Butter Tart Celebration - Weekend Food & Yoga Retreat at the Beach

Friday, June 9 – Sunday, June 11, 2017

Do you love butter tarts and everything butter related?

With a name like Sugar Ridge you know we understand the sweet stuff.  Our centre is named after the beautiful maple forest which covers the ridge we are located on.  We love maple syrup and that’s what makes our butter tarts so special.  That, and they’re gluten free too!

Midland is home to the best butter tart festival in Ontario!

This weekend is all about food and celebrating the start of summer.  What better place to do that than on the beach of Georgian Bay?  Enjoy gourmet vegan meals in between yoga and meditation classes, hikes and afternoon naps to the sounds of Georgian Bay at your doorstep.  We’ll explore the local town of Midland on Saturday for the festival but we’ve got to go early to get a good sample of tarts.

Space is limited to 10 people so book early!

Everything this weekend is optional so you can participate in whatever makes your heart sing and skip the rest.

Whether you seek a much needed R&R break, a getaway from kids and family, romance, or a deeper spiritual connection, we will cater to your needs to make your visit a memorable experience.
