The 'Rare Escape' began as a light hearted outdoor solution to taking care of our mental health while dealing with the stress of owning and operating a restaurant during the pandemic. It went from an occasional weekend retreat to an irresistible life calling that we simply could not ignore. We developed a business plan that fused our love for the culinary arts and the great outdoors together. Not long after we decided to sell our beloved restaurant 'Rare' in the city. It hasn't been an easy path, but it's been an authentic one, and we can't wait to share our story with you on one of our outdoor culinary experiences in The Kawarthas!
