Attractions in the heart of the Kawarthas

The Inn is in the heart of the Kawartha Lakes district, an area famous for its dramatic and varied landscape. About half an hour north of Peterborough, the largest city in the region, the Inn enjoys a wonderfully scenic location on Stoney Lake and its 1100 islands. A short drive to the north bring you to Petroglyphs Provincial Park which has the largest known concentration of aboriginal rock carvings in Canada. Carved into the white marble rock face hundreds of years ago, the 900 petroglyphs depict turtles, snakes, birds, humans and other images. You can hike on the trails meandering through surrounding forests, wetlands and rocky ridges or visit The Learning Place interpretive centre.

Curve Lake First Nation has one of the finest galleries of Native art in the country with knowledgeable staff to help you discover the Ojibway history of the area. The pretty town of Lakefield has a number points of interest and stores but make sure you watch boats locking through on the Trent-Severn Waterway.

Peterborough, a city of about 75,000 has the amenities you would expect of a city of this size - restaurants, cinemas, a zoo, parks and theatres, however, the Canadian Canoe Museum and the Liftlocks are two attractions that should be on your 'must see' list. South of the Inn is Lang Pioneer Village which is a living exhibition showing what pioneer life was like in the area. Near the town of Millbrook is 4th Line Theatre, a nationally recognized theatre company that specializes in plays about the area. Plays are held outside to give a realistic and unique theatre
