Relax & Rejuvenate at Rising Spirit

A cheery welcome to the home of the Rising Spirit Bed & Breakfast Wellness Retreat!  Nestled along the Ganaraska River on 5-private acres of the Oak Ridges Moraine, we will create the experience you want and need.  Whether it’s quiet solitude, therapeutic healing and yoga, connecting with community or having fun, you will find it with us.

A short while ago, I decided ‘to pack it in’ and move out of the city.  I came to a little rental cottage in Kendal.   Within days of arrival, I went for a walk and came upon this tranquil haven and immediately knew I belonged here.  My family and I want to share this special oasis with you.

Not only will you sleep peacefully in your cozy guest room and be nourished by a sumptuous home-made buffet breakfast, but our location offers the opportunity to slow down and breathe in renewal and joy.

We’re only an hour from Toronto, less than 30 minutes from Kawartha Lakes (Lindsay & Peterborough) and Port Hope, and minutes from Durham Region, Rice Lake and Lake Ontario at the Port of Newcastle. Our municipality of Clarington, within the picturesque rolling hills of Northumberland County, offers many charms, historic sites and sporting attractions so you can create a vacation combining urban stimulation, rural magic and therapeutic tranquility.

We look forward to serving you.

“This is such a beautiful and peaceful property. The ponds and trees surrounding the area are absolutely gorgeous and there is so much to take in. The most relaxing part of my experience was the captivating sounds and sights of the Ganaraska river.”

“This place is absolutely stunning. Two rivers run throughout the property and the sound of the waterfalls is so peaceful. There are nearby trails and we spent a morning doing TreeTop Trekking which was a quick drive away. The host is lovely, and my family will definitely be returning this winter as it is close […]
