Elmhirst’s Resort is a cottage resort, conference facility and spa with world class dining and activities for the whole family in all 4 seasons. Our collection of cottages is nestled on the breathtaking shoreline of Rice Lake and an array of outdoor adventures await. Our family offers yours the very best of the Kawarthas — much of it on our very 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. Our 240-acre property, passed along from one generation to the next, is cornerstone of the Elmhirst Resort experience. We’re committed to preserving that property for the future — for our family and for yours.
The Scottish Highland series now on display at the Gallery at Elmhirst’s, is comprised of four photographs by local Photographer, E. Paul Macklin. Each depict a different scene of northwest Scotland. The images were captured while on a motor tour of the north of Scotland in the fall of 2016. Each photo has been printed on archival photo paper, displayed in a deep frame under “museum” non glare glass.

Our vegetable garden is soaking up the sprinkle of rain today. A recent harvest included crisp lettuces, zucchini and beans of yellow and green, snow peas and jalapeño peppers. Saucer-like Patty Pan summer squash, aromatic fennel, sage & basil, and Swiss chard round out the haul all destined for our pub and fine dining. The tomato tunnel used to extend the growing season and increase production for canning, is once again full of various varieties of tomato plants. Tours are a popular weekly activity on the recreation schedule for guests seeking an up close garden chat with Gardener, Jim Maker. #FeastON #ElmhirstsOwn CTA: Culinary Tourism Alliance
