One of the most fabulous hand-built log cottage experiences in this region. Twisted Log Cottage is finished from reclaimed logs out of the local Irondale River. Most of the logs are over 100 years old when timber was driven by water to markets in the south. While the logs may be ancient the cottage has all the modern amenities very gracefully incorporated to make your private vacation relaxing and nostalgic.

Upon entering the atmosphere is breath taking and you immediately want to begin the journey of studying the colours, knots, contours and shear amazement of the creativity put into the design and décor. The open area kitchen, dining table and living room with 30’ bracing logs from side to side and a log constructed open loft hallway leading to 2 bedrooms upstairs is pretty cool.

Outside you will find very spacious upper and lower decks, BBQ’s on both levels and a fire pit. It is from here that you want to enjoy sun filled days and by night, star gaze, light a campfire, play the guitar and sing, toast marshmallows or just listen and wonder at the sound of nature in this perfect part of Haliburton Cottage Country.

From the cottage to the shore you walk down the hill through the mature trees to a private dock with a deep clean swimming area.

Salerno Lake is one of Haliburton’s many good fishing lakes where you can catch. Muskie, Small & Large Mouth Bass and Pickerel.

Local attractions include restaurants, local art and culture, hiking trails and excellent golf is within a 45 minute drive. For shopping needs, picturesque Haliburton, with its summer festivals, concerts, fairs, and shopping, is approx 40 minutes.
