Barefoot Retreat is recently renovated with completely new bathrooms, central air conditioning and brand new furnace. It is located on the Trent Severn Waterway, which is great for boating and fishing. Six Foot Bay golf course is minutes away, which also has a great restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Buckhorn has many activities through the summer months. Check out the farmers market every Tuesday morning at the local community center. At the cottage you will find a 48’ dock that is strong enough to hold a large boat. The beachfront yard is very large and flat for playing games or relaxing under the trees for those hot days, but also has lots of sun for the sun-seekers. A 7-person hot tub is located on the lakeside for those relaxing evenings with a beautiful view of the stars or those cooler days to enjoy the view of the lake.

It was exactly what we expected and we were not disappointed.—June O. (Aug. 2019)

The cottage was very clean and there was much space available to put your belongings. All the appliances worked as they should and everything was very neat in the cottage. I especially liked the back outdoor lighting when taking my dog outside at night to relieve himself. The small beach was very helpful for landing our kayak and the paddleboat. The hot tub was very nice to use during our stay. It was a very good experience. — Brian S. (July 2019)

The cottage was lovely and well laid out. It had everything we needed. Having the water cooler was great. The tv and satellite package were wonderful. The decks are great and it was good to have both the loungers as well as the outdoor couch. The grounds were spacious and flat. Great for children and seniors. The water was clear and warm and and had a shallow entrance that got gradually deeper. The bottom was a little rocky and was covered in something and there were lots of small shells so water shoes are necessary. The dock was solid and great for relaxing. —Anne-Marie V. (July 2019)


The cottage was wonderful. Spacious enough for 4 couples, three of which have toddlers. The owners were great to deal with. —Cindy K. (Oct. 2018)
