indulge in SAVOuRY inspired dining on the #CRANROUTE

Muskoka has a growing reputation as a foodie destination and with good reason. Our restaurants boast exceptionally talented chefs that share a commitment to fresh, local ingredients (like fresh, local cranberries).

A number of local chefs have gotten creative by blending the cranberry harvest into their cuisine, and the results have been nothing short of amazing. You will be shocked to discover the versatility and deliciousness of the cranberry as it is infused into BBQ sauces, pasta sauces, salads, sandwiches, and even incorporated into a bountiful breakfast.
