Windermere House, a pillar of the Muskoka Lakes community, is on course to building on its history as a luxury destination for guests and weddings

WINDERMERE, ON, March 7, 2017 /CNW/ - Under new management and with a newly forged catering and events partnership, Windermere House, the historic Victorian-style hotel on the shores of Lake Rosseau in Muskoka, is steadfast in its mission to offer the exceptional level of quality and service it has been renowned for since 1870.

When it comes to quality time vacationing with loved ones or the very special day of one's wedding, Windermere House appreciates that its guests have high expectations and is proud to have seasoned hospitality professionals leading the management of its operations.

"It is my goal that the vision that was brought into this piece of land in the Muskoka by the pioneers will now continue by the new owners to make the WH resort a show piece that will make our community proud" says Felipe Gomes, who comes into his role as General Manager with more than 30 years of experience in the hospitality industry working for brands including Le Meridien Hotels, Starwood Hotels and Hilton. His proven track record was earned in managing numerous hotels for leading international brands. He brings to his work both a strength in envisioning the big picture when it comes to this iconic property, and the ability to be hands-on when it comes to ensuring exceptional customer service. "Weddings are the most special day of people's lives and Windermere House fully recognizes how important it is that everything go as smoothly as possible for this momentous occasion," says Gomes.

To make this special day as seamless as possible, the property has partnered with long-time catering events professionals Treeline Catering. With ten years in the business, Treeline Catering brings to the table their artisanal approach to cuisine, as well as their expertise with on-site events, having cared for Cirque Du Soleil's VIP experience and Free The Children's WeDay for much of the last decade.  Nominated for Best Caterer in Ontario by the Canadian Wedding Industry Awards, and named to many Top Ten Caterers in Toronto lists, Treeline Catering has been the supplier to many high profile Muskoka weddings, and is proud to source menu ingredients from within 150km of Windermere House.  Treeline Catering specializes in world-class food, and design-centric presentation. 

Together, under the leadership of Gomes and with the proven culinary track record of the team at Treeline, guests can rest assured that Windermere House will continue--and even surpass--the high level of exceptional service and hospitality that has made it a cherished and memorable wedding venue since 1870. "WH is not only a tourist destination in the Muskokas for over a century but is also a place where legacy memories will be made and the dreams of our clients will be executed to the last detail and will be treasured for generations" says Gomes

With more than 140 seasons in operation, Windermere House has become a beloved property to guests from around the world and locals alike and it is committed to helping create beautiful treasured memories for guests for years to come. We look forward to welcoming you soon.
