Sugar Ridge Retreat Centre, Ontario

Located on 150 acres of rolling meadows and majestic forests, Sugar Ridge is a peaceful place to retreat from busyness of daily life.  You can create your own private retreat or join a group retreat one that is scheduled.  Be in silence or talk as much as you want; sit in the forest or by the fire.

We host groups, so if you're a teacher and want to bring your students give us a call.  You can also create an outstanding family reunion, girls weekend, or a special intimate celebration.  Our centre is casual and warm, inviting you to make yourself at home during your stay.

The vegetarian cuisine is yummy, organic, and made from whole foods with lots of love.  Accommodation is provided in 10 private cabins with total capacity of 40 people.  Plan your stay and visit for more info.

Just 90 minutes from Toronto and close to Midland and Penetanguishene, the centre is a perfect place to stay and take in the historical landmarks of Saint Marie among the Huron, Martyr's Shrine and the Naval Establishments.

Liz Frost

I have been the driving force behind the development of Sugar Ridge Retreat Centre. After attending my first retreat many years ago I began to dream of a space in the woods to share the experience with others. I'm a rather stubborn individual and was very determined to make this dream a reality despite the incredible number of roadblocks along the way.

I worked as a Chartered Accountant in Toronto in what I think of as my `other life'. I became vegetarian at age 25, started meditating and studying holistic health and nutrition for fun, and left the corporate world at age 30, in what I now call my 'early mid-life crisis'. I didn't know what I wanted to do, I just knew I wasn't meant to sit in an office. I travelled, backpack style, for a couple years before returning to school. Completing an M.A. Ed. through Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax, that new career has resulted in being a psychotherapist. I bring an eclectic mix of training in many different models of therapy which results in therapy being tailored to one's needs. I am also a certified yoga teacher. I teach yoga as a form of meditation and incorporate mindfulness into daily activities. I literally stop and smell the roses in the garden. I continue to study, believing that one's education never really ends. My favourite teacher right now is my son Ben who has intuititively started worshipping Buddha in what he calls "The gods garden" (as opposed to the medicine wheel garden which he calls "The earth's garden" which is apparently" more important because we have to take care of the earth now"). I love the work I do and feel blessed to have such incredible teachers constantly coming here to share my vision.

I also feel blessed to call Sugar Ridge home. It truly is paradise. I live here with my husband Kurt, and son, Ben. I wake to the sound of birds at dawn, appreciate the view which changes every moment. The joy of my life is to play with Ben and go on 'expeditions' of the property. The property is so big we haven't even seen it all yet. If you're interested we can show you where the fairies live and of course our secret land of Rabbit and Toad. I am passionate about the organic gardens of Sugar Ridge and love to get dirty. I feel more at home in the forest than in the house and I'm not scared of the dark. Midnight walks with coyotes howling is heaven to me.

The first time I walked through the cedar forest here, I felt like I was home. I knew this was the place I'd been dreaming of.
