Interaction with guests
I live on the ground floor and the rental unit is the self-contained three bedroom unit upstairs. My two dogs, Big Dee and Mustang Sally, have their own private yard or, if you wish, you can open the gate between the yards to allow all dogs to play together. Your choice. As for me, I do my best to stay out of my guests' way and to be as unobtrusive as possible. Still, I'm available to answer questions or resolve issues as needed. You'll see me if I'm gardening or cutting the lawn. In the hottest part of the summer, I may indulge in a dip in the river at a time when it does not interfere with your vacation.

More than a cottage...this was home away from home. Extremely spacious, clean and quiet. We enjoyed the morning sunrise from the wrap around deck or out on the dock. Kids had lots of fun floating down the river, jumping off the docks and ending the...More

About the neighbourhood
Day trips depend on scheduled local events. Haliburton, Minden, Coboconk, Kinmount, Fenelon Falls and Norland are all within easy driving distance. Both Kinmount and Minden have a Saturday morning Farmer’s Market (seasonal) that are popular. Kinmount, Coboconk and Norland often have events happening in their fair grounds that are kid-friendly. One of the most popular destinations is the Wolf Centre in Haliburton. If the wolves are visible, it can be a real thrill and also educational. One of my personal favourite local attractions is the Highland Cinemas. The owner has created a crazy multiplex, in the middle of the forest, that shows first-run movies with digital/HD quality. Worth the ticket price just for the experience.
How to get there
The Gull River PostCard is just under two hours north/northeast of the DVP/401 intersection (Toronto). It is an easy drive - full instructions provided when a booking is firm. Look for Norland on a map for reference. 20 minutes south of Minden 10 minutes west of Kinmount 10 minutes north of Coboconk When guests bring dogs, I ask that we introduce guest dogs and my dogs at a neutral site, a local park, about four minutes drive from The PostCard. I ask that we do the intros off lead for the comfort of the dogs. This usually takes less than five minutes - dogs are very quick at deciding to be friends. However, that five minute investment makes all the difference during your stay. My dogs feel their friend has come for a visit and are much quieter and more relaxed about the arrangements. I'm sure that is true for the visiting dogs also.
