An Unforgettable Muskoka Experience

Luxury in the Heart of Nature

The scenic landscape upon which JW Marriott The Rosseau Muskoka Resort & Spa is built originally housed a summer resort known as ‘Paignton House' which opened in 1894. Now this spectacular location is home to a luxurious destination resort.

Experience Muskoka's Finest

John Frederick Pain and his wife Charlotte Tuck opened the resort in 1894, catering initially to fishermen and farmers, and eventually to seasonal vacationers. Today, guests are invited to discover modern luxury set in Muskoka's pristine, natural beauty.

Rich in History

The foundation of the original Paignton House on “Fish Rock” peninsula can still be seen from the rooftop terrace of the current building, and a wing of the modern luxury resort is named ‘Paignton House’ after the first hotel that welcomed visitors to this beautiful place.
