Food scene

This is a hip little hamlet about 20 minutes from the cottage, great for a half-day of shopping and lunch, or for a night out for dinner.

If you're staying for awhile, we recommend checking out Peterborough, they have great independent restaurants (lots of vegan options), check out the Farmer's market on Sundays, some of our favourites include Hot Belly Mamas, Ashburnham Ale House, St Veronus, and the Food Forest. There are also food tours (Kawarthas food tours) available that will take you through the city.

This trail is part of the Trans-Canada highway, you can hike or cycle the trail to Peterborough or to Hastings. To get to the trail, walk up the road to River road, turn right on to river road, and you'll get to the gravel trail. Left goes to Peterborough, right to Hastings. We love to take a lunch and make a day of it. The trip to Hastings has beautiful views of Rice Lake.

The cottage is located on the Ouse river which leads out to Rice Lake. You're on the north side of the lake, but there is plenty to see and do around the lake itself. At the end of the road if you keep driving past the cottage, you'll get to the lake. The best place to see the lake from land nearby is at 1100 Birdsall Lane (just one street over from the cottage). The best way to see the lake is of course by boat, but you can also make a day trip of taking a tour around the lake. https://ricelakecanada.com/ has more information on some stops along the way,

Neighbourhoods

Our area is rural, the closest town and grocery store are in Hastings, remember it's a small town so things close early! Pop into town for some groceries and make some time to grab an icecream and watch the boaters at the lock.
