Highlands Nordic Farmhouse

Prices are from $30 to $40 per person for 2 nights.

The Farmhouse is up in the Collingwood area. It’s also directly connected to the Highlands Nordic ski centre, so you can walk out the door to go skiing or snow-shoeing. We also get a reduced rate for trail fees, so don’t forget to mention this at the desk where passes are sold.

The farmhouse has a total of 18 places, 7 in the large common loft area. It also features a large kitchen, with a cool pantry to store some things. The extra large kitchen table serves as the common meeting area. Bedding is provided, but bring your own towel, etc. There is also a sauna inside.

The nearby restaurant, Mylar & Lorettas can be booked for those who care to go there (for 7 PM Saturday). Some people just like to stay back at the Farmhouse for both dinners. Most people like to go there Friday afternoon so check with your ride.

Please download the trip application here.

Signup forms are available for download (see above).

Please mail in the fully filled out and signed application form, with your preferences, starting on Decemeber 1st.

Include a cheque, or payment can be done via Interac Online (payment link with exact amount will be provided on request).

Decemeber 15th is the final day to sign up, as we need to commit to rooms at Ecolodge. However, you can try later, to see if there is still space available.

The club facilitates passengers looking for rides. A list of drivers, willing to take passengers, will be compiled and distributed to those members looking for rides. The onus is on the passenger to find a ride, not on the Trakkers Weekend Trip coordinator. It is important for individuals who use their vehicles for carrying passengers to have adequate Third Party Automobile Liability Insurance.

Why the new process? Our weekend trips fill up so fast that many members miss the chance for a weekend trip experience. We hope it makes things better. Your patience is appreciated and your feedback welcomed.
