Spent two nights at Sherwood Inn (Mar 15, 16) after getting an email advertising a sale which was $170 for the two nights. This is a quaint almost cottagey kind of place however the room we were in (534) was very nice and seemed to have been recently renovated. Good beds, nice

First time staying here and loving it! Fireplace is perfect ambiance on a cold winter day in Muskoka. Cabin is rustically decorated, with king bed. Snowshoeing, cross country skiing, fat bikes, etc. Beautiful view of Lake Joseph!

Our stay at the Sherwood Inn was a wonderful experience. We had an opportunity to tour the area and go into the town of Port Carling as well. The area is quite beautiful and we definitely want to come back in the summer. Lake Joseph was frozen which suited us as we snowshoed

Dear Arno_llic, So glad to hear you had a wonderful weekend getaway with us! Always nice to tour the town of Port Carling...next visit we recommend trying Bala, also a quaint town. Happy you enjoyed snowshoeing on the lake. So beautiful this time of year! Obviously disappointed to hear you did not enjoy the taste of your pickerel. It is one of our most popular dishes and I know Chef Jose prides himself on everyone knowing how to cook it to perfection, alike all his other dishes...so the ship still runs smoothly, when he is not driving it. I assure you he will address this immediately with his team and I thank you for bringing this to our attention. Give us one more try with the pickerel on your return visit! Thank you most of all for your feedback. It's how we get better! Sincerely yours, Jody

rkee, Thank you for your questions. At Sherwood Inn, there is a $20.00 per night resort amenity fee that includes a number inclusions including use of all of our waterfront equipment such as paddle boards, canoes, etc. I also includes the wireless internet, parking and even a 9 hole round of golf on one of our academy courses in Muskoka. Lake Joseph Golf Club's 9 hole academy is the closest to Sherwood only being a few minutes away by car or boat. You are certainly welcome to bring you own canoe as well. As for the fridge in your room. Breakfast and lunch items vary in price but a typical budget for breakfast would be $18 and lunch $15-22. Sample menus are available on our website. Not all Inn rooms have fridges. Typically the Inn suites have mini fridges but the typical Inn room does not have a mini fridge. Finally, although the resort is certainly adult oriented, children are more than welcome and typically enjoy the beach and activities as the beach is very child friendly. We hope to see you soon!

Hi Can I bring my kids? Ages 3, 5 and 9
Children are welcome however there are not a lot of activities to keep them busy other than the beach. Our sister resort, Rocky Crest Golf Resort is a more family friendly property with lots to do for the kiddos. Thanks for reaching out! If you have further questions, please don't hesitate to call our reservations team at 1-866-844-2228.

Hi Dan, there is a nice beach that the kids can play on but to be honest, not very many children stay at Sherwood Inn. It is more adult oriented although children are more than welcome. Our sister property on the North End of the lake is more desirable for families. Check out Rocky Crest Golf Resort as it has kids camps, water toys, pools and large spacious suites, really perfect for families. I hope that helps

"Not sure what the room was called, but we had a room with a fireplace. We were on the main floor with a walkout patio"
"Maplewood had the gorgeous views overlooking the lake. Extensive trails to explore all around, very scenic location in the winter."
"Cottages are quaint and quiet"
"If staying at Mapleview, as for top floor to avoid loud noise above."
"Inn room facing the lake is most economical"
US$113 - US$312 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
