Village of Haliburton

In Haliburton, it seems time has no meaning. No one is ever in a hurry. Unspoiled by over-population or development as has happened to so many of the "tourist" towns across central Ontario, the village of Haliburton remains the gem of the Haliburton Highlands.

Cut out of the forest in the mid-1800's, Haliburton completely surrounds picturesque Head Lake, with a backdrop of rolling hills on one side, and a steep climb by car up from the opposite side of town to a lookout providing a magnificent view of the whole panorama.

There are plenty of restaurants and cafes in and around the village providing dining from 'just a coffee' to the finest in cuisine. There are also abundant small shops, many carrying unique one-of-a-kind items. Other must see attractions in the town are the many art studios and galleries, as well as the museum, which has exhibits that tell the story of the development of the area from agriculture and logging into Ontario's southernmost unspoiled vacation destination. Visitors, especially with children, won't want to miss stopping at the full sized steam locomotive which has been restored and now proudly oversees the town it helped create.

 

 

The Haliburton townsfolk are always friendly, hospitable, and helpful and try their darndest to help visitors from out of town feel welcome. And Kashaga Lodge is the closest cottage resort to town, just a 10 min bicycle or boat ride away.
