Chef Everett Bell.jpg

Born and raised in northern Ontario, Chef 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 - which is where he discovered his love for the culinary arts. Driven by a passion for the outdoors and sourcing local ingredients, Chef Everett strives to use the freshest local ingredients available during each season.

Chef Everett began working as a dishwasher at age 14 and was cooking by age 15. His passion for food started early as he excelled in the kitchen and was soon making everything on the menu. This inspired Chef Everett to attend culinary school at Canadore College in North Bay, Ont. Upon graduating with a Culinary Management diploma, he began working at the Grandview Resort in Huntsville under the guidance of Executive Chef Ken Schulz - eventually achieving his Red Seal certification in 2009. Since then Chef Everett has grown to oversee the culinary operations at both The Lake Joseph Club and Sherwood Inn. 


We are justifiably proud of our wine cellar that boasts more than 2,000 bottles.  We have won the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for our wine list, numerous years, 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.
