Enjoy slow living with all the comforts of home.

Cozy up in a refurbished 1800’s hand hewn cabin with board and batten addition. With a pellet stove, a wood burning stove, claw foot tub, cedar sauna, and the serene Saugeen River rolling by beyond the trees, you’ll want to put your feet up & stay awhile. Spend your days visiting rescued farmed animals at our on site vegan sanctuary – join in for chores or just enjoy the happy vibes the animals bring. Your stay supports the sanctuary – thank you!


The Space

We are home to 64 rescued animals and operate a vegan sanctuary! We’d love to introduce you to them and our daily life caring for them or leave you in full privacy to enjoy the tranquility of the property and surrounding area. It’s entirely up to you! Let us know your expectations, needs, and plans. We will do our best to ensure you truly enjoy your time at Karuna Lane.

Guest Access

Because animals are unpredictable, we do ask that you only visit them through the fence, unless we are on site. We will gladly introduce you to them!

Your cozy retreat awaits.
