Enjoy this newly renovated (2022) cottage with an addition that provides a fabulous relaxing view of Miskwabi lake. The beach and waterfront are shared with only 20 other cottages on a small dead end street (not open to the public). Both the upper and lower portions of the cottage have large window views of the lake and each walk out to the large deck or lower patio. There is also a great south view of a small valley of wooded area right on the property. This is a common area for early morning deer or wild turkey to wander through along side a small creek. This is a fabulous place to relax and enjoy with your family and friends. The town of Haliburton has many great adventures and shopping for further entertainment.

The cottage was beautifully decorated and with 2 separate floors and 2 baths we had plenty of room for 6 adults and 4 kids. The view of the lake from the deck was gorgeous. —Gerianne S. (Aug 2023)


We enjoyed our time at Turtle Cove! We made good use of the kayaks and pedal boat as well as spending lots of time on the wrap around balcony taking in the great view. The younger generation appreciated having their own space downstairs.  —Ellaine B. (Aug 2023)


The cottage was fully equipped with everything we could have needed. It was very clean The dock was excellent and the watercraft was in good repair. Deborah W (Jul 2023)


New renovations are spectacular! A lot of attention paid to the decor, the place felt very inviting. The front deck looking out onto the lake was amazing. Loved the zero gravity lounge chairs, I need those in my life! Loved having the kids on one level and the adults on another with a coffee bar and sink.  Andrea L. (Aug 2022)


The cottage was bigger than we expected, actually, the open layout was amazing! We loved that main floor and deck so much. Plenty of space for sleeping, and the beds were quite comfortable. Kitchen was well-stocked, there wasn’t really anything that we couldn’t find. Amazing view of the water, we sat on the deck or down by the water the whole time 🙂 Way more water toys like canoe, kayaks, etc than we expected, so that made it really fun. It was nice how you were really prepared, like roasting sticks already down by the fire, etc, those thoughtful things really meant a lot. Matsell Family (July 2022)


Absolutely wonderful gem of a cottage! So happy I found this spot to make memories with the little ones and perfect setup for our two families. Ian kept regular communication and was available for my questions. Location is right on the water with a few steps to the private dock (where we spent most of our time), with lots of water toys (kayaks, paddle boards). Highlight was seeing the massive turtles! There is a huge deck lending itself to big bbq, and yard games. Thanks for hosting us and hopefully we can return again! Allison S. (Jul 2022)
