Back in the days of the steam engine,
the 5-acre property known as Kashaga Lodge was one of only a handful of lakeside "resorts" on Haliburton County's largest lake.
The beach was lined with about a dozen tiny cabins, and one community washroom with showers.
A little bit back from the beach was the two-story dance-hall / banquet room with 10 inn rooms and a shared bathroom on the upper floor.
Tourists from the city, arriving at the Haliburton train station had a choice of renting a canoe, walking, or taking the lodge's "shuttle car"
to make the 2 1/2 mile trip to the lodge.
Over the decades, transportation and lifestyles, as well as everything else, (including the tourism industry,) has changed completely.
And Kashaga Lodge is one of the few tourist accommodators in the Haliburton village area that hasn't been absorbed by the condo phenomenon.
In fact, Kashaga Lodge Cottages includes perhaps the most diverse range of affordable non-condo tourist accommodation in Haliburton County.
LAKE KASHAGAWIGAMOG COTTAGES:
Perhaps Kashaga Lodge's most popular year-round tourist accommodation units are the 6-bedroom and the 2-bedroom housekeeping cottages.
These two cottages share the same 2 acre property. The 6-bedroom cottage is just 70 ft from the beach and dock.
The 2-bdrm cottage is situated quite privately on the same property, 175 ft from the beach.
Both cottages share usage of the beach and dock, and are fully-self-contained housekeeping cottages.
Lake Kashagawigamog Lodge Suites:
The original lodge building is on the neighbouring 3-acre property to the two cottages, and has certainly evolved since the steam era. The upper level has been totally
renovated into three separate units (as opposed to 10 inn rooms.)
Two are completely self-contained house-keeping suites, (one 2-bdrm and one 1-bdrm,) and the third is a room with double and single beds and a 4-pc bath including jacuzzi tub.
Each of the three units has a walkout to the same huge deck, each suite having its own propane BBQ and deck chairs with a splendid view over marvelous Lake Kashagawigamog.
PRIVATE OFF-SITE COTTAGE
For a completely differnt Haliburton vacation experience, Kashaga Lodge also offers rental of a 2-bedroom cottage on the Irondale River, 20 minutes south of
Haliburton, just 1 km from the village of Gooderham. This 2-bedroom cottage offers a uniquely private get-away, and is particularly appealing to those
who just want to get away from it all, and is a trail-seekers paradice. Not only is the Irondale River a designated canoe and kayaking route, but the property
is on some of Haliburton County's favourite ATV and snowmobile snowmobile trails, including the IB&O rail trail which passes right through the 40 acre property.
