If you appreciate the feel and comfort of beauty and comfort in tandem, you will love this chalet! You are surrounded by its palpable relaxing vibe, and gorgeous ambiance “ahhh – insert deep breath here” the moment you hit the driveway. Natural landscaping greets you amidst ample parking.
You arrive at the front door, enter the kitchen and main space which houses the sitting room with expansive ceilings and overlook from above. The main floor holds two bedrooms and one bathroom.

Waterfront (south side of property): 75 feet
Sandy beach – about 15 feet
Shallow wading directly in front of cottage, best swimming is out in the lake
Although the Trent Severn is a weedy water zone, the weeds are controlled by using screens and constant maintenance. The waterfront is managed seasonally and the ability to utilize the water is vast. Our family utilizes the water front to wade, and float and enjoy the beauty of the surroundings. When waterskiing and diving is preferred, a short kayak or boat ride to the deeper areas is recommended.
Water shoes not needed
Private – vast, tall trees create privacy barrier to neighbours/other cottagers on both sides
Cottage waterfront faces south
Large property with lots of room to move around and enjoy the beauty of Kawartha Lakes
Wood is available at $10 per night fee. Notice is required so piles can be dropped off and prepared.
You are near the quaint towns of Bobcaygeon and Buckhorn featuring the famous Kawartha Dairy, Kawartha Lakes Art Gallery, Bigley’s Shopping, Sandy Lake Beach and more. Sandy Lake Beach is a short drive away and is excellent for children of all ages. There are numerous golf courses in the area.
Spotlessly clean , really appreciated the fogging. Jennifer was wonderful to deal with and responds quickly to any questions. —Jaci K. (Aug. 2020)
This is a stunning, professionally decorated ‘glamping’ chalet. Everything is perfectly clean. The style is casual elegance. The chalet is very spacious and well equipped with pretty much anything you could ask for. (I think I was missing a rubber spatula but you know, this is a small detail!) It is actually MORE beautiful than the photos. The owner is very responsive to questions and has a lot of local tips to share. Locally made cupcakes were available when we arrived, okay? This is not roughing it. Ideal for people who appreciate a place and like lots of amenities. Our whole party of family and friends all adored it. I cannot think of one thing I would have changed. The owner was open about the lake being a weedy one but this did not in anyway impact our visit. We went out on the paddleboat and kayak and we understand there are sandy beaches nearby. But to be honest, the place was so darn nice we just stayed there almost the whole time! But the nearby villages of Bobcaygeon and Buckborn are also worth the visit. We will be back! Thanks Jen!” –Kerridwen H. (July 2019).
