DUE TO COVID-19 REDTRICTIONS, WE ARE VERY SORRY TO SAY THAT WE HAVE MADE THE DIFFICULT DECISION NOT TO OPEN BUDDY'S RETREAT OR BEAVERWOOD COTTAGE THIS SEASON. IT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE TO SANITIZE EVERYTHING FROM CUTLERY TO KAYAKS IN OUR TURNAROUND TIME. OUR GUESTS' SAFETY IS OUR PRIME CONCERN. WE LOOK FORWARD TO WELCOMING YOU NEXT SEASON. TAKE CARE, Cathy Buddy's Retreat is a dog-lovers' cabin on beautiful Coe Island Lake about 20 minutes from Bancroft, ON and just over an hour from Algonquin Park. It is available for a minimum stay of 3 nights at $225 + tax per night and $1395+ tax per week. This cabin is newly built and finely appointed. Plush towels and bedding are provided. It is wheelchair accessible. Excellent well water, screened porch, ramp, gated wrap-around verandah for your dog...

Excellent well water, screened porch, ramp, gated wrap-around verandah for your dog/s safety, propane BBQ, wood-stove, ceiling fans, moveable kitchen island and lots of movies are available to borrow for a rainy day or a cozy evening. There is great swimming in crystal clear water and a canoe, kayak and rowboat are available. Your 'Northern Getaway' awaits you! Listen to the loons while sipping your morning coffee or watch the sunrise down on the dock or snowshoe across the frozen waters over to the islands in winter or just enjoy the night sky at the small campfire pit on the rock. Buddy's Retreat is close to all amenities, art galleries, theatre, spa, museums, restaurants, tea house, local shops, parks, etc. Hope to welcome YOU soon to Buddy's Retreat.More

My boyfriend, our little dog and I had the BEST time at Buddy's retreat! The cabin itself was extremely clean and looks brand new, even the wrap around deck/balcony and outdoor furniture were spotless. Cathy and Genny are fabulous hosts and couldn't be more accommodating....More
