Email Miners' Bay Lodge

Miners' Bay Lodge, family-owned and operated since 1938, is a family-oriented summer resort in the beautiful Highlands of Haliburton. Located approximately 2 hours north-east of Toronto on highway 35, our 70-acre property sits on the shores of Gull and Round Lakes. We are surrounded by lakes, there being more than 500 in the county and these, along with Haliburton's wooded hills, make a most attractive setting for your holidays. Our summer season runs from mid-June to Labour Day.

Miner's Bay LodgeWith a repeat guest rate of close to 90%, "regular" guests are given first opportunity to book accommodation. We are able to accommodate reservation requests for most summer weeks after March 1st, having heard from our repeat guests and knowing what accommodation is available to offer to potential new guests.  

Generally speaking, Rooms are more frequently available than Cabins and Cottages, and our first week of the season (the third week in June) has the most available accommodation.
