Picture a charming, historic inn, nestled among century pines along the shores of Lake Joseph. Imagine that you’ve just said your, “I do’s” in front of a group of your closest family and friends. Now imagine walking your guests back through a forested path towards the reception- and an entire resort reserved just for you. Gorgeous scenery, fine wine, and a delectable meal impeccably prepared by a highly esteemed chef. It’s like nothing else exists- just this perfect moment created especially for you and the love of your life.

Your private retreat
If you’re thinking this type of affair is reserved only for A-list celebrities, think again. At Sherwood Inn, a stellar team of experienced, detail-oriented wedding planners bring this dream to life for dozens of couples each year. Sherwood Inn weddings are exclusive, meaning that the entire resort is closed to accommodate just the private group present for the party. No need to compete with other guests for the attention of the resort staff- your event is Sherwood’s primary focus for the duration of your visit. An intimate property with just 49 rooms, a wedding at Sherwood Inn is chic, serene, and meticulously customized to suit your vision.

Tailor-made boutique weddings
Sherwood’s dedicated wedding staff are available during your entire stay to ensure that every detail has been taken care of, leaving you free to make memories that last a lifetime. Whatever your desired direction for décor, menu, or entertainment, Sherwood’s capable and accomplished staff can make it happen.

“What I love most about our weddings is how each one feels so special. No two weddings are alike here,” says Catering Manager and Wedding Planner Christina VanKempen. “The couples that choose Sherwood Inn for their wedding are looking for the ultimate indulgent retreat for their guests- a getaway where everyone can just focus on spending time with each other in this beautiful setting. It truly is magical.”

Since 1939, Sherwood Inn has developed a reputation as Muskoka’s premier dining destination. Boasting an impressive wine list and a fresh, locally-sourced menu prepared with care, receptions at Sherwood Inn deliver an unparalleled culinary experience. Executive Chef José Caneira has trained beside Michelin Chefs, and today he seamlessly blends his global experience with Muskoka’s finest ingredients.

Pop-Up Weddings in October
For couples seeking a less formal affair, Sherwood Inn is launching its first-ever “Pop-Up” wedding event on October 4th- an exciting offering for partners looking for a more casual, low-key wedding. The Pop-Up wedding will provide all the benefits of an elopement (spontaneity, flexibility, affordability, and ease), within a full-service resort venue. The package is priced at an incredible $1500, and up to 6 additional guests will receive preferred rates on their stay.
