Indigenous cultures often possess a deep understanding of the interconnectedness of all living things and the significance of coexisting in harmony with the natural environment. By spending time in nature, individuals can reconnect with this understanding, as well as with their own spirituality, sense of self, and connection to the environment.
Pine Creek Retreat's natural setting is specifically designed to allow individuals to disconnect from the daily demands and distractions of modern life and reconnect with the natural world. Immersing oneself in nature can promote mindfulness and present-moment awareness, reduce stress and anxiety, and foster feelings of calm and tranquility. It can also provide a sense of belonging and connectedness to something greater than oneself, resulting in a powerful and transformative experience.site map

Pine Creek Stopping House
The Pine Creek Stopping House is a one-and-a-half storey log house originally built in 1908. This designated provincial historical resource was originally used as an Inn, general store, post office and social gathering area for the region. It features a steeply pitched gable roof, wrap-around veranda and one-storey lean-to addition at the rear. A modern wing with extra accommodation, great room and wood burning fireplace were added in the early 1990s, and now serve as part of the Pine Creek Retreat facilities.stopping house
