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

Not only will you sleep peacefully in your cozy guest room and be nourished by a sumptuous 2 course home-made breakfast, but our location offers the best of all worlds – therapeutic tranquility, rural and urban outdoor adventures within minutes of our Northumberland County location including tree top trekking, antiquing, lavender fields, outdoor paintball, Brimacombe Skiing & Kid camps, Mosport, Golf, Ganaraska Forest & kilometres of Crown Land parks…and so much more. Check out local attractions tab under B & B 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.

I look forward to meeting you,

“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 […]
