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 condos had fully stocked kitchens, plenty of bathrooms and most importantly the bedding was good quality. A very comfortable stay indeed. Second. The... More

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... More

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... More
