Eats & Treats

  • If you want the best view in town, get a patio table at The Perch Restaurant and enjoy a great lunch, snack, or dinner while you’re there.
  • Fenelon Falls is a big little Butter Tart Tour destination with four tour bakeries! Visit their website to download the map & make your sweet tour plans. Here are the four stops in Fenelon Falls:

    1) A quick walk or bike from Lock 34 is Sweet Bottoms Coffee Shop. They have some of the best coffee around.

    2) Kawartha Shortbread is also here in Fenelon Falls, baker of the 1st place butter tart in the 2017 “Best of the Best” Taste-off!

    3) Little Pie Shack is cute, pink, and sweet – a must-see for any Butter Tart Tour aficionado!

    4) Last but not least, Eganridge Inn, Country Club, and Spa has it all, including butter tarts!


Savour the Seasons

  • The Fenelon Falls Fair is an annual event in early August. Check out this website for 2018 dates as they become available.

Fishing Tips from Local Pro Chris Huskilson

  • Lock 34 at Fenelon Falls connects Cameron Lake and Sturgeon Lake. Fishing is great all-year long. But for many species (Walleye, Perch, Bluegill, Crappie) fishing is most productive in spring, when the fish are fresh off the spawn and looking to feed. The biggest Muskies and Smallmouth Bass are typically caught in the fall.

  • The Fenelon Inn is right downtown, and Eganridge Inn, Country Club, and Spa is halfway between Fenelon Falls and Bobcaygeon. (Don’t forget that they are also a Butter Tart Tour stop!) There are some parks and cottages farther afield too.
