Come, create, laugh and be inspired!

Welcome to this Chalet Style Cottage located in the heart of Balm Beach. Just 90 minutes north of Toronto and 15 minutes from the towns of Midland and Penetanguishene. Forest Road Retreat was created to bring Quilters, Crafters, Artists, Yogis and Creative Groups together for relaxation, creativity, and sharing of techniques and ideas.

The chalet has been renovated into a four-season cottage, with four bedrooms, three bathrooms and is ideal for up to 10 creative people. The main floor has an open-concept living room, dining room and kitchen where everyone can gather. The atmosphere is relaxed and the decor is unique with one of a kind items that inspire creativity. What sets this retreat apart is the separate studio space designed with high ceilings, natural bright light and plenty of LED lighting and electrical outlets. There are 5 work tables, 10 ergonomic chairs and a counter-height cutting table with a light box inside. All designed with quilters, crafters and artists in mind.
