Harmony Dawn (Ontario) Retreat is located 25 minutes north of Cobourg and situated on the shores of beautiful Rice Lake in Northumberland County. They are approximately 1 ½ hours from Toronto in good traffic.
The centre is easily accessible from Hwy 401 east of Toronto.
• Take 401 east from Toronto and exit at Cobourg (Exit 474 B, about 1 hr from Toronto), taking County Rd 45 north, sign posted to Norwood. Go thru Baltimore, Fenella and Roseneath. Roseneath is about 20 mins from 401.
• Continuing on the 45 after Roseneath, turn off the 45 left (west) on Baxter Rd, 5.6km after Roseneath. Baxter Rd is about 1 km after Drope Rd or 1/2 km after the conical, green salt storage building on the right (east) side of the road, just before the sign that reads, “Baxter Road and Sandy Bay Cottages”.
• Travel 2.4 km along Baxter Rd to the first intersection, which is at the bottom of a steep hill. Continue straight thru the intersection for 1.3 km to Harmony Dawn, which is #800 Baxter Road. There is a blue “800” sign on the left side of the road at the entrance to the retreat. If you find yourself suddenly on a paved road going
down a sharp hill which turns left, you have gone too far.
• Drive over the flat meadow and culvert up the hill to the building for drop off purposes but please park your car in the parking lot just before the culvert. NB: In driving up the hill to the house, you need to accelerate a bit, not slow down, especially in slippery conditions.
Please follow these directions or google map above. We do not recommend using your GPS system as people routinely get lost that way.
