We were at Taboo over the easter weekend with our two girls. All in all we had good stay and enjoyed it. However when I review a hotel I usually like to do it in an organized manner so here goes!

I have been at least 20 times for golf, skiing and relaxation. Everything is TOP NOTCH each and everytime. These guys do not miss a beat I... More

We visited the Taboo resort in winter which provides wonderful winter views, stayed for the weekend and left with mixed feelings. The property is gorgeous and the (frozen) lake views are spectacular. The staff is super friendly and goes the extra mile to make guests feel comfortable. Winter activities (snow shoeing, cross country skiing and going out on snow mobiles... More

We were at Taboo during the Easter weekend in 2014. Beautiful location, great food and service was very good but at times we felt the greetings and conversations were a bit scripted.

My husband and I just spent an amazing weekend at Taboo. We have fairly high standards, and they were almost all surpassed.

Spring was breaking Winter's iron grip. The drive was pleasant. Arriving at the the resort it stood out spectacularly jutting into the lake. The next day bright sun reflected off the the frozen lake as it slowly melted. Next week open water. The rooms, newly renovated, featured "wooden" style flooring. Large double beds. Ample places to plug in your devices.... More

A very pleasant experience much different from the usual business settings in a larger metro area. The lake was frozen but the staff was very warm and friendly. The food for a conference was excellent and varied. Meeting rooms in the Boathouse had beautiful views of the lake. The room was clean and comfortable, and though I didn't have a... More

We hadn't expected the weather to still be windy, cold and snowy in late March so weren't prepared for winter activities. So we just enjoyed being in the unit, using the gym, and walking around. I attribute this to the beautiful, comfortable, spacious, 4-bedroom condo that was so conducive to just hanging out and being together. Room service, housekeeping, and... More

TrippingAllOver, Thank you for the review, I don’t think we expected the weather to be like it has been the last couple weeks either! However, it does give the winter lovers an extended snowmobile and skiing season. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the 4 bedroom Condo and our Spa, sometimes there is nothing better than hanging out and... More
