With its eclectically designed interior, you will feel like you are on safari circa 1880. Totally off grid, this solar powered secluded oasis provides a setting unique to any solid structure, a natural setting that provides a humbling experience year round with wood fired fireplace, Afghan rugs, and comfy retro furnishings.

"Andrew created the best experience we could have ever hoped for and we had the pleasure of meeting his friend Mack who only added to the joy of our stay. No one should pass up the opportunity to stay in such an incredible place with the most serene views and warmth in every corner. Whether you are looking to get in touch with nature or simply to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, this is the place you need to be."
This was my second year in a row staying at Andrew's place. Absolute peace and serenity with water views in every direction. This time he had a Yurt waiting appointed with period antiques, beautiful lines and soft lovely lighting. Camping at its most glamorous! See you next year Andrew!
What a treasure! We were looking for a quick anniversary getaway and the Belleisle Bayview Retreat was just what the doctor ordered. The apartment was spotless, the yurt was romantic and the wood-fired sauna was completely unexpected and such a treat! Andrew was highly responsive, Mack was beyond welcoming and we will definitely be returning, hopefully when we can spend more time there. Highly recommend it!
