Follow us!


Bird’s Hill Hideaway has a fully equipped kitchen with oven, stovetop, microwave and all the pots, pans and utensils you need to prepare gourmet meals during your holiday. But we recognize that sometimes it it fun to let someone else take care of dinner. So we thought we would list some possibilities. The main destinations for food + drink in Buckhorn are listed below. Bobcaygeon, about a 30 minute drive west on Route 36, also has some decent choices in restaurants.

If you are wondering about groceries Foodland is on the way into Buckhorn on the east side of Buckhorn Road (Route 23). The L.C.B.O. (Wine + Liquor) and the Beer Store are both right beside the Buckhorn Welcome Centre on the east side of Lakehurst Road (Route 37).
