Welcome to The Highland Lakehouse! Your year round luxury retreat nestled in the heart of the Haliburton Highlands & only 2.5 hours from Toronto. This fully reno'd home has all the amenities: wifi, dishwasher, satellite TV not to mention privacy, stunning views, & slower pace of life. Situated on picturesque Esson Lake we are in prime location for boating, fishing, skiing, snowshoeing or simply catching up on sleep!

Der Wohnraum

The Highland is where adults can be kids & kids can do what they do best - swim, eat, play, sleep & then do it all again all in a picturesque setting on peaceful Esson Lake. It’s where memories are made, high scores are beat, meals are shared by starlight, and stories are told by campfire. Where laps are rowed and swam and skied. Books are devoured and afternoon naps are pretty much a requirement. Every season The Highland is a paradise. Colourful leaves, fresh crisp air, roaring fires, polar bear dips‎, skating, sledding and lazy days spent snuggled up with your favourite people.

Great place. We stayed for four days over Thanksgiving and had a wonderful stay. The cottage is spacious, very clean, comfy. Well equipped both inside and out. The lake is lovely - great for paddling. And our hosts were incredibly conscientious with communication and tips. If you can handle the stairs it’s a fantastic lakeside retreat.

Kate & Darcy's place looks exactly the same as the pictures! The place is well equipped for outdoor and indoor activities. Our group had a really good time staying there!

This cottage was a great place to stay! It was cozy and endearing and had everything you could need and then some. The deck and dock space was beautiful and the hosts were great with answering all my questions and providing tons of detail about all the amenities and expectations. We had a chance to take the boats out and explore the islands on the lake as well. The only small downside was the amount of stairs down to the water because there were two small children. But with enough hands and supervision it really wasn't a problem at all. Overall fantastic experience.

There is something for everyone at Kate and Darcy's cottage. While others may prize all of the outdoor amenities, we particularly appreciated the indoor features: overall decor, spacious and well furnished bedrooms, harvest table, second fridge, second 2-piece bathroom, dishwasher, landline, and very practical things like bedding and towels, toilet paper and paper towel, etc. All of the written instructions were clear and even fun to read and Kate often responded within minutes to any questions we had. For our group, the cottage felt a bit small and we would have liked a dock and deck with more sun. Given the coolish weather, we did enjoy swimming when we could. It was lovely to sit on the dock at 6:00 for a drink and take in the view.

We were a party of 8 and this was a great space for us. The lake was beautiful and the paddle boards were a blast. Easy access to two towns and groceries. We cooked a lot in the kitchen! Having only one shower was a bit of an issue for a family of our size but we managed well. Kate was VERY responsive to all my questions. The washer and dryer and second refrigerator were invaluable. You could really see the stars at night. We downloaded a constellation app and passed it around the fire in the evening. Really cool. Would definitely consider returning to this property.

Thanks so much for the lovely review Sherry. It was so nice to have you and the family. We hope you come again next year (and by then we're hoping to have our outdoor shower up and running!)

Kate and Darcy's place is a lovely home on the lake. It has a beautiful view of the water and they provide a lot of things to do - both for the lake and indoors. It is nicely decorated, clean and had everything we needed. It was close to a bike path, grocery store and hiking trails. We loved our stay there!

This wonderful cottage/country home is everything that it promises to be in the listing. Astonishing beauty and attention to detail by the hosts made this a perfect place to spend a week away from the city. We enjoyed every minute and the squeals of delight from our nieces are probably still echoing around the lake.
