Mantario Living

Monday, August 5, 2024 to Friday, August 9, 2024

Let your week be filled with your favourite things - whether that be yoga on the dock, blueberry picking, or enjoying the sauna followed by a refreshing cold plunge in the lake. Pat and Val look forward to taking you hiking, canoeing and exploring the area or give you time to sit back and relax with a book on the deck or enjoy card and board games. There is something for everyone in this magical place and we look forward to sharing it with you. Open to adventurers young* and young at heart. 

*Families with children 8 years and older are welcome. Those under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. For questions, please contact
