About the Haliburton Post House

This storied escape all began with a single-family cottage nestled on the southwest edge of Lake Kashagawigamog in Ingoldsby, almost a century ago. Then in 1947, a “post house,” was built from logs hewn from the property itself which became the hub of this clearly Canadian compound.

Fast forward to 2018 when it was acquired by Glencedar Inc., a company owned by Joel Baker, and began to reinvent and restore the Post House as a complete luxury lakeside retreat where small groups can reconnect, in total privacy and rustic luxury, forge new memories and enjoy adventures of all kinds.
