My husband and I got married at the Sherwood Inn in June this year. Everything blew us away from the hospitality to the food. No detail was overlooked. And it wasn't only us that were treated this way all of my 100 guests raved about the service, food and facilities all weekend. If anyone out there is looking for a place to have a romantic weekend away or a large event or even a weekend away with you family, this quaint resort in the heart of Muskoka has it all!! There's a beach for the little ones and kyaks and canoes for the older kids, the food is amazing and the spa service was top notch! I wish the Sherwood many long years of making their guests feel like kings and queens for a day (or weekend) and to many many more amazing reviews :) OH did I mention the BEDS WERE SO COMFORTABLE!!!!!!!!

Stopped on way from Sudbury to Toronto, never seeing the place. Nice May evening and we thought we would check it out. A nice surprise. A wood smoke fire in the front of the main building greeted us and a very friendly front desk staff helped us decide if we wanted to stay. She showed us 4 rooms. we went with the large cottage overlooking the lake. fireplace, big living room. nice little beach and sunset was amazing. We had our 3 year old and he liked the fire outside and the pine cones. Staff were fantastic, and genuinely engaging and we felt at home for sure. we wish we had found a place like this for our honeymoon.

My Husband and I were married here in February of 2008. I cannot stress enough the phenomenal customer service and experince not only us, but our 100 guests had. Cars were brushed off the morning after the wedding, the Manager was outside shovelling snow every two hours, the staff were ALWAYS on hand for ANYTHING and the food...to die for. All 100 of our guests said they didn't expect the service they received, Many of our guests wrote to Delta to RAVE about the cleanliness, attention to detail, service and "feel" that they had throughout the whole weekend.
Since then, my Husband and I have celebrated our anniversary there every year (with the exception of last...they had some reno's on the go), and each time, we're reminded of why we love it there!
We've stayed at many of "Ontario's Finest Inn's" and there is still no comparison to our stays and experiences with the Delta Sherwood.
Kudos to everyone on staff that makes this place a destination we always look forward to coming back to throughout the year!!

Our recent stay at the Delta Sherwood was disappointing. Out cottage was falling apart, the floor was heaved up, and some of the wallpaper was held in place with staples. For the money ($300+/night), it wasn't worth it....at 50% off, I would still have to pass.

Disappointed!

Our son and daughter bought a small weekend package for my wife and I to celebrate. We were not disappointed. The dining room provided superb service, as did one of the ground's keeper and the front desk when we presented a couple of small, rather insigificant, problems. the problems were dealt with swiftly and it seemed the staff could not do enough to please their guests. The food in the dining room? OMG it was good, you have got to try their new French Toast for breakfast.

The room, not really state of the art, but clean and quiet.
I also rate a place or product by asking the one simple question: Would I go back again? Yes, in a heart beat. This all depends how fussy or finiky some people are and there are those that complain no matter what. For our 40th Anniversary, it was perfect.

Our hats go to Catharine & Gabriel who served our meals and both a pleasure to talk to. These two young people were going through their internship in Hotel Management. Looks like our future is in good hands

My husband and I wanted to find a nice Muskoka place for our 25th anniversary and this was exactly what we wanted. The room was clean and updated, all the staff were very friendly and the food was pricey but fantastic. The beach was great and relaxing. We stayed for 3 nights and were very happy. One of the nice touches is the large number of places to sit with your spouse overlooking the lake. It is a great place to relax. This is definitely a couples place, nice and quiet, though a few people did bring their teenage children. We treated ourselves and were very happy with our choice. Heartily recommended.

Our room in the Cedarwood building was spacious and the bed was comfortable although the shower and bathtub taps leaked and dripped constantly. Stand up shower floor wasn't the cleanest - would have to wear flip flops and not bare feet. Everything has changed here since our last stay 5 years ago. The lovely large dining room is no longer used and occupied by tables for 8. (not with tables for 2 so that breakfast and dinner could be enjoyed while taking in the beautiful view of the lake and trees) Now, the smaller dining room beside the kitchen is only used and meals are offered on the deck as well, which means with the 2 outside doors being used to go in and out, there's no perfect table (a doorway in all 4 corners of this room) or view from this room. A dress code used to be in effect - jackets and ties at dinner and business casual at breakfast. Now, you can come right in out of the water to eat and flip flops are acceptable. We might as well have been eating at MacDonald's. A boat cruise was offered in the past for a minimal fee, which we were looking forward to but disappointed to find out that there was no one on staff who could operate the boat, which was in the boathouse. Very disappointed and are sorry we went back.
