Our Story & Perspective

There is something rather special, and clearly Canadian, about the Post House. A sense of nature, and history. A place to recharge and catch a breath of fresh air.

When you request a stay at the Haliburton Post House, you can take time with colleagues, clients, friends, or family. To build stronger connections, share ideas, get to know each other better, and make real impact.

Our venue combines all the comforts you expect from a modern luxury retreat, with the hospitality and charm of lakeside log cottages. That surprising mix is what makes this such a special place for weddings, business or wellness retreats, friends, or families to gather, together for a seamless stay.

That is why the Haliburton Post House has been established as a lakeside resort on the coveted fine lake chain in the Haliburton Highlands. Experience an unforgettable getaway at our luxury retreat.

History & Modern Ease

This all began with a single-family cottage built by a prominent Toronto family, almost a century ago. Then a “post house,” constructed using logs hewn from the property itself, was added to their multigenerational, lakeside escape in 1947. Naturally, this stand-out lodge fast became the property’s distinctive hub.

Fast forward to 2018, when the current owners, who had a history of summers spent nearby, acquired and began to restore and enhance the Haliburton Post House as a complete lakeside retreat where small groups, friends and families can gather in low-key luxury.

Private Chefs & Refined Dining

Nothing brings people together like sharing a toast or gathering around delicious meals. That is why food is offered with your Haliburton Post House stay.

One of the stand-out features of your stay at the Haliburton Post House is the gourmet food that is available. Carefully crafted by our husband-and-wife culinary team, Executive Chef Dan Sanders and Chef de Cuisine Amber Husband, the Post House’s seasonal menus showcase farm-fresh local ingredients and a modern classic take on Canadian cuisine, with plenty of international accents.

Beyond breakfast, lunch, dinner, beverages and snacks, add-on Post House options include s food-driven team-building, pre-arrival fridge stocking, and themed BBQs centred around the original stone-built grill.
