Real Estate in Haliburton County ON

Homes in Haliburton include a mix of suburban single-family homes and rugged cabins and cottages on one of the many lakes in the area. 

All of these homes have excellent utilities and amenities to stay comfortable all year round. Those on the water also have docks of their own for boating or swimming, and those inland benefit from large yards to enjoy the outdoors as well.

Other common features include fireplaces, large porches or decks, and in some cases large great rooms with soaring windows for taking in the beautiful outdoor views.

Wood frame construction is the most common aesthetic, consisting of lap or straight horizontal siding and painted frame accents, complete with relatively simple windows, and brick, stone, or concrete foundations.
