Five golf courses are within 15 minutes not to mention hiking and biking trails, live theatre, local artists studios, and white water kayaking.

In winter the Haliburton Highlands become a playground for snow based activities. Cross country skiing, skating, snowmobiling and ice fishing are available directly at the Resort while dogsledding, downhill skiing and snowshoeing and luge are nearby.

Spring and fall are ideal getaway times in Haliburton. Whether it is hiking the woods with trilliums lining the path or enjoying the brilliant fall colours, both seasons offer a special break from a busy life. Spring also brings great fishing, golf and maple syrup festivals. Fall has the Studio Art Tour, Hike Haliburton Festival and Ogopogo campfires on the crisp autumn nights.

"What a lovely weekend! Light snow falls followed by clear blue sky! Very romantic! We really enjoyed our little studio. The big highlight of the weekend was dog sledding with Winterdance at the edge of the Haliburton Forest. The landscape was pristine, just like we would see on postcards! Thank you for your good advice."

"Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday!  The cottage was great and the amenities top-notch. We were most impressed with your knowledge of the area and it's hot spots. Our days were all filled with great food and fun things to do. Please keep the ski area up and running, it is a very beautiful place to ski. Thanks again for making our honeymoon very special and memorable."

"We did it all! Dogsledding, snowmobiling, luge, wolf centre, Sir Sam's, Cross country skiing, ice skating, sleigh ride - and had a great time (and relaxed too). We hope to come back and visit and relax again soon. Thanks you for everything!"

"Thank you so much for providing such a beautiful place for our wedding. Your accommodating approach to your guests is incredible and our stay wouldn't have been so fantastic without your help. We hope to be back for our anniversary and to recollect memories and create new ones."
