While our sandy beach is smothered by sugar-white snow from December through March, guests never lose the satisfying feeling of escapism at our invigorating and utterly secluded respite. Typically, families choose Sandy Lane Resort for its nearby backcountry snowmobiling, Nordic ski trails, outdoor hot tubs, and, of course, those cozy wood-burning fireplaces (the only ones in Haliburton). But don’t forget that both Algonquin Park and the Haliburton Highlands are home to some of the premier dog sledding in Ontario.
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.
Summer is officially here to stay in the peaceful Haliburton Highlands, a particularly beautiful slice of Central Ontario located less than 200 kilometres from Toronto. There’s a seemingly endless pristine wilderness that fully encircles Sandy Lane Resort, one of the top-rated Central Ontario resorts. Guests escape Toronto several times a year to visit our four-season getaway to unplug, unwind, and rejuvenate in the Haliburton Highlands’ serene natural beauty.
