula are magical. After a snowfall, a wondrous transformation occurs: the tree boughs now stand crisp against the sky, and bend under their load, hushing the passage of sound. Experience the ethereal feeling, as you walk among these silent sentinels, that you have transcended mere mortality. The Bruce Trail waits for you, with some of the finest sections in Ontario within a few minutes of Evergreen Forest.
