Dive into a Local’s Signature Experience

Elmhirst’s Resort is closed for short term leisure rentals. Should longer stays for isolation or quarantine be required, our cottages will be prepared to the highest standards for your comfort and safety. Visit our Quarantine Package here.

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!


This is COOL! Here’s a chance to build your own at home concert experience! 🌷 🎶 #ArtKN #supportlocalartists #musiclovers #digitalconcertseries Posted @withregram • @perfectwknds "I hear air in the violins and feel the resonance of the cello. Though I can’t be physically present in The Barn, the lofty ceiling and rough-hewn timbers still convey a powerful sense of mood. For the next twenty-five minutes, I’m under the spell."⁣⁣
If you're missing the magic of live music on a Saturday night, @westben's Digital Concert at the Barn series is the perfect Covid-era solution. For a first-person take on this online concert experience, read our latest blog (🔗 in bio):⁣⁣

Looks rather frightening to ride, doesn't it? The bicycle has certainly come a long way from the rudimentary scooter like vehicles to the the modern two-wheelers we are used to.
