Elmhirst’s Resort is located 90 minutes east of Toronto on the north shore of Rice Lake. This unique colony of lakeside cottages began as a humble fishing camp for American families, developed a European market and built a meetings business as well as creating outdoor adventure opportunities for free spirits.
Spread over 240 acres, the Resort, family owned and operated, caters to an international market year round – the fields are grazed by Black Angus Beef cattle – bred and raised for the dining room; free range chickens produce the eggs for the kitchen; vegetable and herb gardens provide the freshest produce and the greenhouse features an array of flowering plants. Our wine cellar features premium Canadian wines not readily available in liquor stores. It’s worth a visit!
The commitment to home-grown is everywhere.
Horseback riding, guided ATV and snowmobile safaris, sightseeing flights, biking, hiking and ski trails, indoor and outdoor pools, tennis and waterfront sports including canoeing, kayaking or boat rentals are available. Need a workout or massage?
Comfortable country style cottages are fully furnished with every amenity – wood burning fireplace, private outdoor deck and dock. Ideal setting for enjoying nature on the waterfront, surrounded by gardens. Have a BBQ on your deck or dine with us in the Pub or Hearthside Room.
Charters to a wilderness lodge, Niagara Falls or destinations you can only imagine are available for adventure seekers.
There’s always something happening at Elmhirst’s Resort on Rice Lake. Cycling and kiteboarding weekends, wine tasting dinners, charity auctions, meetings, banquets, girls reunions and of course the annual migration of Couch Potato Package guests seeking a guilt-free escape from the world. Who doesn’t appreciate a massage in the Spa after a day of cross country skiing? March Madness is designed especially for families and April Murder Mystery Dinners are fun for reunion groups, cottage vacations are appropriate any time of year and the fishing is great spring, summer and fall. Arrive by boat, airplane or car…. plan to getaway and relax with us. Our family looks forward to meeting you.
