Return corporate business is on the rise at Sherwood Inn on Lake Joseph (, reports Sherwood Inn General Manager Esa Paltanen. According to Paltanen, Sherwood Inn is experiencing a substantial increase in repeat business from companies reserving corporate functions and group events. “The good news story of 2015 is the number of return corporate group bookings Sherwood Inn is receiving. Now more than ever, groups are rebooking shortly after departure and/or earlier in the year,” states Paltanen.

Just two hours north of the GTA, Sherwood Inn provides a first-class Muskoka venue for corporate events, meetings, executive retreats, incentive experiences and small conferences in Ontario. Situated in the heart of Muskoka, one of Canada’s most scenic vacation destinations, Sherwood Inn offers a truly unique resort conference experience. The resort provides a group event venue where business can be conducted in a tranquil and relaxing environment surrounded by natural beauty. For corporate functions, corporate retreats, and other group events for up to 100, Sherwood Inn has 49 guest rooms, 3,000 square feet of flexible event space and a dedicated conferences services team. For businesses that want to add a little extra fun to their resort conference, Sherwood’s team will customize special programs, like an outdoor team building event or a group interactive cooking session and wine pairings.

“The new trend in corporate event bookings at Sherwood Inn over the last two years is for companies to rebook with us within a three-month window after their last company event. Many groups are returning to Sherwood Inn multiple times throughout the course of the year. Over the last four years, we have found that 27% of our corporate groups returned to Sherwood a minimum of once a year. And of those returning groups, 55% have booked a minimum of three times each year. Group events and corporate functions are increasingly becoming a bigger part of Sherwood Inn’s business each year. Ten years ago, our market mix was 60% leisure business and 40% group. Today, it’s exactly the opposite with 60% business coming from groups and corporate events and 40% from leisure. Naturally, we are very pleased that so many of our corporate customers rebook at Sherwood Inn. It speaks to our Sherwood Inn motto: Visit us once. Love us forever,” says Paltanen.
