My husband and I just spent an amazing weekend at Taboo. We have fairly high standards, and they were almost all surpassed. The lake views from the rooms are second-to-none, everything is modern and gleaming, the beds are so comfortable, the food in the Elements dining room was truly spectacular, the service was above and beyond, and we had the...

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

Thanks Crctrip for including Taboo Muskoka in your many helpful TripAdvisor reviews, and for calling our setting "incredible." Glad you enjoyed our sleek, modern accommodations. The final phase of Taboo's guestrooms will be completely renovated for summer 2014. And we've reminded Housekeeping about showerhead placement. Our new director of food & beverage and two new chefs de cuisine literally just... 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

Hi Ripsrocker R, thanks very much for taking time out from business travel to post a Taboo Muskoka review. For readers who aren't familiar, Taboo is 90 minutes north of Toronto, on one easy highway, at the gateway to one of Ontario's most popular recreation destinations. Many of our accommodations do offer spectacular Lake Muskoka views, although getaway guests tend... 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

This was our second visit to Taboo, and it was fantastic. I would highly recommend the culinary theatre, and a visit to the spa is a must. I love the trails on the resort grounds. They can easily fill up a day with hiking, or snow shoeing / cross country skiing depending on the season. The staff are exceptionally friendly.

But your comment about our "exceptionally friendly" staff is the most important to us. To help you plan your next visit, we're extending our trails and outdoor adventure options this summer too.

This resort is incredible. We had a friend have her wedding outside on an elevated dock it was stunning! The entire resort feels welcoming and clean.

sewey_5 So glad you enjoyed your friend's Fireside patio wedding. And love that you consider Taboo Muskoka "a mini vacation escape." For best rates on Spa Taboo packages and monthly specials, look at times like April-May and November too. Outside of peak summer you can definitely save by checking our website and/ or signing up for our e-club. Appreciate your... More

Since we discovered Taboo several years ago, we have made at least one trip per year with the kids. Takes about 61/2 - 8 hours to get there, so it isn't a destination that I can go for a quick weekend. They had a massive indoor pool that my kids loved in addition to a games area and the kayaks....

Our stay at Taboo in late Aug 2013 exceeded our expectations by a mile. We particularly liked the boathouse restaurant...very family friendly environment. If you stay at Taboo, make sure you take an evening dinner cruise on Lake Muskoka. There were no "cons" to staying at Taboo...period!!
