Sandy Lane Resort: Ontario’s Winter Wonderland

The surrounding forests and lake waters look so stunning as their snow-covered surfaces glisten in the soft light of the winter sun. Sandy Lane’s grounds turn into a natural winter wonderland that you have to experience for yourself! We receive tons of snow every year, making it a great place to enjoy your thaw-some winter vacation. Check out our winter activities below: 

  • Toboggan Hill: we have a beautiful little hill that gets covered in snow each winter, making for a slippery slope for folks of all ages—plastic toboggans and snow tubes are included in your cottage reservation
  • Cross Country Skiing: you can ski right from the front entry of your cottage or attempt some lake skiing on Halls Lake—check out The Haliburton Highlands Nordic Trails Association’s site for more off-site ski trails
  • Cozy Up by the Fireplace: every cottage has a fireplace, so make yourself a nice cup of hot chocolate in your furnished cottage kitchen and cozy up with your significant other—we provide firewood for no charge
  • Outdoor Skating Rink: you can rent a variety of skates, hockey sticks, and pucks from the resort in preparation for your family’s hockey tournament; you can also just skate around leisurely
