Grandview Resort slatted to reopen in 2015

RESORT RE-OPENS

Alison Brownlee

Jo-Anne McGovern, manager of Muskoka Grandview Resort, says renovations continue at the lakefront property in anticipation of the summer season.

GRANDVIEW RESORT MUSKOKA NEWS!

HUNTSVILLE – A previously shuttered resort on the shores of Fairy Lake is about throw open its doors once again.

Sheldon Rosen, owner of the new Muskoka Grandview Resort, said his company has been eager to reopen the facility for some time.

“We’ve been operating here, for three years now, the rental management program for the owners without the facilities,” said Rosen. “Now we’ve come to an arrangement with ClubLink to lease the resort property and start operating the restaurants and some of the recreational facilities.”

He said immediate plans include reopening the dockside restaurant, which is on the water, and the recreational centre, which houses the indoor pool, hot tub, fitness centre and tennis court, and restoring the docks.

He said the restaurant in the main building would reopen in the fall as the dockside restaurant closes for the season. He noted the company’s office has moved into the main building, too.

The anticipated opening date for the dockside restaurant is July 1.

He said the restaurants would be open to the public.

“And we plan to have live music as well,” he said.

Rosen said the access to the resort facilities has allowed the company to offer conference and wedding business on site.

“We saw this as an opportunity when Delta left here three years ago,” he said. “There were a lot of hurdles we needed to get over and finally we’ve been able to do that.”

He said he, personally, liked Muskoka as a destination.

“And this is a gorgeous property,” he said. “And there is still a lot of demand for rentals as well as conference and wedding business. People still see it as a great destination.”

He said the resort was in the process of hiring five to 10 staff members to fill full- and part-time positions to start.

“The goal is to try to get more and more of the owners signing up to the rental program, which will drive more business. And the more units we have in the rental program, the bigger the groups we can accommodate,” he said. “And the bigger the groups, the more staff we will need to serve those groups.”

Those interested in submitted a job application could contact joanne@muskokagrandviewresort.com.
