Your chance to feel like a million dollars in Maggie’s Haven, the 2017 Princess Margaret Lottery Home, only a 2 hour drive from Toronto to beautiful Kawartha district. This well-maintained and spacious lakehouse (2,378 sq ft) is privately situated on Upper Buckhorn Lake in the town of Lakefield/Selwyn, only minutes away from the Trent Canal locks in a tranquil and relaxing setting.

Maggie’s Haven is fully furnished, professionally decorated and naturally landscaped. Year round paved access to this 1 acre property affords activities of your choice. Fishing rods available, free-standing hammock, 2 bicycles, and 2 kayaks with paddles. The L-shaped deck at side and back of lakehouse faces the waterfront. Breathtaking views of the lake and surrounding islands with fantastic evening sunsets. Solar lights take you down to a dock where you can relax in a Muskoka chair while marveling at the night sky. Or perhaps you feel like curling up in the rocking chair or on the love seat bench on the front porch.
