Fall Romance Route

Day 1 - Cozy Cottage on the Lake

To begin your itinerary, check in to Elmhirst Resort on Rice Lake.

 We suggest the Deluxe One Bedroom Cottage for your romantic stay at Elmhirst. This “Honeymoon Suite” features a king-size bed with a view to the gas fireplace, large washroom with soaker tub and shower. It has a private dock, a lakefront deck, and a BBQ.

Spend the afternoon enjoying the many activities the resort offers or just sit back and relax in your cabin in front of the fire. 

For dinner, enjoy a meal at Elmhirst’s Hearthside Dining Room.

Day 2 - Elmhirst to St. Anne's

Drive south from Elmhirst to St. Anne’s Spa in Grafton. This stunning spa that looks like an English manor will help you relax, unwind and de-stress. It’s the perfect recipe for romance. 

For dinner, experience a private 4-course dinner prepared by your very own Ste. Anne’s chef in the privacy of a spa cottage.

You can even pre-order gifts and special treats in the room to surprise your beloved.

Day 3 - Drive Home or Extend Your Stay

If your getaway is brief, this will be your day to drive home. 

However, extending your time in Northumberland County is definitely recommended—walk hand in hand on Cobourg Beach while the sun sets, stroll through the shops and cafes in Port Hope, or arrange a romantic fall photography session with a local photographer.
