“From the moment you arrive, you’ll know you’ve found a very special place, where the nine-to-five world you left behind seems very far behind indeed. It is difficult to believe that just a short distance away, life takes on a much more hectic pace.”
These words taken from our brochure are as true for the business traveler as they are for the leisure traveler. For nearly a century, Severn Lodge has been that quiet oasis away from the hustle and bustle of normal life. And as such, it is the ideal place for meetings such as executive retreats, training sessions, sales seminars and educational workshops.
As one of Ontario’s premier waterfront resorts, we’ve been a favorite meeting place for nearly a century. Our secluded setting and spectacular views provide the ideal environment for productive meetings.
We feature 46 well appointed rooms/suites, fine country dining, meeting facilities for up to 75, and a world of recreation at our doorstep. And yet, we’re only 90 minutes from Toronto in the heart of Ontario’s world famous Muskoka ~ Georgian Bay lake country.
Since its’ historical beginnings in the mid-1800’s, careful attention has been given to preserving the timeless beauty of this bygone era, yet providing all of the modern amenities one would expect from today’s finest resorts. The turn of the century ambiance presents itself in striking detail throughout the resort . . . from the classic white clapboard buildings with crisscross log detail, to the architectural cobblestone sidewalks.
A beautifully secluded and well appointed resort is only part of the requirements for a successful meeting. True, clear fresh thinking does take place in this type of environment. But the facilities themselves are very important to the success of any meeting, and we offer conference facilities for various sized meeting groups along with excellent conference amenities, all with a view of our magnificent waterfront.
All delegate accommodations are housed in various buildings surrounding the Main Lodge and have a view of our waterfront. They are comfortable, warmly appointed, and have a full compliment of guest amenities including individual heat/air, colour TV, AM/FM clock radio, telephone, small fridge, high speed wireless internet access, and a lakeside deck or patio.
And when the work is done, a world of recreation awaits your group both on the property and in the surrounding area. With over 2000 feet of pristine shoreline and hundreds of acres of spectacular forested lands, the recreation opportunities are endless. Delegates can sail our spectacular pine clad islands or canoe our quiet sheltered coves. There’s pedal boating, kayaking, canoeing, stand-up-paddleboarding, water trampoline, tennis, shuffleboard, horseshoes, mountain bikes, and a heated outdoor swimming pool and hot tub. They’ll hike on trails in some of the most beautiful woods they have ever seen, or they can have a nostalgic cruise aboard our very own classic 1922 Ditchburn motor launch. We also have fishing boats & motors for those who would like to catch that trophy fish.
In the surrounding area, there is golf, horseback riding, boat cruises, Las Vegas style gambling at Casino Rama and more.
Last but not least, a successful meeting depends upon the quality of the food and service. And at Severn Lodge, a tradition of fine country dining has existed for nearly a century. There are a variety of choices, and due to our size, we can often cater to special requests such as outdoor barbecues, themed meals, etc.
Severn Lodge has been family owned and operated for nearly a century, and we are dedicated to providing the highest standards of hospitality and personal service. We hope you will give us the opportunity to host your next conference. You can be assured we will do our absolute best to make it both successful and memorable.
