My wife and I went up to Sherwood Inn for a quick two night stay to celebrate our 20th Anniversary. Not really knowing what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised - the property is quite small, much smaller than a typical resort. The real estate they have here is very nice and well layed out. As mentioned in the previous... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW

Had a fabulous buffet breakfast on the terrace and because it's geared to adults we could relax without the hustle and bustle of children nearby...we appreciated that, as this is what we were looking for in this vacation. Staff are wonderful We went to neighbouring... More

Sherwood Inn is one of Ontario's true gems! The staff are genuinely enthusiastic and very kind. We will definitely be returning. The food is amazing and we met the chef whom is very engaging. We had a lake view room with an amazing bed! The room and bathroom were tastefully decorated and had nice linens and sundries. There are ample... More

My husband and I just returned from a 3-night stay at the Sherwood Inn. We stayed in the Robinwood Cottage, their 1-bedroom cottage with its own deck and private dock. We paid a premium rate for this cottage, but in the end, it did offer us a small taste of what it would be like to own a lakefront cottage!... More

Loved the Sherwood. We were relaxed and enjoyed the food, sunset and canoe. I would go there if you have a chance. We enjoyed the service during dinner as well as checking in. Upon arrival we were given a different room. They quickly accommodated us.

What stood out most was the customer service attitude of the staff. The setting was quiet and serene. The beach was not big, but was clean, with chairs and towels provided. The water was not deep. The room was an ok size, though the washroom could have been smaller and more space allotted to the room. My sleep quality rating... More

Good location on Lake Joseph, and short drive to Port Carling. Very pleasant staff. Stayed in the Maplewood building, a two minute walk from the main building. Good size guest room. Wood constructed building, so you'll hear footsteps of guests on higher floors. Sad bed pillows and sagging beds. Loud window air conditioner. Only a two star experience, but raised... More

Dear Margot B, We appreciate your feedback. This is how we improve. I'm surprised by the sad pillows and sagging bed comment as we actually receive many raving reviews about our comfy beds and pillows. So much so, that they ask where we purchase so they can purchase. We have a supply of extra pillows just for that reason. However,... More

We visited Sherwood Inn on August 5, 2016 for our anniversary. This was a free night of accommodation and dinner because of such bad service last year in the restaurant on the night of what was supposed to be a perfect birthday celebration.

The Sherwood is a tremendous place that reflects a true "Muskoka character" lodge. Lovely location and ambience. The service was good and friendly. The place needs some investment in furnishing and infrastructure. Furniture in the dining hall and common areas needs updating. Also the infrastructure from parking to check-in is not the most user friendly.

Dear P P, We greatly appreciate your feedback. As you can imagine, the upkeep on a 1939 Inn is daunting and we continually look for ways to improve so your feedback helps us. We pride ourselves on being "authentic" Muskoka and are lucky to be surrounded by our beautiful setting. Our staff truly do make the difference in our guests... More
