Winter Romance

IWinter Romance  I never considered Winter as a romantic season.  When you are working and commuting in the snow it just seems cold and aggravating.  Winter at Ogopogo is another story.  Its a Winter Wonderland and truly is serene and romantic.  When you get to enjoy the beauty of the snow, the sun shining on the lake, the utter quiet……… it just becomes very peaceful and calming.  If you haven’t tried a winter vacation you should consider it.  You do have to dress and pack warmly but snow shoeing on the lake is just stunning and you might even see some deer walking on the lake!  The skating rink at night is lit and romance is just in the air as you glance up into the sky and see all the beautiful stars.  Of course when you are done outside you get to come inside to a beautiful fireplace and snuggle and enjoy each other.  Consider a winter get away in our Winter Wonderland at Ogopogo!

Ice Fishing on Mountain Lake

If you love fishing you should consider ice fishing with your family, a group of friends or your loved one. Spend the day in a heated hut, playing cards,  catching up, catching lake trout, white fish and even some Walleye!  Take a break during the day and ice skate on our rink during the down time.  We would love to have you……we have lots of mid week availability.  DCIM100GOPRO

Thinking of a lakeside wedding………………..

We had the pleasure of hosting our first Ogopogo wedding this past summer and it was just spectacular.  The bride and groom had a warm weather day, got married right at the water front, local cottagers were on their boats watching their ceremony and it all ended with a great dance under the stars.  Do you  or someone you know want a casual lakeside wedding where your guests experience a destination wedding experience thats just over 2 hours away.  Think about it and check out the pics

Mini vacations required for good mental health

People who take frequent vacations have lower stress, less risk of heart disease, a better outlook on life, and more motivation to achieve goals.  Getting away for even 2 days will have positive impact.  Come to Ogopogo Resort for 2 days to do as much or as little as you want.  You can sit on your porch and read a book, watch tv, partake in the seasonal resort activities or partake in all the outdoor activities that the Haliburton Highlands has to offer.  A positive mental break can recharge your batteries.  Take care!
