It’s the last call for a golf getaway to the Haliburton Highlands, Southern Ontario’s most beloved autumnal destination. And there’s no better place to start and finish each day of vibrant fall foliage than Sandy Lane Resort along the northern rim of serene Halls Lake. Eighteen holes of classic Haliburton golf is just the tip of the iceberg, as the region also boasts stellar horseback riding, backcountry cycling, and ATV trails.
Amid autumn’s vibrant peak, Haliburton County’s sprawling, rolling acreage transforms into a jaw-dropping kaleidoscope of colour, including bright hues of amber, marigold, and kelly green. Haliburton County spans over 4,000 square kilometres, reaching from Lake of Bays all the way through Algonquin Provincial Park’s southern rim. In the heart of all this beauty is Sandy Lane Resort, one of the most desirable four-season cottage resorts in Ontario.
You won’t find a more suitable destination to wholly regenerate than the azure blue water, emerald woodland, and fine sand found on this restful estate. However, it’s essential to leave room for adventure, primarily because Sandy Lane offers so many complimentary activity rentals, such as bicycles, canoes, and water skis. And some of the most breathtaking Southern Ontario cycling routes can be picked up near the resort.
For those who are aching to escape the grips of the Greater Toronto Area this summer, there may not be a more enticing backcountry destination than the Haliburton Highlands, most notably Halls Lake’s Sandy Lane Resort. Sandy Lane provides the perfect combination of solitude, outdoor excitement, and true rejuvenation amid towering sugar maples and cottonwoods. Some of the most common mid-summer activities here in the Highlands include fishing, bicycling, boating, and, of course, ATVing. In fact, there are kilometres upon kilometres of prime Haliburton ATV trails at arm’s length when you choose our peaceful lakeside respite.
Over the past decade, many beer drinkers have replaced timeless domestic lagers with hazy, dark, or sour ales. Craft brew palettes, even for self-proclaimed beer aficionados, continuously evolve—that’s what makes the “hunt” for the tastiest ales so uniquely intoxicating (in more ways than one). Luckily for you and your group, Sandy Lane Resort is just a short drive from three spectacular breweries. Each Haliburton Highlands brewery has a diverse, always-changing tap list, distinctive decor, and a team of highly-skilled brewers.
With summer officially in the rearview mirror, we’ve eagerly turned our attention to autumn’s peak here in the lush Haliburton Highlands. Sandy Lane Resort is one of the only year-round Haliburton resorts on Halls Lake, and autumn is among our most popular seasons, thanks to the surrounding forestry’s transformation from hunter green to crimson, amber, marigold, and emerald. A visit to Central Ontario in the fall is a wise choice, especially for couples, “leaf-peepers,” and nature enthusiasts.
