Dive into a Local’s Signature Experience

COVID-19: Please see our full statement here.

Our resort is open and offering long term rentals. Our office hours are 9-4 daily.

The health & safety of our guests, partners and staff is the top priority for us at Elmhirst’s Resort. With the utmost care and attention, we have enhanced all sanitation practices in our cottages, and as a result, all private lakefront cottages remain available for rent. Our dining rooms are closed, but we continue to offer a limited special menu for in-cottage dining delivery. Please see our special menu here.

Elmhirst’s Resort, Conference Centre, Wedding Venue and Spa is nestled on the beautiful north shore of Rice Lake, only 90 minutes from Toronto.

Through five generations of family ownership, we’re proud to support our Kawarthas community with delicious food and drink, much of which is grown here, raised here, caught here or sourced nearby.

We offer incredible experiences including wine tasting in our underground wine cellar, skating on the lake, sleigh rides, and lots of cozy comfortable cottages to keep you warm all winter long.

What’s the BIGGEST thing here NOT sourced locally? Happy visitors like you!


Delicious & Home Grown
