Muskoka, ON (PRWEB) November 21, 2013
A leader among Ontario Inns, Sherwood Inn on Lake Joseph has been awarded the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for 2013. The award coincides with the completion of upgrades to the Maplewood Building just in time for the festive season. The $80,000 renovation includes complimentary wireless internet in all 49 guest rooms, cottages, meeting rooms, and common areas so guests can stay connected from their desk, bed or on the dock.
“The recognition of our Ontario resort is testament to the commitment of our team to providing outstanding hospitality to our guests,” said Esa Paltanen, General Manager of the Sherwood Inn. “To complete the guest experience, the 14 remaining rooms in the Maplewood building have received a timely upgrade to lighting, artwork, soft goods, room fabrics and desks all of which have modernized the rooms with all technological conveniences that you would have at home without taking away from the breathtaking scenery of Lake Joseph through the windows and balconies during all four seasons,” said Paltanen.
To qualify for a Certificate of Excellence, businesses must maintain an overall rating of four or higher, out of a possible five, as reviewed by travelers on TripAdvisor, and must have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months. Additional criteria include the volume of reviews received within the last 12 months.
To celebrate their new look, The Sherwood Inn is now offering customizable and memorable holiday parties that range from gourmet private luncheons, fire-side lounge style gatherings, wine and cheese receptions or a chef’s table in a private wine cellar. Sherwood Inn is renowned for offering its guests an authentic Ontario dining experience. The Inn uses seasonal, fresh, local ingredients whenever possible and many of the herbs and vegetables are harvested from their on-site garden. Many of the dishes are Muskoka-inspired cuisine, which includes cranberry enriched dishes. The Inn boasts an extensive wine cellar with more than 200 labels and has won multiple Wine Spectator Awards of Excellence. While overlooking picturesque Lake Joseph, guests of the Inn can expect gracious hospitality, luxurious pampering, absolute tranquility and exceptional service at the Ontario resort.
