About Susan and Michael Martin

We are a family with two teenagers. Our daughter has been going to camp in the area for the past 9 years and we fell in love with the Haliburton Highlands. We are an active family so we enjoy the many activities in the area including swimming, canoeing, kayaking, hiking and skiing.

Susan and Michael Martin purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Susan and Michael Martin chose Haliburton

We chose to purchase this property as we enjoy the quiet bay, great fishing and beautiful sunsets. Lake Kashagawigamog is part of a five lake chain and you can boat right into Haliburton to pick up groceries, check out the local stores and enjoy festivals in the park.

What makes this cottage unique

We have spent many nights sitting on the dock watching the sunset. It's a great way to unwind after a busy week. We have another cottage nearby and spend a lot of time up north so we are always around if you need anything.

Great week on reflection bay

  • 5 of 5

We all very much enjoyed our week at the cottage, and would not hesitate to recommend it to others. The cottage itself is big, tastefully decorated and furnished, and with a lot of tongue and groove pine paneling it gives it a real nice cottage feel. The large kitchen is very well equipped, very functional, and the layout has been well thought out, and it has a large kitchen table able to accommodate everyone. There are many large windows facing the lake, and despite having a few hot days it was usually breezy at the cottage, and the evenings were comfortable for sleeping.

The owners are a pleasure to deal with, and were very clear in answering questions, and in providing instructions on how to care for the cottage.

Heaven in Haliburton!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful property!

The cottage at Reflection Bay was not only as advertised, but much more. The sunsets are spectacular!

Owners Susan and Michael presented us with a very clean and comfortable cottage. The up-to-date kitchen was well-stocked and a pleasure to work in. The large living room with a beautiful view of the lake was comfortable and featured all the amenities of home. The beds were comfortable and bathrooms clean and modern.

The paddle boat and canoe supplied for a quiet trip on the lake were much appreciated.

The location of the cottage is ideal. It's just a short trip into Haliburton Village or to Minden. And just up the road is Butternut Mercantile where you can get a great latte, Cafe Americano or fantastic ice cream...a super little spot!

Thanks again to Susan and Michael for providing such a lovely property for a wonderful vacation with our family and friends. We very much enjoyed our two weeks at Reflection Bay and look forward to returning soon.

A Slice of Heaven on Lake Kashagawigamog

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a wonderful, restful weekend at Reflection Bay with another couple. It's a short drive into Haliburton which is a lovely town in which to shop or browse. The cottage and property are stunning, and dining on the dock as the sun set was breathtaking. We couldn't have asked for a more ideal location and or a more enchanting cottage than Reflection Bay; the owners were incredibly helpful and made us feel so welcomed! I would highly recommend it to all of our friends and family.

Owner's Response: Reflection Bay is truly a "retreat spot" to get away and relax and enjoy natural beauty all at the same time. The close proximity to Minden or Haliburton within a 10 minute drive is really a luxury for casual shopping or groceries. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon, Susan and Michael

As described and highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

My family -- kids 8 and 3 -- stayed here at the end of August. The place is as described and was perfect for our family -- but also for my parents who joined us for part of the week as there is a very well finished master with ensuite.

The water is a bit shallow for our taste but the dock is beautiful. The great room furniture comfortable and the views spectacular. It's only a few minutes from Haliburton which is highly convenient and has a great blue ray tv system (with movies) in the basement for rainy days.

But I must say, we've rented all over the world and often get the feeling that we aren't all that welcome and the owners have only allowed us to give them our money reluctantly.

In contrast, the Reflection Bay property set a completely different tone. There was a bottle of wine to welcome us, laundry detergent for our use, extensive information provided on what to do in the area etc. All through the property were similar little touches that just made things easier.

Someone has really thought this place through and that really made a difference.

Reflection Bay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at reflection bay with our family. It's a beautiful cottage and property - spacious yet very cozy. The dock gives a stunning view of the bay, and we got great use out of the fire pit. It's wonderfully decorated and we felt instantly at home! Owners were very nice and provided lots of information about the area and the cottage itself. We hope to go back again.

Owner's Response: We are always very happy when renters find our cottage to be a "home away from home". We are proud to have place that is relaxing and enjoyable with the sunsets and peacefulness it offers others.
