Bloom Holistic Retreat will be your lakefront home away from home. Located on 681 acres of pristine boreal forest, it offers unparalleled comfort in an environment of unbuttoned luxury. The kitchen at Bloom follows a farm-to-table food philosophy that makes every meal at the communal tables truly memorable. Meals are vegetarian and we can accommodate most dietary needs. Swim in the lake, forest bathe, bird watch, hike on 25 kms of groomed trails, or visit with the herd of Highland cattle that roam free on the land—do it all or do nothing at all. Your retreat includes accommodation, all meals, and yoga instruction.
