My boyfriend and I recently spent a weekend in Halliburton to rent some ATVs with Back Country Tours. I spent a lot of time looking for affordable accommodation and that's when I came across the Loralea Country Inn Resort. We rented Cabin # 6. The cabin came equipped with a queen size bed, full bathroom, and a small kitchen & den. With the exception of the bathroom, everything is in one room, but it was the perfect size for us. Outside, we also had our own BBQ and outdoor fire pit. The resort grounds are also well equipped with tons of indoor and outdoor fire wood, as well as a variety of games (e.g., badminton, horseshoes, etc.).

Suzanne and her husband were very friendly and made us feel welcome right away. They were available for questions whenever we had them, and they even had a large collection of VHS tapes and DVDs that you could borrow.

Not only was the Country Inn Resort one of the most affordable places I found, it was also the closest to the location of Back Country Tours. It was only 10 minutes away! If I return to Halliburton in the future for whatever reason, I will definitely consider staying at the Loralea Country Inn Resort again.

Thanks for the excellent hospitality.

Room tip: Cabin # 6 was nice because it was further removed from the other cabins.

We spent 3 nights at Loralea for the Canadian Family Day long weekend in February, the cottage was right on the lake with a beautiful view. Heather and Bill were excellent hosts, the cottage was clean and all warmed up when we arrived and had everything we needed to have a wonderful long weekend, and they are pet friendly, so our boater collie was as welcome as we were!

Room tip: Cottage #7 is closest to the lake, but doesn't have an indoor wood fireplace, that being said, the electric fireplace is very nice!

My wife, two kids (aged 4 and 2), and I spent 4 days at Loralea over the Family Day Long Weekend. Our goal was simple rest and relaxation away from our typically busy, hectic lives. We had a wonderful time thanks to the way Bill and Heather run this little gem of a resort. Bill builds a ~200ft toboggan run each winter and we had a blast on it. What's nice is that because the resort is small we had it to ourselves each day we went. The cabin we stayed in was very warm and cozy, well furnished and with lots of essentials included. They have a movie wall where you can borrow any number of kids' and regular movies which we enjoyed in the evenings. On Saturday night we wanted to get some ice cream so I called Heather to find out whether a store would be open in the area. She gave me the name of a place but also offered some that she had in her freezer if we weren't able to get any; ultimately I was able to buy some from a store but the fact that she offered some shows how much they care about their guests' experience. Overall, a wonderful little getaway and we hope to come back in the future perhaps in the summer!

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your weekend away with us. It was a pleasure meeting you and your family. As I said when you were here for such young children (4 & 2 yrs old) it was a pleasure to talk with them and there manners were so refreshing. You and your wife should be very proud of the parenting you have done. They are just so well behaved and so considerate of others for there young ages.

Thank you also for leaving our studio cabin #4 as received it is greatly appreciated by myself and Bill.

Take Care and please say hello to the children for us

We hope we get the opportunity to see you all again in the future

Loralea resort owners Heather and Bill run one excellent relaxing resort. It was as if my wife and i owned our own little cottage at their resort. From Heather waiting up for us due to our late arrival to Bills knowledge of Halls lakes ice conditions, they made my wifes first time snowmobiling adventure one to remember and to repeat. The cottage was clean comfortable and stocked with needed supplies to be self sufficent. All that is asked of you is that you leave it as you found it and reporting any problems are addressed right away . Even our pup enjoyed her stay. We will be returning in the near future and have passed on the knowledge of this resort to friends and family. See you soon :)

The Loralea Country Inn resort is a great place to get a total cottage experience for a very fair cost. The cabins are clean, include a stovetop, good sized mini fridge, sink and all your dishes etc. Halls lake is just a one minute walk down the hill of the property and it is clean and peaceful.

You have freedom to roam around the resort and borrow paddle boats, canoe, water toys and use the volleyball net, dock, and beach. The best part is each cabin has its own barbeque that is fully equipped and a fire pit. Heather and Bill even provide the firewood which makes it so convenient! Little details around this resort like the potted flowers and deck swing overlooking the lake really add to the experience as well.

The resort is also pet friendly with very reasonable guidelines around having pets in the cabins. It is hard to find resorts that accept pets as part of the family so this was greatly appreciated as well.

Thank you for your kind words Sara. It was wonderful to meet you and your mother. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We work very hard to try and make sure that our guests have the best possible experience they can with us on Halls Lake in the beautiful Algonquin Highlands. We would like to thank you both for the condition that you left our cabin in. It is greatly appreciated that you left it as received. We are happy that you & your mother & father and we can't forget the 2 pets are returning Aug. 7th to enjoy another stay with us.

See you soon
