Guest Reviews

We found this place after searchig so hard to find somewhere that was pet friendly with dogs over 40lbs (yes… lol ….thats a thing) This is our 3rd year booking here – we Book the Muskoka Cabin – it’s way more cabin then we need but it has a full kitchen, a view of the lake AND the fenced dog park right across from us.
The 2 bathrooms is a plus as well, especially if the kids come up for a few days during our stay.
Love the fireplace, how clean everything is, the check in is super easy, honestly….not a bad thing to say about this place.
Oooh….also….there is a fantastic restaurant across the street too 😉

A nice, quiet, economical, cottage resort situated close to all of Muskoka’s attractions and outdoor activities including, the Limberlost forest, Arrowhead Park, Algonquin Park and Ragged Falls. The property has a large beach area and provides access to canoes, kayaks, stand-up boards, tennis courts and more. An added bonus is that it is located just 10 minutes from downtown Huntsville. I’ve enjoyed visiting Tally Ho with family and friends now for over 10 years!
Peter H September 2023

Very cozy place! Splendid nature, exceptional views. Ideal for a weekend getaway. What’s more, I think, it’s marvellous here in any season. Liked very much the fireplace – super cozy and warm! Everything was clean. Smooth check-in/check out.

LOVE having my coffee on the deck in the morning.

Beautiful location, nice cottage with all kinds of amenities. But most important and beyond our expectations: the beds were fantastic! Very comfortable and spacious; we slept like babies!

Ellen, NL

We very much enjoyed our stay. The property is well cared for and the service was timely and helpful. The bed was comfortable, the cottage was clean, and we enjoyed the fact that we qualified for and were given upgraded accommodation. We would go again.

We stayed at the Beaches cottage in June. It was absolutely beautiful and spotless! The view from our cottage was gorgeous and the breezes off of the lake were amazing. We did not want to leave. The king-size bed was so comfortable that we bought a new mattress when we got home that will hopefully be the same. This was our third time staying at Tally Ho and we plan to return for holidays a couple of times every year.

Christine C

We stayed at the paradise cabin. It is very close to the lake. The view is very relaxing. If you need to get away from the city for a few days. I recommend Tally Ho Inn. We will come back again and stay in a different cabin. It was a good experience.
