Pet Friendly Resort in Ontario Canada

Family Friendly Cottage Rentals With Your Pet

When you get to our lakeside cottage resort, you will be given space to relax and enjoy cottage living, nature and the scenery.


Pet Friendly Cottage Rentals - The Loralea Country Inn Resort is your pet friendly vacation rental location and child friendly resort in the Haliburton Highlands of Ontario Canada.


If you're like most pet-owners, your pets are a part of the family, and leaving them behind when vacationing can be a traumatic experience on both the pets and owners.


For the enjoyment, comfort and safety of all of our resort guests, pets must be fully trained and socialized and kept within designated areas of the resort, on a leash at all times or in a carrier when pet owners are away from resort.


Pet accommodations are free but if we have to clean (pet hair) the cottage or cabin after the pet stay there will we a clean up fee passed onto pet owner. (Any damage will be included in fee, like broken screens, torn bed spreads or damaged furniture).


All season cottage rental vacations with family accommodations in four or two bedroom cottages along with studio cabins for couples with wood burning fireplaces for those romantic weekends.


Friendly Pets are Welcome - We know you love your pets and find it important to vacation with them, there are some stipulations that we ask all owners to be responsible for and it's our responsibility to consider all guests with or without pets to enjoy their vacation rental stay so that we may continue to be a pet (dog) friendly resort.

  • Anyone caught violating the rules and regulations above will be asked to remove their pets from the premises and there will be no refunds of rental fees.
  • No animals are allowed in the main lodge or dining room.


  • If you have a dog which likes to bark a lot then our suggestion is that you find a rental vacation spot that will allow this. We will not because this will disturb other guests and will not be tolerated. If dog barking starts to be a problem then there will be one warning only to stop. If this continues then you'll be asked to remove your pet from the premises and there will be no refunds of rental. Sorry to be so harsh but this is starting to be a problem and we have responsibilities to all guests and we would like to stay as a pet friendly cottage rental resort.


  • Note: Pets are the responsibility of the owner(s) and the Loralea Country Inn Resort accepts no responsibility for any pets, attended or unattended, on the premises of the resort.


Thank you for helping us keep the resort grounds clean and fun for all. The rules are a must in order for the safety and comfort of all our guests to enjoy their vacation time at the resort.

Dog Friendly Activity Options Off Resort

  • There is an area set aside for dogs (leashed) to be with the family down by the lake but not on the beach area.
  • In the winter when the lake is frozen many guests will take their dogs for a walk where they can have a good run off the leash at the owners risk.
  • There are plenty of walking trails but most require dogs on leashes.
  • The road around the lake makes for a good walk.

We understand that pets like to run free and swim but that's something that we here at the Loralea can't allow for the safety and comfort of all.

Here are a few other options for other places to stay at Vacation with Pets
