How to still enjoy the great restaurants

Many of our local restaurants and kitchens are offering delicious take-out and prepared meals for you to enjoy at home. Some offer curbside “no contact” pickup, some offer delivery, all offer a way for you to safely access great-tasting food to make eating at home as good as eating at the restaurant.

Pickup something tasty for you next dinner!

Just in time for the warming season, patios are now starting to open.  Why not enjoy some good food & drink in a responsible way.

How to still enjoy the great Outdoors

The Haliburton Highlands boasts of a pristine natural environment grounded firmly on the Canadian Shield. Including the southern portion of Algonquin Provincial Park as well as Silent Lake Provincial Park & Queen Elizabeth II Wildlands Provincial Park, the area is characterized by mixed forest highlands interspersed at every turn with freshwater wetlands, rivers and lakes, creating a landscape much sought after for all of its artistic, cultural and recreational opportunities.

There is no better way to view the Haliburton Highlands than to go hiking along one of its many trails.
