We were married at Forest Rock Sept 18th 2021! I have always had a dream of a destination wedding on an ocean by the water, this dream was quickly transformed when we saw this beautiful location on Three Mile Lake.
Both our expectations, and guest experiences were not only met but exceeded by the amazing staff at Forest Rock. Our guests ranged in ages from 5 to 91 and everywhere in between. Being extremely family oriented, we needed a place that accommodated everyone’s needs to ensure the comfort of our guests for our special day. From the first email to inquire if we could even hold a wedding there, as we would take over the entire resort from cabins to trailers and everywhere in between, we were met with care and warm embrace. I would never be able to say enough wonderful things about Frank, Fiorella and the team/staff.
From emails, phone conversations and visits to the resort, they eased my mind and made all my visions come true. And trust me, I am a hands-on bride, so I did not make it easy on them! With multiple drop in’s to show my family, and measure the grounds for tents and things, to changing the guests cabin arrangements even on the night of our arrival, and of course a million questions while planning. The Forest Rock team took it all in stride, and always with a smile.
There was a moment the day before the wedding, where I had a meltdown about the dance floor placement (once the tent people left), and Frank looked at me, and said “Bella, tell me how you want it, and we will fix it”. He and his crew got to work and in a short time it was done and exactly the way I envisioned. They assured me all weekend that everything was perfect and exactly how I had planned it.
Friday, before the wedding, the team started and managed a bonfire on the beach for all the kids where we had smores for them to enjoy. On Saturday his crew transformed the beach into a breath-taking destination for us to be married. They assisted with moving chairs after the ceremony, and set off fireworks once it was dark. Anything I didn’t think of for my guests to have a good time, the resort team thought of. This was the best wedding weekend we could have ever had. Every guest, including my 91-year-old grandmother, said what a wonderful time they had. How the staff became part of the family, and how amazing they were. The Forest Rock crew really did go above and beyond for everyone. Our friends and family enjoyed fishing, boating and the grounds, in small and large groups over the course of the weekend. The weather was perfect, as when booking Frank promised that this weekend in September always has beautiful weather. All our guests plan to visit the resort again, not only because of the beautiful surroundings, and the cozy cabins, but because of the staff, who made us all feel like part of their family!
Thank you, Frank, Fiorella, and the Forest Rock crew. Our wedding weekend was spectacular and way better than a wedding on the ocean!

Had an amazing September wedding at the Forest Rock Resort! The owners had been so wonderfully generous and helpful throughout the entire process of planning. They went above and beyond our expectations–the fantastic fireworks, enormous bonfires, all the works! They also made sure all our guests were accommodated properly, even with many of our last minute changes–we can’t thank you enough! This is a truly awesome place for anyone who’s thinking of doing a DIY event in the Muskoka!!

Forest rock was the perfect place to hold our June wedding! All of our guests, families, and the wedding party stayed at Forest Rock with us, and it was so wonderful to have everyone we loved with us all weekend once the festivities started. We held the rehearsal dinner on the beach and dock as the sun was setting, and our guests met one another, BBQ’d, and used the Resort’s fantastic amenities (kayaks, floaties, etc). The owners had games and activities set up for all the kids, and it was so nice for all the parents to get to relax and have a good time, knowing that they were in good hands and having fun. We held the ceremony on the beach, with the lake behind us, and it felt so intimate and peaceful that it barely seemed like there were 90 people there. We didn’t have to go anywhere for wedding party photos—Forest Rock is so beautiful that we took pictures at four different locations on the Resort and they came out wonderfully. Our photographer was delighted, and so were we.
After the ceremony, we moved up the hill to where we had placed the tent and tables we rented. This spot is handicapped accessible, with plenty of bathrooms for all our guests. Frank, Fiorella, Gary, and Christine are wonderful hosts and made us feel like family from the moment we set foot on the property. They were so incredibly helpful and really went above and beyond for us.—. Our guests had a fantastic time, and the party continued until the wee hours of the morning on the beach, with some midnight swimming and singing around the bonfire. Many guests decided to stay an additional day so that they could swim and relax some more. We were initially a little cautious about having a “destination wedding”—worried about inconveniencing our friends and family by asking them to come up to Muskoka—but we needn’t have worried. It’s been two years and guests still reference our Forest Rock wedding as one of the best they’ve ever been to, and they love that we introduced them to this spot—everyone wants us to organize an anniversary vacation so that we can be up here together again. So many of the things that made our wedding as special as it was are because of Frank, Fiorella, Gary, Christine, and Forest Rock. The location is perfect, the cabins are all beautiful and super comfortable, and the scenery is absolutely gorgeous! It was so great to have everyone stay at the resort with us and the facilities provided us with everything that we needed to make our wedding day perfect.

First timers at Forest Rock Resort. It was a great place for families. We were a large group with children ranging from 14 months to 18 years. There was truly something for everyone. Sand beach, fishing, water sports and lots of daily activities. It was a great location just 15 min from Port Carling shopping & restaurants. We enjoyed the hospitality of Gary, Frank and their families. So much so that we booked our group for next year before we left. We are looking forward to our next family vacation at Forest Rock!
I wanted to thank you for hosting our reunion event at Forest Rock Resort. The resort is wonderful and suited our needs exactly. The owners and staff were all super friendly and went out of their way to help out, and to make our event a success. I would highly recommend Forest Rock Resort to anyone looking for an enjoyable vacation get-away for family and friends; or as a venue for a group event like ours. We will definitely come back to Forest Rock Resort for our next reunion.

Its hard to get all the family together all at ounce on vacation with the kids and with all our grandchildren including our newborn grand children and our pets. It takes a lot of effort. But no where else better than Forest Rock. The family event every year needs no planning as it occurs naturally and everyone knows simple what to bring food beverages and games.
My sister and I have been having our family summer vacation and reunions here for over 25 years and will continue to do so from one generation to the next. The beautiful beach, night time camp fires under the stars, the spectacular fireworks and the many planned activities for grown ups and children keep everyone more than busy. Its nestled between Port Carling, Huntsville, Bracebridge and Windermere with Bala and Gravenhurst also nearby, there is always plenty of places to go including trails and golf courses.
We have been so pleased that we are even starting to have the girls weekend for thanksgiving and now having two week vacations in the summer. The owners Chris Fiorella Frank and Gary have truly transformed the place into a gem and are terrific owners and hosts. We know our grandchildren will be returning like many other families from one generation to another.
