A Celebration of Fall and sharing the "harvest" of what we're growing and creating with nature in Pinawa!


We’d love to have a crowd to see our piece of paradise. We’re proud of what we do and we’d love to show it off  to you!


Find out why we've fallen in love with our little corner of Pinawa and why we want to share it through our mindfully guided retreats, Play and Stay Get-Aways, and customized events to suit you or your group's needs.


Here are some of the things you can do at our open house:

  • Take a tour of the house, the amenities and surrounding area to see if it may be the place to enjoy your next personal or group event, whether it's a work team, friends, or family.

  • Take a walk or ride a bike on the Trans Canada Trail, starting right beyond our backyard.

  • Explore the more rugged hiking trails starting at the Pinawa Suspension bridge.

  • Munch on your lunch at the house or along the shore of the Winnipeg River (pack your own and a few snacks and tea will be available).

  • Speak to Patti about the different types of offerings and what might be possible to meet your unique needs.

  • While your in the area, check out the Old Pinawa Dam Provincial Heritage Park.

  • Just relax and enjoy the comfortable spaces, whether it's inside or outside. Take some time to unwind, play and enjoy a beautiful fall day in a natural setting!


Hope to see you there! Please invite others who may also be interested in learning more about our retreat and play space.

The Nurtured by Nature Retreat and Playhouse is located in Pinawa Manitoba, along the shore of the Winnipeg River and on the edge of the Whiteshell Provincial Park, where prairie meets forest. It is only an hour's drive from the perimeter of Winnipeg and offers the perfect space to be nurtured by nature, for self-discovery, recovery and re-creation. 


Exit Winnipeg going North on Highway 59.


Shortly after passing Birds Hill Provincial Park (about 8 kms) take the Beausejour exit on Highway 44 East. Travel on Highway 44 East, by-passing Beausejour, past Seddon’s Corner until you reach Highway 11. 


Turn left and travel north on Highway 11 until reaching Higway 211 ( approximately 5 -10  min ).  Turn right on 211 and travel approximately 14 km’s to reach Pinawa. 

For the most scenic drive to the Playhouse, take the last exit into town turning right on Willis Drive,  passing the golf course and the boat launch. Turn right on Alexander Avenue, then take the first right onto Tupper Place. We are #6 . Park in the driveway to unload.


Total distance from Winnipeg (East Perimeter) is 103 kms and travel time is approximately  1 hour and 10 minutes.
