Tucked away in the idyllic forest of Bobcaygeon, sits a multi-prong structure that looks a bit like a landed spaceship. It's the Octopod—a cabin built of upcycled shipping containers. Interior designed by HGTV's Rebecca Purdy (DIY Disaster etc.) If you enjoy the outdoors, this property is great for hiking, swimming and spotting wildlife. We've seen moose, deer, foxes, bats, turtles big and small, frogs, fisher cats, beavers and birds of all kinds from wild turkeys, snowy owls, blue herons to goshawks. Newly built in 2015 and perfect for all seasons use. Your private swimming pond, private lake and 140 acres to wander this is the ultimate getaway from the city. Each season offers a different experience. Located on the snowmobile trail, during winter you can snowmobile, cross country ski ...Tucked away in the idyllic forest of Bobcaygeon, sits a multi-prong structure that looks a bit like a landed spaceship.

Autumn is covered in leaves, spring is maple syrup time and then there's summer!More
