Forest to Table: At Mount Julian, many ingredients come from the forest around us.

He's inspired by the season and trained by the best. Much like his two young boys, Chef Kevin McKenna likes digging in the dirt and eating what he finds.

Come explore 6 km of trails on 150 acres of private land. Disc golf, hiking, biking and off-leash dogs!

4 seasons to explore!

WORKING TO IMPROVE YOUR EXPERIENCE! In an effort to offer you even more fun during your stay with us, we're putting in an indoor pool and gym! This means we do have some construction noise during the day and a small area of the grounds next to the main building is not the prettiest backdrop for your vacation photos. The rest of the resort is fully operational and ready to entertain you.

A member of Ontario's Finest Hotels, Inns and Spas group, Viamede Resort is a historic, full-service resort and conference centre with 2,000 feet of magnificent Stoney Lake shoreline. Located in the beautiful Kawarthas Lakes Region, just a short drive from Peterborough and less than two hours from Toronto, this landmark Ontario resort boasts over 50 well-appointed guest rooms and pet-friendly lakeside cottages, three restaurants for casual and fine dining, full-service spa, convention facilities, wedding chapel, and marina.

Whether you are planning a family resort vacation, a romantic couple's getaway or an Ontario weekend escape, Viamede Resort has the perfect lakeside accommodations to suit your needs. Consider our Kawartha Lakes resort for your next group event, business meeting or conference. Tailoring fabulous custom resort weddings is our specialty.

Our extensive facilities are well suited for both relaxation and adventure. Explore our 165 acres of unspoiled wilderness. We have 6 km of private forest trails, indoor and outdoor pools, sand beach, landscaped gardens, a working farm, and petting zoo. Paddle the clean and clear waters of beautiful Stoney Lake, past the scenic islands and century cottages. Relax with spa treatments at the full-service spa, or join us at The Boathouse for live music, great food, cold craft beers and summertime fun. Viamede Resort's 3 restaurants offer a menu diversity that few resorts can match - a lakefront pub with homemade casual dining classics, an ever-changing variety of tantalizing entrees in the Dining Room, and Mount Julian, Viamede Resort's fine dining restaurant, featuring a cellar selection of 100 different wines and a 7-course gourmet tasting menu, all complemented by a burgeoning farm-to-table program.

A century-old traditional Ontario resort hotel, Viamede Resort, and adjoining Mount Julian Resort, have been Stoney Lake landmarks since 1885. Today, after extensive upgrades and renovations throughout the resort, Viamede Resort is once again one of the finest full-service hotel and conference centres in Ontario. Unlike other top Ontario resorts, Viamede has a very progressive pet policy that warmly welcomes well-behaved pets on vacation with their owners. In fact, our Kawartha resort might be the most pet-friendly resort in Canada. All of our lakeside cottages are pet friendly, and we do not charge extra fees for guests who wish to enjoy a week or weekend vacation on Stoney Lake accompanied by their four-legged friend. Here you will find facilities especially for dogs, like an onsite off-leash dog park and six-kilometres of designated off-leash trails, so every member of the family can have a fun on vacation.

Located only 40 minutes north of the city of Peterborough, Viamede is nestled in the woods on the north shore of Stoney Lake, one of Ontario's most beautiful lakes. During the spring, summer and fall, our resort marina is a popular destination for Stoney Lake boaters, and for boaters from connecting lakes and beyond. Stoney Lake is part of the Trent Severn Waterway which links Georgian Bay to Lake Ontario, so boaters from virtually anywhere in the world can stop by our Stoney Lake resort's docks. At Viamede, boaters can tie up for the night or for the day to enjoy a meal or have drinks in one of our great lakeside restaurants.

Boating, hiking, biking, Frisbee golf... be as active as you please during you stay with us at Viamede, but, when it comes time to wind-down, our pool, beach, hot tub, sauna, and lounge chairs are all well suited to a more relaxed pace. Many guests take full advantage of poolside smoothies & virgin daiquiris, and are perfectly content to let others do the hard work of playing volleyball, stand-up paddle boarding, waterskiing or tubing. Our activities are also very popular with conference delegates. Many groups corporate retreats and conferences include in their agendas free time to take advantage of all Viamede has to offer. Teambuilding activities are also very popular, as leaders come to better understand the need for working together.

Viamede Resort, the Grand Lady of the Kawarthas, is truly a one of a kind Ontario lakefront resort. We hope to see you soon at Viamede Resort.
