Heavenly Treasures cottage is a tranquil and delightful get-away location. It is surrounded by trees, with a beautiful view of the lake. Things that keep us coming back to rent each year include the beautiful setting, the wide variety of wildlife, swimming in clear deep water off the dock, canoeing, star-gazing, campfires, morning coffee on the dock, and listening to the loons at night. The cottage is well maintained and equipped. Anthony is a gracious and attentive host. You will not be disappointed in your choice to rent this lovely place!
0 # Wonderful week with familyJennifer 2022-08-09 10:31
We were lucky enough to happen upon this cottage for a 3 generation cottage retreat. The cottage was spacious, well appointed and lovely, lots of space and seating for everyone. The kids loved the dock to jump and swim off, and it also provided decent fishing for kids and adults alike. The lake was quiet, and great to explore by canoe. The family of loons added to the atmosphere. There is no WiFi which was not a concern, but be warned there is barely any cell reception as well, don't plan to get any work done here, not that you should, it's supposed to be a vacation. We had a wonderful time, and would definitely consider a return trip.

The cottage was just the ticket for our family reunion. Grandson caught fish for his dinner twice. The water was warm and lovely for swimming. And the chipmunks and squirrels will eat right out of your hand. My son and grandson live in Hawaii, they do not have deer, chipmunks, squirrels, or loons. We saw them all they were delighted.

Thank you Anthony & family for sharing your beautiful cottage with us. We enjoyed the peacefulness and tranquility of the lake as well as all of the amenities provided. It truly is one of a kind!
+1 # Lovely weekMary and Michael 2021-09-16 20:56
We had a lovely week at Heavenly Treasure. The property and lake were peaceful, quiet and private. The view from the huge deck was amazing. Had a nice bonfire down by the lake. Very close to Haliburton, but totally in its own world. Kitchen was very well equipped with a very quiet dishwasher. Lots of hot water and excellent water pressure.

We had a restful and relaxing time during our week at this lovely cottage. It is very spacious, clean and comfortable. Being able to canoe and kayak was great!
The views from the cottage and the water are amazing
We also appreciated Anthony checking in to ensure that everything was okay on arrival.
Thank you Anthony and family for sharing with us!
+1 # Relaxing Family VacationNick 2021-07-29 15:04
Thanks Anthony and family for use of your great cottage. We had a great and relaxing time at the cottage with my family. The cottage was clean and provided all the amenities we needed. It was very quiet and really enjoyed using the canoe and paddle boat everyday out on the lake and swimming plus some fishing. The only downside were the bugs but it could have been time of the year we went (end of June) so make sure to have lots of bug spray and should be fine. I would recommend to anyone looking for a great cottage experience.
+1 # RE: Customer ReviewsRachel H 2019-09-01 15:03
We just loved this cottage. The house itself is pristine and is perfectly stocked with everything you need. The large yard was fabulous for our kids and the lake is quiet with perfect boating and fishing conditions. We had a wonderful week here.
+1 # RE: Customer ReviewsJohn Mayo 2019-08-03 17:11
This was an excellent cottage for our two families. Lots of space for everyone to sleep and the kids loved the loft. Haliburton was very close by for a quick run into town for supplies we needed. The lake was very quiet with plenty of fish. This is definitely a place to come back to again.
0 # Luxury CottageSheila Roewade 2019-07-24 21:20
Our family really enjoyed this beautiful, spacious cottage, overlooking the picturesque non-motorized lake. Big windows and a vaulted ceiling offers load of room to think, nap or gaze at the huge back yard. Lots to do, including kayaking, canoeing, swimming, family games and a huge porch to bbq or just relax and watch the sunset. Hope to visit again next year. Thanks for being a great host Anthony!
0 # Great CottageGary 2019-07-15 15:57
Perfect cottage for a relaxing family vacation. The cottage itself is spacious and well equipped with 3 levels of sleeping areas and 3 bathrooms, as well as a washer/dryer to keep all of your towels clean. Beautiful setting on quiet lake with no motors, we spent most of our time on the dock, in the shade of a nice pine tree. There is plenty of sun as well on the swim raft. It's a perfect lake for canoes and kayaks, we pretty much had the lake to ourselves. If you are looking for a peaceful, serene setting, this is ideal.
It was a pleasure dealing with Anthony, you won't find a nicer owner.
+1 # Great ViewJOSEPH SUPPA 2018-07-21 18:16
An amazing view from both the floating dock and the cottage its self. Anthony has taken the time to appoint the cottage with everything you will need for a great time as well as lots of items to keep the kids and adults entertained. A quiet and relaxed environment, great fishing for the kids. We had one small issue and the owner addressed it immediately and with the consideration and care that many of us have not come to expect from a customer service relationship. Thank you Anthony for a wonderful time. We would gladly recommend your property to anyone.
0 # Great Weekend for all agesHans 2017-10-10 22:00
This is a wonderful cottage.
Anthony was patient and helpful - he opened to our request to change the staying date, advised us where the rice cooker is after realizing us are Chinese.
The Sunset & Sun rise was gorgeous, the cottage/beach face to the south side so you can see sun/moon rise from your left side and the sun set on the right side, no blocking when you sit comfortably on the dock/swim raft.
The direction was clearly labelled so you do not need to panick when you cannot find the address from Google map, you will not miss it.
Haliburton everything you need, Fishing rod, tape, warms/daily license from outdoorplus (very cool store, also have guns, cross bow if you got license). There is also a skyline park that you can veiw the beautiful landscape of highland east (less than 20 mins)
The deposit was returned in the same day with no problem.
All in all, I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a cottage trip.
+1 # Lovely getawayBengel Family 2017-08-19 22:49
We had a relaxing and enjoyable one week family holiday this August. We lucked out with great weather! There were plenty of activities for our four children; including boating, swimming, exploring islands and sitting by the campfire. The cottage was beautiful and very relaxing. We had a wonderful stay on a quiet and clean lake. We also enjoyed visits from the turtle along the shoreline. The loon family was lovely to watch and some great fishing! We would highly recommend this cottage for anyone looking for a quiet and peaceful getaway! Thanks!
0 # Perfect place for peaceful timeJennifer 2016-09-05 03:41
This place was just perfect for our family trip. The cottage had more than what I expected from the website pictures, very spacious and clean. The lake was a good size for canoeing and kayaking and plenty of fishes to catch. My 8 year old boy caught a arm length bass with a Spider-Man kiddy fishing rod.
I would recommend this cottage to any one who is looking for a nice get away trip in comport of home.
0 # Wonderful Vacation!Adrian and Frances 2016-08-31 21:39
Thank you Anthony for renting us your beautiful peaceful cottage! We all had a wonderful time kayaking and canoeing. The location of the cottage is very private and the lake is fun to explore with a few small islands to paddle around and lots of wildlife to see. We saw an otter, a family of loons, two great blue herons, pileated woodpeckers and a black bear.

We highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking to get away from the busyness of life for some peace and quiet and relaxation time.

We came as a family group of eight people, and we all agreed that we had a fantastic vacation!
0 # RE: Customer ReviewsKent & Catherine 2016-08-18 11:10
We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay on this quiet, clean lake which provided many excellent opportunities for swimming, kayaking, canoeing and fishing.
The cottage was well equipped, spacious and had sufficient overhead and floor fans to keep us comfortable during a major heat wave.
Would love to have been able to extend our stay for another two weeks since it was such an enjoyable experience.
0 # RE: Customer ReviewsTom Cistone 2016-08-12 10:37
We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It was a very relaxing and peaceful vacation for our family. The smallmouth bass fishing is excellent. We used the canoe, kayak and paddle boat on this beautiful lake. We had camp fires in the evening under the bright stars and heard the loons in the mornings and evenings. It was a great time!
0 # RE: Customer ReviewsJYP and family 2016-07-24 22:55
The whole family really enjoyed the cottage and the lake. It has very calm surroundings and perfect to swim, canoe or do some stand-up paddleboard. We really appreciated doing fire inside or outside, depending on the weather. Thanks for sharing your wonderful cottage and enabling us to have a very beautiful and relaxing week. I would recommend it to everyone especially if they want to spend a peaceful vacation.
0 # Wonderful WeekTeri 2016-07-11 10:11
This cottage has great views and is big and clean. Fishing off the dock was great not only for my 4 year old but the adults enjoyed it also. Lots of fish to catch. Swimming was also fantastic and the Canoe & Paddle boat got lots of use. A very relaxing week for the adults and lots adventures for the kids. Would love to return again one day!
Thanks for sharing your home with my family :)

We have stayed at Heavenly Treasure near Haliburton a number of times and look forward to returning this summer. The cottage is open and spacious, with full amenities for cooking and dining. The cottage boasts an ideal waterfront with good swimming and a canoe and paddleboat for fishing and touring the lake. There are plentiful smallmouth to over 3 pounds bass in the lake. Anthony is ever helpful and accommodating.
0 # Fall getawayAnn marie 2015-10-26 21:28
Thank you Anthony, October at your cottage was a peaceful and relaxing experience my family won't forget. We have never rented in October usually in the summer, but fall was even better, the beautiful trees in reds and yellows the fresh air and we where so lucky to have nice weather, my husband and son even caught fish off the doc.. The cottage is amazing, big spacious and clean.. Would recommend this cottage. Thanks Anthony !!
0 # RE: Customer ReviewsRingo 2015-10-07 19:35
I've been looking for a waterfront cottage myself in the past 2 years but couldn't find any that fits all my criteria. When I got to this cottage. Wow, it's what I've been looking. Beautiful home, medium size lake, it was so quiet that I could hear the people on the other shore which is about 500m away. Had a lot of good memories. Will rent again in the future. My only concern is we have quiet a few new visitors daily (flies) though we keep all the windows and doors shut all the time. Wonder how they get it and what's the situation like during black fly and mosquito season.
0 # ThanksAnthony 2016-06-28 22:56
Hi Ringo, Thanks for the kind review and the question. It is very normal in early Spring and late Fall to have flies get into the cottage. It is a mystery, yearly they will just appear, I guess it is part of cottage living as we are in the midst of woods. It is never an issue with mosquito and black fly.

0 # RE: Customer ReviewsAndrea 2015-08-15 20:32
My husband and I had a wonderfully, relaxing stay at this immaculate cottage. The lake is generally warm and it was much quieter than others we've visited due to the lack of motorized watercraft zipping about. We favoured the canoe for morning and evening exploring when the lake became so still it was like glass. Loons were very prevalent, we could have sat on the dock for hours if we hadn't gone swimming so much. We loved the location as well as the generous waterfront. Wildlife is prolific but the bugs weren't! It was the perfect place to rest and escape the city. Many thanks to Anthony, a well-organized, helpful owner who ensured our stay was beyond expectations. Highly recommend this cottage!
0 # Amazing family vacationJaime 2015-07-13 22:59
My family and I had an amazing week at this beautiful cottage. It was so much more then we could have hoped for. Calling it a cottage doesn't seem right as it is much more like a summer home. It is beautiful, clean and I believe the most peaceful lake we have ever cottaged on. The cottage has plenty of room and beautiful views! The neighbours are very friendly. The fishing was awesome!!!!! lots of fish to catch whether with live bait or lures. My daughter loved the swimming and said it was fantastic. We enjoyed exploring the lake using the different boats available... there is definitely something for everyone here. The bugs were on the bad side this year, but that seems to be every where this season. We recommend taking extra bug spray and long clothes for night time campfires or other activities. They bugs do seem to let up later at night around 10 p.m. Thank you Anthony and family for sharing your wonderful summer home with us!!! We loved every moment!
0 # AwesomeRenuka 2014-09-30 08:41
Great place to go for quiet and rest! The "cottage" is lovely warm home that invites you to unwind and enjoy the beauty of nature. Spacious and comfortable with great amenities. Though we had the perfect weather to be outdoors, I was content at times to be up in the loft enjoying the magnificent view of the lake. The large windows bring the outdoors in! Awesome place to stay!
0 # Beautiful CottageJennifer 2014-09-06 18:21
We enjoyed our week at this lovely cottage and I enjoyed my conversations with the owner - Anthony. He seems to be a genuinely kind person. The cottage is beautiful, spacious and well equipped. My husband and sons enjoyed fishing and found that the dock proved to be an ideal place to catch fish - with and without bait! This beautiful, quiet lake is a safe place to swim and canoe. Everyday we canoed and kayaked to the opposite end of the lake. The lake is so serene that we found times when we hear absolutely no sound - it was so amazingly peaceful. We saw humming birds, turtles, chipmunks, deer and lots of fish. We look forward to returning.
0 # RE: Customer ReviewsJessica 2014-09-01 16:52
This cottage is truly a gem - we had such a fantastic time being one with the nature; stargazing, kayaking, canoeing and paddle boating, listening to the looms callings late at night was an out-of-the-worl d experience.

Inside the cottage, it is clean, comfortable and well-stocked that you will find everything you need for the holiday. The pine interior also adds the rustic feel and look to the cottage.

This is the place to be if you desire tranquility and a breathtaking nature retreat from the face-paced world.

Thank you Anthony and Family for sharing this magical place with us; we already miss it and hopefully to return in the near future.

This cottage is truly a gem - we had such a fantastic time and were one with the nature in many ways: stargazing, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boating were amazing, the location and nature setting of the cottage is serene and tranquil, it is the place to be if you are looking for some R & R time in this fast-paced world.

The inside of the cottage is also well-stocked and easy to use, it is comfortable, clean and has everything you need for a cottage, the pine interior also gives that rustic look and feel of nature.

Thanks Anthony and Family, we will miss this cottage and hopefully to return in the near future.

All the best,

Peaceful and refreshing! The cottage is beautiful, well-equipped, with great views of the lake. There is lots of space, the kitchen has everything you need, the BBQ works well, DVD and big-screen TV are great for evenings or wet days. The lake is quiet and serene - great for canoeing and kayaking!
0 # Peaceful Nature RetreatTammy 2014-08-10 20:30
We just returned from a week's vacation at this cottage. Anthony went out of his way before and during our stay to ensure that we had everything that we needed. The cottage is well stocked and very comfortable with lots of space for sleeping. We enjoyed seeing all the wildlife, sitting on the deck and reading, canoeing & kayaking around the motor restricted lake (it is larger than most motor restricted lakes that we have visited), fishing (my husband caught dinner one night) and having fires in the very safe fire pit. We also did some bike riding on a nearby rail trail and on the roads, though the roads are very hilly and the trail is, unfortunately, shared by ATVs which makes the surface lose for bike riding. Overall this vacation was exactly what we were looking for. We hope to be back next summer!

Thank you for allowing us to experience, live and share a little of your Heavenly Treasure.

Our first thought was, "the website pictures don't do the cottage justice" probably because it's difficult to capture a sense of comfort and connection to the surroundings in a photograph. Walking in through the front door, my family immediately felt at home‎ -- there's a feeling of love that went into the construction of the cottage. 

We cooked a lot, caught plenty of fish including a 2lb largemouth bass, explored the tranquil waters in a canoe, breathed the clean air, followed many birds such as cooper's hawks, an owl and playful hummingbirds, and enjoyed the evening solitude under some magnificent starry skies. 

There's a Serbian proverb that fits perfectly here: "Be humble for you are made of earth. Be noble for you are made of stars". 

‎Thank you, again, for reminding us how beautiful life is when we take a moment to remember.

This cottage is a gem. It has all of the comforts of home, and we were very comfortable there during our week long stay.
The waterfront is large, and very peaceful. The water is great for swimming, both the kids and adults enjoyed jumping from the dock! The paddle boat, kayak and canoe were perfect for exploring the lake.
The cottage and grounds are even more beautiful than the pictures online, and we would recommend this cottage to anyone who is looking for a relaxing cottage vacation.

We had a great experience with Anthony and Heavenly Treasure cottage right from start to finish. What a beautiful cottage and property, and a friendly and caring owner! It's been our pleasure dealing with Anthony and staying at his family's beautiful piece of property. We will definitely be renting from him in the future! The town of Haliburton was very close so that was convenient as well. Thank you for a relaxing vacation, we both needed it! Our only complaint was that we didn't stay longer!
0 # ContentmentBob & Margot 2014-07-07 15:09
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your cottage. We were very impressed with the peaceful surroundings and the wildlife. Even as far north as we have travelled in Ontario, we have not seen the frequency of deer, turtles and other critters that have made your area their home - something that you and your fellow owners should be proud to have maintained that balance.

Personally, I enjoyed canoeing without the noise of motorboats. As "quite" cool as the water was in early June, I thoroughly enjoyed short but refreshing swims each day and sitting on the swim raft to read.

As a suggestion, maybe easier access to the water from shore for swimming would be nice.

Thank you both for your hospitality - we will be in touch.

What a lovely place you have! It was a relaxing and comfortable place. We have enjoyed the nature and the different activities; walking, canoeing, boat ride,.... It was good that it was not too far to drive to town- we managed an afternoon of fish and chips and ice cream - that was yummy. The quietness of the place helped me to rest and refocus. Thank you so much! Bless you....

From the moment you enter this lovely cottage the view is breathtaking embracing the true beauty of nature. The cottage itself is clean and spacious and provides all the amenities of home. This is a great place to make lasting family vacation memories, or just rest and relax enjoying the quiet and tranquil surroundings. The children delighted in endless hours jumping off the new swim dock. Utilizing the picnic area at the shoreline was our best option, The paddle boat gave us the opportunity to explore this lovely lake. With the village of Haliburton only a short drive away, the area provided us with great options for dining, live theater, movies, studio tours, hiking trails,shopping and many local scheduled events. I would definitely recommend this wonderful cottage experience to everyone . Note that the owner is very conscientious in his efforts to ensure that your stay is enjoyable. Thank you for a great holiday.

I've vacationed at this cottage a number of times and it truly is a piece of heaven. It is very peaceful. Amidst great walks, quiet canoe rides around the small lake - no motor boats so is nice and quiet. Great wildlife - deer, turtles, birds. The cottage is more like a home than a cottage. - great fireplace for cooler nights - nice DVD with large screen TV for movie nights - all around a great place to stay.

Wow what a delightful place to rest and recoup from the hectic city life. The first time i went we saw deer, turtles and lots of birds. It is a very peaceful place. The cottage is more like a home than a cottage. You won't be disappointed. You can go for great walks in the wooded areas on the roads. Feels very safe and is very clean. Go for it - you won't be disappointed

A warm and cozy retreat for the family which truly felt right at home the moment you stepped into the cottage.Spaciou s and comfortable. The lake offered peace and quiet that is so hard to come by in the city. There were plenty of outdoor activities here to experience like swimming, canoeing, kayaking, fishing and many more. These activities were so much fun to do and we enjoyed it very much. Will recommend this cottage to anyone who is up for fun and bonding with friends and family.
0 # MissionaryLisa 2013-03-12 12:01
This place truly is a heavenly treasure! I am a long -term missionary, serving in Africa and this is the ideal place to come away and rest. I have stayed at the cottage several times and enjoy the peace, quiet, close to town, places to walk and kayaking. I would recommend this cottage to anyone but if you have small children you would need to stay close as the shoreline drops off quite quickly and there is no beach area for the kids to play. I am blessed to be able to have enjoyed this piece of heaven and I know you will too!
0 # Quiet peaceful family vacation!!!!Kimberley 2013-02-04 11:51
What a wonderful cottage for a family vacation. Lots of space and very clean. Quiet lake with lots to explore. The kids enjoyed exploring in the forest and biking around the area. The only thing they could add to the cottage is a swim raft to allow the kids to jump into the water and maybe a sand area close to the shore. The shoreline is rocks and lilly pads which was fun for the kids to explore for frogs and fish. LOTS of great fishing, you can catch fish right off the dock. My son caught his first fish (two pound small mouth bass) right from the dock. Friendly and considerate family who rent the cottage as well! I would recommend it for sure and even more if they add a swim raft!! Thanks for a great holiday.
0 # Swim RaftAnthony 2013-07-08 14:11
Hi Kimberley, Thanks so much for your review or feed back. I've taken your advice regarding adding a swim raft. I've now installed an 8' x 8' Swim Raft that the kids could jump off. In addition I've connected or linked the swim raft to the main dock for easy access. The main dock is now extended to over 40 feet in length, great for fishing and relaxing. (Owner: Anthony)
