Welcome to The Wilson Family Cottage on Lower Buckhorn Lake, in the beautiful Kawarthas! This traditional family cottage lives like a resort compound with multiple unique and individual indoor and outdoor living areas. Enjoy the natural landscape of pine trees and exposed Canadian shield as you relax with family and friends.

The cottage is situated on Lower Buckhorn Lake at the mouth of Deer Bay river. The gentle flow of the river provides for great fishing right off the dock! Explore the Trent Severn Waterway and the Kawartha Lakes with access to hundreds of kilometers of pristine boating, world class fishing, and epic canoe and kayaking.

The cottage has parking for six - driveway, roadside, and overflow across the road. It's hidden from the road and is accessed via a staircase over a large section of exposed Canadian shield. It boasts a two bedroom main cottage with two bunkies.

The main cottage has a beautifully renovated and modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances including microwave and full dishwasher. The livingroom/diningroom has indoor dining as well as a stocked digital entertainment system with hundreds of movies and TV shows, a 46" flat screen TV, a Bose Sounddock (Original iPod dock connection or aux a/v cord), and a record player - new in 2018! Bring your vinyl!!! :)

Both bedrooms have queen beds and large closets. The bathroom has a spacious stand-up shower. The cottage has lake fed UV treated drinkable water and is on a septic system. The system works wonderfully, but as with any cottage water system, it is fragile and must be treated with respect.

We spent three wonderful night's over the Thanksgiving weekend at the Wilson Family Cottage. The cottage was perfect for our family gathering. The sunroom is amazing but unfortuenly a little chilly at this time of year. We made the best of it anyways and just bundled up. The kitchen had everything we needed to make our turkey dinner. The lights on the property were certainly a nice touch! Overall very happy to have gotten to spend the weekend with our family creating memories. Thank you Josh for everything.

Diana - I'm so happy you had a great Thanksgiving at the cottage! The temps were a bit chilly that's for sure! I hope you bundled up! :)

Thanks for staying!

Our first visit to the Wilson's Family cottage and likely will not be our last. Rest assured the cottage and two bunkies exceed the description in the listing. The cottage is well equipped Everything was in excellent working order. For us we quickly found out that the 'great' room was certainly that. The ability to lounge out play games or read and feel like your outdoors while remaining inside was a bonus. Swimming in the creek was superb and Josh has provided all kinds of water craft to paddle around. Josh was a pleasure to deal. He responded to all our queries in a timely fashion. We thoroughly enjoyed our week.

Anthony - Thanks so much for staying at the cottage and I'm so happy that you and your crew enjoyed it! Hope to have you again! Enjoy the rest of summer!

Absolutely amazing cottage. We have booked here two years in a row - and each time it has exceeded our expectations. Clean, roomy, amazing dock and the outdoor/indoor 'Great Room' has created dining memories with friends that will last a life time.

We absolutely love this cottage - the dock is also beautiful and a perfect place to relax without too much noise.

Would highly recommend.

Justin and Amira - thanks so much for returning this summer! I love having your group and the vibe you bring to the cottage! See you next year!

A few weeks have gone by and I'm still beaming about my stay at the Wilson Family Cottage! It was originally selected for it's ability to facilitate my summer training needs. It provides perfect accessibility to roadside running, cycling (to Peterborough and back...an easy 80km shared with courteous drivers) and the swimming is perfection with slow moving warm water. (Did I train much? Nope! It was hard to tear myself away from the dock, the lake and the comfortable muskoka chairs!! Actually, I did get lots of splashing in.) The kitchen is modern and well lit which makes it a dream to cook in. (Pots, pans, cookie trays and even a proper casserole dish are available!) The rooms are spacious and for those travelling with children as I did (not mine), there are TWO outside bunkies should you want to escape some night time crying or daytime tantrums. Evenings were spent either on the dock, on the patio deck or in the beautiful Kawartha room. There are so many places, on various levels, to enjoy the beautiful scenery! The Kawartha Room is amazing and likely my favourite part. Spacious and fully screened in, it provides you with the nature, fresh air and views of the outside but with the comforts of the inside. Awesome surprise...the cupboard above the fridge was filled with boardgames! (Guess Who? and Connect 4 for the win!!) This amazing place also seems to be a reflection of it's owner whose excitement and warm hospitality came across in each email exchange.

Kevin - what an amazing review! I'm beaming after reading it! :)
Thank you so much for choosing our cottage! I'm so happy to hear you loved the place and I totally understand that you are still dreaming about it - I can't WAIT for my time there later this summer!

All the best to you!

Josh

We stayed at the Wilson Family Cottage for a long weekend and had a perfect time. As friends who have been renting cottages together for 10+ years we all agreed this was our favourite one. There is something for everyone to enjoy - and the thoughtful touches like tons of digital movies and board games, kayaks and canoes to use and plenty of separate areas for everyone to lounge out or explore made this cottage a hit!

Jane, I'm truly proud that our little getaway was a unanimous favourite for you and your guests! We love it too! Looking forward to hosting you again sometime - have a great summer!
