Did you know there are wineries in Kawarthas Northumberland? We recommend Rolling Grape Vineyards. In the summer months, they sling a mean pizza on their sunny patio which pairs perfectly with their orange wine! Fancy a little fine dining with your vino? Check out Gusto Grande for a delightful menu of Italian cuisine and wine.

The very best butter tart in the region is at Doo Doo’s Bakery in Baillieboro – and that’s not just us saying so! Diane and her team have won dozens of awards at Taste-Offs, Fairs and other competitions.

Fancy a craft brew? Grab a pint at Old Dog Brewery in Bobcaygeon for beers that are not only K9-inspired but downright clever (we love Wheaten Kings).

For family friendly accommodations with a side of delicious food – like their Angus Beef Burger – plan to stay at Elmhirst Resort.

A meal with a view awaits you of The Dockside Bistro in Campbellford where you can munch away as you look over the Trent-Severen Waterway.
