FULL DETAILS

Named after our favourite Canadian kids' TV show in the 90's: Fred Penner's Place, this cheery and vibrant wilderness retreat is located in Haliburton, Ontario nestled in 100,000 acres of wilderness. The cabin overlooks a small paddling lake that offers expansive east and west facing views (without a cottage in site!). Watch the sunrise or sunset from your private dock, paddle, swim or fish on a private lake or access over 300km of trails right out your front door. Please note: Haliburton Forest trails are snowmobile only through the winter months (Mid December to the end of April). For snowshoeing or cross country skiing, visit the many trails in the surrounding area.

 

This location is very private and remote. Pack your bags, disconnect and enjoy nothing but the great outdoors.
