Area Highlights

Welcome to 3133 County Rd 36 on the fringe of the beautiful village of Buckhorn. You can find this dream property on its own private acreage but still close to town (within walking distance) and all amenities. Closeby are some of the best attractions that Cottage Country has to offer including: Burleigh Falls, Petroglyphs Provincial Park, The Gallery on the Lake, Warsaw Caves and Kawartha Highlands Provincial Park. It is a quick and convenient drive to Lakefield or Bobcaygeon (> 20 mins), Peterborough (30 mins), Lindsay (45 mins) or Durham Region ( 1-hr). Truly the perfect place to "get away from it all", you will be surrounded by all that nature and life by the water has to offer.

Property Highlights

Close to all conveniences but tucked in its own corner of the world, this property truly has it all including the most spectacular view of the Mississauga River and the Kawartha Highlands Provincial Park. A large natural granite rock formation and mature trees out front help to create a naturally-provided element of privacy with all the conveniences of being close to a main road. Pull into the drive and immediately be taken in by the sparkling water views that stretch across the entire 2 acres that can be enjoyed from every angle of the property. With a large dock, boat house, sandy beach and fire pit there is so much room to roam, explore, adventure or just be. The winding river that flows around the property reflects breathtaking sunsets, provides some of the best swimming in the Kawarthas and is home to a wide range of fish species. A short paddle or boat ride up the river will take you into the Kawartha Highlands or change directions and ride the current into Lower Buckhorn Lake. Wildlife is abundant here all year round with frequent sightings of moose, deer, beavers, blue herons, otters, bald eagles (and many more) being commonplace.

The two all season cottages nestled on the property offer the option to takeover the successful, turnkey, 5 star rated airbnb business with Super Host status and over 200 raving reviews from ecstatic guests (@thehighlandscottages).


Step into the magazine-worthy 4000 sq. ft. main house; a mixture of log and stone construction that has been beautifully renovated. The oversized front entrance welcomes you with a crisp and clean look created by full-height board and batten wall paneling and newly tiled floors. The main-floor laundry room is spacious and includes plenty of upper and lower cabinetry, counter space and rinse sink as well as high-end, high-efficiency front load washer and dryer.

Original, rustic elements mixed with crisp and clean modern features can be found throughout this home including an exposed-log feature in the kitchen/dining area that is further complemented by the new high-efficiency corner wood stove. The newly renovated kitchen boasts solid wood cabinetry, quartz countertops and high-end stainless steel appliances. Enjoy incredible views of the water and luscious backyard greenery from the large kitchen window or the huge sliding doors that offer a walkout to the back deck. A formal sitting room and office nook are also offered on the main floor, as well as a simply luxurious (and newly renovated) bathroom that offers a floor-to-ceiling subway tiled shower, brand new fixtures/lighting and seating area.

Allow double French doors to guide you through to one of the supreme features of this home; the floor-to-ceiling log "Great Room". Truly a multi-purpose space; may you picture yourself here hosting many years of family gatherings, events or special occasions. Also the perfect potential space for a home-based business as it can be closed-off from the other living area and is accessible from the outdoors via the back walk-up deck. Other notable features in this room include: brand-new hardwood flooring, hardwood ceilings and a new high-efficiency propane fireplace.

Head on upstairs and find three generous-sized bedrooms and two bathrooms including a large master with walk-out to the upper deck offering another stunning view of the water and property. The master bedroom also boasts a freshly renovated en-suite bath with jacuzzi soaker tub, glass-enclosed shower (with double shower heads) and a solid wood vanity with double sink and quartz countertops.


"Cottage #1" is a beautiful and well-maintained all-season log cabin that provides 500 sq. ft. of living space, as well as 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, full kitchen and cozy living area. Special features include: wood stove, air conditioner, and a new high efficiency heated water line/water pump. Walk-out to the private back-deck from the sliding glass doors and enjoy all that the outdoor space has to offer including its own private fire pit.


"Cottage #2" can be found on the East side of the property and is the larger of both cottages offering 720 sq. ft. of all season living space, 2-bedrooms and a beautiful 3-piece bathroom. Cottage #2 has also been recently updated with a new high-efficiency heated water line/pump. It offers a statement-piece wood burning fireplace, air conditioner, private deck, and it's own fire pit.
