Welcome to Templar Cottage on Horseshoe Lake, one of the few substantial lakeside acreages remaining in the Haliburton Highlands. Here is a private, exclusive retreat in the midst of 32 acres of mature forest. Take a stroll along our paths; follow the stone steps leading to rustic bridges spanning your own private babbling brook. Hear the water tumble over the waterfalls as you walk toward Horseshoe Lake to enjoy over 200 feet of private shoreline.

The cottage is set back from the lake for privacy. The bunkie is perched overlooking the lake and the deck of the bunkie has had many a cocktail enjoyed while watching the amazing sunsets.

At the shoreline, enjoy great swimming, 2 kayaks, a canoe, paddleboard, lily pad and a row boat.

Your family can enjoy the bliss that three generations of our family have experienced. Templar Cottage is a non-smoking, child and pet friendly environment. Centrally located between Minden and Haliburton Village, you can enjoy so many of the activities and attractions that beautiful area has to offer including the Blairhampton Golf Course which is approx 10 minutes away.
