    Picture-Perfect Venue for a Picture-Perfect Day!

    We chose Deerhurst almost immediately after getting engaged in 2020 and set our date for September 30, 2022. Deerhurst instantly caught our eye because it looks like something out of a fairytale! The venue is gorgeous - the views, the different locations to have a ceremony and reception and take photos - everything is perfection. We were working within a relatively tight budget for a wedding, and Deerhurst provides so many options that it was easy to have both the day we dreamed of and worked hard to plan, in addition to the perfect venue, food, and service. We never felt like we had to compromise. We chose our ceremony location as Sunset Bay Lawn and our reception was located in the Tom Thompson Room. The night before, we had a complimentary bonfire with all of our friends, our rehearsal dinner was absolutely delicious and Haley Mumby (Deerhurst's Wedding Coordinator) was there to respond to our every question as we rehearsed, and to top it all off, as my now-husband and I were preparing for our rehearsal dinner in our complimentary suite, Haley had chocolate-covered strawberries and prosecco delivered right to our room for us to enjoy! As we planned every last detail over almost 2 years, we had 1001 questions and Haley answered every single one. You can tell that Haley is a seasoned professional who cares about the work she does and the couples she works with. Haley was responsive to all of our requests and questions and we absolutely knew she was just as dedicated to giving us the perfect day we'd dreamed of as we were. We cannot say enough good things about Deerhurst, Haley, and it's amazing staff who came together to facilitate the best possible wedding experience. Our guests can't stop talking about the stunning location, how delicious the food was, their comfortable stay in the Pavilion Suites, and how they'd had such an amazing time overall! If you want a picture-perfect day that feels just as relaxed and easy as it is polished and stunning, then Deerhurst is the way to go!

    Could Not Have Been More Perfect!

    I truly do not know where to begin about how amazing our entire wedding experience was with Deerhurst Resort!! Haley Mumby, our wedding coordinator/event specialist from Deerhurst was the most wonderful, organized, kind, helpful, mind-easing human ever. If you want a seamless wedding planning experience, and a stress-free wedding day, BOOK HERE! From start to finish Haley dealt with everything in a way that made us feel like we didn't have to worry about a thing. It is clear she knows exactly what she's doing. She had an answer and solution for everything. She is so efficient and it was a luxury having someone like that to work with.

    Aside from Haley being so wonderful, the rest of the Deerhurst staff were also amazing! We felt like we made a bunch of new friends in their staff. They were so accommodating, always checking in on us and asking if we needed anything or if they could help. I felt like a celebrity. Cannot say enough good things.

    We had a pizza party and bonfire on the beach on the night before the wedding, the Friday evening. It was amazing and everyone had a blast. The food at the reception on Saturday was SO good, everyone commented on it and said how great it was. We had the chicken and salmon as our two main entree options and a vegetarian risotto as a veg option. Everything was perfect.

    The ceremony was right by the lake on Sunset Bay Lawn, again, could not have been a more perfect set-up. Haley and Stephanie were there to help keep us on track and it was delightful to have them. There are so many beautiful spots for photos on the grounds it's hard to choose!

    I could go on and on about this weekend, but I'll wrap this up by saying if I could do this all over again, I would do it EXACTLY the same and not change one thing. From the minute we arrived to the minute we left, we were treated wonderfully, and I have not one complaint or regret. Thank you SO MUCH to Deerhurst for being so professional yet kind and fun. We will never forget this weekend and we are so excited to come back to the most beautiful resort and celebrate every year! We feel very lucky to have had such an amazing experience. Do yourself a favour and book here. THANK YOU!!!!

    Absolutely Amazing

    We were married December 2020, yay pandemic weddings. From the beginning of the pandemic all the way through to our wedding day (and beyond), the wedding coordinator Haley was so attentive, transparent, and helpful. We can honestly say our wedding would not have been a success without her and the rest of the Deerhurst staff. Every staff member we interacted with was incredibly kind and generous. We felt completely safe and welcomed throughout our stay, as did our guests which was so important to us. We had to make a number of adjustments due to the pandemic, and Haley was with us every step of the way. She went above and beyond for us. We feel so lucky and we are so happy we chose Deerhurst Resort to host our wedding.

    Spectacular venue with caring and attentive staff

    My husband, myself, and all our guests could not have been more pleased with Deerhurst Resort.
    Haley, our wedding planner, was courteous, knowledgeable, kind, attentive, quick to respond, and incredibly patient.
    She let our vision come to fruition and we had the perfect day.
    The wait staff were friendly and professional and the food was unreal!
    Deerhurst is elegant, picturesque, and incredibly romantic. It鈥檚 the perfect location for a wedding.

    A wonderful wedding venue

    We got married at Deerhurst resort in late October and everything went off without a hitch. We had an entire weekend of activities - bonfire, ceremony, wedding, and brunch. The value for investment was excellent and actually surprising. The food was fantastic and many who attended commented on how great it was. We had a plated meal with a chicken, pork, and vegan option and the meat was cooked to perfection. The venue rooms were beautiful and clean and we had ample time to set up. Most of all, I gained a sixth bridesmaid in Haley Mumby, the wedding coordinator. What a superhero she was. She was nothing but supportive, responsive, and helpful in the months leading up to the wedding. Never made me feel silly for any questions and was flexible in my requests. She hosted the ceremony rehearsal, made sure everything ran smoothly on the wedding day, and even ensured my wedding paperwork was sent to my room. It was a beautiful weekend at a beautiful place with fantastic staff. Thank you, Deerhurst!

    Sept. 8/2018

    We loved our wedding at Deerhurst! It is a stunning venue with so many places for everything, ceremony locations, halls for receptions, photo opportunities everywhere no matter the style. Haley Mumby was the coordinator for us and she went above and beyond for our day, and leading up to; always responded to us and answered every question we had. With her, everything felt so easy and stress free. Our guests loved being able to stay right there, most of them made it a whole weekend trip, managing to fit in a round of golf! We had so many people reach out to tell us how great of a time they had and how much they loved the location! I would highly recommend this resort!

    We had the best time!

    Trying to plan a wedding during the pandemic was rough, but Haley was understanding and accommodating throughout. Our room was huge and the service was fantastic- on our wedding day I received multiple calls from the front desk making sure that we had everything we needed. Haley helped the day run very smoothly and it was honestly amazing. I cannot tell you how many compliments I received about our dinner- it was cooked to perfection! Thank you Haley and the rest of the Deerhurst team for making our day so special! We will definitely be returning and I know that our guests will be as well!

    The Perfect Place for Your Special Day

    Honestly, we cannot say enough amazing things about Deerhurst. To preface, my husband and I have made annual trips up to Deerhurst to kick off our golfing season over the last five years. Deerhurst was also where he proposed, which from what he has said, was such a great experience planning and coordinating with the restaurant team. It only made sense to have our wedding in the same sentimental place that we have grown to love - this is a decision that we know we will never regret.

    From the initial planning stages, Haley was our saving grace. Haley sent out all the details that we needed to be mindful of for the wedding day, and also answered any of our many queries as they came up within a timely manner. Our communications were always pleasant, and my husband and I were always so grateful we had Haley to turn to every time we signed off an email.

    Fast forward to our menu tasting, which we decided to have on Valentine's Day, and we were just blown out of the water. First of all, the service and complimentary champagne and dinner we received just left us feeling so blissful and grateful (it happened two years ago and I sill can't forget the feeling). The actual tasting was difficult, because everything tasted so AMAZING. It was so hard to choose our final decisions for our wedding day. But we did - and our guests have had nothing but positive things to say about the food at our wedding. The three course meal from the soup, to the steak or char, to the tarte was absolutely delicious. I would have had that exact meal every day for a week if I could.

    Fast forward to our wedding day, which we postponed twice due to the pandemic, and everything ran so smoothly! Haley ran through our ceremony the night before to ensure that we knew where to go and what to do. Everything after that was seamless. I was truly blown away by the service on all ends. From the hotel reception desk, to the proshop booking team, to our shuttle bus driver, and to our servers at the reception, every interaction we had with a Deerhurst staff member was so pleasant, so warm, and so accommodating. I honestly cannot say how impressed and grateful I am to all the servers at our wedding reception. We can honestly say our wedding day would not be the memorable and joyous day it was without them.

    From the bottom of our hearts, we send our most sincere gratitude to Deerhurst and their entire team for making our wedding day what it was. Thank you!

    Our Muskoka renewal

    We had no clue what kind of getaway we could expect during the pandemic summer but we knew we wanted to get away. We also needed the perfect place to renew our vows on our 10th anniversary and we couldn't be happier with the choice we made. Because of the pandemic our planning window was a lot smaller than it normally would be. So instead of lining things up six months ahead of time we started making calls two months before our August getaway. Fortunately Haley Mumby was able to take our vision and make it happen. What was most helpful was the calmness with which she approached the myriad of questions and concerns we had. In the end we had simple beach ceremony that was both classy and laid back, followed by an evening dinner for our group of 20 on the rotunda porch. And the quality of the food was exceptional -- it certainly wasn't "wedding food". As a venue Deerhurst turned out to be the perfect mix of scenic beauty and experiential destination. If we weren't on the beach we were in a kayak, standup paddle board, on the golf course or enjoying a morning group hike up to the top of the lookout (where we happened upon a family of deer and later a large family of 30 wearing matching Friends t-shirts). If you're looking for a destination locale I'd highly recommend Deerhurst. We drove away with hearts full of love and heads full of memories.
