Why owner/property manager chose Buckhorn

This is a spacious, comfortable and elegant home to be enjoyed inside and outside. The entrance to the lake is perfect for children and the docks offers a unique view to the lake and waterfront experience. The house is surrounded by trees, water, birds, ducks and natural light. A fire pit is available at the back of the house (close to the road as fires are forbidden close to the house) and the deck is perfect for a BBQ and family meals. There is also a gazebo if you want to enjoy being outdoor and avoid mosquitos!

2:15 hours from Toronto downtown. Buckhorn town is 10 minutes away with all you need and Peterborough 30 min away if you need more.

Great cottage for large families!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Big Bald Lake. With 8 adults in total, we never felt like we ran out of space. The views from the common room were awesome! Marcelo promptly answered our questions. The cottage was very well stocked!

We rented a boat and jet ski from Buckeye Surf in Bobcaygeon (approx. 25 min boat ride). We did have to be mindful of the rocks and shallow waters returning to the cottage.

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great week at this cottage on Big Bald Lake this August. There were 8 of us (6 adults and 2 kids) and we had plenty of room - there was room for more! We really enjoyed the large deck overlooking the lake where we ate most of our meals. The kayaks, canoe, body boards that were there got lots of use by all of us! Access to the water was great for the kids as you can walk into the shallow area beside the dock. The screened in gazebo was perfect in the evenings and early mornings when the bugs were out. We didn't use the gorgeous fireplace that runs between the dining room and living room, as our weather was warm, but this would be a really lovely feature for cooler days - would love to come back in the Fall to enjoy it! Everything we needed (grocery store, LCBO, a few restaurants) were all a short drive into Buckhorn - very convenient. The amenities in the cottage were great for a large group like ours - dishwasher, washer and dryer - it just made everything easy and relaxing. And we really appreciated how helpful the owner was providing us with info about the property and answering our questions. I would highly recommend this place and we would definitely go back!
