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

Before explaining why we felt disappointed by our experience, I'd like to balance it with the positives. The location is idyllic, the cleanliness and comfort of the hotel is excellent and the opportunity to take out kayaks and stand up boards onto the lake for free was greatly appreciated. However, we were really disappointed with how the majority of the... More

Dear NCMC2015 Needless to say I was very disenchanted and disappointed in reading your review following your stay. At first I thought that this must be a mistake and that you have written a review about the wrong hotel. We also cannot find anything in our systems that matches your profile or the location of a room where you would... More

This resort is extremely friendly and accomodating. Close to the water. Great view of the lake from our Maplewood balcony. Facilities are clean and neat, with excellent room amenities. Easy parking. No surprise charges. My wife and I are enjoying the serenity and calm atmosphere. The staff here are as friendly as they come! Great place for couples and families.... More

My husband and I had been referred to the Muskoka area for beautiful golf courses. Came upon this small Inn (49 rooms and a few cottages) thru TA reviews. As Texans we were mostly excited about the cool Canadian weather but this place was an added bonus each day after golf. We played shuffleboard, hiked a trail just a short... More

We have vacationed in Muskoka for decades and have stayed at virtually every resort on the Muskoka lakes. The Sherwood Inn is the perfect place to stay if you are looking for a classic, quiet Muskoka experience. The spacious rooms have been beautifully updated; granite in the bathrooms and comfy beds. We enjoyed the beach which is located in a... More
