Bliss is a cottage experience designed for reconnecting with nature, beauty, and loved ones. The owners have tended to all the finer details in order to offer you an inspiring retreat in this gorgeous Haliburton waterfront property. You will be staying in a newly built, beautiful log home loaded with amenities. Bliss cottage is perched on a sloping landscape amidst the treetops, peering out over sparkling Little Kennisis lake. The cottage boasts a living room with cathedral ceilings; gorgeous stone chimney fireplace; expansive windows overlooking the lake; a dining room with stunning lakeview; a fully equipped kitchen; three bedrooms, including a spacious master bedroom loft; a beautiful separate Guesthouse; and a large deck with a screen-enclosed gazebo and open air hot tub.

Cozy winter getaway for the family

  • 5 of 5

Cozy winter getaway for the family. Well maintained. Property was as depicted online. Particularly enjoyed the hot tub with the kids as the snow fell. Convenient location close to Sir Sam's ski hill. Had a minor issue with the wifi which was quickly resolved. Owners were responsive and clearly take pride in their property. Would highly recommend.

Intimate, cozy and just the right amount of rustic

  • 5 of 5

Stayed mid May 2017. The area is beautiful. We visited the Haliburton Wildlife Reserve and did the Walk in the Clouds which was a unique experience. The cottage decor was beautiful. The whole experience was wonderfully relaxing, a perfect break from the city.
