Summer’s arrival is so achingly close that we can practically feel those glorious rays from above, smell the pleasant florescence, and see the Highlands’ many woodland critters reemerge. As millions of Ontarians line up their summer plans, Sandy Lane Resort gleefully continues to prepare for an influx of adventurous travellers looking for nothing but seclusion, tranquillity, and a healthy dose of outdoor exploration. Our four-season cottage resort remains one of the most desirable remote vacation spots in the province, thanks to our widespread cottages, swift access to a seemingly endless wilderness, and, of course, over 1,300 acres of glorious Halls Lake aqua. Without question, Sandy Lane Resort is the perfect place to holiday after spending so much time in self-isolation.

The Ideal Cottage Resort: A Remote, Year-Round Haven

Photo of Sandy Lane's Cottage Resort.First and foremost, a quintessential cottage resort needs four commodities: independent (and inviting) cabins, easy lake access, warm hospitality, and countless kilometres of nearby forestry that’s just aching to be discovered by curious travellers. Before we dive into the dozens of recreational activities available on-site (or nearby), let’s shed some light on our 16 individual cabins. Each cabin features a large sundeck, propane grill, satellite television, wood-burning fireplace, high-speed Wi-Fi, and air conditioning for those warm summer nights. Rise with the sun on your spacious deck with a steaming cup of joe in your hand; watch a flick in the cabin if the weather doesn’t want to cooperate; and gather around your private fire pit after dark to roast marshmallows, stargaze, and share stories of the day’s wildest adventures.

Haliburton’s Vast Wilderness

Speaking of wild adventure…our classic Halls Lake cottage resort rests along the metaphorical precipice of endless exploration. Whether you’re drawn to the water, forest, or countryside, you’ll never forget your time spent in the Haliburton Highlands, just south of Algonquin Provincial Park. As we’ve chronicled in recent years, our affordable yet inviting Haliburton cottage rentals are a short distance away from an extensive ATV trail system, horseback riding excursions, zipline canopy tours, golf courses, backcountry cycling, and peaceful hikes.

Splash-Tastic Halls Lake Fun

With over 1,300 acres of water at your disposal, you won’t have to worry about bumping into small colonies of tourists this summer. Last year, we laid out 10 unique ways to explore Halls Lake, including kayaking, fishing, jet-skiing, boating, and tubing. Upon arrival, please ask about our complimentary watercraft rentals!
