Cottage Resort, Spa & Conference Facility on Rice Lake

The Elmhirst family offers their guests an authentic escape from the everyday with an Ontario cottage resort retreat on the beautiful shores of Rice Lake, 20 minutes from Peterborough and just 90 minutes east of Toronto. The Elmhirst Resort experience is deeply rooted in family tradition, down-to-earth, and inspired by its surroundings. It’s approachable; and here, you’ll receive the warmest of welcomes.

Our collection of cottages is nestled on the breathtaking shoreline of Rice Lake, Ontario and an array of outdoor adventures await. Our family offers yours the very best of the Kawarthas — much of it on our own property. In fact, we raise our own beef, and grow much of what we serve in our lakefront dining room, bringing new meaning to Farm to Table.

We pride ourselves on our hospitality and welcome you the same way generations before us did — with warmth, commitment and dedication to making your stay in our cottages a beloved tradition for years to come.

Elmhirst’s Resort has also become an Ontario cottage destination of choice for groups, sports teamsbusiness meetings and conferences, and we are always honoured when a bride and groom begin their married life with us!
