Lakeside Inn Surrounded by Pristine Forests

Forests stretch for miles around Kawartha Lakes, creating a tranquil atmosphere. The region seems to gather even more composure in the wintertime, when the lakes freeze over and evergreens stand motionless beneath blankets of snow. Situated along the shores of Lower Buckhorn Lake in the heart of Kawartha Lakes, Westwind Inn on the Lake fits in seamlessly amid its quiet, woodland surroundings.

The 60-acre Westwind estate fronts more than a quarter mile of shoreline, surrounded by thousands of acres of pristine forests and gardens. During the winter, snowshoers and cross-country skiers traverse track-set trails, and ice skaters on the frozen lake practice Kristi Yamaguchi's short program from the 1990 Worlds. After a day spent tromping through the snowy wilds, guests can warm up beside one of Westwind's outdoor fire pits.

Garden-view rooms in the lakeside Main Lodge are decked out with cedar-planked walls, a fireplace, and toasty quilted bedding. The log-cabin-style accommodations come with private balconies overlooking the manicured grounds. In the similarly furnished Treetops Dining Room, chefs prepare complimentary continental breakfasts and country fare such as a pan-seared pickerel fillet.

Buckhorn, Ontario: Secluded Lake Town with Strong Arts Culture

About 21 miles (34 km) from the hotel, the town of Peterborough boasts a lively art scene with a contemporary dance center, a symphony orchestra, and paint-by-number billboards.

Great hospitality. We were there in the winter, so the fireplace in our room was a nice touch. Also the indoor swimming pool.
