A cheery welcome to the home of the Rising Spirit Bed, Breakfast & Beyond where life is an adventure in wellbeing!

Nestled along the Ganaraska River on 5-private acres of the Oak Ridges Moraine, we will create the experience you want and need at our truly unique oasis. Whether it’s quiet solitude, therapeutic healing and yoga, connecting with community or having a whole lot of fun, you will find it here.

Not only will you sleep peacefully in your cozy room and be nourished by a sumptuous 2 course home-made breakfast, but our location offers the best of all worlds – soothing tranquility and enjoyable attractions within minutes of our Northumberland County location including tree top trekking, antiquing, lavender fields, outdoor paintball, Brimacombe Skiing & Kid camps, 4th Line Theatre, Motorsport Park, boutique rural stores and restaurants, Golf, the Ganaraska Forest & kilometres of Crown Land parks. Check out ‘local attractions’ tab on the menu.

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. So close, yet a world away.

“What you’ve created here is truly something special.  The minute you enter the property, the energy feels welcoming, warm & like you’re coming home.  I came to find some quiet time for myself and what I got was so much more.  The hospitality, incredible breakfast and amazing hosts were such a treat.  I am leaving […]


“Surrounded by this beautiful country spot, spring flowers and comforting home base, I put my struggles to rest for a night that was full of peace and pleasant memories.  So great to be hosted by you and Chris.”

“Our family of four had a wonderful stay.  This retreat was a perfect, relaxing ending to a busy race day at Mosport and the home-cooked breakfast was a delicious start every morning.  Would definitely give this stay 5 stars”
