About the property

"You really do feel like you are in a special place when you stay here"

- comment by a recent guest


Nestled in a mature maple forest, our Haliburton classic home projects from the ridge overlooking Head Lake, just a few minutes away from the centre of the town of Haliburton.

Superinsulated, wood heated in winter, spring and fall, forest cooled in summer, Maple Arbour is an example of how existing dwellings can be reworked to live lightly on the earth.


~ The covered balcony is a great spot to take in the view of the lake and watch the sunset.

~ The spacious interior has been beautifully refinished using sustainably harvested FSC-certified wood (cherry flooring and pine trim) and low-VOC finishes.

~ A large dining/living room/kitchen area surrounds a European-style masonry heater and bakeoven.

~ Lots of large opening windows on all sides makes you feel like you're part of the forest canopy.

~ Open-concept common area is perfect for family gatherings

~ Easy level layout, no stairs at entry, facilities all on one floor make Maple Arbour ideal for people with restricted mobility.

~ Radiant heated bedroom and bathroom floors.

~ Well-equipped kitchen, DVD, CD sound system, wireless internet.

~ gas BBQ

~ Only 3 km road distance to the centre of Haliburton.

Cozy winter weekend

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend at Maple Arbour. The property is tucked up on a ridge just minutes from town. Despite the fact that it was the coldest weekend in memory, we stayed toasty between the heated floors and the masonry heater. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed, and the dishwasher and pantry storage were a great bonus. Beautiful views from just about every window and a very spacious and master suite made our stay super relaxing.
