We have stayed here many times and have really enjoyed the ambiance and service. Top notch restaurant satisfied all of us. The cottages are well appointed and pleasure to stay in. Our kids enjoy the pool, playgrounds and trails.

The staff at the Elmhirst Resort were all exceptional. Starting with my call to book the weekend, all of the restaurant staff and everyone that we encountered. They went out of their way to assist us in any way that they could and make us feel welcome. The furniture in the cottage was a little "tired" but the beds were... More

Wanting to do something special for our 2-year anniversary, my girlfriend and I stumbled upon Elmhirst Resort, and read good things about. We decided to take a chance, and boy are we happy we did. The cabin was incredible. It was much larger than I expected, but also very homely and cottage-feeling, in all of the best ways. A wood-burning... More

I have been coming to this resort with my family and friends since I was a kid. There is a reason why I always come back and recommend to my friends! An absolute gem in the kawarthas, with rustic but modern(with free wifi) and roomy cottages only an hour and a half from the city! We had a wonderful new... More

The cottages are very nice. Food in the on-site pub was average at best. Bruscetta and small strip loin were disappointing. Never tried the main restaurant except for a group lunch the next day. Lunch was ok. Next time I'd take my own steaks and grill on the cottage deck using the provided bbq. Probably a very nice place but... More

We spent three relaxing days at Elmhirst's Resort to celebrate a November birthday. Our one bedroom cottage was clean, comfortable and fully equipped and we had a lovely view of the lake from our deck. Wifi in the cottage was excellent. The fireplace was a welcome feature during the chilly evenings. The grounds of the resort are very well-kept and... More

Staff did a great job of putting together a women's weekend that was a lot of fun. Large cottages facing the lake were perfect for friends getting together and would also be fantastic for families. 3 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms - large living room and kitchen with your own BBQ. The food was great and the spa facilities were very... More

What a fantastic weekend I've just had with my girlfriends! Elmhirst's Resort is such a phenomenal place. Excellent staff, accommodations, activities, etc. So beautiful. The (extremely clean) cottages are fitted with lovely, comfortable bedding. It was like sleeping while wrapped in a cloud. The food was top notch at both the pub and the restaurant.

I attended a wedding here recently. The grounds and buildings are nice and there are loads of activities on site (we didn't do any of that, just a wedding, but they obviously have plenty to do.) Staff was good. Dinner included pork, and beef ribs as well as a smoked brisket. The brisket was very good, but both types of... More
