Minnow Bay is a beautiful cottage with ALL the comforts of home! With windows spanning the full main floor, it is bright & sun-drenched! You will enjoy the cotton-candy sunrise from the main floor and your master bed each morning. It's nestled on 1.67 acres with space to find comfort, relax, play & connect. You'll find new furnishings, bedding, mattresses throughout and decorated in a boho aesthetic. Families will find so many extras available & every detail considered. Visit our IG!

Where you’ll be

Lakehurst, Ontario, Canada

One of the best parts of Minnow Bay is how private and secluded it feels. Mississagua Lake and all of the Kawartha Highland Lakes are known for their fresh, deep, not weedy, clean water with excellent boating and fishing including small mouth bass and lake trout to name a few. There are 7 lakes in this chain of lakes so if you are renting a boat or bringing your boat you have LOTS TO EXPLORE! We also have a kayak and SUP available for your use!

Minnow Bay is surrounded by large trees on all sides, on a quiet cottage road, awesome swimming with a floating platform at the mouth of the bay for kids and "big kids" alike as well as a lovely new dock with boat bumpers and swim ladder. There is lots of play space and the property is very easy to find off the main highway. It is just a 15-minute drive to Buckhorn with all amenities such as grocery store, bakery, LCBO, restaurants and hardware store. If you're in need of a more particular item, all big box stores/chain restaurants are only a 45 minute drive to Peterborough. The nearest fire station and OPP station are less than 2km away and the marina is walking distance or a short 3-minute drive where you can pick up necessities like milk or eggs and rent canoes, paddle boats or a 14' boat.. You can also visit the Mississagua River on Buckhorn Rd where you can purchase an Ontario Parks pass (online) bring your tube (or buy one at Home Hardware in Buckhorn or Buckeye Surf in Bobcaygeon) and take a ride down the river!
