Imagine a place where the hustle and bustle of city life fade away, replaced by the tranquillity of the countryside. That's exactly what we found at Thunderbird Farm, just a short 1.5-hour drive from downtown Toronto. Our girls' cottage getaway at this hidden gem was nothing short of magical, and I'm excited to share our experience with you!



A 73-ACRE PROPERTY WITH A LUXURIOUS FARMHOUSE

Nestled on a sprawling 73-acre property, Thunderbird Farm is a private and luxurious farmhouse that exceeded all our expectations. With five bedrooms and five bathrooms, there was plenty of space for our group to spread out and relax. The farmhouse itself is a fully renovated 1800s gem, offering modern amenities alongside its rustic charm. But what truly sets Thunderbird Farm apart is its unique farm accommodations experience. As an indigenous-owned and operated family business, Thunderbird Farm provides guests with the opportunity to host events and immerse themselves in farm life while enjoying the scenic views of farmland, forestry, and a tranquil creek.





The 3-storey farmhouse at Thunderbird Farm boasts modern amenities and rustic charm, providing a cozy and luxurious retreat for guests. With five bedrooms and five bathrooms, it offers ample space for relaxation and rejuvenation.


The carriage house is a hub of entertainment, featuring a bar, ping pong table, pool, darts, and other games for endless fun. Meanwhile, the century-old post and beam barn serves as a breathtaking venue for events, with tables, chairs, lighting, and optional decor available for weddings and other celebrations. Additionally, guests can enjoy the romantic outdoor space, perfect for nature retreats and peaceful getaways.





Endless Entertainment

Our weekend at Thunderbird Farm was filled with laughter, adventure, and unforgettable moments. From hosting a Brigerton-themed dinner to a late-night pink pyjama party, every moment was infused with joy and camaraderie. We indulged in a fully catered brunch by Bagel World Bakery, complete with fresh pastries and a beautifully decorated grazing table, followed by a relaxing afternoon in the hot tub with bubbly wine. One evening, we ventured into Lindsay, Ontario, for a delicious dinner, but the highlight of our trip was undoubtedly our play day with the farm animals. From alpacas and Pygmy goats to baby doll sheep, chickens, and turkeys, we relished the opportunity to interact with these adorable creatures and even help out with their care.
