Reset

Make time for a Reset. Increased urbanization, decreases in horticulture, deforestation, loss of bio-diversity and human dependence on information technologies, electronic devices and the looming meta-verse have increasingly created a widespread nature-deficit disorder while increasing anxiety, sensory overload and dysregulating nervous systems. A loss of contact with natural rhythms, including death and decomposition, contribute to a lack of understanding of natural processes in the human experiences, including the constancy of change, the cyclical nature of life processes and the patterns of connectivity which create and sustain life itself.

Transform

Dimensions retreat participants return home not simply with transformational experiences, but with a clear plan to sustain life improvements.

Getting there

Map + Location

Dimensions Algonquin Highlands
is located at:

1218 Canopy Lane,
Maple Lake,
Stanhope Township,
Ontario.

45° 06′ 22.48″ N, 78° 39′ 29.55″ W

Dimensions Algonquin Highlands can be reached from Toronto by car, helicopter or private air. Driving from Toronto via Highway 400 North with a connection to Highway 118 West brings guests to our door in approximately three hours. From Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport or Toronto Pearson International Airport, flight time to the nearby Stanhope Municipal Airport (CND4) is one hour. The Retreat spans nearly 16 hectares of woodlands, and is located in Stanhope Township along the shores of Maple Lake, at 1218 Canopy Lane. This forest access road leads south from the Township’s Airport Road, just 6 kilometres from the nearest community of Carnarvon and 20 kilometres from the larger town of Minden, Ontario.

Our lakeside Northern Ontario setting featuring rugged hills and an extensive network of forest trails is the optimal setting to observe the first signs of a Canadian fall and winter. Time spent with us off the beaten path will serve as an exclusive prelude to Dimensions Retreat’s growing curriculum and the opening of a global collection of several permanent Retreat destinations for deep healing and well-being.

Fees + Inclusions

Accommodation and meals are included in your rate. Accommodation in a private cabin includes all programmed activities and organic meals prepared daily to suit all dietary needs by Dimensions Algonquin Highlands’ Executive Chef Miriam Echeverria. These all-inclusive accommodations, amenities and activities are conducted by Dimensions’ staff.

Our Dimensions staff follow all regulatory guidelines and do not provide cannabis to our guests for their ceremonial experience. Retreat guests are advised to bring an additional $100 CDN for the procurement of cannabis for their personal local Plant Medicine use. We have developed professional relationships with local dispensaries. All cannabis purchases must be made in cash, in person, for personal use, and in accordance with local regulations.

For the optimal psychedelic experience, our team will guide guests in purchasing, measuring, and identifying the ideal strains of cannabis to vaporize the Plant Medicine. Our recommendations for specific strains of cannabis are key to the success of the Retreat experience. Every program held at Dimensions Algonquin Highlands includes the provision of guidance and education in making a psychedelic cannabis blend.

Accomodation

Reset in comfort from any one of our 17 private cabins. Our serene accommodations and thoughtful amenities allow for complete relaxation.

Dotting the edge of a forest or overlooking the water, our cabin suites each have a footprint of about 450 square feet. The cabins feel modern and forward-thinking while remaining rooted in their context and a sense of wholesomeness. Each interior is simple, luxurious and light-filled, with a window seat and private deck that encourage you to immerse yourself in nature, quiet your mind and rest your body.

Cabins

Forest View

Tucked under the boughs of majestic poplar, maple and oak trees, our 12 forest view cabins feel like hidden havens. Their traditional forms echo local architectural vernacular but are rendered absolutely modern through their cedar cladding, porches and minimalist detailing. Skylights and large picture windows fill each cabin with natural light and open them to late-night stargazing. At once minimal and sumptuous, our forest view cabins bring contemporary comfort to the doorstep of nature.
