 Solstice Retreat






Sleeps 12 (Main Cottage and Bunkie), Hot Tub, A/C, WiFi, Flat, Child/Elderly Friendly, Golf Haven, Sandy Beach, Walk-In Entry, Water Trampoline, Tree Swing, New Large Dock, Pet Friendly (TBD)

The view of Buckhorn Lake is spectacular. The cottage is situated off the main channel so you don’t get the waves from the large boats yet can still watch them go by. The lakefront of the cottage tends to be very calm and is great for all boating activities. We are within walking distance to Six Foot Bay Golf Course that has a wonderful restaurant if you don’t feel like cooking after a hard day of playing.

Buckhorn is always bustling in the summer, and generally has different activities going on, especially on long weekends. A calendar of events is available in the cottage. There are many fishing derbies for adults and children. Restaurants in this area are fantastic. Once again, we will have a binder of all this information located in the cottage.


The cottage home was absolutely perfect for our family of 10. Everything about this home was top notch! Many fabulous family memories were made. We are so thankful that the owners chose to share their beautiful home with us. ♥ —Suellen G. (Aug. 2020)


This was an awesome vacation in the most wonderful cottage by the lake. The cottage was extremely comfortable with every modern convenience you could need. The hot tub was an excellent way to relax of an evening. The lake toys – canoes, paddle boards etc were great fun. I would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage to anyone who wants a relaxing vacation in the most wonderful location. —Paddy H. (July 2019)


Our family of 5 adults, one 2 year old, and one dog stayed at the beautiful “Solstice Retreat” on Lake Buckhorn in June 2018. The property was exactly what we needed for a week away, and there were so many amazing elements that we didn’t expect! Well stocked with games, including a shed filled with lawn activities (we even had a mini badminton tournament!), beautiful modern upgrades, and very cozy furnishings. There was also a ton of space for our family and having two bathrooms was also a bonus! Ken and the team at Kawartha Cottage Vacations were a dream to coordinate the rental with. They were very accommodating and responsive. Would definitely book again!  —Alexandra E. (June 2018)


We have had a great week and the weather has co-operated.  My little grand kids loved the sandy beach and swimming in the lake. You have a beautiful property and we loved our stay here. You do have great neighbours and they helped us with information about the area. —Cathy B. (July 2017)
