We just spent a few days here and had a great time. The water activities were easy to access ( canoe, boat...), and the staff were friendly. The rooms are new , clean, and the beds are SO comfy! The trails were fun too, nothing strenuous but still enjoyable. The boat house grill, has a great patio, and friendly staff,... More

Stayed here Thurs-Saturday. Stayed in 3rd Floor Superior Lake View room, beautiful view, and spacious room. The property has 4 pools and a beach. Spent most of our time at the beach with the kids. Was not crowded and family friendly which was a plus for us. They offer use of kayaks and canoe's and boat rentals. I didn't leverage... More

My partner and I visited Taboo based on the reputation that the resort was a luxury getaway. While the room (in the hotel portion) was modern, well appointed, very clean, had a great view of the lake, most experiences outside of the room were disappointing. We initially intended on only staying one night, the website wouldn't allow a booking of... More

Really enjoyed my visit with family. Gorgeous views and beautiful lake muskoka. Amazing!!! Had eggs Benedict at the boathouse on the property and really enjoyed myself. The grounds are well maintained. The golf course is adjacent to the property. Two swimming pools tennis and of course the lake.

Stayed here one night near the end of July. Started off by golfing at the Sands golf course. Not bad for nine holes. Stayed in a first floor lake view room. It was on the corner and had a wrap around balcony. Room and bathroom were beautiful. Boathouse was okay. Food was good. I didn't find the service bad and... More

We booked 3 nights in the "premium" 4th floor lake-facing room, only to find another couple in our room when we checked in at 11pm. The staff were able to find us a vacant room - a 2nd floor parking-lot facing room for the first night. The next day we moved ourselves into a 4th floor room that came available.... More

This was my second visit to Taboo, but the first time just for pleasure. It did not disappoint...the room was excellent, the food at the Boathouse restaurant was very good (especially the squid and the nachos), and the atmosphere very relaxing (it helped that we had awesome, hot weather. Really enjoyed the nature trails...especially the yellow one...quite a challenge and... More

We just returned from 4 nights at Taboo. We have been going here since it opened and have always loved it, but this last visit was really disappointing. I understand that they have had a fire and lost the main part of the lodge, but the hotel is running with no services, no decent dining option and management is unresponsive.... More

I tried to contact Taboo ahead of our stay to see if we could have the chef at the Boathouse make us a special dinner. Well, it took them 2 weeks to reply and finally I wasn't impressed with response. The Boathouse is over priced for what you get, it's all pub food. The service is slow, breakfast arrived cold,...

This resort used to be "the place" , not any more don't waste your money....it is too bad because it seems like Taboo has given up. My wife and I were looking forward to a nice evening of dinner and drinks and it was a huge disappointment. Even when the mosquitos came out and we decided to finish our wine... More
