Known for its dense forests, boundless lakes and pristine natural landscapes, Canada is a country that thrives on its cozy cabin appeal. Visitors can relax by the lake, enjoying nature and watching for a glimpse of a moose or other wildlife.

Canada 150 - Wildlife

The first JW Marriott in Canada provides the quintessential Canadian wilderness experience along with the simple luxuries of intuitive service, fine dining, spacious rooms and engaging activities. Perched atop a 100 foot granite cliff in the district of Muskoka, scenic views of gorgeous Lake Rosseau are always guaranteed.

During the warm summer months guests can spend their days exploring the shores of Lake Rosseau by kayak, stand up paddle board, canoe, pedal boat, motor boat or speed boat. Opportunities abound, to learn about local flora and fauna through guided nature walks, bike tours and wilderness survival sessions. Adrenaline lovers will find their thrill with Personal Watercraft rentals, tube pulls, wakeboard and waterski lessons. Relaxation is easy, with outdoor yoga, meditation, and spa treatments, or simply soaking up the sun on the deck with a craft cocktail or ice cold beer in hand.
