You don't have to drive far to have this serene view of the Assiniboine River and whole the guest house with private trails through the forest. Enjoy a year-round retreat in nature less than 200 km west of Winnipeg, just south-east of Brandon, Manitoba. Enjoy barbecuing outside on the deck or using the firepit. Come in winter, to curl up by the woodstove after some snowshoeing or cross-country skiing. A healing retreat for individuals, couples or the entire family in a very well-equipped home. A mix of antique and country style, with hardwood floors, and an open kitchen-dining room for the best visiting. Some equipment such as snowshoes, sleds, skates and cross-country skis available on prior arrangement.

Stayed only 4 nights at this clean and comfortable cottage and wish I had been able to stay longer. I remember the Treesbank Ferry (where the cottage is situated) from my childhood with great fondness, and was delighted to find the cottage for rent at that location. Sheila and Ray were terrific hosts, and I enjoyed vegetables from the garden...

Our family stayed for a whole month in this cozy house. The host family made our stay very comfortable and offered their assistance for anything we may have needed. The house was very clean and spacious for our family of four. The property was gorgeous with a view of the river from the deck. There were lots of trails to...

About the neighbourhood
We are located on a farm at a historic river crossing known as the Treesbank Ferry or Clark's Crossing. The farm has been in the Clark family for six generations, and your host loves good stories about the pioneers of the area. Come here and enjoy the view of the prairie, like stepping into the past of Manitoba. We have private trails that you can enjoy year-round and we are close to Spruce Woods Provincial Park and Brandon Hills for more groomed trails. Snowmobiles can access a connector trail here to join Tri-Lakes Trailbusters trails and the Sprucewoods Snodrifters trails, giving them hundreds of kilometres of riding. Our house offers free use of snowshoes and a toboggan. There is a beautiful new waterpark for families to enjoy in Wawanesa, only 15 minutes away. Also there ar... more
