A few words from our past guests. More reviews can be found on Trip Advisor.
My husband and I spent two nights at the Givingtree and could not have been happier. Chai and Andy were so welcoming and gave us tons of advice on where to go and what to do in the area. They saved us time and money by lending us maps to go cross-country skiing and gear to go snowshoeing in some pristine locations close by. We also chose to do a private couples yoga class which was very relaxing and set the tone for a peaceful rest of the weekend. No matter what time of the year, we highly recommend staying at the Givingtree Retreat and hope to go back again soon! -Cindy & Josh, Toronto ON
My wife and I had an incredible long weekend at the Givingtree and are already dreaming about returning again in the future! Chai and Andy are gracious and attentive hosts, with a great sense for creating a romantic and harmonious space for just us to enjoy together. The space itself is cozy, warm, beautiful and met all our needs and wants. We will definitely recommend to friends, and look forward to our next stay. -Matti & Risa, Toronto ON
I was so excited to have found a place that shared my ideals, one where I'd feel good about spending my money. However, they surpassed our expectations. The karma cabin was beautiful. Every little detail from the decor and the sheets and green magazines, to the wonderful yoga space, clawfoot tub and wood stove. I even found some nag champa and beeswax candles to create some ambiance for our nights stay. No frills, no tv, no wifi, just us and a great little space to share. The bed was comfy and the bath was wonderful! We will return and have already recommended the place to others. -Michelle & Matthew, Burlington ON
My boyfriend and I felt super cozy at the Givingtree and we definitely plan to return! We felt very much at home and appreciated the love put into taking care of the space. The cabin was rustic yet very comfortable. After a full day of skiing we enjoyed stretching on the yoga mats and relaxing by the fireplace. Catalina & Roberto, London ON
We just got back from our stay with Chai and Andy and I can genuinely say our time really surpassed my expectations! Chai is an incredible host and served the most delicious and beautiful breakfasts with an eye towards fostering local and healthy. We stayed in the cabin which was really clean as well as comfortable. We had a really nice time relaxing and playing board games, as well as wandering around the area and enjoying Collingwood and environs. Full recommendations - a lovely spot, wonderful hosts, and a great spirit. -Melissa & Gerry, Toronto ON
Thank you for such a warm and inviting welcome. From the moment we pulled into the driveway we were taken back with the beauty and serenity of the country setting complete with your early spring flowers starting to bloom. Very romantic. The room was very spacious, clean and holistically decorated. Even though we're pretty eco-friendly people, staying with you inspired us to other ways we could make a difference. Thank you Chai and Andrew for a wonderful stay at a really great rate. -Guy & Erin, Barrie ON
