We take pride in the cleanliness of our cottages and the maintenance of our property. Each cottage has a large picture window overlooking beautiful Halls Lake and an inviting deck with BBQ for you to sit out and enjoy the summer. Our serene surroundings offer a relaxing care-free holiday for whatever reason you choose to spend it in our Algonquin and Haliburton Highlands.

What about taking a day trip to the many and varied activities and adventures right on the doorstep of your cottage.

 

 

Algonquin Park in the Algonquin Highlands

Over the years Algonquin Park has developed into a major tourist attraction. It is famous as the backdrop for many Group of Seven artists paintings. Of course the natural beauty is protected for tourists and researchers to study and enjoy nature. It is preserved largely as it was since the beginning of time. Algonquin is home to thousands of animal, flora and fauna species. Park management has been careful to limit park development. Glengarrian Cottage Resort is positioned on one of the main corridors that act as transportation arteries. This highway provides access to limited accommodation, outfitters and information centers.

As a day visitor, come observe the natural beauty, wildlife and perhaps hike on one of the many well signed trails that stem from the transportation corridors. You’ll want to see the amazing hands on Visitor’s Centre, tour the art gallery or shop at the Canoe Lake Access Point. Need a snack for your worked-up appetite? Supplies and a wide variety of restaurants from fast food to gourmet are available in the Park area. Outfitters for those who plan to adventure into the Algonquin interior are available inside and outside the park boundary. Algonquin Provincial Park makes up part of the Haliburton Highlands northern border. Haliburton County is the perfect location for visitors to vacation and experience the wonders of Algonquin.
