This was kind of disappointing to get in my email today.
The current basic install price is $675. We’re just starting to pull together the details for our expansion to Maple Lake, so I don’t have specific dates just yet, but our hope is for before the start of summer.
If you know of others on the lake who are interested, please ask them to fill out the inquiry form on our website blah, blah, blah.
Um. no thanks. $700 plus $60 per month for three months, tops?
Sorry. I’ll drive in to Haliburton and pony up cash to use their Interweb.
The things that these people are not getting that “Frank’s Way” is a street with access after one travels to closer to shore, to a number of cottages. I would think the possibility of snagging so many customers at once would affect that ridiculous installation fee. I’ll wait or find something else. It’s never easy. <sigh>
OK, so here’s a nice picture. No date on it. My bro and his wife.

I‘ve noticed that recently folks are searching for “Maple Lake Marinas.”
I’ll look into it further but for now I can show you Northland Marine & Storage–B on the map–which is pretty close to Maple Lake. I have to pass by it near the Hwy 35 and 118 juncture. I know of two public boat launches on Maple Lake as well. I’ll illustrate one to the best of my abilities –considering that Google has failed, despite Maple Lake’s size and population to put Maple Lake on Google maps! I need to get more info on the exact location of the other Maple Lake public boat launch.

EDIT/ According to the folks at the lovely Mountain Trout House Marina, the Haliburton Highlands (see photo) got about 10″ of snow this weekend, which they said was the most snowfall they’ve gotten this season. They seem very excited about it. They also, besides having a lovely marina, rent snowmobiles.
Haliburton Eye In The Sky Webcam
(Previously) I’ve been hearing of very severe weather passing east across Canada so I thought I’d try to get some photographic evidence. The main highways at least, appear to be clean as a whistle. The only public webcam that I’ve located in Haliburton is non-functional at the moment (why does that not surprise me?). EDIT/ The official webcam seems to be working fine but it’s nighttime and the view appears to be of the highway. I’ll check back later.
EDIT/ The Jack Bush Gallery has a photograph of Maple Lake posted on 03.07.08.
There’s a lot of snow.
When you were little, how old did you think you’d be when you got married? Were your predictions accurate?
I never gave a single thought to getting married until I was age 21, hadn’t done anything with my life, had friends who were graduating from college and I felt like a failure.
So I eloped with who would become the bio-dad of my eldest son.
Then my mom put together a nice wedding in Orillia, Ontario.
My spouse and I honeymooned at Maple Lake.

Last summer, whilst at our cottage in Ontario, Canada I realized that something was missing. Many years ago my grandparents built three cottages on a beautiful, clean lake in the Haliburton Highlands. The property is quite large and one had to take a dirt (later gravel) road to make their way to the cottages. After it had been some years since my grandparents’ passing and the three cottages had been willed to their three adult children, the gravel road was named in honour of my grandfather. It thrilled me to see his name on the street sign yet at the same time I felt a bit sad that the force behind our ever having the chance to be part of the beauty there was in fact, my grandmother. I resolved that this summer I would get a custom-made sign to honour my grandmother’s memory and I would place it not on the road but next to our cottage.
NOTE: I’m not sure “who” in my family reads this blog–everyone is welcome but I feel compelled to say again that this is about me and what I think and feel. We all have our own memories to keep. The most precious I have other than those of my own children are of my grandmother. It’s imperative to me that she never be forgotten. My idea about the sign is just that–an idea. The sign pictured, the name–that may change as I have more time to think on it. What won’t change is that I want a tangible “sign” that says she was once there because for me her spirit will always be at Maple Lake.
