Swallowdale Guest House

Set on Black Creek among woods and fields, Swallowdale is a serene natural sanctuary offering stillness for rest, nurture and renewal. The beauty of the expansive landscape, wildlife, gardens and star filled night sky invite a gentle realignment with the natural order. The gift of time to “stop and stare”, to be, walk, read and reflect supports spiritual, personal and creative work. We follow a century old tradition of Muskoka guest houses offering hospitality for those seeking the restorative gifts of nature. Swallowdale is artist run.

A private sunlit suite in the farmhouse provides sitting, bed and private bathroom, a study, kitchen facilities, private entrances and a deck overlooking Black Creek.
