Lotus Loft is a stunning petite beauty, charming both inside and out, a perfect destination for relaxation. This transitional mid-century/modern cabin offers 360 degree views as far as the eye can see in a private setting, and offers all you need. Cottage yes, but fully equipped and upscale on an amazing lake that affords the feel of comfort and beauty in tandem.

Clean and pristine, 150 feet of beautiful waterfront. Decking runs almost the entire perimeter of cottage. Patio for dining and BBQ. Swim or fish right off the dock or go a bit further out, into Catalina Bay, perfect for paddling watercraft. Enjoy the best of both worlds – head to town (2 minute paddle to shore or 5 minute drive) or savour this zen retreat surrounded by water and nature. Once you get to the island – you won’t ever want to leave. It’s a complete decompression zone!

Although not large, exponentially you get a lot for a little – truly a gem. In our opinion this cottage doesn’t hold a candle to many of the “mansions” around. It has all you need in one perfect little package to get a taste of Buckhorn, and all that Trent Severn has to offer.

You will love this bungalow! You are surrounded in a palpable relaxing vibe, and gorgeous ambiance “ahhh – insert deep breath here” the moment you step inside. Natural rock landscape greets you from the water. You arrive at the front door and enter the open concept main room – a full sitting room with a quaint and beautiful cabin style vibe. The main floor is 600 square feet and houses all including the bedroom and bathroom. The charming kitchen is fully equipped and has a killer lake view.

Bathroom: 1 x 3 pc (sink, electric compost toilet, shower-lake water)

Cottage water: from lake – bring your own drinking water

Indoor entertainment: TV, DVD player, board games

Kitchen: equipped with fridge, stove, microwave, kettle and crock pot


Parking at Catalina Bay (1 Parking Permit – please advise if bringing a boat as a boat slip will need to be reserved)

Docking – 2 spots for boats off main docks

Access to island is by water taxi and/or paddleboat provided (100 m from boat launch) ….. please advise

Child/elderly friendly – sloped from waterfront below main house as built on rock base. Flat bungalow style cottage with a few steps to all main docks and decks.

Docks: large dock at water’s edge at entrance. Second and third docks at sides and rear with an additional balcony deck off master bedroom.

Water is 6-10 feet deep at the end of the dock – can vary

Deck runs almost full perimeter of cottage – can enjoy the ambiance of the surroundings and interior rain or shine.

Waterfront: 150 feet around

Island cottage so “Rock and Dock”, no beach

Best swimming is out in the middle of the bay, not at lake’s edge

Can be weedy depending upon the year. Our family utilizes the water front to wade, and float and enjoy the beauty of the surroundings. When waterskiing and diving is preferred, a short kayak or boat ride to the deeper areas is recommended.

Great fishing

Kayak, paddleboat – 1 of each

Private – no direct neighbours although there are cottagers surrounding the island as it is located in the middle of the bay.

Beautiful view – overlooks the bay which is generally the quietest part of the big lake with mostly only cottagers, floating, swimming and or fishing on this waterfront.

Wood is available at 10$ per night fee. Notice is required so piles can be dropped off and prepared.
