We’re on the heels of the most popular season for an off-site corporate retreat: spring. After a lengthy, frosty winter, many corporations choose to take a well-deserved, albeit brief, break from the office. Many of the most desirable corporate retreat venues near Toronto lie in the Haliburton Highlands, straight east of Muskoka and south of Algonquin Provincial Park. This serene, secluded region is close enough to the office parks in and near Toronto but also far enough off the beaten to provide relief from busy schedules, log-jammed traffic, and high-stress situations. Here at Sandy Lane Resort, we specialize in off-site meetings, retreats, and corporate team-building. We can accommodate anywhere from a small group of directors to a company-wide, 150-person corporate outing.

Unlike most corporate retreat venues in the region, your team will enjoy swift access to a commercial kitchen, on-site catering, a meeting hall, and unique cottage-style accommodations, as well as free use of all recreational facilities. Again, we’re incredibly flexible about the meeting space. You provide the vision, and we’ll nail down the details. Thanks to free Wi-Fi throughout the property, it’s easy to conduct several hours of corporate business with the subtle waves of Halls Lake as your backdrop.

Potential Team-Building Activities

As you know, every boardroom, team, and department is different. Coming up with a team-building activity that satisfies every employee is quite challenging. However, Sandy Lane Resort’s various recreational possibilities allow businesses to split into groups and truly unplug, unwind, and rejuvenate in the wild. Below is a list of potential team-building activities and exercises that are bound to foster creativity, synergy, and composure.

This eclectic mix of accessible team-building activities makes us one of the best retreat locations in Ontario.

Group-Friendly Haliburton College Rentals

Sandy Lane Resort didn’t evolve into one of the premier corporate retreat venues in the province overnight. We’re dedicated to continuously enhancing the corporate business experience by adding new technologies and catering services in the meeting hall, while also growing a list of complimentary recreational rentals. The resort itself boasts 16 distinct cottages, all of which are a short stroll from beautiful Halls Lake, the meeting hall, and, of course, seemingly endless backcountry acreage. These are the only Haliburton accommodations to feature a wood-burning fireplace to go along with a four-piece bathroom, sofa, full kitchen, satellite television, Wi-Fi, and sundeck.
