After we received the client’s comment, house-keeping staff and manager visited the subject accommodation to review the comments in detail: We inspected the bedding, kicked the carpet, discussed every piece of furniture and checked walls and faucets. And to start with the latter, there was one faucet, which was slightly dripping. As to the carpet, it was laid 3 years... More

We went to the Wolf Reserve and it was amazing. The wolfs were SO close, one was literally scratching on the window, we got such a close-up view. Definitely worth it. Would recommend to everyone! The staff was very knowledgeable and it was very interesting hearing them talk about each wolf.

Yesterday we had the pleasure of going dog sledding in haliburton forest. It was incredible. The dogs were so beautiful and the guides were very nice and knowledgable. You could tell that everyone who worked there really cared for the dogs which was very important to us. We did the introductory tour but IMO it was the perfect length for... More

We (group of friends) decided to drive the 2-3 hours in "scary" weather (we would later be hit with the ice storm of Toronto) to go dog sledding. I'm so glad we did and even more happy we got back to Toronto before the worst of the storm hit!!! The dogs are gorgeous and each have their own personality. I... More

I never knew wolves could be so fascinating! This is definitely worth a trip; there is so much to be learned - particularly about the positive aspects of wolves. You can view them up close in natural habitat via a one way window, and the staff members are very well informed and can address most any question you may have.... More

I biked through Haliburton Forest a couple of times many years ago. I decided to go back with a group of friends and stay a few nights in the Boiler Room. This is the first time I have ever stayed in a "log cabin" and was excited. In fact, the idea of sleeping in the loft (all 10 of us)... More

Just came back from a weekend stay in Haliburton. We did the Canopy Tour again and visited the Wolf Centre again. We feel such a bond with the Wolves and it is a full day of fun always. Even though the weather was not cooperating at first with heavy down pours. By the time we finished our Wolf Centre visit,... More

My husband and myself just returned from 2 nights camping in the Haliburton Forest on Minna Lake #4. It was a great place to camp for those of us who are not intense camping people.
