Planning an Ontario Winter getaway? Have you explored the Haliburton Highlands region? During my winter stay in Haliburton, I was fortunate to stay at the Pinestone Resort which proved to be the perfect location for our Ontario winter weekend getaway.
Pinestone Resort and Conference Centre Haliburton
Waking up to a winter snowfall I breathed a sigh of relief knowing that everywhere I would be driving was nearby. The town of Haliburton was a 4-minute drive, our dog sledding adventure a 45-minute drive away and our snowshoeing trail a mere 15-minute drive.
The Snowmobilers all staying at the resort also agreed. The Pinestone is located along the Ontario snowmobile trail making it accessible for those on snowmobile trips.
The Pinestone Double Room
We had a standard room in the main building of the hotel. Two queen-sized beds, a table with two chairs and a chaise lounge. Very cozy room with a great view of the hotel grounds including the pond that was frozen over and covered in fresh snow. Quite beautiful!
Dining at Pinestone Resort Haliburton
We enjoyed a breakfast buffet in the morning which included eggs, bacon, fresh pastries, yogurt and cereal, served in the main dining area of the hotel.
We also had dinner in the dining room at dusk. The location is perfect for a romantic couples getaway in Ontario.
Rent a Cabin or a Room
The Pinestone Resort features some cottages on the property if you want a winter cottage experience. Many of the cottages were filled up with snowmobile enthusiasts and those attending the annual dogsled races were held on the Pintestone resorts grounds. The hotel is very dog-friendly!
The only unfortunate part of this hotel is that it does not sit on a lake or body of water. The grounds are beautiful, and there is an indoor and outdoor pool, nice trails to walk or cross country ski and a golf course for warmer months.
