 The Hidden Gem






The Hidden Gem is privately located between Buckhorn and Burleigh Falls on 5 acres of private forest with a river running through it. Set back from the road, you find yourself in a fairytale setting, starting with a lovely tree-canopied drive that opens onto The Hidden Gem. It is a spacious and inviting cottage with walls of windows affording stunning views of nature on both levels. Relax outdoors on your choice of wrap around deck – either the screened in main floor with BBQ and hot tub, or the upper level with door access to the cottage and walkouts from two of the bedrooms. A set of stairs connects both levels for easy passage between them. For those cool nights, use the fireplaces on the main floor and in the master bedroom. Nature lovers will enjoy the walking trail and river, or play some basketball on the outdoor garage “court”. For evening relaxation, settle in at the fire pit – an excellent spot to marvel at the night sky while taking in the night sounds of nature.
