Book Club “Retreat” at Limberlost Forest Reserve
A couple of weekends ago, Mr. Nice and I headed a few hours north of Toronto to Muskoka “Cottage Country” to spend time with our book club friends. I think you will love my photos of the amazing place where we stayed. It is an idyllic location every autumn lover would dream of.
Here in Toronto, the autumn colours are showing their loveliness. But north of the city, in “cottage country”, the fall colours have been spectacular since late September. Friends in our book club rent a cottage / lodge every year the weekend before the Canadian Thanksgiving at the Limberlost Forest and Wildlife Reserve near the lovely town of Huntsville, Ontario. This 3000 square foot lodge is a very spacious with SEVEN bedrooms and is on Buck Lake! Buck Lake Lodge is the ONLY cottage on the lake. Needless to say, the location is spectacular.

The Good Friday Book Club is comprised of 4 married couples and 3 ladies whose husbands don’t care to participate. So seven bedrooms was just perfect. The common area is large and spacious and the kitchen is well equipped which is important to this group of literary “foodies”.
The decor has some very cool lamps made of birch logs and an elk head on the wall.
In the common area the dining table is so PERFECT! And so is the view!
Let’s get outside!
Can you spot Chester, my fur baby, and his little nose between the rails, wondering what I am doing?
Around Buck Lake
There is a trail in the woods, near the lake’s edge encompassing the lake.
No more words are needed.
By the way, we really did have a book club meeting and the book we discussed was Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood. In this first book of her trilogy, the world she writes about is as far away from this idyllic setting you could possibly get!
I hope you enjoyed your visit to Limberlost Forest and Wildlife Reserve and the sampling of photos I have shared.
