Willow Beach Cottages
Ranked #5 of 9 Hotels in Haliburton
Reviewed 4 September 2016

We spent a week at cottage 13 with our extended family. It is the largest unit at Willow Beach, providing private space for everyone with 4 bedrooms and a sun room/secured breezeway that can also be used an additional bedroom. Our combined families have lots of kids so we were not looking for a newly furnished/renovated place that would make us nervous each time our kids started running around. This place is clean and furnished as any "up north" rustic vacation rental should be, with furniture that is functional and comfortable. There is a gorgeous view of the lake, sand, playground, firepit and LOTS of space for the kids to play soccer etc... We were there to relax AND show the kids a good time. This cottage ensured both. There is an additional restroom just outside this cottage that is housed within the laundry facility that we found to be very conveniently located when looking for extra privacy away from the gang. In the laundry facility has a large sink that was also a bonus for parents with children.
There are two entrances to the wrap around deck, one from the kitchen and one from the family room, which made eating outside very convenient for those preparing. Kitchen is larger than most rentals. BBQ right on your private deck, no need to share with others, or walk to a communal space.
The master bedroom has its own floor and its own bathroom, which was SO nice! Gorgeous view, too. There is a lake view from the family room, and 3 bedrooms, so listening to the calming water and waves while falling asleep was so lovely.
Precious memories were made, we plan to make an annual trip to Willow Beach, and stay at cottage 13. Thank-you everyone for a wonderful experience!

Room Tip: Cottage 13 has among the best lake views and is spacious.

We rented cottage 3 across the playground. We could watch the kids while we cook or read on the porch. The cottage has new floors.

We had our coffee at the beach every morning. It was very quiet and relaxing. The view is great.

Nice beach for kids.

The last day we had lunch across the lake at Bonnie View Inn (Red umbrellas).

The kids did not want to go home.

We would like to go back in the fall for a weekend.

10 minutes away from Haliburton Village.

We saw blue jays, ducks, and geese and a great heron.

We had a great May long weekend at Cabin 7 of the Willow Beach Cottages. The cabin was clean and fully equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The open concept living room / kitchen was a great space for hanging out when the weather was not so great. We loved the big windows that allowed us a view of the lake and the rest of the cottages and the corner fireplace made the space very cozy. Our cabin was only a short walk from the shared beach and fire pit. The community feel of the Willow Beach Cottages made for a very relaxed and enjoyable weekend. We highly recommend Cabin 7 and the Willow Beach Cottages.

Our stay over Mother's Day weekend was excellent, despite the weather not fully cooperating. Cottage #7 is nice and cozy for a small family. The cottage was clean and had some disability enhancements which I appreciated. The property manager treated us like "royalty" to ensure our stay was pleasant. Perhaps most importantly, our dog loved it too! The lake was too cold to swim, but we did catch some fish (which is unusual for us). Enjoyed our stay and re-charge the batteries weekend!! Recommended! The G family

We had a wonderful stay at these cottages. We were 3 families with kids, so split our stay between cottage # 7 & 12.

The cottage was amazing, clean and the surroundings were beautiful.

The owners & the property manager take good care of the guests and the cottage. Can't wait to go back.
