The grounds.

Venture outside and discover what makes this property such a magical destination. Thoughtfully designed to settle seamlessly into its natural environment, The Bear Stand is enveloped by the natural world around it. With a craggy granite rise behind, two untouched bays out front, and the beauty of the Haliburton Highlands all around, the backdrop for this vacation getaway is simply breathtaking.

THE firepits

Quietly situated on our northernmost point, our lakeside firepit epitomizes the beauty of a natural Haliburton setting. Lean back into an Adirondack and simply admire the view. Or take up seats around the rear forest firepit, load up on roasted marshmallows and let the tales begin. Memories are best made here.


THE forest garden

Designed to provide a constant change of flora and colour throughout the year, our forest gardens were thoughtfully crafted from native species with both sustainability and wildlife abundance in mind. With trees and cascades subtly lit from the forest floor and canopies above, the views are  breathtaking both day and night.


THE hammock

Prime position is reserved for lazing. Our double-sized hammock sits under a native stand of lakeside spruce, overlooking one of our peaceful bays. Watch loons glide by, ducks swim among the lily pads and the beaver do his evening rounds. It’s the perfect place to fall asleep with a book or curl up with special friends.
