Our Beautiful Land
Our 400 acres of forested property invites visitors to appreciate the beauty and wildness of the natural world. There is a myriad of wildlife in the dense forest, meadows, beaver ponds, creeks and small lake that make up our Kinmount Retreat property. Deer are often seen roaming the property seemingly unfazed by retreatants, and the occasional moose or bear may wander through. Wolves can often be heard howling at night or in the wee hours of the morning. The groundhogs can often be seen from the windows of the dining room eating their dinners while retreatants eat theirs. In the spring there are baby animals of all kinds roaming with their mothers and rare birds stop at our feeders on their journey back north.
Numerous hiking trails traverse the property and there is a main road that runs from the front to the back of the property. Access to Union Lake can be gained from here using our canoe or kayak for those experienced enough to use them safely.
As you can see in the video montage below created by Lama Karma Tsundulp Lodro, the Dharma Centre is a welcoming setting for refuge and realization.
