Windermere Buzz

I had dinner over at Windermere House just recently.  No, not  in the pub or on the patio but in the main dining room.  Yup, they let me in, I couldn’t believe it either – LOL.
The food services are now managed by Oliver & Bonacini this season and I have to say the food quality, ambiance and service was just superb. I don’t normally go plugging places on here but I do have to say after experiencing every resort and restaurant around Muskoka and area I have yet to find something that compares. It will be interesting to see how the off-season goes though.

I was at Windermere on a Friday night and the entire resort was just buzzing with everyone in such a great mood.  The veranda area was jam packed with a gentle breeze drifting off the lake. A small band was performing  with just the right jazzy rhythms.  I closed my eyes and imagined what it must have been like back in the day.  It felt like we were there. I’m going to have to swing by Windermere again just to see if I can capture that same feeling.

    We used to go to Windermere in the 50’s with my mom and dad and the Sloans, friends from Gravenhurst. The dinning room meals were GREAT.

    windermere house is definitely a proud and grand hotel of old. I remember when it burnt I was living up north and it was so sad, I think it was the start of me coming home to muskoka back to my roots.
