Going to the Buffalo Farm up near Mattawa not far off of Highway 11 has always been on my bucket list. The allure of being able to stay in a yurt with the smell and warmth of a wood burning stove floating through the circular structure has always appealed to me. This cozy Airbnb is perfect for a stay anytime of year, but there is something really unique about being there in the winter time. I was really excited for what would end up being an incredible Buffalo Farm winter engagement session.
Amy and Kyle showed up shortly after I arrived doing a similar drive from their home in southern Georgian Bay and were excited to start their exploring this Airbnb property. The Buffalo Farm is home to a yurt, tipi and cabin which we had access to all three throughout the weekend. We headed over to the beautiful large circular yurt that backs onto the buffalos field where you can watch them explore. Amy and Kyle snuggled up on this blustery winter day by the wood burning stove to stay warm as the wind whipped around the cabin. The yurt is very spacious inside with the coziest couch where the natural light pours in, a beautiful skylight that brights the room, and so many places to relax and enjoy the beautiful of the yurt and the entirety of the farm. We decided to brave the cold as the sun began to set to get the dreamiest of golden hour photos outside of the yurt and wood cabin. It was definitely worth braving the cold for this incredibly cozy Buffalo Farm Winter Engagement session.
Do you wish you could have photos taken at a cabin or cottage, but don’t have access to one? Renting an airbnb is the perfect solution and it also can turn your engagement or lifestyle session into a little getaway as well.
