This well-maintained and spacious lakehouse (2,378 sq ft) is privately situated on Upper Buckhorn Lake in the town of Lakefield/Selwyn, only minutes away from the Trent Canal locks in a tranquil and relaxing setting.

Maggie’s Haven is fully furnished, professionally decorated and naturally landscaped. Year round paved access to this 1 acre property affords activities of your choice.

We had a great week at Maggie’s Haven. Four families shared the cottage and there was plenty of room for everyone. The kids enjoyed having the upstairs loft as their space to relax and play games. The owners provided lots of amenities such as outdoor and indoor games.Sara M. (July 2019)


The cottage was exactly as described. We were 10 guests and there was more than enough room for everyone.The kitchen was fully stocked with all the tools you would need. Long dining table fit everyone. The hot tub was perfect. Hammock by the water was a popular option all weekend, as well as the kayaks. We will hopefully be booking again next year! Thank you for allowing us to stay at your wonderful property. We enjoyed ourselves very much! —Andrea A. (June 2019)


We had a great time at the cottage. It is absolutely beautiful and spacious! Great for kids too! Everything we needed was there and available to us hassle free. —Stephanie B. (Dec. 2018)


The cottage has all the necessities for a large group. The outdoors are also fantastic. Lots of amenities, and the hot tub is a nice touch. —Lionel C. (Sept. 2018)
