Idyllic 4-season resort now showing its age

Michael P on Feb 04, 2024

We stayed at the JW Marriott Rosseau just after New Year's in January 2024 for four nights. The rate was approximately 250 CDN$ per night room only. Although this is my first review, we've stayed there many times during the past decade in both summer and winter. The Rosseau is - first and foremost - a family resort so if you are looking for the JWM experience of Honk Kong or Singapore then you will need to recalibrate for luxury, Canadian cottage country style. The 'kids first' theme extends to a comprehensive programme of children's activities each day and for different ages. There's usually hot chocolate by the front door in winter and 'smores' evenings around the campfire. In the winter kids can choose from craft-based workshops and in the summer Lake Rosseau offers an endless variety of watersports. Some are included and some attract a supplement, as one would expect. The 4-season pool is a huge draw, particularly in winter when you can do snow angels in your swimmers and then jump into the hot tub! There is also a Spa (a HydroSpa franchise), a decent little gym (treadmills, ellipticals and a few weights) and a huge conference wing for weddings and functions. The rooms are spacious with exposed Muskoka granite fireplaces (gas rather than wood), wooden floors and the rooms facing the lake (a worthwhile upgrade if you've come all this way) have far-reaching views. For a family of four the 1-bed suites are ideal as they have a King in a separate bedroom and a pull-out double perfect for two younger kids. The bathrooms are thoughtfully designed with his 'n' hers basins, a separate loo, and separate shower - so no long queues in the morning! Amenity sets are Molton Brown (a supermarket brand here in the UK but apparently held in high regard in North America). There is also a very useful kitchenette with two-burner stove, dishwaher, sink, fridge and a reasonable array of cookwear - more than enough for breakfast and lunch. In winter it is worth asking for a room in the main building rather than in Paignton House (the newer wing near the lake). Although the rooms are identical the centre of gravity in winter moves to the main building and so it is worth staying there. The opposite is true in summer. The catering at The Rosseau is OK - nothing more. Breakfast is generous, The Lakes offers pub grub, Teca is a perfectly acceptable Italian eatery and dining options top out at the Muskoka Chophouse. Here, the food is good (decent steaks, generous portions, daily specials) but it's more in keeping with the location rather than a destination resto. Having said that, the wine list in the Chophouse is superb and overseen by Brendan, a sommelier of great knowledge and long-standing. Brendan always has something 'off-list' which can include the First Growths and Cult Californians that he travels to Toronto to secure. Brendan is an institution at the Rosseau and one of the main reasons we go - nothing is ever too much trouble and the service is impeccable. We wouldn't keep going back if we didn't like it so drawbacks are few. The valet parking isn't worth it as you can park for free about 50 yards away. The Crystal Head vodka bar isn't in keeping with a resort of this standing (I didn't see anyone doing shots) and the coffee in the coffee shop is a bit Timmies rather than Barista. The public spaces are due a refresh as they are now showing their age; decor dates quickly. But I am quibbling - we all love it at the Rosseau and the kids can't wait to go back next year.

Girls Night

tamaram464 (Nobleton, Canada) on Jan 30, 2024

The JW Marriott is a great place to stay. Very clean , great staff , beautiful location . However I would probably not go again during a weeknight (we went on a Thursday night) as they are pretty short staffed and most amenities were closed. There was also not many options for restaurants during the week and not a lot of options for food on the menus that were available. Food is definitely overpriced and was good but I have had cheaper for better quality.
