Sophisticated resort and spa overlooking Lake Rosseau in Ontario’s splendid cottage country

The Lowdown

Canada’s first JW Marriott Resort & Spa is in the heart of Muskoka, a natural, unspoiled lake country beloved by Torontonians. Set on a granite bluff overlooking serene Lake Rosseau, this resort takes cottage country seriously. Rooms and suites come equipped with stone fireplaces and kitchens and are decorated in an elegant country style. Days here are spent hiking, paddling, golfing, snowshoeing, ice-skating and splashing (in the lake, outdoor pool or indoor pool)—or doing nothing at all over a treatment or two in the lovely lake-view Spa Rosseau.

In the Area

The Rock Golf Club is a 6,650-yard par-71 natural wonder designed by six-time PGA Champion Nick Faldo. With outcrops of granite and forest-lined fairways, it’s at its most stunning in autumn when the deciduous forests erupt in a riot of red, oranges and yellows (but it can be played in spring and summer, too). Canoe, kayak or splash down the giant inflatable waterslide at the resort’s private beach. Come nightfall, arrange for a bonfire at the Fish Rock fire pit and have a wonderful evening under the stars.

Beautiful place to stay
Reviewed 2 days ago

I stayed here last week and I have to say its beautiful there. The staff are very friendly. The rooms were so spacious, the beds were comfortable and there was a kitchenette (stove, frig and microwave). We stayed for 2 nights and the food was really good. The road going to the resort is very windy. I would recommend anyone to go and spend some time here as its worth the trip. They have a pool inside and one that goes right outside to. The hot tub is outside which was really nice as it was snowing when we where there.

Fun times...sort of

Loved the renovations ! We are frequent flyers to this resort .Our entire family of 20 spent Christmas there for 3 days had a terrific time .
We usually visit at a time that there is less people (Sun/Mon ) .
Staff very attentive.New Spa manager very friendly .

I had a situation related to cross contaimanation ( fish allergies )...I informed the waitress that I had a fish allergy ,at our table there were assorted appetizers .Oysters /dumplings and meat tray.
The resort followed up on the incident ..received two phone calls asking if I was feeling ok .
Suggestion ..perhaps Oysters be covered or muscles not open aired .
My allergy is not as serious as some people ...Needless to say my nights sleep was disruptive due to feeling ill .
I am surprised that the Manager did not call or a reimbursement or partial return certificate .
JW Marriott 's are luxury resorts ...one pays resort tax of $39 a night for being there .
In return the same standards should of applied .

Wonderful Birthday Weekend

Resort is beautifully set on Lake Rosseau. Got upgraded to a lovely Lakeview room for my wife's birthday. All amenities are what you would expect from such a Resort and had a superb dinner at the Chophouse. Everything was perfect. We would definitely go back.

Outstanding Thanksgiving Long weekend Getaway -
Reviewed 3 days ago

Large waterview room facing Lake Rosseau, complete with kitchenette , fireplace and upscale bath.
Very comfortable, with outstanding nature views. Plenty of activities offered by this hotel, as well as many small towns in the immediate drivable vicinity makes this JW and outstanding location and stay. During summer and fall, mini shops are located near the
old church bakery - perfect stop for coffee and your favorite baked goods. Local town of Bala hosts an annual cranberry festival which is a must see during the fall. Location is perfect for any family event or occasion.

The Crossroads located in the town of Rosseau ( 20 min drive ), is operated by 2 former chef's of the Fairmont Royal York Hotel. The food and desert is amazing !
