Came here for a family wedding. Very cool to have the whole place to ourselves for a private event. The grounds are lovely. The restaurant servers were awesome, 2 young brothers worked the whole weekend and remembered most guests names. The food was ok, rooms in the main lodge are pretty basic, cosy. The cabins are huge, a little outdated... More

We were part of an overnight cruise to Sherwood Inn on the Muskoka Lake steamer. On the final leg of our cruise to Lake Joseph, Sherwood Inn staff came aboard to greet us, and give us our room assignment plus book our dinner reservations. We arrived at 6:00 sharp (as scheduled), and just as we docked the skies opened. We... More

We stayed here for 5 nights as part of a two week stay in Ontario, aiming to relax after a busy time in Toronto. We certainly managed that, staying in a lovely part of Muskoka. The hotel is perhaps 6 or 8 minutes drive from Port Carling and ideally suited to exploring Lakes Joseph, Rousseu and Muskoka. We couldn't fault... More

My adult daughter, myself and her small/medium sized dog stayed here for 2 nights in July 2014. The location was awesome, we walked the trail, swam in beautiful Lake Joseph, jumped off the raft and took our dog to an out of the way spot to swim to her heart's delight. The room was fabulous, the food was exceptional, the... More

My husband and I stayed here during the August 2014 long weekend, and we thought the Inn was beautiful. Overall, we would stay here again, but here are some thoughts: **ROOM** We stayed as part of the Inn rooms (not the cottages), and although the room was small, it was functional and was kept nicely. Rooms in the Inn can... More

We had seen the Sherwood Inn well revised and stopped by for lunch. We sat outside with a view of Lake Joseph and shared a charcuterie appetizer, followed by a shared fish and chips. Both were excellent and we were impressed with the generosity of the portion sizes. We lingered in the grounds and sat on Muskoka chairs by the... More

My friends and I stayed over for one night before participating in a triathlon in Bala. We were charged $394.37 for one night without breakfast. Realizing the cost I expected an exceptional Maplewood room and although it has been renovated the building is still very dated. The air condidioner is terribly noisy to the point where we turned it off.... More

We booked the inn for a peaceful break whilst in Canada and to celebrate my birthday. We had very little peace especially at night due to there being conferences at the hotel. We had a great room but it was above the lounge and over the entrance. The fire pit outside the entrance was supposed to finish by 11:30 pm... More

Dear John P, Thank you for your review following your stay with us in late June. I am sorry your stay was spoiled by rowdy conference groups and late night fire pit activity. In retrospect we should have re-located you to another part of the resort for some peace and quit that you were looking for in the first place.... More
