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.
Wildwood Cottages is located in a sheltered bay on Rice Lake, just 4 km from the gallery. They also offer boat rentals.
