We booked a two night Travelzoo deal for our anniversary at the beginning of August. When we called to book we were told we were sold out for the night of our anniversary but then we were offered an upgrade at $30 per night - which turned out to be a great deal. We were not in the inn itself... More

We stayed for a few days August 10-12 and loved it. It is an older resort but nicely renovated. We bought a voucher through Travelzoo and had a premium inn room. It was very lovely with a lake view and very well layed out with lots of room. Breakfast buffet was included and was amazing. There was so much to... More

My guy took me here for my first Muskokan experience. Our criteria was fast integration/landing into our vacation on the Friday of a long weekend - not an easy expectation, good (pref great) food and wine on site, quiet solitude when required, and yet full resort-like amenities. The Sherwood Inn delivered on all of these wishes, plus made really good... More

Stopped in for a night on our way home from way up north. We had a room in the Maplewood building. On the positive side, the king bed was lovely as were the pillows. So was the spacious balcony and the view. The room was well lit. There were a couple of easy chairs and a good reading light. However,... More

I will start off by saying that I usually only have 1 hotel of preference when going to muskoka, and its usually because that is my reason for going. But now I have a second reason!!! I bought the "Travelzoo" vouncher to stay here for the night because we needed to attend an event in Muskoka. Considering all the reviews... More

Upon arrival we were informed we had been up graded from the Premium Cedarwood Room we had booked to Birchwood Cottage East room 303.

We're just back from three magnificent nights at the Sherwood Inn. The air is filled with pine from the numerous white pines that dot the property along Lake Joseph. Needless to say we had our windows open the whole trip. The hospitality was first class and our room was spotless. We can't wait to go back.

An affordable great getaway to a beautiful rustic Muskoka inn facilitated by a very competitive Expedia deal. Fabulous food worthy of any 5 star big city restaurant in a setting that is simply awesome. Friendly staff who made us feel at home and welcome.

Just here for one night and overall enjoyed the experience very much. Our room was spacious with a wonderfully comfortable bed and it was mostly quiet except for the morning stirrings of the guests on the floor above. Given that it is a country-style wood frame construction though, it wasn't unexpected. Set right on the lake, the grounds were lovely... More
