The ultimate in cottage country retreats
Enjoy the Canadian winter to the absolute fullest at this famed Muskoka resort, tucked a mere two hours from Toronto in Huntsville and right on the outskirts of Arrowhead Provincial Park. This all-seasons retreat spans 760 acres of idyllic, wooded landscape bordering Peninsula Lake and Sunset Bay, providing both striking views and ample space for outdoor frolicking. Numerous styles of guest rooms, a variety of dining venues, and abundant indoor and outdoor activities make Deerhurst the ideal getaway spot for family vacations, romantic escapes or getaways with friends.
A snug yet elegant stay
Warm rosy cheeks and frosty toes in your Main Building Room, tucked into the centre hub of the resort in close proximity to the restaurants, indoor pool, spa and sports shop. Outfitted with a soft bed covered in a plush white comforter, desk and separate vanity area, you'll also have free reign to communicate with the outside-Muskoka world using the complimentary WiFi services.
Activities abound – right outside your room
Deerhurst caters to every pastime, every season, with an array of adventurous and relaxing activities. Experience the true wonder of winter with an old-fashioned sleigh ride or on-site skating, cross-country skiing or snowshoeing. Raise your adrenaline on a guided snowmobile tour or rent one on your own and explore 2,000 kilometres of groomed trails in the area. If snowboarding or skiing is your sport of choice, there's plenty of fresh powder next door at Hidden Valley Highlands. After a long day in the crisp, cool air, rejuvenate with a swim at the indoor pool, get your blood pumping at the fitness centre, or book an appointment at Shizen Spa, where soothing services and treatments include massage therapy, body wraps, manicures, pedicures and facials.
Delectable meals and engaging evenings
Memorable dining experiences are yours to savour, from bountiful breakfasts to dinner menus created with locally grown ingredients. Dining choices range from the newly renovated Eclipse, where you can taste some of the same dishes enjoyed by world leaders during the 2010 G8 Summit; Maple, which serves casual, home-style dishes including pizza and sandwiches as well as full entrees; and the Lobby Bar, the perfect spot for an après ski beverage by the fireplace, a nightcap or late night snack.
