This Dreamy Lakefield Heritage Barn is the Perfect Zen Lakefront Retreat

Melissa Nagy and Greg Earle were searching for a new home and they knew two things for sure: they wanted to be immersed in nature and they also wanted to create a retreat space that they could share with others. When they found their lakefront property in Lakefield, Ontario – which also featured a time-worn barn – they saw plenty of potential. With the help of friends and family, the couple transformed the property’s more than a century-old barn (which they call “The Nook“) into a peaceful, multi-functional cabin escape filled with modern touches, DIY details and lots of love.
