Life’s pleasures are simple at Eagle Lake. “There’s no noise,” says Derek Zoldy. With no artificial light, nights are dark at his family’s log cabin in the Haliburton Highlands. You can see thousands of stars. “The only sounds you hear are animals and rushing water from the falls down by the lake,’’ he says.
Derek and his wife Casey bought six acres of wooded hillside near Sir Sam’s Ski & Bike Area seven years ago. Avid skiers, they first saw the area in the late 90s, when they came up for a first-aid competition for ski patrollers. “We just fell in love with it up here,” says Derek, a mining engineer who designs and builds tunnels for subways, water supplies and sewer systems in Canada and the United States.
