'The Lily Pad' - This delightful cottage is located about 5 minutes from the village of Buckhorn on Lower Buckhorn Lake/Deer Bay. Despite it's relatively small 800 sq ft size, the spacious open concept design and extensive windows leading to a magnificent view give it a spacious feel. The kitchen/living/dining areas have vaulted pine ceilings and are modern and up-to-date with comfortable furnishings. Outside, due to the orientation of the cottage on the lot and the hedge cover along one lot line, there is a good degree of privacy. The cottage is located directly on the shoreline and features a spacious deck with excellent quality outdoor furniture. You'll also find the fishing to be very good right off the dock.

"The deck surrounding the cottage was awesome. We loved being so close to the water to watch the boats, skiers, seadoos, fishermen, kayakers and canoers.Many thanks to the owner who has gone out of his way in supplying everything you might need to make sure you enjoy your stay...including a bottle of wine. We felt very fortunate to be able to share a great cottage in such a beautiful spot."

"the cottage was great, we had a boat but caught a lot of fish right from the dock"
"It was wonderful!The deck, the dock and the kayak were inviting and relaxing and the living and dining rooms are spacious, warm and cozy. "
"The pictures are an exact replica of the cottage. We really enjoyed the large deck and the closeness to Bobcaygeon is great!"
"We had a great time at the cottage. Everything was as expected - including the perfect weather!"
"It was a beautiful cottage with a beautiful waterfront view. Large deck overlooking the boats, great island view, birds and so on was amazing. Overall, it was a great cottage. Next year we'd like somewhere with a long beach. We were able to walk the roads around this cottage, but prefer to walk on beaches such as those on the Great Lakes. The Cottage Country Travel Services were excellent. Certainly the best and most professional cottage booking I've done."

"When we arrived at the cottage it looked exactly like the pictures and the rest of the cottage was even more than what we expected. The cottage is absolutely beautiful! I was amazed by how clean the cottage was, including the bathroom, it was spotless, which was wonderful. It was very cozy, warm and inviting. What more could you want when you have your own beach, a paddle boat, a dock, a hammock and a beautiful patio, it is a dream cottage.
We are so happy with the choice we made with this cottage and we would surely come back again. We are hoping to do so next year given that it is available. We were lucky to find it and we want tthe same experience again.
We really want to thank you for making this possible. This cottage has left very fond memories in our hearts. The cottage and everything that came with it couldn't have been more perfect. It has created lasting memories and wonderful pictures to remind us of our time there."
