What would make your New Year’s Eve truly magical? Whether you’re looking for a romantic escape or a family celebration, Deerhurst brings the wonder of the holiday season alive. First there’s the magical winter setting of Muskoka to set the stage.  Then, while couples bask in the dreamlike glow of a lavish candlelit dinner setting overlooking the lake, magic becomes a more literal experience for families delighting in a kid-friendly dinner buffet with an illusionist show. 

Choose your ideal accommodation, then reserve the party that is right for you.
