About Vacation Things To Do

Country life was always a factor when we looked for a place to live, so back in 2002 Heather and I quit our city jobs and purchased a small Cottage Resort in the country on Halls Lake in the Haliburton Highlands of Ontario Canada. We live on the resort grounds and enjoying helping people with their all season weekend getaways and vacation plans along with Family Reunion planning. Country life has been an adjustment especially to Heather as their is no Walmarts up here but we did get a Timmy’s a few years back. We blog on vacation things to do in the Haliburton Highlands and cottages for sale in the area. Overall we love it, it’s a different life style….
