Willow Ridge Retreat is a small family operated business. We make our year round home next to our year round Willow Ridge Retreat. We love living here and are excited to share this privilege with you.
We love it, we live it, we invite you in it!
Amenities - Off the Grid Accommodations!
Willow Ridge Retreat offers a unique experience of living off the grid at 62*N with conscious thought of our environment. Guests may be pleasantly surprised how comfortable living with renewable solar and wind energy, supplemented with mechanically generated power, can be. Guests will be invited to participate in energy and water conservation, composting, and recycling. The guesthouse is fully equipped with running water, flush toilet, and shower. Guests need only bring their own food supplies and personal items. All bedding is provided. The kitchen equipment includes a medium sized fridge and a full sized stove with oven. The main guesthouse has 5 bedrooms, and can sleep 10 guests; there is also a small cabin beside the main guesthouse which can sleep 2.
Total Immersion in the Great Outdoors
Surrounded by ice, rock ridges, northern boreal forest, and the vast starry skies during extended dark nights in winter, Willow Ridge Retreat is the perfect place for watching the Aurora Borealis, skating, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, dogsledding, or having afternoon tea in a canvas tent on the lake ice.
Surrounded by lake, river, rock ridges, northern boreal forest, and the vast blue skies, under our midnight sun in summer, Willow Ridge Retreat is the perfect place for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, pedal boating, or bird-watching.
Surrounded by rock ridges, northern boreal forest, and vast skies in all seasons, Willow Ridge Retreat is the perfect place for trekking through backwoods trails, photography, reflection, writing, drawing, reading, building and strengthening relationships, resting, soul seeking, absorbing beauty from surrounding nature, and always: wonder.
