Perched on a granite bluff above beautiful Lake Rosseau, this handsome haven offers a luxurious option for groups looking to experience pristine nature without giving up a moment of comfort. Meetings take place in the well-appointed corporate boardroom... or perhaps on a pontoon boat out on the lake. Networking is easy in this set-apart location where delegates are more than happy to be a “captive audience.” And when they take a break from the business of meeting, abundant outdoor recreation, flavourful culinary experiences, canoe regattas, and stargazing parties add a unique ‘cottage country’ touch to corporate events.

Planning Essentials

Get a good night's rest:

The resort lives up to the reputation for luxury and impeccable service that international hotel brand, JW Marriott, is known for, and the guest room are no exception. High ceilings, convenient kitchenettes and Muskoka stone fireplaces all contribute to the luxurious feel of these spacious rooms that are almost more bachelor apartment than hotel room.

Stretch your budget in Canada:

It’s a fact. Event dollars go further in Canada. With the Canadian dollar hovering between 25 and 30% below the U.S. dollar, planners are encouraged to enhance their meeting experience here. Dollars saved on the program requirements can translate into more bells and whistles or your bottom line, you pick.
