When the chill of winter arrives, it doesn’t ask. To ease through this seasonal change we have a solution to help melt the ice around your summer hearts: start looking forward to your lakefront vacation and book early!

Booking ahead is the best way to secure that perfect cottage for you and your family. These 4 reasons to kickstart your vacation plans will help you work within your budget and give you more choice in cottages, locations, and features/amenities:

1. Secure the week(s) you want at the lake this summer

Weeks in July and August are the most sought-after for lakeside summer vacations in the Haliburton Highlands, Kawartha Lakes and Bancroft areas.

You will have more cottages to choose from when planning ahead and ultimately ensuring your time is well spent!

2. More choice for 2 or more weeks of vacation at a lakeside cottage

One-week bookings are most common so if you are fortunate to have two or more consecutive weeks’ vacation – start looking for the perfect cottage in December or January.

You’ve earned your vacation time and you deserve a memorable experience with your family!

3. Finding a large cottage for your multi-generational family

Cottages that can accommodate 8 to 12 guests tend to book very quickly for summer vacations.

Find a cottage that's right for your family so everyone goes to sleep and wake-up comfortably and happy!

4. Vacation at a cottage with the features/amenities that will make it a memorable family holiday

It’s all about the lakefront here in Ontario cottage country! Features like: sandy beach, gentle slope to the lake, and cottages within close proximity to quaint cottage country towns like Haliburton, Bracebridge, and Bobcaygeon are in high demand. Wifi, air conditioning and awesome water toys like SUPs and kayaks are highly sought-after with multi-generational families.

All of the cottages in our inventory are private and lakefront, so you will never have to compromise on these features.
