Overview

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.

Spectacular Service!
Lewis B

Stayed for my wife's 30th birthday. The service from the gentleman who checked us in, Larson (the concierge?) And our housekeeping person was absolutely top notch. Couldn't have asked for a better stay!
Thank you, we will absolutely be back!

Beautiful resort

I attended a 3day conference at this Marriott resort. It's a fabulous resort situated on the beautiful Rosseau lake in Muskoka, Ontario. The views from the resort are breathtaking. It's a very peaceful environment with wonderful walking trails. A fabulous place for a few days getaway!

Not worth it

Check in staff and housekeeping are great. We have been here on several occasions and this will be our last stay. We were given an accessibility room with a rooftop view as attached. I’m assuming because we used our points?! I called to complain and Amanda and Raquel were great but once you speak to Elizabeth or Liz can’t remember the name beware. She doesn’t have the interest of the customer just the $$$. She was going to move us up but to a smaller room, so why bother we stayed out. Keep in mind they charge you a daily resort fee over and above the hotel stay fee. The grounds are beautiful, but the resort is extremely boring. The lower level has been nicely renovated over the last few years but the pool and rooms need a major update. Food, well this one has always been an issue. If you want a fancy steak with frites “fries” essentially go for it, but there is nothing decent to eat if you stay more than a day. You will get bored of the small menu. Not worth the over hour drive to eat elsewhere. I’m sure off season would fill up more if there was a decent menu and more to do.
JW Muskoka you have served over 5 years of great memories, but staff like Liz and the price tag for what you receive just isn’t worth it anymore!!
