About Us

Established in 1989, Shalom by the Lake has expanded to eight beautiful cottages and a loft cottage, most of which are winterized and all of which have a view of the lake. Additionally, whether you’re planning a youth event, adult getaway, family reunion or just want to get together with friends, Shalom’s winterized Retreat Centre holds 40 people. We’ll even cater for your group if you wish.

The playground at Shalom is a great place for your children to play. Swings, slides, climbing and sand. What could be better?

Family, friends and fellowship are what Shalom by the Lake is all about. Whether you are planning a group retreat, a family vacation or a get-away with friends, your hosts Joe and Suzie along with their family, welcome you.

Building Memories

Going for a stroll over Shalom by the Lake’s extensive groomed lawns leaves scope for the imagination. Watch the hummingbirds as they dart around the feeder. Spot a chipmunk stuffing his mouth with a pine cone or just stop and smell the beautiful and varied flowers in Suzie’s garden. Try a new sweet snack in the Tuck Shop. These are memories that will stay with you especially if you have a camera handy.

Jump Into Summer

Water, sunshine and jumping off the dock. What could be more fun? Shalom by the Lake’s beach, water slide and floating dock are just waiting for you to come and enjoy each day you are here.

Soak up the sunshine in the summer, take long walks along the shore in the fall, bundle up for a toboggan ride in the winter or glide smoothly over the water in the canoe when spring arrives again.

All this awaits you whatever season you choose to visit the Algonquin and Haliburton Highlands. Bring your family, your friends, your youth group or whoever wants to join you.

We can’t wait for you to love it here as much as we do!
