Reconnect with nature in style and sophistication at Whispering Springs Wilderness Retreat, Northumberland County’s first luxury glamping experience. Situated deep in the rolling hills of Shelter Valley, just 1.5 hours east of Toronto, Whispering Springs Wilderness Retreat offers all of the charm and comfort of a boutique hotel nestled within the Canadian wilderness.
A portmanteau of glamour and camping, glamping is an elevated wilderness experience that removes the discomforts inherent to traditional camping while still allowing individuals to enjoy the great outdoors and connect with nature.
At Whispering Springs Wilderness Retreat, it has been our goal to preserve the quintessential camping experience, with a few deluxe upgrades. Lounge by the fire in our rustic and lodge-inspired guest pavilion, or explore 200 acres of pristine wilderness, from dense old growth forests to stunning vistas of Lake Ontario and Northumberland County. Our elegant safari tents, with private ensuite washrooms, allow you to feel connected to nature without compromising comfort and convenience. With picturesque amenities and unique accommodations, at Whispering Springs Wilderness Retreat you will find a refuge from the stresses of modern life, a place to reconnect with the natural world, and a return to simplified living. Prepare for a new way of experiencing the great outdoors. King-sized beds instead of sleeping bags, mood lighting instead of flashlights, and a wine glass instead of a canteen – this is camping like you’ve never experienced.
