Info regarding the Muskoka area

I am thinking about staying in the Minett or Muskoka region in late August. Can anyone give me some insights into the difference in these areas including golf, swimming and other things to do. I was looking at the Taboo and JW Marriott.

Minett is in Muskoka. there's not much to it ... basically a general store, marina, etc. The area is pure cottage country - ,lots of million dollar summer homes, old & new, perched on the rocky shorelines of Lake Rosseau and Joseph. There are many golf courses.

Taboo is further south east of Minett, on Lake Muskoka itself. Close to Gravenhurst - a good sized town.

Why don't you do some research on the area:

I can't speak to Taboo, but my experience with JW Marriott Rosseau was extremely negative. It's not a place that I'd return to or recommend. Quite frankly, there aren't that many good resorts in Ontario from my experience. There are some very good ones in New York state.

As for Minnett, as the other poster noted, there isn't much going on, but there is a lake. You'll find more happening in Hunstville.
