The restaurant is being re-positioned to reflect local suppliers and products, some of which is organic, and will be a value priced menu with the focus on creativity. HV will also be a part of “Savour Muskoka,” an association that is partnered with the Ministry of Tourism to promote creative culinary regions in Ontario.

We offer a unique outdoor licensed Muskoka patio, with creative and value priced menu options, a beautiful view of Peninsula Lake, and summer evening entertainment” says Jerry Feltis, General Manager. “HV lakeside resort serves a niche of guests looking for the beachside Muskoka experience, from $ 89.00- $ 175.00 per night room average.
