Vintages Dinner




Born and raised in northern Ontario, Everett is no stranger to fresh local food. Spending summers on his grandfather’s farm, he gained a respect and passion for food and farming. Everett loves the outdoors, and strives to use the best and freshest ingredients in season.

Everett started working as a dishwasher at age14 and was cooking by age 15. He excelled in the kitchen and was soon making everything on the menu. This inspired him to attend culinary school at Canadore College in North Bay, Ont. After graduating with a Culinary Management diploma, he began working at the Grandview Resort in Huntsville under the guidance of Executive Chef Ken Schulz. This started an ongoing culinary relationship that transformed Everett into a chef.

After another winter season at Kananaskis, he returned home to Muskoka as the Chef de Cuisine here at Sherwood Inn on Lake Joseph, a tradition for the past seven decades. In spring 2016 he was promoted to Executive Chef & Food & Beverage Manager.


We are justifiably proud of our wine cellar that boasts more than 2,000 bottles. For seven consecutive years, we have won the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for our wine list, which features in excess of 200 exquisite selections. We specialize in vintages from Australia, California, Italy and the Bordeaux region of France.

For a special treat, enjoy an intimate private party in our Cellar Dining Room, adjacent to the wine cellar. (Up to 14 people, reservation required. Private dining charges apply). Our chef and food and beverage team excel at planning, preparing and serving customized multiple-course food and wine pairings.

It is the perfect choice for Muskoka fine dining and team building for executive teams, dinner for your key employees or a great social venue for a private gathering with your closest friends or family.
