Property Description

Halls Lake Cottage is ideal for families with children looking for a large beach, with safe, sandy shallow water. The beach is possibly one of the largest private beaches in the area. The property is exceptionally private with over 360' of your own waterfront and 14 acres with numerous trails and a scenic lookout to explore. The cottage is close to the water for easy access and to keep an eye on kids at the beach.

There is comfortable sleeping for at least 8 in 3 bedrooms, with 2 bathrooms and a finished walkout basement accented in pine with a cozy woodstove. There is a screened in porch that adjoins the hot tub room for lounging. The raised ceilings and large windows provide a bright atmosphere in a comfortable living room with rustic hardwood floors open to the spacious dining area and large kitchen.

Lounge on the wraparound deck directly overlooking the lake, or sit at the beach and enjoy sun or a swim to the raft with the kids. Boats include a family sized canoe, 2 kayaks, paddleboat and rowboat. Halls Lake is a large Haliburton lake rated very clean.

Outstanding Hard Sand Beach

Your waterfront is outstanding.... loved the hard sand underfoot and the beach where the little ones waded and built castles, waterways, dikes. The raft was terrific as a swimming destination. We made use of the side lawn for all kinds of games and to have a fire in the fire pit.

A Great Beach

The location is great and ... the on-line photos donâ??t truly do it justice. I have seldom seen an actual beach at a cottage, which we enjoyed immensely.
