Here is our experience staying at Rocky Crest Golf Resort!
Every room at Rocky Crest is a suite style with a kitchenette that includes a microwave, mini refrigerator, sink, coffee maker and kettle. Each suite also includes flat screen TV’s, air conditioning, a fireplace and much more. We checked into a one-bedroom suite with a king bed and could not have asked for a better room! This was perfect for two people thanks to its massive bedroom with ensuite bathroom, cozy sitting area with a second flat screen tv and a fireplace with an adjoining kitchen. Rocky Crest has 16 of these one-bedroom suites with king beds and another 5 one-bedrooms suites with two double beds.
If you are looking for something with a bit more room, make sure to check out the 14 two-bedroom loft suites which include a queen bed in the master bedroom and a double in the second bedroom, along with two bathrooms.
If you need even more space, there are also two-bedroom suites available that have a king bed in the master and two double beds in the second bedroom. There are 30 of these rooms available and are a perfect fit for a family looking for their own space without feeling like crowded.
Where to Eat & Drink
Rocky Crest Golf Resort is home to three different dining options for all different occasions and tastes.
Bayside Patio & Lounge – The Bayside Patio & Lounge offers a casual dining experience with a nautical decor and stunning views of Lake Joseph and the Rocky Crest grounds. The patio is a very popular spot for some afternoon drinks for both local boaters and resort-goers alike. If you are looking for a place to relax, watch the boats go by and enjoy the nice weather, then Bayside Patio & Lounge is the place to go!
Windows – Windows is a fine dining experience in a traditional Muskoka setting. With a Canadian inspired menu and incredible views of Lake Joseph, this is an experience not to be missed. Make sure to try some of the best steak and seafood the area has to offer. If you are looking for a place to enjoy your dinner while the sun sets beyond the horizon, this is the place to be. Make sure to make a reservation ahead of time to guarantee yourself a window seat!
On The Green – On The Green is not located on the Rocky Crest Resort side with the lodging but instead its found across the street at the Rocky Crest Golf Club. Situated on the stunning 18th green of Rocky Crest Golf Club this relaxed dining experience offers seating both inside the Muskoka log cabin clubhouse and on the patio where you can watch the golfers finish their game. Make sure to take a walk over here for a meal, you will not be disappointed!
