    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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’s the perfect location for a wedding.
