If you are looking for a getaway to a beautiful lake and the boreal forest, and love the convenience and luxury of an amazing cottage,  check out Lakeview Cottage at North Buck Lake!

This gorgeous house is on North Buck Lake, in Athabasca County. It’s about 2 hours 15 minutes from Edmonton and 2.5 hours from Fort McMurray. The lake is surrounded by boreal forest, with trails, campgrounds and beaches all around.

It’s also 15 minutes to Boyle, where you can stock up on groceries, fuel and pizza! If you visit Boyle on Thursdays from 3 – 6 pm, you can check out the Boyle Farmers’ Market for goodies and artisan crafts! Fridays during the summer, the local Co-op hosts fundraiser BBQs during the lunch hour. You can grab a burger to support a community cause and stock up on groceries too!



“At Lakeview Cottage you’ll be greeted by calming views of the water & six comfortable bedrooms for a good night’s sleep.

The wraparound deck & backyard firepit are perfect settings for your morning coffee or evenings spent roasting marshmallows. The game room has a pool table and shuffleboard for game nights.

Enjoy our kayaks, paddle boards, peddle boat, and ice fishing shack when available. Our side of the lake is calm, while the larger side has sandy beaches to explore & create memories.”




Enjoy all-season access to the lake and activities! North Buck Lake is ideal for watersports and fishing in the summer, and in the winter, ice fishing and snowmobiling. There is a golf course at nearby Skeleton Lake and paintball is about 15 minutes away!

If the weather isn’t great the cabin has wi-fi, games and an entertainment centre. You can get cozy in front of the wood-burning fireplace and watch a movie or read a book.
