Welcome to the Wee Butt 'n' Ben


Sadie Baillie and Jimmy Smith invite you to enjoy some Scottish Bed and Breakfast hospitality while you explore Lakefield and the Kawartha Lakes district.


Wee Butt 'n' Ben's spacious grounds are conveniently located in the village, a short walk from the Otonabee River and Lake Katchewanooka.


Take a stroll along the Otonabee, the Trent-Severn Waterway link between Lake Katchewanooka and Rice Lake.


If you're headed for the shopping district, first you'll cross the navigation channel, then the main river; finally the hydro station race.


Unless, of course, you decide to turn off onto one of several side trails, which lead you the onto the dam itself or the Lakefield Trail, which winds along the river to the Lakefield Marsh..


The Marsh is a 'Provincially Significant Wetland', and you may see Ospreys hunting, turtles basking, or a huge assortment of other wildlife.


We offer three extremely comfortable bedrooms, and first-rate traditional cooking to get your day off to a hearty start.


Visit the Christ Church Community Museum, and learn some of Lakefield's fascinating literary history. From Susanna Moodie and Catherine Parr Traill to Margaret Laurence, authors have long had an affinity for the area, and that history is commemorated every July in the Lakefield Literary Festival.


There are some other suggestions for things to see and do on our 'See and Do' page.
