About Timber House Resort Hotel
Brighton’s Boutique Hotel
Timber House Resort is a boutique hotel in a tranquil woodland setting adjacent to our vintage trailer park and private sand beach in Brighton, Ontario. We built our beautiful post and beam building in 1998. We have 9 guest rooms, with common rooms, an outdoor pool, a sand beach and picnic area. We offer spectacular event and banquet spaces. Licensed areas include our great hall, glam tent and patio areas.
Guests can freely access our convivial common room and dining loft which includes a guest kitchen for casual meal preparation should guests prefer staying in rather than going to nearby eateries for evening meals.
Our grounds are well-tended and clean, with charming gardens, tall swaying trees and nearby wetlands and beaches teeming with wildlife and birds.
The atmosphere is laid-back and quiet. The relaxed setting encourages connection but allows for space and privacy.
We cultivate a ‘best of both worlds’ atmosphere that delivers the privacy and comfort of a hotel with the relaxed home-like nature of a high-end Bed and Breakfast. Our guests find this duality a welcome and refreshing change.
Overnight guests come from all points, locally and beyond, with many Quebec and international visitors. Many return to experience the unique aspects of the locale and our offerings in different seasons. Our facilities are great for multi-night stays.
Hotel Gateway to Prince Edward County
Close by are the wineries of Prince Edward County, the tranquil landscapes of Northumberland County and the beaches of Sandbanks and Presqu’ile Provincial Parks. We’re located strategically at the entrance to Prince Edward County closest to Toronto in a truly unique setting featuring epic views and crystal clean sand beaches surrounded by tranquil woodlands and wetlands. We offer an authentic local hotel experience that delivers the best of Prince Edward County and Northumberland County in one package.
The Timber House Resort is a project of Dave Dingle and Michele Walkau. Opened in 1998, the hotel is part of a larger property that operates as a vintage park model trailer park and we are adapting into a year-round eco-cottage resort.
Chef and Jill of all trades, Lucy Johnston is the core of the Timber House Resort kitchen, and the reason your food is so yummy. Lucy started helping the Timber House 5 years ago and is the center of our kitchen operations, keeping all the delicious flavours coming on any occasion. Integral to the first class Timber House Resort culinary experience is Lucy’s skill at managing complex dietary needs for large banquet groups and events.
Lucy also curates our lovely garden areas, creates our extraordinary preserves, sustains the look and smooth operation of our facility, and all the while, mentors, trains and directs our kitchen, front-of-house and house-keeping staff.
