Living in Minden

Minden Hills Township, usually shortened to Minden, has a steady population of just over 5,500 friendly residents. But when the weather gets warm, the town comes alive with families looking for a quiet summer retreat.

Haliburton doesn’t come up as often as Kawartha Lakes or Muskoka, but it boasts some of the healthiest lakes in all the province, including the stunning Kashagawigamog Lake Chain. Just outside Minden lies the Gull River, a prime destination for thrill-seeking kayakers and canoers. The Minden Wild Water Preserve was even chosen as the site for the Pan Am Games boating events! For a more laid-back experience, look no further than Minden’s swimmable lazy river, which weaves right through the centre of town.

Although Minden attracts many seasonal visitors, the fun doesn’t have to end with summer. The fall colours draw motorcyclists from around Southern Ontario, and with winter comes fantastic opportunities for snowmobiling, skating, and ice fishing. Plus, the cozy restaurants and breweries that fill the town centre are open year-round.

Living in Minden lets you indulge in a quiet life away from the bustling city. To this day, Minden is a hidden gem that offers the same beauty of the Muskoka and Kawartha regions in the a smaller package.

Building a Home in Minden

While some homeowners gravitate towards modern styles, rustic features like timber beams and tall, stone fireplaces are alive and well to those building a home in Minden. It’s the perfect place to build a classic Canadian cottage home.

Many of Haliburton County’s 600 lakes have room to build, and the cost is highly affordable compared to similar communities further north and west. Here in Mindon, the dream of building a lakefront cottage home is far more attainable than it would be in Muskoka.
