About Wayne Krangle

I love to play in the outdoors. My favourite activities include hiking, mtn. biking, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, snowshoeing, bird watching, trail riding and making maple syrup. all of which I do on this property.

I am 62 and sell real estate in Haliburton. Finding the perfect getaway for my clients is very satisfying to me. You can see more of my profile at urbancottager dot com.

Wayne Krangle purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Wayne Krangle chose Haliburton

My connection with the Haliburton Highlands goes back 50 years. I went to several summer camps as a child in this area, and fell in love with the lakes and forests. This was fostered by many canoe trips throughout the area. This property is very special to me, as it affords one all the benefits gained from undisturbed wilderness, while maintaining most creature comforts. There are no interruptions from neighbours. You will not hear jet skiis going by, or any other loud annoying activities. Just

the call of the loon along with the calls of countless other species of birds and


Although the cabin and lake are secluded, you are only 10 minutes from the village of

West Guilford which includes groceries and liquor stores, and 15 minutes from the

town of Haliburton, which has all the amenities one could need. This includes a state of the art hospital for emergencies.

What makes this cottage unique

Watching Mother Nature without any interruptions.

Living in a Cabin constructed out of, trees from the property. This all wood sustainable construction feels ecologically sound and healthy.

Listening for and sighting exotic species of birds, and viewing wild game animals in their natural habitats.

Fishing on my own lake, and never getting

'skunked' (catch and release please).

Snowshoeing, and breaking trail up to the lookout, where you can get a view of 3 lakes from one spot.

ATVing and snowmobiling on my own trails.

Making my own Maple Syrup.

Watching for the annual return of the great blue herons at our heron rookery.

Taking a sauna in one of the best saunas I

have experienced, and then rinsing off in the outdoor shower, (hot and cold water).

Canoeing and portaging to the next chain of lakes.

Knowing that I am the custodian of this wonderful place for generations to come.

So Private and Tranquil

  • 5 of 5

My sister was visiting from California. We rented Waynes cabin with three other friends. Five women! We had a wonderful time. We took advantage of all the cabin and property had to offer. Saunas. Firepit at night with s'mores. Kayaking. Hiking. Fires in the evening in the cabin. The mornings are extraordinary if you like to get up early. The mist oen the lake combined with the wildlife waking up is breathtaking. The lake is delightful for kayaking and canoeing. My grandfather owned 100 acres in northern Ontario and this place took me back to my childhood and the wonder and awe of natures simplicity. You never have to leave the property but if you do, it is very close to both Haliburton and Minden. The area is rich with artists studios and galleries. This cabin is not to be missed! Oh, and the chipmunks (fondly chippies) will keep a smile on your face as they dash across the deck in their search for acorns. Truly a place to let go of the everyday stresses and just be in the moment.

Claypack cabin get-away

  • 5 of 5

Great spot in the woods away from the world! The cabin is cozy and has all the basics needed plus more. The view is great, the lake is very private and quiet (in Wayne's words... "you can hear a bee fart"). Wayne was a a helpful host who was accessible but not intrusive, We especially loved the sauna !

slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I (all g with our two dogs) stayed at Wayne's cabin this past week and it was like staying in our very own slice of heaven. We had a great time and the property is just amazing. As other a have said, I'd recommend having a 4x4 and then the drive is just fun! We will be staying here again. We both cannot say enough about this cabin.

Thanks, Wayne!

My husband and I had a lovely time during our 10-day stay at the cabin. It was comfortable and well-apportioned. We loved the wood stove on the cold and rainy days, and we got lots of exercise hiking the property! Wayne was a gracious host and we are eternally grateful that he shared his cabin with us.

Owner's Response: Kelly and Andrew I am honoured that you chose my cabin to celebrate your anniversary and Andrew's major academic achievement. The trails are all in very good shape for this time of year, even though the snow disappeared so late. I look forward to seeing you back again. Best, Wayne

Visitors from Michigan

Our vacation began when Wayne met us at the road to Claypack Lake where he warmly greeted us and led us on a gorgeous ride up his lane to the cabin. The weather was perfect and the leaves on the sugar maples, oaks, birches, and others were stunning. Wayne gave us a thorough tour and left goodies for us to enjoy for our week at Claypack. The cabin was rustic but well-appointed. Our desire for seclusion, quiet, and a week of "unplugging" was fulfilled in this magical place. We hiked, fished, canoed, relaxed, read books, enjoyed the sauna, and the list goes on. I don't think we've ever seen Fall colours as spectacular as we did at Claypack. The peace and solitude were just what we needed and Wayne's goal was accomplished - we will hopefully be back! Thanks Wayne!
