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.

Note: Many of these activities may require advance booking. Hours of operation, open season and availability must be inquired with each business directly.

Cultivation Sessions

Consider a weekday escape where you can engage in our memory-making cultivation series that ensures your time with us is as fulfilling as it can be.

We invite you to share in a behind-the-scenes experience with our talented team, creative partners, and community.

Embrace exploration, enhance your well-being, sip refined flavours, experience the finest local cuisine, challenge your palate, or channel your creative energy.

Cultivation Sessions are complimentary for guests of the hotel. A limited number of these sessions are available for day guests (see Day Guest Calendar for details). To register, email our team at info@eloramill.ca


Kitchen Counter

The Kitchen Counter is a fun and new modern-style tasting menu that will leave you no choice but to be fully immersed in the Elora Mill kitchen experience.

Get to know our chefs and our team as you enjoy a menu that is focused on the best ingredients our farm and local specialty producers have to offer.

Be the first to have sneak peeks at new items, taste dishes that are Chef’s own favourites. You may even learn one or two new cooking techniques!

Sommelier cocktail and wine pairings are always an option.
