We celebrated our 34th Anniversaryin Oct/13 by staying in the main lodge. Beautiful room & upon entering we found a lovely bottle of red wine & fresh baked goodies with a note congratulatiing us. Beautiful touch! Dinner at the Eclipse was wonderful & service the best. Everything at breafast the next moring was fresh & delicious. Cannot wait to try their brunch in December & see how the Deerhurst is decorated for Christmas.

stayed here for four nights in july 2013.check in was extremely slow but courteous.the condo we stayed at was a two bedroom unit overlooking the golf course-sorry i forget the block number- but it was in the middle of construction to add balconies.For the price these condos were very tired and old and I would not recommend staying here unless you are assured that your unit is recently renovated and has a balcony! Its kind of pointless to go on vacation to a nice resort and not be able to get out of your room onto a balcony to enjoy the view.Also the rooms window ledges were very dirty and had dead bugs- very unpleasant.
The food was ok in the dining room though a bit pricey but the food at the Steamers Steakhouse was exceptional- especially the birkshire pork chop- absolutely spectacularly delicious!
The overall resort was very pretty and the beach area also very clean.Took the little boat tour around the lake and that was fun.Took in the "Show" in the theatre- very kareoke and very campy- I mean it was good for a laugh but extremely tacky.Overall a nice place to spend a few days but not much to do in the evening so be prepared to go to bed early.

We went to Deerhurst for the Girls Getaway Weekend and it was fantastic. Last year 6 of us went and stayed in Huntsville but heard so much about Deerhurst we decided to go there this year. Our numbers increased to 8 and it was fantastic. We stayed in the main lodge, our rooms were nice and big, beds were super comfortable. It was great everything was right there. The dance Friday night was a lot of fun entertainment very good. The buffet was great and we had a wonderful view. We ate at the restaurant for dinner and our pre set dinner gave us enough choices everyone was satisfied. The busses worked out perfect no wait and the after party was fun. Next year our numbers are going to grow again because we can't stop talking about it. Can't wait.

Sincere appreciation for posting a review! We are glad you and your girlfriends enjoyed the resort and more importantly your time together. The Pat Benatar concert was a great success on Saturday evening with many concert-goers singing and dancing everywhere on the floor and in the aisles. We look forward to your return next year – if not sooner!

Deerhurst is host of many special event weekends throughout the year. Please feel free to contact us direct or visit our packages page on the web to learn more about our Christmas Concert Series –featuring David Wilcox or Kim Mitchell. Myles Goodwin & April Wine will also be returning to our resort in the Spring of 2014!

My wife and I were looking for somewhere to go for our 30th wedding anniversary and we decided on a whim to go to Deerhurst. We did not have a reservation but were accommodated like royalty from when we walked in the front door. We were greeted by the concierge and guided to the front desk where we were offered an assortment of rooms and provided recommendations based on our needs. We went for a late afternoon walk and the ground staff stopped us to engage in conversation to educate us on our surrounds. We had a quick drink in the lobby bar and decided to eat at Eclipse Restaurant which was a treat from the start. Our waitress was excellent and the food was the best we have had. We spent a quiet evening and in the morning enjoyed a relaxing breakfast overlooking the water. We left before noon and vow to return. A wonderful experience.

We hope your travels bring you back to Muskoka soon– maybe this winter? The winter season offers an equally vibrant natural setting. We do recommend you set time aside to enjoy a romantic horse drawn sleigh ride, followed by couples massage in the Shizen Spa. In the evening join us in the Lobby Bar in a cozy setting by the fireplace to enjoy tapas and wine.

I was there for a small conference and a chance to spend time with my bride. There was nothing bad to say. We went to a live cabaret on the resort and it was very well done. The food at the resort is first class and so is the golf course. I will be going back.

Room Tip: I stayed in the sports pavilion and the room was excellent. Roomy and very clean.

Sincere appreciation for posting a review. We are glad you enjoyed your conference/getaway at Deerhurst Resort!

Decades Live Show is definitely a highlight for many of our guests. Our multi-talented show cast of dancers, singers and musicians create remarkable renditions of many chart-toppers from the 1950s to today. It is a must see!

Thank you for posting the review and compliments and recommendations to others.

We stayed in the Newly Renovated Summit Lodge, it was Nice but Carpet needs to replaced...It is old and needs to be replaced with wood. The hallways also have Carpet which is crazy, it's so hard to keep clean...Upgrade to Tile in Hallways. The breakfast Buffet was cold, and way too many Lineups for Breakfast...Unfortunately they did not prepare well for this and apparently it was their 7th year....I will not stay there again.

Thank you for posting a review. We consistently receive very positive reviews about the renovated Junior One Bedroom Suites and had chosen to carpet them for guest comfort and in order to withstand a busy resort environment. We apologize for the delay in service you experienced at the Eclipse Restaurant, which I assure you is not the level of service Deerhurst Resort is known to provide. We are committed to continuous improvement and delivering the best experience possible and your comments assist us in these efforts. We remain hopeful that you will visit us again in the future.

I was at the resort for a conference recently. Our organization has been there several times in the past for the same conference.
What a beautiful location! I enjoyed taking a few walks on the grounds (When it wasn't raining!)
My room was in the main lodge. For myself, the bed was too cushy. It had several big soft pillows and a very plush bed topper. I prefer to sleep on a firm bed with firm pillows. That being said, when I was in the Summit Lodge Suites last year, I found the bed much more to my taste. I was somewhat disappointed that I did not have a bathtub in my room. The shower I believe was wheel chair accessible and the whole bathroom floor was wet after the shower. Don't bother putting down the bath towel prior to your shower. It will be soaked when you are finished.
While I didn't eat at the restaurants, we had catering. The food was good, I do think that there was a wee bit of a pepper overload on some of our roasted potato's and pasta salads. The selection of food was very nice and the break snacks were great.
Thank you for being the host location once again!. I hope that we will be back again soon!

Room Tip: The rooms in the main lodge do not come with a kitchenette, so if you require a mini fridge you woul...
