This unique, rustic cottage is situated on Salerno Lake which is known for its excellent fishing and located in the beautiful Haliburton Highlands area, about 40 minutes north of Peterborough, and 2.5 hrs from Toronto. We are 50 min. south of Alqonquin Park and one hour away from the 65,000 acre Haliburton Forest and Wildlife Reserve with its 'A Walk in the Clouds' canopy tour, world-famous Wolf Observatory, and its well-groomed trails for biking & hiking.
Our lakefront haven is a spacious 3-level building with a separate bunkie/ games room. With 3 bedrooms and a loft in the main building, and double bunk-beds in the bunkie, the cottage has ample room for any large family. Our vacant lot next door enhances the sense of woodland seclusion and adds to the plentiful lounging and playing outdoor space. Our screened-in porch provides outdoor seating while being sheltered from inclement weather. This porch connects to our huge, surround deck housing a glass-top table and umbrella for outdoor dining while viewing the lake.

Thanks for an amazing weekend at your cottage!! We had a blast checking out some of the retro movies and learning to light up the fireplace! The view of the lake at night with wisps of fog drifting across was nothing short of breathtaking. The attic rooftop window (in the loft) was also a genius way to stargaze without the cold. And it's amazing how you have pretty much anything we needed already prepared, like a home-away-from-home. We really couldn't have asked for anything more. Thanks again for such a memorable time!
