My wife and I used to go up to Taboo at least once a summer as an extended weekend getaway. We continued to support Taboo over the larger chains like the Mariott, even after the fire. Last summer however, while we were staying there, my wife woke at 3am in the morning, telling me someone had come into the room....

Hi Alfred L, Firstly, I would like to apologize once again on behalf of our Night Audit team for accidentally entering your room last year. I spoke with the staff member involved - he was very apologetic and explained he meant to enter the room beside yours at the request of a guest to make a towel delivery. My coworker...

I've been to Taboo before their catastrophic fire, and it was excellent. Rooms were fabulous, service A+ and dining delicious. We visit Muskoka to see the stars at Torrance Barrens, and often stayed the night at Taboo. Since the fire I've stayed once, and it was awful. I didn't even have the heart to complain at check-out because I can't...

This summer was the first time that we discovered Taboo. It is theeeeee best hotel in Muskoka. We love the rooms with the view of lake. It is quiet. Beautiful. Modern. Can't wait to return next summer.

The resort was well maintained, clean and modernly furnished. Stayed for two nights and didn't receive room cleaning but aside from that no complaints. The fitness room was awesome and featured quite a bit of equipment for hotel standards

We spent two nights and three days at Taboo and it has definitely earned its rating! The rooms are very modern complete with refrigerator, microwave and rain shower and an amazing balcony with beautiful views of Lake Muskoka. Choose the lakefront view on 3rd or 4th floor and it will not disappoint. The Boathouse Restaurant has a limited menu but...

For a special celebration we paid extra for lake view and 4th floor ( top floor). The room was huge with a sleek executive look. Fireplace, sofa, fridge and coffee maker and large storage closets. For a place of this quality and class, low quality towels and one ply bathroom tissue seem like cost cutting. A breakfast was not included...
