The whole region is a popular destination for visitors and there is every type of accommodation, from luxury boutique B&B’s in unspoiled rural settings, to popular chain motels and hotels in nearby Peterborough. Rice Lake is 32 km long and you can camp, rent a cottage or stay at a family resort on both the north and south sides of this famous fishing lake.

There is so much to see and do within a 30 minute drive of the Gallery you are spoiled for choice.
The Rice Lake Gallery is located overlooking Rice Lake from the north, in Peterborough County, but very close to the border of Northumberland County. Please visit the official websites for Peterborough and the Kawarthas and Northumberland County for more information about places to stay, play and dine.



Idyllic, rural, and quintessentially Canadian, each year the 4th Line Theatre Company presents Canadian plays – written by and about Canadians; small town stories or broad national sagas that touch a nerve in all of us. Only 16 km from the Rice lake Gallery.
