As far as I know, years ago I was the first to find this site and add it to another database online which I am no longer a member of. I'd be interested to see if another member that still lives in this area would confirm the status of this site.

Talava was a religious retreat that belonged to a Toronto based Eastern European church. Ultimately, because of financial difficulties caused by tax policy adjustment, the entire place became abandoned. When I found it, it was an abandonment seekers dream, with at least 5 cottages easily accessible in varying states of decay. As this was years ago, I lost some of the photos of the event that I used to have.

I am attaching some photos I took, which are not of the greatest quality due to my lack of experience in photography at the time. There are also two snips of data concerning the site.

The location is near Alliston (now New Tecumseh), just off the Nottawasaga River and Talsi road. 1.

I've been to this place a couple times and each time got absolutely REAMED out by one of the residents still living there lol like absolutely shredded. Might be worth mentioning that it's down a private road and theres still a good few folks that call some of the cottages home!

But I think that last picture night actually be a fresh one. I don't remember any of them looking that nice! That's actually a really beautiful shot, too.

Good info here too! Some of this I've been able to find some of this but that's awesome you were able to find the specific church that started it.

Anyways I wouldn't suggest going inside the big weird A-Frame at the top of the hill (shot 5). Lots of dead animals...or well more like mush at this point, but ya.

I'm surprised it's still standing. I never approached it from the main road it's on (cool guy glasses emoji) I always parked at the top of the hill on the line that runs near it, then I'd just hike down into it. Avoided eyes that way.
