Four Season Fun

There's FUN All Year-Round

Seasonal Activities

The Haliburton Highlands offer 4 seasons of awesome outdoor adventure and
we’re well located to provide you with easy access to all of it.

As the Red Umbrella has grown in size it has also grown in amenities offered to make each stay even more enjoyable.

 In the summer months enjoy the kayaks, canoes, paddleboats, outdoor games, water trampoline, and evening bonfires.

When the weather turns colder, enjoy indoor activities such as pool and our foosball tables, and a lounge area with a gas fireplace. 

Spring – Summer – Fall
New this year to the Red Umbrella Inn !! Ski-Mazing Watersports !!

From Victoria Day weekend to Canadian Thanksgiving, Ski-Mazing Water Sports School caters to families, individuals, corporate groups and festivals.  Choose from our array of lesson programs, cottage clinics, tubing and banana boat rides, jet-ski rentals, hydroflight lessons and of course, PARASAILING!


One of our first additions here at the Red Umbrella as new owners was the installation of a new hi-tech Pipefusion floating dock system. We can now accommodate 18 boats, whether you’re staying here and have brought your own or you’re a local cottager coming by boat for Sunday Brunch or an evening ice cream in the summer.

The Red Umbrella Inn has many different types of water craft to choose from – canoes, kayaks, fishing, and paddle boats.


We are ATV vacation friendly (all-terrain vehicle) here at the Red Umbrella Inn. Close to 300 km of crown land trails and over 1700 km of HATVA Ontario ATV trails supported by the Haliburton ATV Association.

Lots of parking on resort for trailers and ATVs, sorry no riding on resort grounds unless in parking lots. You can ride the side of the highway 35 or trailer your machines to the trails. (Approx. 10 minute ride). Ready to plan your next big Haliburton ATVing adventure getaway then give the Haliburton Highlands a try, all levels – beginners to expert.
