Fantastic stay. Hotel staff were very good. It was a special anniversary and both the hotel and the restaurant went out of the way to make it special. We would stay again.

Amazing place with friendly staff

Posted Jul 21, 2015
Pros: Variety of activities and family oriented
Cons: Breakfast in Cottage restaurant. They should have life gaurd in their swimming pool.
We had pleasant stay with family. Location is beautiful, facilities are great and staff are very professional and friendly. Every body was trying to make our stay pleasant. We will definitely go there again and recommend it to our friends.

Spectacular property & location

Posted Jul 19, 2015
JW is in a great location on Lake Rosseau. The many pools and outdoor amenities along the water makes it a beautiful destination for those hot Muskoka summer weekends. The food and the service was mediocre at best. We waited a long time for drinks (and brought the wrong drink) and the food in the main restaurant and poolside were just 'so-so'. Nothing great lacking in taste and originality. The service poolside was okay but in the main dining room they were backed up, not attentive nor worthy of the price you pay to stay at this resort. Disappointing. Having said that our room was great - clean and well appointed. Loved that we could walk next door to Abbey's Bake House and morning yoga!

Great with Baby

Posted Jul 15, 2015
We decided to stay here because we have a small baby and wanted an "outdoorsy" vacation without taking our baby in a tent/we wanted a heated pool for him. We had an awesome time- the views are breathtaking, the staff was so friendly and helpful, the food was delicious- It was great! I wish the spa was a little more affordable because it looked awesome. I highly recommend, we will return again :)

Great place for a getaway from the city. Beautiful grounds and amenities. Nice staff but sometimes seemed understaffed as it was difficult to get a drink and food from the pool bar.

Great water toys, fun for all ages. Lots of stairs

Posted Jul 6, 2015
Pros: Lovely rooms, excellent staff, water activities. Expensive in high season.
Cons: More outside umbrellas. They used to have water in a cooler with fruit floating in it. Better coffee in rooms.
Location: Abbie's bakery just down the hill, very popular.
Hotel staff excellent, understand staffing is difficult in Muskoka. This was a family get together and everyone had a fab time, lots of water activities. The buffet at The Cottage was excellent.

Resort in Muskoka

The room was large and comfortable. The restaurant (Cottages) had a good and affordable buffet dinner and breakfast. The pool is very nice - indoor and outdoor connected.

visited many times in the past, great location

Posted Jun 9, 2015
Pros: location and amenities
Cons: a deep look into grounds and rooms
Location: self efficient but great towns to visit within 15-30 min
Staff was exceptional, hotel is starting to look run down, lots of noisy kids, seems like possibly time share showing deals
