About Owner/Manager

Barry and I have had this cottage/house since 1989. Our family has grown up on this lake and the property is kid friendly. We are both professionals that work in the community where we own the cottage. I have had a family cottage on the same lake since 1968. We are both very active and love to swim, canoe, boat, ski (water, downhill, and crosscountry) right from our door. In the winter we love to snowshoe and ski on the lake or along trails very near our house. We both moved to Minden as young adults and made Minden our home.

Owner/Manager purchased this cottage in 1989

Guestbook comments from the owner


“We’ve stayed at Sighing Vista a number of times in recent summers, and have found it to be the most complete and enjoyable cottage rental experience we’ve had. All the prerequisites are there in spades: beautiful lake view, large dock and deck areas with more than ample seating, roomy cottage/home with good beds, and lots of room for family and/or friends. Not to mention 10 minute proximity to Minden, and great walking and cycling roads closely. We recommend it highly.”

Wonderful family get-away!

  • 5 of 5

My 3 adult children and me spent a wonderful week at this Big Bob Lake cottage rental! A very comfortable place...lots of space...everything you could need...everything in working order. We had a mix of weather and because of that the screened-in porch and indoor pingpong table made for some enjoyable indoor time.

Views from both the deck and dock of this cottage were beautiful. Everything was well looked after, clean and organized. Lots of comfortable outdoor seating on the back deck with large dining table along with a high-end bbq to make cooking and dining that much more enjoyable. Friendly and unobtrusive neighbours....close-knit community where dogs feel both welcomed and enjoyed!

Brenda and Barrie made sure that everything was in place for us...very kindly met with us to make sure all was in order.

I highly recommed this cottage for families, friends, mixes comfort with the outdoors magnificently!

Our area is a traditional cottage country area. If you want to do it you can find it within a 30 min. range. Minden is the home of the white water kayaking and canoeing venue for the 2015 PanAm games. There is always someone riding the water or rental and lesson options are available in town. Numerous golf courses available and mountain biking or ride biking right outside the door as well as structured biking trails nearby at Sir Sams or Moose Woods. Many lakes to visit, Haliburton Wildlife and Wolf Preserve for skiing, biking, hiking and of course viewing wolves.

In Minden there is a great Thai restaurant that is one of our favourites and numerous dining option with lake views and waterfront decks. Boat rentals are available on a few local lakes and they will help you get a boat to our lake if this interests you.
