Dive into a Local’s Signature Experience

Elmhirst’s Resort is open!

You can read more about our procedures and available amenities 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!


#ElmhirstMarry Posted @withregram • @thesweetbeefloral The utter excitement of receiving a sneak peek from your sweet client 🍂🤎 It was an absolute joy to flower for these two! Not only are they the most beautiful people (both inside and out) but they are also surrounded by the loveliest, sweetest friends and family. They had the most incredible vision and style (that colour palette though?! 🙌🏻) for their day and it was stunning! Sending so much love and a lifetime of happiness your way, B and D 🤍 📸 @brooklin_photography
Enjoy some guilt free fun!
