Is there anything as quintessentially Canadian as Muskoka, with its towering pines, majestic lakes and iconic outcroppings of the Canadian Shield? Within this natural paradise, JW Marriott The Rosseau Muskoka Resort & Spa is ranked No. 7 out of the top 20 resorts in Canada by Condé Nast. The Rosseau is located on prime Muskoka real estate, on a granite bluff overlooking Lake Rosseau, which shares the stage with Lake Muskoka and Lake Joseph as Muskoka’s “three big lakes.”
Featuring some of the most expensive cottage country real estate in North America, these lakes are lined with palatial cottages owned by corporate leaders and film, sports and rock stars. Spectacular scenery awaits around every turn, and travelling around the lakes by boat is incredibly beautiful. The historic R.M.S. Segwun, which first travelled the lakes in 1887, still visits the JW Marriott The Rosseau Muskoka Resort & Spa today.
The atmosphere is serene, the views breathtaking and the opportunity to “Own Muskoka” will soon be a reality at this coveted destination, when Canadian Niagara Hotels launches the sale of condominium hotel suites for prices starting from the low $200,000s.
Owners will experience the resort lifestyle without the maintenance of a cottage. The resort is located halfway between the historic communities of Port Carling and Rosseau.
Situated on the Indian River, Port Carling features locks that join Lakes Muskoka and Rosseau and is referred to as the Hub of the Lakes. This quaint village has shops, restaurants, a library and museum. In the even-numbered years, it is the site for the Muskoka Lakes Association Antique Boat Show.
The Rosseau community is home to intriguing arts and crafts shops, the historic Rosseau General Store, restaurants, a marina, public beach and charming buildings. During the summer, farmers’ markets abound in the area, and in late August, people come from far and wide to attend the Rosseau Fall Fair.
The Rosseau is also just minutes to Bala, located where Lake Muskoka empties into the Moon River. The Cranberry Capital of Ontario, Bala features the province’s largest cranberry farms. Muskoka’s only winery is also located there, and Bala Bay is a favourite with sailboat enthusiasts. Bala also boasts the famous Kee to Bala concert venue that has offered a star-studded roster of performers every summer since 1942.
The Rosseau offers opportunities for hiking, biking, boating and swimming, and golf is available next door. Owners at the resort will enjoy access to spectacular 5-star amenities including a luxurious full-service spa and breathtaking views of the lake, sand beach and rugged surroundings. Can life get any easier or more fun?
