A Little About Us
By Bill and Heather

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, Loralea Country Inn Resort on Halls Lake in the Haliburton Highlands of Ontario Canada.

We live on the resort grounds and enjoy helping people with their all season vacation and Family Reunion planning.

Our Blog Vacation Things To Do 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 summer or winter vacation or weekend getaway.

Our other blog What’s Up in the Haliburton Highlands supplies our customers with listings gathered from the web of businesses and cottages for sale in the area.
