Reviewed November 1, 2012

A real find. We were made very welcome by the hosts and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great breakfast. Spacious and comfortable rooms. Bit late for autumn colours but enjoyed some good walks & mountain biking.

My wife and I recently spent a week at Heather Lodge. We had a wonderful time and were treated like family by Connie and Arend. They make sure you not only have a great time, but look out for you like family, making sure everything is just the way you need it to be. From excellent meals, to spotless facilities, to a spectatular view and setting, you can't go wrong with the Heather Lodge. My wife and I intend to go back this summer, but this time we are hoping to stay for ten days. We both deserve it and I bet you do too. Thanks Connie and Arend and if you look at my other reviews, I am not always this complimentary -- but you have earned every word that I have written -- hope to see you again soon.

My husband and I were visiting friends in Minden and we needed a place to sleep. The room we got was impeccably clean, the bed soft and comfortable (we slept soundly) and the room decor lush and comfortable. We enjoyed breakfast at the inn which was delicious, watched birds from the comfort of the breakfast room, and enjoyed the view from the back deck. Arend showed us some of the great roads we could ride back on so we could enjoy the Autumn view. All in all would recommend this place to anyone needing a place to stay in the area.

Great View, Great Food, Great Room, Great Hosts.......Conny and Arend are wonderful hosts. I took my husband to Heather Lodge for his 60th birthday. We had fun and we enjoyed the surrounding areas. Arend had given us points of interest to explore and explore we did. We both enjoyed our stay and we will be back for sure. The Lodge and the beautiful colours of fall what a memory. Heather Lodge came highly recommended and we will also recommend Heather Lodge to others......Thanks Conny and Arend for making our mini-vacation memorable.

Room Tip: the Deluxe suite was wonderful. Great view and a bird feeder off the private deck gave lots of enter...

My Wife and I won a package getaway from Halliburton Highlands that included Heather Lodge for two nights including one dinner and two Breakfasts. We arrived mid afternoon in the end of Sept and where taken aback by the beautiful surroundings. The Lodge itself is beautiful with its wood futures. The owners/operators of the Lodge are Super Friendly and charming. We had a wonderful dinner on our first night. The food was amazing and BYOB wine is a great way to have a nice bottle of wine without the super restaurant cost :) our room was very nice with a view of the lake, a balcony and a fire place. We woke the next morning for a nice breakfast overlooking the lake and some great advice on where to go adventuring and sightseeing in the area. That night enjoyed the nice private hot tub and a nice starry night on our balcony watching the stars. The next morning's breakfast was just as amazing and we were given directions for a very beautiful drive home. I would recommend this lodge to all adults who want a wonderful getaway!

Room Tip: Chose a room with a lake view!

Have returned 3 times in 3 different seasons and thoroughly enjoyed each visit. Lovely grounds, accomodations and food. Good docking if you have a boat along( marina next door for easy launching) Hiking trails in nearby Haliburton. Wonderful Thai restaurant in nearby Minden village called Wild Orchid and lovely country golf course nearby- called Blairhampton. Fireplaces in each suite are cozy in fall and winter

We spent one wonderful night at Heather Lodge and we will definitely visit again. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. The room was nicely decorated, bed very comfortable and absolutely immaculate. The grounds and lodge were extremely well cared for, beautiful gardens and the view from the dining area/deck was breath taking. The breakfast was delicious as well! Thank you Connie and Aaron for being such great hosts.
