About The Author

Loralea

Country life was always a factor when we looked for a place to live, so back in 2002 Heather and I quit our city jobs and purchased a small Country Resort on Halls Lake in the Haliburton Highlands of Ontario Canada. We live on the resort grounds and enjoying helping people with their all season vacation and Family Reunion planning. Our Blog supports resort guests and visitors to the area by letting them know all the things happening in the Haliburton Highlands in order to get the most out of their vacation or weekend getaway. We'll be happy to help you find what your looking for in the Haliburton Highlands. May it be things to do, places to eat, family activities, sites to see, cottages for rent or sale, almost anything to do with the Haliburton Highlands.
