We really enjoyed our stay at Tappattoo;; Accommodation was satisfactory and the meals were excellent. We will consider staying there again in the future. Since it was early fall, and we are an older couple, we were there for relaxation and some dock fishing. My husband was disappointed that he didn't catch any fish. Otherwise we felt refreshed when we returned to our home in southern Ontario.
Stayed for 2 nights. Only 2 hour drive from Toronto. Lovely beach, pool and sauna. Kayaks, canoes, paddle boats for free. Cottage was well equipped with lovely lake view-deck .The staff were helpful and accommodating to all requests. Lovely trail walk not far from property. Look forward to another retreat in this lovely resort

We just got back from Grand Tappattoo. Upon arrival, it really is a majestic spot. The views are beautiful. We arrived really early and were impressed we were able to get our room, a huge bonus. Checking in was easy and quick, customer service was great. Went to our room and upon walking the halls we started to wonder what we got ourselves into. Very outdated hallways and common spaces. Lots of carpet, in light colours that shows every stain. To be honest we were a little worried walking to our room. Once arriving to our room we were pleasantly surprised. The room was beautiful. The view from the room was excellent. We went to have a glass of wine on the balcony of our room and notice there was a empty alcohol can precious guests used as an ashtray on the ground. Ashes as well. No biggie, we left the can but cleaned up the ashes so we could sit out there comfortably. We took out a canoe, which was free of charge, and had an excellent time. Went back to the room to relax before dinner after and thought it would be nice to use the fireplace in room as it was on the cool side out. Fireplace didn’t work. A little disappointing but it was okay. Went to dinner at Forest Cafe and it was great. Service was really good and the food was delicious. We have nothing but good things to say. Pool was open until 10pm so we went for a swim. Pool was nice, the area was clean and it was nice and quiet was we were the only ones there. The next morning we found that there was no hot water for us to take showers. Spent a good half hour waiting to see if hot water would kick in and it never did. My husband braved a stone cold shower. I just stuck my head under the shower head and washed my hair that way - this was probably the most disappointing part of our stay. Our overall impression was that this resort has so much potential but falls a little short in the areas that could make your stay excellent. Especially for the price. We stayed in room 82, so if you stay and have this room - at current time expect no fireplace or hot water for showers.…
Our group of 12 adults had dinner at Tapatoo. Our reservation was for 7 pm and the server took our food and drink orders at 7:10. The drinks arrived promptly but it was over an hour before our appetizers arrived. Our meals finally arrived between 8:50 and 9 pm. During this time the server did not return to our table to offer us more drinks. After the meals arrived the server did not return until we had finished eating and when we asked for our bills she went around the table and asked each person what they had ordered. We finally got out of there at about 10 pm. The mediocre food and slow service were not worth the ridiculous amount of time we had to wait and we will not be returning.
Great spot for a family. Easy water entry for kids. Have been here many times and have stayed in the cottages and the suites both are great, very clean and comfortable. Tammy is great to deal with, she goes above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your stay.
We had been looking for a resort, with a beach, that wasn't too far from home. Tappattoo fit the bill perfectly. We had a spacious room with a balcony overlooking the beach and the lake. We made good use of the pool and sauna. Staff were nice and the resort had an easy, relaxing atmosphere. The restaurant's menu is reasonably priced and the meals we had were good. Our room had a fridge and a microwave so it is possible to self cater if you wish. The only comment we would make pertains to breakfast. Unfortunately the sausages and bacon were overcooked but there were other food options. We would come back here.
We stayed for 1 week. There are lots of things to do at the resort: kayaking, swimming, fishing. There is a trail in the woods. You can make and sit at a fire. They have an indoor pool with sauna. They are all included. The restaurant is very nice, you can enjoy your meal inside or outside. I definetly recommend this resort.
We paid average $373+taxes etc/night for a few days stay. Low standard in rooms. Swimming area is lacking supervision and sometimes out of control: people flipping canoes beside swimmers and fishing in swim areas. Need to beg for room maintenance; room was in poor condition upon arrival and it was hard to get service. Most of the staff is really nice and hardworking, food is good, but the management is the problem. Heard similar stories from other guests during our stay.
Nice resort, great scenery, good services and boating activities. Nearby is cute village and active harbor. The harbor has a nice cruise boat that goes on two and three hour cruises. We took the two hour cruise and it was very enjoyable.
