Where was Schitt’s Creek filmed?

Outdoor filming locations for Schitt’s Creek

The picturesque town of Orangeville

Was Schitt’s Creek filmed at a real motel?

Just outside Downtown Orangeville, you can find the motel used for outdoor filming for the Rosebud Motel. The motel is not an operating motel, but you can pull into the parking, get out, walk around, and take some fun pictures. 

What town was Schitt’s Creek filmed in? 

Goodwood: Main filming location for Schitt’s Creek

The small town of Goodwood served as the main filming location for Schitt’s Creek. Although the town is very tiny, at the main intersection you will find the storefronts that were transformed into Rose Apothecary, Bob’s Garage, and Cafe Tropical. When I was researching Schitt’s Creek filming locations there was mention of businesses being in both the cafe, and Rose Apothecary building. But, during our visit in April 2023, neither building was open for business. 

If you explore more around the town, then you may even find the mayor’s house, and town hall. We were short on time, so we drove around a little, and didn’t find either.

Schitt’s Creek filming locations for the ultimate fan

Some locations were short lived, and only used for an episode, or possibly only a couple episodes. But, if you are an ultimate fan of Schitt’s Creek, and want to visit all the filming locations as possible, we’ve got some extras for you. 

Applewood Farm

Located in Whitechurch Stouffville, Applewood Farm was the outdoor filming location for Moira’s winery, the Herb Etlinger Winery. They are open during apple picking season, so if you plan to see the farm, then be sure to take your trip in the fall.

Let’s not forget the sweet and sensitive Ted, love interest of Alexis during several seasons. Another filming location in Whitechurch Stouffville, and is currently home to Thicketwood Veterinary Hospital. 

Special filming locations for David and Patrick

Rattlesnake Point Conservation Area

Schitt’s Creek filming location for David & Patrick’s engagement

Let’s not forget the moment when David and Patrick got engaged on their adventurous hike. If you are planning to add Rattlesnake Point to your stops, then you want to be sure and make reservations. This park requires reservations, so you’ll want to plan in advance. The park is know for gorgeous sunsets, therefore making this your last stop could be the perfect end to your road trip.

Elora Mill Hotel & Spa

While Goodwood served as the main outdoor filming location for Schitt’s Creek, the iconic Rose Apothecary was actually filmed at the historic Elora Mill Hotel & Spa. The hotel’s stunning architecture and picturesque surroundings made it the perfect location for the upscale general store. Take a tour of the hotel and spa, and even book a stay in one of the luxurious rooms. Don’t forget to snap a photo in front of the Rose Apothecary sign and relive some of your favorite moments from the show.

Julie is owner and founder of How We Find Happy. As an optimist, the name is perfect as we share the ways we find happy living in Florida, visiting breweries, spending time with our adult children, and getting away on some couples trips. As previous residents of Michigan, we still spend lots of time each year visiting our family up there, along with new and favorite places. My hope is to encourage others to spend time exploring this beautiful world, and finding happy in unexpected places.
