Overview
With day spa, restaurant and access to recreational water activities on site, this hotel is a good choice for guests looking for more than basic accommodations.

Each room comes with cable TV, a coffeemaker, an iron and ironing board, a clock, a hair dryer, bathrobes, individual climate control, free Wi-Fi and free local calls. Select rooms feature a jetted tub and a fireplace. Rooms and cottage-style accommodations are available. Some cottages feature extra amenities, such as a private dock or a kitchenette.

Free on-site parking is available. Pets are permitted for a fee of $35 per stay. Breakfast is available for a surcharge of $15 per day. 

The on-site restaurant, Vintages Dining Room, overlooks the lake and features an extensive wine menu. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner May through October but features limited hours in the winter, when it serves lunch and dinner on Fridays, all three meals on Saturdays, and breakfast until 11 am on Sundays. The inn itself is only open on weekends November through April.

Other amenities include an on-site spa (Amba Health and Beauty), complimentary access to kayaks, canoes and paddleboats, a fitness centre, tennis courts and a free boat round-trip shuttle to Lake Joseph Golf Club.

The Muskoka Lakes Museum is a 9-minute drive away. Ryan Fine Art Gallery is 6 minutes away by car. Lake Joseph is a 13-minute drive away, while restaurants are nearby (9 minutes by car) and include Just Crepes and Tapp's Cottage Eatery. (All driving estimates: Google Maps)
