I recently had the opportunity to visit a classic Muskoka Resort – Cleveland’s House. Located on the western shores of Lake Rosseau, Cleveland’s House was established in 1869 by Charles Minett and has since become an icon for the traditional resorting experience.

With some of the original buildings still standing and holding out against the pressures of Mother Nature and time you get a real sense of the history that is a part of the present day resort. With a traditional dining room, beautiful views, golfing and daily entertainment (through the summer months,) Cleveland’s House offers something for everyone.

The beautifully decorated dining room, complemented by the professional staff and delicious meals, is something everyone should have the pleasure of experiencing. While enjoying the fresh morning air, I was treated to a “breakfast call,” which saw servers announcing that the restaurant was open by ringing the triangle bell. All guests on the property knew breakfast was ready to be served.

The waterfront makes the perfect playground for children and the young at heart with water toys, an expanse of open water for boaters and fisherman or just relaxing in the peaceful environment of Muskoka. With the new “water park” in place, people can play the day away on the water “icebergs,” trampoline, slides and more. It gives everyone a challenge while they soak up the sun and water. Cleve’s also offers “the most extensive children’s program” in Ontario, and has been awarded as a “5-star Destination” for children’s programming by Hotel Fun for Kids.

Golfers are offered choices at Cleveland’s House with options of playing their nine-hole executive course through Maple Hills Golf Course or tackling the challenging, yet stunningly designed Nick Faldo Course “The Rock.”

Daily entertainment includes everything from live music, a water-ski show, movie nights, theater and so much more. The staff certainly go the extra mile to ensure that every guest is having a great and truly memorable time.

Part of the entertainmentFor meetings, Cleveland’s House is also a conference resort. What better setting to hold a successful meeting then at a resort located on 3,000 feet of one of the most beautiful freshwater lakes in the world? Once you have completed your professional agendas you can relax and clear your head, allowing the natural surroundings to take your mind away. With the motto “We Take Care of Everything,” the professional staff truly take the steps to ensure your meetings or conference is successful and fun.

Come on up to Cleveland’s House and experience timeless Muskoka resorting at it’s finest.
