That Muskoka’s iconic landscape is a spectacular backdrop for a wedding should come as no surprise. What will astonish you is just how stunning your day can be in the wilderness north of Toronto.
If you’re considering a wedding in Muskoka, you probably already have your reasons.
Perhaps the groom is a cottager whose family has summered here for generations. Maybe the bride is ‘a local’ who moved away but never forgot that there’s no place like home. Or maybe you’ve visited as a tourist once or twice and want to share this incredible place with people you love because – as they say about Muskoka – ‘once discovered, never forgotten’.
Whatever the reasons, there’s no doubt that a wedding here – lakeside with friends and family – will delight you, your guests and the majestic loons calling out from the waters. But what will make it really special? It’s the weaving of Muskoka ‘touches’ into your celebration – the mingling of natural landscape with added elements of sophistication that will mesmerize those joining you on your special day, leaving everyone all aglow.
The wow factor starts with the venue, of course, and this spring ClubLink’s Muskoka properties are making it easy for you to find the perfect spot to deliver on your dreams. If you’re thinking of Muskoka for a destination wedding, you won’t want to miss their upcoming event showcasing just how beautiful your celebration can be at one of their four locations.
The 2nd Annual Inn-timate Wedding Show featuring Muskoka’s ClubLink properties takes place on Saturday, April 22, 2017 at beautiful Sherwood Inn.
Head to Sherwood Inn from 11am to 3pm on April 22 to meet with Clublink’s Wedding Specialists to discuss the amazing possibilities at Rocky Crest Golf Resort, Water’s Edge at The Lake Joseph Club, Grandview Golf Club and Sherwood Inn. They’ll explain all the services each property provides (such as exceptional food, beverage, rehearsal events and accommodations), and tell you about their recommended partners, including creative florists, professional photographers, officiants and more.
Show attendees will sample sumptuous food prepared by Executive Chef Everett Bell and his team, and get neat ideas in the “wedding tip” session as well. There will be great door prizes, including a round of golf for four at the Lake Joseph Club, and the Grand Prize of a future overnight stay at Sherwood Inn, including dinner and breakfast for two. Guest room viewing and property tours will be available at each ClubLink location also.
Unique among shows, ClubLink’s event offers a more intimate and scenic atmosphere than at larger mass-attendance conferences (and what could be better than visiting the spot where you might say your vows?) Be there this spring to get ideas on everything you need to make your big day a success and learn about some newer trends too, such as mid-week weddings (for more privacy), ‘pop up’ weddings, prix-fixed weddings, four season wedding ideas, and more.
If you’re keen to test-drive a Muskoka wedding experience, book your Wedding Show Accommodations Package and stay the entire weekend at Sherwood Inn for this special wedding planning event.
Your Big Day: The Options Are Endless
Open from early May until October, Rocky Crest Golf Resort offers three spectacular settings to choose from: the Marquee Tent for outdoor weddings, the Algonquin Room with a private deck overlooking beautiful Lake Joseph, and the Rocky Crest Club House that’s available in early spring or late fall.
Recognized for its outdoor weddings, Rocky Crest’s Marquee Tent hosts up to 180 guests under amazing chandelier lighting, allowing you and your guests to experience dancing under the stars and a traditional Muskoka bonfire nearby in spring, summer or fall.
Pre and post-wedding, your guests can enjoy 18 holes of championship golf at Rocky Crest – ranked #4 by Golfweek’s Best Canadian Modern 2016. Family and friends will also enjoy the water park on Lake Joseph, as well as swimming in the heated lakeside pool. (A smaller lake also on site at Rocky Crest allows for even more exclusive events.)
Unique among resorts, Rocky Crest offers a “10K” full-service Wedding Package, which includes a rehearsal dinner and three nights’ accommodation for the bride and groom.

The large dock has ample space for couples wanting to say ‘I do’ right on the waterfront, while the new deck and bar area offer expansive lake views for post-wedding celebrations.
The club has several accommodation options, including their trademark post and beam villas with stone fireplaces, two-storey great rooms, and private decks with barbeques and tables for outdoor dining. The Lake Joseph Club has plenty of activities on site as well, including sailing, paddling, tennis, archery and dedicated mountain bike trails. Fantastic golf – the hallmark of Clublink properties – is also just outside your door at the Lake Joseph Club for pre or post wedding recreation.

The golfers on your guest list will be thrilled to play 18-holes on the Mark O’Meara championship course as well.
Open during the golf season and located just minutes from downtown Huntsville, Grandview Golf Club is close to plenty of varied accommodations and tons of great attractions.
