Elora Experiences

We invite you to immerse in the Experience of Elora. Perched on the edge of a spectacular gorge and nestled along the banks of the Grand & Irvine Rivers, lies Ontario’s most beautiful village. Our enchanting village offers an array of unique activities that can be enjoyed in every season. Make the most of your visit with curated experiences that will make your stay one to remember.


This hidden room surrounded by limestone walls where wine is now aged and poured into glasses for eager guests, once was the power centre of the original mill. Beyond the west wall, closest to the rushing cascade, the churning of the wooden water wheel could be heard. The force of the Grand River drove the horizontal shaft that protruded through the wall and connected to a large wallower gear that in turn drove a vertical shaft up through the ceiling. Above, the clatter of the crown wheel could be heard with its attached belts and pulleys driving the huge saw blade and grinding millwheel. Gather and indulge in a delicious feast style meal surrounded by an abundance of wine, in a unique space that once was where the river powered through Elora’s first mill.
