Sandy Lane Resort

Traveller (9)
Room & Suite (11)
Dining (1)


Sandy Lane Resort is located in Algonquin Highlands, 20 minutes outside of Minden and 30 minutes from Haliubrton. This year round cottage resort offers self catering 2 and 3 bedroom cabins overlooking beautiful Halls lake. Relax on our large sandy beach, or enjoy one of our many activities! The sparkle of the lakes, the green of the forest, both set amongst the granite rock outcropping of the rugged rolling Haliburton Highlands. Long hot sunny days with warm waters bring us out to do all the activities that the Highlands have to offer. Relax on the beach, par take in a friendly horseshoe pitching contest, or waterskiing around the lake, all part of summer. Always lots to do at Sandy Lane or nearby. Not just sand at Sandy Lane. A true winter wonderland of frozen lakes and snow covered forest to play on. Yes, we have snow, snow and more snow plus lots of activities for you to enjoy at Sandy Lane Resort or nearby.

We decided last minute to visit Sandy Lane over a January weekend. It was a reasonable drive, easy to find and the service was great. The owners set us up with our ice fishing hut/rods/heaters. It was -39 outside but we had a lot of fun. They routinely came and checked on us,

My husband and I enjoyed a great 2 night stay here. It was low season so it was very quiet and peaceful. We stayed in a cottage with a private hot tub. Everything was clean and worked great. We especially loved the fireplace! Yes, there are some renovations that need to be done

Cottage 19 has a bathroom with mold on the shower curtain, grout, floor & a shower with a trickle of water flow. The kitchen has some plywood counter tops, ugh. We could find only one saucepan & no lid. We shared the attic space with most likely a noisy black squirrel that left

Thank you for your valued feedback. We agree that our cabin is worn. We have plans to fix them but as new owners it will take some time. I wish you would have spoken to us prior to putting this in so that we could have had a chance look into things and come up with a satisfactory compromise. As for the Sauce Pan issue all you have to do is ask and we will figure things out. There are many families that come up in groups and our items get misplaced between cabins. We wish you all the best. Sandy Lane Resort

We have been coming here since 1977 and have always been happy to do so. Lately it seems that the cabins could use a spruce up. Our cabin this weekend has lamps that don’t work, a fridge that cycles on/off every 15 minutes all night long. The carpet has been burned by sparks

Thank you for your feedback. I would appreciate it if you could tell us the Cabin number. We are new owners as of August 20th 2018 and we have plans to start renovations this fall. We are going to replace the Carpets with a new Barn Board looking Vinyl flooring that will be much nicer. We agree that the furniture is old and we are planning on replacing the furniture with some very nice cedar furniture from a local vendor in Minden. We will also be updating the Heating cooling systems. If our plans work out we will have minimum four but up to eight cabins renovated within the next 6 months. Feel free to ask us about our cabins next year. Regards, New Owners of Sandy Lane Resort

"In the winter, the 4 chalet style cabins have their own outdoor hot-tub. This is a wonderful bonus that shouldn't be overlooked!"
