Will be going back! Front of house staff so helpful and genuine. Even at 3am, I couldn't sleep (drank a coffee late at night) and the gentleman helped me with all I needed. Food was great, I highly recommend their veggie burger! I am vegan and really appreciate their vegan options also. I had their vegan curry to start and a coconut date squares for dessert. The waiter informed me the bread they served as a starter had egg and having a waiter understand my choices I am truly greatful! I have had my share of waiters hate my lifestyle choice and it shows. Love the fire out the front a great chance to stay warm! Great coffee in the rooms. I messed up and didn't book a room with a fridge, since I don't consume milk I bring my own almond milk. They were very willing to store my milk so I could have a good cup of coffee the next morning with my almond milk. Dog friendly! I loved seeing all the dogs walking around and enjoying their vacation with their humans.

Sherwood Inn hosted our elopement wedding in October. It was beautiful! We stayed in the Boat House for 2 nights and could not have asked for a better experience. Christina Van Kempen and team took care of all the little details to make our stay and our ceremony absolutely perfect. They arranged weather contingency plans, helped us organize our day and ensured no aspect was overlooked. All the staff were extremely helpful in assisting us for the 2 days we spent at Sherwood. In addition to the perfect location, the food was AMAZING! We will definitely be going back to Sherwood Inn for future events.

My husband and I started coming to the Sherwood Inn three years ago for a little getaway after our wedding. We had such a lovely time that we have been back each year since. This year we had the pleasure of coming with our baby girl, my husbands parents and his sister and her family. We had, yet again, an amazing, relaxing and fun time together. Whether it’s warm or cool weather, you’ll find yourself leaving relaxed and happy. An added touch this year was that we accidentally left our daughter’s very special stuffed bunny in the room. We did not realize until we arrived home (3 hours away). I called the Sherwood and requested that if they should find it would they please mail it back to us. Promptly and without hesitation they tracked down our bunny and mailed it To us within the week. We appreciated that so much! Thanks again and see you next year ❤️

Beautiful location in busy Muskoka but a tired place with carpet stains, wall chips and paint scuffing. The resto is amazing with consistently great food-except breakfast. We stayed in one of the main lodges so don’t know about the smaller cottages which are mostly lakeside. The spa is also tired with a broken main water feature but the massages and treatments are excellent. It is apparently a golf destination and, being a non-golfer, cannot comment on that either.

Dear travelguy002, Thank you for the gift of feedback. So glad you enjoyed our dining room, outside of breakfast which is normally a highlight for many guests. Not to worry there is a plan in place to catch those carpet stains, wall chips and pain scuffing...it's just a little harder to keep up to them in our prime season. Also happy to hear you enjoyed your experience in the spa. We will look into that broken main water feature you mention. Hope to see you back here again soon! Sincerely yours, Jody

I photographed a wedding at the Sherwood Inn this past weekend and I just wanted to say what a joy and honour it was to be here! Christina is very accommodating and resourceful. The grounds are beautiful and the Inn is located in a serene setting on Lake Joseph. The food is also very delicious! If you're looking for the perfect venue where your guests can stay overnight or for the whole weekend, and you want an intimate setting for your elegant/timeless/rustic wedding, I HIGHLY recommend the Sherwood Inn!! - Michaila Chodur Photography
