Tall Tree’s is an upscale dining establishment in the heart of Muskoka located in the Town of Huntsville overlooking Hunter’s Bay. We are just 25 minutes from the west gate of Algonquin Park and 2 hours from Toronto. The restaurant is situated in a 120 year old historical Muskoka building (built by one of Huntsville’s founding Mayors) that typifies that old Muskoka charm. We have seating for 98 guests in the restaurant and up to 40 people in our timber frame Muskoka room. The restaurant sits on a 6.5-acre property of manicured gardens.
We are also very fortunate to have some of the most stunning sunsets in Muskoka. You may be in the middle of town but you feel like you're sitting in Algonquin Park and you never know what wildlife may wander by from the deer that also love the gardens to the fox and rabbits.
Tall Tree’s is also the proud recipient of the Wine Spectator and The Ontario Wine Council Award of Excellence 4 years running and most recently Vines magazine award for Ontario VQA Wines for our wine Portfolio. So please feel free to drop by for visit the next time you’re visiting our beautiful community.
