The venerated wilds of Muskoka make for an energizing retreat, where towering pines reach down to placid waters and crackling fires cast shadows into the distance. It has inspired Group of Seven paintings and chairs designed to while away thoughtful afternoons, and played host to city dwellers and those with backcountry close to their heart. The Sherwood Inn embodies traditional Muskoka charm in its cozy accommodations, while still delivering guests the conveniences of modern day amenities tucked into a cluster of century-old pines.
Just off the coast of Lake Joseph, Sherwood Inn is the perfect retreat for outdoor exploration. Snowshoe tracks left in the cold of winter fade to the invigorating hiking treads of early spring, and a variety of boats peruse the shoreline as long as weather permits. The resort also has cross-country ski rentals free of charge and a man-made ice rink where flakes fall on gentle gliders or rousing bouts of hockey. To perfectly cap days of outdoor fun, guests can congregate by the fire pit for company and good conversation. Guests will also enjoy a tour of Johnston's Cranberry Marsh, where three generations of expertise has seeded premium local produce at Canada's biggest harvester of cranberries, and where a large range of wines are presented for your pleasure, from dry to desert.
At Sherwood Inn, a series of guestrooms are outfitted with classic decor to reflect the traditional character of Muskoka. Amenities range, but all accommodations include a 32-inch TV and highspeed internet, with some offering separate living spaces and private whirlpools. To wind down before burrowing into your room, the on-site spa offers relaxing treatments like a European rose body mud.
During your stay, sample fresh local fare from Vintages Dining Room, a founding member of Savour Muskoka and consistent recipient of the CAA/AAA Four Diamond Plate Award. At this elegant restaurant, Executive Everett Bell reigns over a menu of seasonal favourites, crafting Georgian Bay pickerel, chicken risotto and other delectable dishes using herbs and vegetables straight from the garden. The restaurant's wine list has won multiple Wine Spectator Awards for its selection from quality producers, and glasses are matched with thematic entrees to compliment price and style considerations.
