Welcome to The Big Dipper and The Little Dipper on Bald Lake Narrows. Our cottage is in the Kawarthas close to Pigeon Lake with great swimming, boating and fishing. Enjoy the beautiful views and reflections in the water. The cottage has 240 feet of lake frontage with two huge decks and a dock to sun tan the days away. If you like to fish, you have come to the right place. We have enlarged the dock to fit a 24′ boat on one side, and swimming room and ladder on the other side. The Big Dipper and Little Dipper Cottages are connected with a hallway and are located on Bald Lake Narrows between Pigeon Lake and Big Bald Lake, which is part of the Trent-Severn Waterway System between Bobcaygeon and Buckhorn. You can boat to Bobcaygeon, Fenelon Falls, Stoney Lake and other connecting bodies of water. Many visitors enjoy the fishing experience here right off the dock!

Cottage was well maintained, all of us had a great time swimming, bbq, watching stars at night. The owners were helpful especially arranging for a boost for one of our cars. Overall had a pleasant experience. -Chetan V (Aug. 2018)
We stayed at Big Dipper/Little Dipper in mid August. It was great for our families as there were enough bedrooms for all of us to sleep comfortably. The kitchen was well appointed and it was nice to have the 2 living areas. Sitting on the upper deck was lovely and it was fun to use the kayaks and canoe. There was lots of parking. The beds were comfortable. -Karen (August 2016)
