Property Description

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 teams, business meetings and conferences, and we are always honoured when a bride and groom begin their married life with us!

Green Sustainability

We are the fifth generation of Elmhirst’s to operate the farm, and are thankful for what has been passed down to us. For the deep roots of tradition it has provided, and for the connection to place and community that has been entrusted to our care. Throughout the resort and farm we have implemented many initiatives to support the tenets of sustainability. Here are some of the highlights:EnergyA photo-voltaic solar panel system on the roof and tracking systems at the farm produce energy for the grid.All public spaces, shops, laundry, and the indoor and outdoor pools are heated with bio mass, which is the equivalent to heating twenty family bungalows.Energy-efficient lighting is used in all public spaces.Waste wood and culled trees are cut and provided to the cottages for use in the fireplaces.Water is heated in a more energy-efficient tankless system.A wood-pellet boiler heats the pools and main building.FoodThe Elmhirst’s Own branding on some foods means they are produced on the property.Heirloom varieties are frequently chosen.A tomato tunnel is used to extend the growing season and increase production for canning.Beehives produce antibiotic free honey for use in our kitchen and for sale in the gift shop.A herd of over fifty Angus cattle are maintained so most of the beef we serve is bred, born and finished right on the property without the use of hormones.Pekin ducks are raised in the pond for restaurant use.Turkeys are raised on the property for Thanksgiving and Christmas.Only Canadian wines are offered for sale in our restaurants.Gardens at each cottage contain herbs for guest’s use.EnvironmentNaturalized shoreline and waterfront trail to control erosion and provide wildlife habitatNon-invasive dockage system to prevent damage to the natural lake bottom and fish spawning areasCorn and Carp are used where aquatic weed control is requiredNo fertilizers or herbicides are used on the resort lawn.Livestock are fenced away from the lake and stream.Plantings at each cottage use only native plants to the area. Decorative and non-native species are used in the central garden only.Lake weeds are used to fertilize our vegetable gardens.Over 1,000 trees have been planted to control erosion, provide shade and wind breaks, and create wildlife habitats.We collect seeds from many plants in fall, and in the greenhouse we germinate and propagate annuals as well as some vegetables for planting the next spring.Vegetable waste and yard waste are composted for use in the gardens.Horse and cow manure is composted to humus before spreading on the land.A series of sewer mains and lift stations deliver all sewage to a disposal bed set well back from the lake.In our onsite sawmill and woodworking shop we produce building materials used on the property.Cardboard, plastic and metal are collected and recycled.The Spa uses only vegan products.Emphasis is placed on environmental-friendly sports (bicycles, canoes, kayaks, water bicycles, kite boarding, walking).CommunityWe have a policy of hiring local’s first.We source all food and other supplies from local producers.We partner with community groups like the Trans Canada Trail Association and the Canadian Canoe Museum.

"During my search for a hotel in Cape Cod, my hair started going grey very quickly. Each time I found a hotel, either the prices were through the roof or the hotel was a complete dump. I accidentally called you when I thought I was calling a hotel in the Cape Cod area. It was the best mistake I could have ever made! You took down all the details and specifications that I needed and THE VERY NEXT DAY I had a list of hotels that met my requirements." A.C. - Cape Cod, MA
