Welcome to Stormy Lake

Private Cottage for Rent by Owner

The cottage is located on the North West shore of Stormy Lake in Haliburton, Ontario. Built in the mid 50’s it’s undergone several changes over the years but remains true to the original structure. Whether you’re looking for a family vacation or a romantic getaway this is the place. Just a short breathtaking drive to Haliburton Village, the Haliburton Forest & Wild Life Reserve, Algonquin Provincial Park, Haliburton School of the Arts, Haliburton Highlands Museum, the Irondale river and so much more. A unique cottage experience with kayaking, boating, fishing, swimming, hiking… or just relaxing in the sun will make your Haliburton holiday one to remember.

Stormy Lake’s waters are pure and clear. You can see to a depth of about 4 meters (13 feet). The main part of Stormy Lake is about 1 km (1/2 mile) across and the deepest spot is 25 meters (83 feet) just north of the island. For those of you that would like to wet a line, bring your gear and catch perch, bass and trout or we have some rods and reels waiting for you.

Less than three hours from Toronto and Ottawa, the Haliburton Highlands is nestled among the rugged landscape of the Canadian Shield. With more than 600 lakes in the region, water enthusiasts interested in boating, canoeing, kayaking, and – of course – fishing will have found their paradise. There’s something for those who remain on dry land, too. Thousands of kilometers of scenic trails await hikers, mountain bikers, motorcyclists and ATV enthusiasts. Or pop into the community’s quaint towns and villages for your fill of shops, authentic dining experiences and best of all, country charm. During your stay, we recommend experiencing our thriving and vibrant arts community, where you can sign up for jewellery and sculpture classes at our Haliburton School of the Arts or catch a performance at the annual summer festival. It’s no wonder the Haliburton Highlands is known as “A Natural Work of Art.”
