A century home above a vegetarian restaurant and yoga wellness centre in the quaint town of Thornton, just a few short minutes from the city of Barrie and the lakefront.

Private room with its own shower and sink, or a semi private room also available with bunk and single beds. There are yoga and Pilates classes in the wellness centre yoga studio, an infrared sauna for relaxing and cleansing, an on site massage therapist, and nutritionist who can help guide you with juices, smoothies, and deeper cleansing programs if desired. The restaurant below serves mostly vegan, vegetarian, and 100% gluten-free meals, it is licensed and offers a selection of organic wines and organic GF beers. There is a small outdoor patio with umbrellas to enjoy the outdoors while you dine.

We have two spare his and hers bikes for guests to borrow during their stay. There is a beautiful walking trail nearby, spa and salon, ice cream shops, variety store, and a sweet small town feel. There are a few beaches nearby, a smaller one one within ten minutes and the huge beach of Wasaga is about a 25-30 minute drive. Cottage country and the famous Algonquin park are within easy driving distance away.
