Sherwood Inn Wins Muskoka Conservancy Built Heritage Award

Sherwood Inn on Lake Joseph, a Luxury Muskoka Inn and Clublink Resort, is Honoured to Receive a 2015 Built Heritage Award From the Muskoka Conservancy

MUSKOKA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - July 31, 2015) - Sherwood Inn on Lake Joseph (http://www.sherwoodinn.ca), a luxury Muskoka resort that is regarded as one of the most romantic inns in Ontario, is honoured to receive a 2015 Built Heritage Award from the Muskoka Conservancy. Member of the prestigious ClubLink family of golf clubs and fine resorts, Sherwood Inn, a historic lakefront resort that defines old Muskoka style, specializes in romantic couples getaways, golf vacations, group and corporate events, and intimate resort weddings.

The Muskoka Conservancy Built & Cultural Heritage Awards recognizes Muskoka properties that have demonstrated an ongoing commitment to stewardship and preservation. Among other criteria, a property may be selected for the award due to its historic significance, or because it represents a unique example of a specific architectural style or type. Consideration is also given to the condition of the building and the extent to which its architectural or historic integrity has been retained if it has been changed or modified. The recipients of the 2015 awards were announced on June 6th at the Muskoka Conservancy's Annual General Meeting, which was held at the Nipissing University Campus. The Muskoka Conservancy's mandate is "to nurture, conserve, and protect Muskoka's natural and built heritage for future generations."

Sherwood has enjoyed a rich and storied history as a Muskoka inn. The main lodge building as it stands today was built in 1939 by Toronto lawyer Charles (Harry) Draper who built the inn to look like an elegant New England country home with classic neo-Georgian influences. Throughout the years, Sherwood Inn has managed to retain its original style, even after a devastating fire in 2009 destroyed the lobby, lounge and dining room. Sherwood Inn's present owner ClubLink has restored the inn to its former glory. In 2010, extensive renovations to the inn were completed, including many upgrades to reflect the amenities expected of a contemporary luxury resort, yet preserving all its historic charm.

"We are very pleased that Sherwood Inn has been recognized by the Muskoka Conservancy with a Built Heritage Award," says Esa Paltanen, General Manager of Sherwood Inn. "Since ClubLink acquired the Sherwood Inn property in 1998, we have made it a priority to preserve the inn's historic character and architectural integrity; retaining all the characteristics that have made this Muskoka heritage inn a truly unique and special place."
