About This Cottage

Still Water Getaway is a newly renovated cottage that shows the skills of the master cabinetmaker owner in every room, but the supremely comfortable interior is only part of the picture. There is so much more to this great cottage package.

Located in the heart of the Haliburton Highlands the property is central to many of the popular cottage country attractions such as the Haliburton Forest, several golf courses, Minden whitewater centre, the Dorset Fire Tower and more. Whether it’s for a relaxing sunny summer break or an active winter vacation, the location is perfect to capture all that’s on offer. As an added bonus it’s walking distance to a couple of restaurants.

Facing west, the cottage sits a little above Mirror Lake on attractive lawned gardens. The no-motor lake is small but offers fishing, swimming, paddling with a canoe and two kayaks, and a beautiful setting for just enjoying the view. There is plenty of outdoor seating as well as a hammock, a raised sunning platform and a firepit for evenings out under the stars. On the deck you’ll find a patio table for eating out, more seating, and the hot tub.

Inside the cottage, the front door opens into the dining area, with stairs up to the spacious master bedroom that features a king sized bed and seating area. The bathroom is at the foot of the stairs. At the lakefront end of the dining room a door leads out to a screened-in porch where you can enjoy evenings of cards or board games, or a quiet morning coffee.

A galley kitchen separates the dining room from the living area and is beautifully presented and fully-equipped with a double fridge freezer, plenty of counter space and all the small appliances you’ll need. The large living room has comfortable leather furniture, doors to the deck and a gas fireplace for warmth on cooler evenings and ambiance in wintertime.

Two further bedrooms are off a corridor leading off the living room – one has twin beds and the other a king bed and pullout couch. Both bedrooms have sliding doors to the deck and hot tub area.

This is another gem from the owners of the wildly popular River House. This is a delightful cottage for a vacation at any time of the year – book now to secure your special time here.

Thank you for sharing this beautiful cottage. It was very tastefully decorated with "new" cabinets and furniture - hard to find a comfortable, currently decorated and cared for cottage these days - this one has it all. Rooms and beds are exceptionally prepared, leaving empty cabinets and drawers for your own supplies. Kitchen is very well equipped. The dock and chairs are in the sun most of the day - amazing! Lots of places to sit and relax. Close to a great restaurant and my hubby loved the view of the brewery across the lake. An absolute pleasure to enjoy this property.

Everything you're looking for. Highly recommended. We had a great time, tons of space for everyone. We will definitely come back here again. Thanks Again for letting us vacation for the week! 🙂

This house/ cottage is obviously well maintained and living space was great for our 4 generation group. Clean, lovely spacious bedrooms with comfy beds. The one bathroom/ laundry with a step in shower was perfect - a bit of a challenge to organize for a larger group though. Information both before arrival and in the cottage manual were great and the owners were welcoming in their messages and accessible. Part of the group were able to ski right out from the house around the lake with the dogs and the deer were plentiful. Beautiful setting.

We had a wonderful long weekend enjoying the cottage from the hot tub to the screened in porch. For our group, the size of the cottage was perfect. The amenities were great and served all of our needs and more. The cottage was very clean and well organized. Mirror lake is a smaller lake but offers a nice lookout from the many windows/doors on the back of the cottage. Would definitely book again!

Really lovely cottage done to a high standard with everything you need for your stay. Cosy fire place, comfy living and bedrooms, beautiful linens and towels, well equipped kitchen. Very considerate owners provided treats on arrival and craft ideas. The lake is beautiful and glassy still, great dock and canoe / kayaks, and the highlight is the hot tub. The cottage is a walk away from local shops and restaurants, road nearby but wasn't noisy. We had a perfect weekend getaway.
