HALIBURTON, Ont. — Choice Hotels Canada has added the Pinestone Resort, a rustic lodge and conference centre in the Haliburton Highlands, to its Ascend Hotel Collection — a network of upscale resorts, historic properties and boutique hotels that offer guests a uniquely local experience.
“We’re delighted to have such a beautiful hotel and talented owners, the Aurora Group, join the Ascend Hotel Collection,” says Rob Alldred, director of Membership Development, Ascend Hotel Collection at Choice Hotels Canada. “It is a truly special experience as a retreat in the heart of cottage country.”
The Aurora Group is a family owned company with extensive experience in hospitality and management. The company has grown rapidly over the past few years and is actively engaged in new project development in North America.
This full-service hotel and conference centre offers meeting and event space, a golf course, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and a spa. The resort, set on 160 acres of beautiful country landscapes in the Haliburton Highlands, consists of 102 rooms, suites and chalets.
Renovations planned over the next couple of years are in keeping with the architectural elements and exposing natural features, with a focus on the interior public spaces. The choice of textures, such as exposed wood, stone and brick, will add character to all the spaces and the natural colour palate will create an appearance of warmth to the overall aesthetic.
