Muskoka Wedding stories
Our Ontario resort is ideally suited for romantic Muskoka weddings in all four seasons; with 3,000 square feet of flexible sun-filled event space, a beautiful lakeside ceremony location, an experienced wedding coordinator, complimentary high-speed internet throughout the resort, 49 guest rooms and cottages, inspired cuisine and plenty of things to do, it’s little wonder that Sherwood Inn is a preferred Muskoka wedding destination .
Having our wedding at Sherwood Inn was a dream come true. We planned a small 6 person ceremony and dinner within a couple of months due to covid and it was wonderful! We had our ceremony on the point amongst the trees, our first dance on the dock, dinner in the private dining room and wedding cake in the Boathouse. We were able to zoom our ceremony with people from all over the world without a glitch. The zoom recording is a unique memory we are happy to have.

We cannot speak highly enough about Christina and the whole team at Sherwood Inn! We decided to book our wedding with them back in December 2018, long before our wedding day in October 2020. We wanted to get married someplace beautiful, with amazing food and a place for all our guests to stay. Sherwood Inn ticked all of our boxes! Everyone we interacted with in the almost two years from booking with them to getting married was kind, helpful, and excellent at their jobs. They are experienced with hosting weddings and really know how to pull it all together beautifully. The team at the Inn – and especially Christina Van Kempen, the events coordinator – really listened to what we wanted and worked hard to make it all happen.

The weekend of our wedding was just magical. Despite all of the changes and uncertainties leading up, it ended up being absolutely perfect. We are so lucky to have been able to spend it at the Sherwood Inn, surrounded by such natural beauty, with our closest family members. Our families are still glowing and talking about how special of a weekend it was. We still can't believe that it was real - it was just so lovely!

The service was excellent, you were a star making any and all requests possible, Emma and Ben were so so happy, and all of the guests were well taken care of. You just rolled with the wild weather and Emma and Ben got their dream day.

We would like to thank you for making our day so special and stress free! We can't say enough about how positive the entire experience was... from your help and attentiveness with coordinating the entire weekend, to all of the staff that we interacted with during our stay. Everyone was so pleasant and genuinely accommodating. It really turned out to be the best day ever for us!! We've pretty much had permanent smiles on our faces since, and look forward to visiting again for our anniversary (I'm pretty sure it will become an annual thing!)

Sherwood Inn hosted our elopement wedding in October. It was beautiful! We stayed in the Boat House for 2 nights and could not have asked for a better experience. Christina Van Kempen and team took care of all the little details to make our stay and our ceremony absolutely perfect. They arranged weather contingency plans, helped us organize our day and ensured no aspect was overlooked. All the staff were extremely helpful in assisting us for the 2 days we spent at Sherwood. In addition to the perfect location, the food was AMAZING! We will definitely be going back to Sherwood Inn for future events.
I cannot express how amazing your entire staff was to our family and extended family. Throughout the wedding planning experience, every question was answered and every fear was laid to rest. Christina Van Kempen was available whenever she was called upon, which as you can imagine, was so important. She was so helpful and patient with all the questions that came with the set up, always calm and reassuring when the bride and groom were not so much
The weekend went seamlessly. Every guest was looked after. No one had to be asked twice to do something. Kindness and professionalism went hand in hand… Everyone went out of their way to make sure that all our needs were met…

We had a truly fantastic wedding weekend and it would never have been possible without your brilliant organisation and knowledge. Everything went so smoothly and we're particularly impressed you managed to change the weather forecast for us at such short notice!!

We would like to express our gratitude to you and the whole Sherwood Inn team for delivering such a magical wedding for us. It could not have gone more smoothly - the set up, decor, food, bar, organisation. We can't stop talking about it and neither can our friends.
We genuinely cannot thank you and your team enough for giving us the most amazing wedding day! We have had so many guests say that Sherwood is one of the best venues that they have ever been to. It was just perfect!!
I want to also thank you and your staff for looking after all of our guests!
We have had many people remarking it was the best wedding they have ever been too.
As well, many people would love to go back!

We had the absolute best time at Sherwood Inn last weekend. I couldn’t imagine a more perfect day. Everything was exactly how I envisioned...so so beautiful. Such an awesome team at Sherwood! Everyone was extremely hard working and positive. And how lucky we were with the weather, right? We simply can’t wait to see our photos. Thank-you again for everything. Our family and friends had a blast. We will most certainly leave a stellar review online.

We both could not believe how well our dream weekend went, and it absolutely could not have been possible without you! From the decorations and set-up on Friday, to the seamless organization of the crazy day on Saturday, everything went off without a hitch.
