From small shops to micro-breweries, walking trails, riverside views, & delectable food, St. Jacobs has something for everyone! 

Check out some of our favourite things to do below.

St. Jacobs Farmer's Market - grab a 52 bike + basket, head to the world famous market, eat a fritter or six, and stock up on happy hour snacks.

Breweries and Biergardens - Block 3 is literally in our parking lot, make it easy to get home after a few refreshing brews. The village biergarten is also just down the street, serving up authentic kick ass tacos.

Village Shopping  - our favs are La Creme & Xclusive Elements. 

Grand River Trails - backyard access from Hotel 52 with views you'll fall in love with!

Antique Hunting - we have found some GEMS for this hotel doing this at the many unique antique shops in and around St. Jacobs.

Riverside Picnics - you can hire these awesome companies to set up a ridiculous elaborate picnics for you and your best gals, like @theelorapicnicco

Canoeing The Grand - an awesome shuttle drops you at a start point and picks you up (hell no to the portage - unless you want to). You can pack a picnic, too! (or we can for you. . .) For more info, visit

Sugar Bush Tours - Get ready for an afternoon sleigh ride & maple syrup tasting (weather permitting, of course). Have your thermos of hot apple cider ready (don't worry, we can spike it)! For more info, visit

Conestoga River Horseback Riding Adventures - either hilarious or romantic, whatever suits you... 

One Axe Pursuits - it's a 15 min drive to Elora but makes the perfect day trip! Lunch in Elora followed by a zip line through the Gorge. The Friendly Society has the best weekend brunch! For more info, visit

Local Festivals - from Sparkles on our main street to the Maple Syrup Festival in Elmira and Riverfest in Elora, there's something to discover all year long!

Crows Foot Smoke House - Steph swears by the brisket and tater tots, so make sure to reserve in advance!
