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

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.
