Had the best time at Footprints Resort THANKSGIVING WEEKEND. Fall romantic getaway . Just make sure you pack warm . Hats / Gloves /Jackets / for the fall weather elements 🍂🍂🍂 . The people who run the resort are absolutely amazing. We will be coming back forsure. BATHROOMS / CABINS WERE SO CLEAN and very warm with a heater .You can turn it up or down to the temp you like for comfortable sleeping . The hot tub was amazing it was so warm for fall weather hot tub fun . Just bring a robe with you for getting in and out and towels for your venture back to your accommodation. It was an amazing getaway. If you like the Fall Season and Fall elements . Just make sure you bring the proper fall gear with you . Had an absolute blast. 😉

This place is a gem. Truly a find. Lush grounds with beautiful landscape and ran by people that obviously care about their guests. Picturesque lake and awesome dock, nice little beach and all the amenities that you need. Don’t bring all the pots and pans and utensils that we brought, because they have it all here. Dozens of bbq’s and a beautiful outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven too! We stayed in a small cabin and it was nice enough to sleep… our next visit we are going to go with the Villa’s. The staff are all amazing and an special shout out to Ray for having the cord to charge my Bluetooth speaker… (yes, I forgot mine). Great place great time and so clean and beautiful! Can’t wait to come again next year.

Secluded gem! Rooms, grounds and amenities are very well kept, clean and plentiful. Owners are top notch people, Ray and Darrell are great all around caretakers. Go during the week if you want a quieter time, weekends can get busy and loud. But in our 2 stays nothing but nice people, good times and plenty of relaxation.

a gorgeous location. in an amazing area. lots of money spent it appears to make the place look classy,. SADLY the cabins we think are re purposed Garden sheds. and the Villas seem the same. the Casida is nothing more then an old camp trailer with a deck and some nice siding slapped on.How any of this made it through a Building inspectors standards eludes me completely I do plan to make some inquires to whatever city this falls under. but the worst part. was that we were not told that this place doubles as a Swingers resort. I think we should have been informed that where we slept, cooked and ate. was used as a s*x resort ( its not a resort. you have to cook all your own food which we knew,. however our room is not cleaned our entire stay ) the lack of room attention really made us uncomfortable. before we even discovered the Seedy secret life of Footprints aka Sandybottoms

Need rest in a safe manner, and experienced the resort as a blessing: not crowded, clean, calming deco , a variety of seating areas, informative and friendly owner Mat and staff Ray, rich choices of activities like hiking, kayaking, BBQ..., scenic places like Algonquin Park (of course), Sculpture Forest, riverside walk at Haliburton, all within reasonable driving distance. Oh, the no pets, no smoking policy is rare among resorts and most helpful. One recommendation: Ray and Mat were always around for all questions and services while we were there. The envelope in the room that asks for a tip should have their name instead of someone on it . Keep up with your wonderful service Footprints Team.

It's truly difficult to put in writing just how great this resort is. But I will try. I am not one whom is outdoorsy at all, and a total pretentious Toronto Boy, but my girlfriend and I were so impressed with this resort we had to write a review. Cleanliness of our Villa was above average. The room was spacious and exactly what we needed. The owners happened to be onsite and we met them and they are literally THE BEST in customer service. we were given a tour of the resort and explained all the amenities and the new Covid rules. We stayed only 2 nights but truly wished we stayed more as the other guests were all so nice and as an Adults only resort, this is the place we will come again to. Thank you to all the Footprints staff for an exceptional weekend!

What a cool place, run by very cool people! Footprints is like no other place I've ever visited. From the hot tub we got with our room to the cool outdoor shower, the tiki bar, great indoor lodge for hunkering down on a cooler day (distanced, of course - everyone was very respectful) to the beautiful sitting area on the dock of the lake, Footprints had everything we needed to really unplug and have a relaxing vacation. The owners are amazing, and Ray was super helpful and accommodating. Our cabin, the Garden Villa, was absolutely perfect - if you can get it, I highly recommend. There wasn't anything they hadn't thought of, and it was child free and quiet, with the right amount of (distanced) socializing to make it a perfect get away! I definitely recommend it, and we will certainly be back!

Had a great weekend feeding the chipmunks and relaxing by the water durning the day. The evening was also very chill tons of bbq and cooking spaces the indoor community kitchen and lodge is a great place to cook food, hang out, and watch tv. The grounds are very clean I didn’t see any piece of garbage on the ground it’s very well kept. The owners are very nice and provide you with everything you need to have an amazing time. I can’t wait to book here again!!

We visited Aug 23 to Aug 26th with a few other couples and had THE BEST time, such a unique, intimate resort. There were only 17 or so cabins so it wasn't nor would it be overly crowed, lots of chairs, lots of cool places to sit and chill. Ray the "caretaker" (I guess u you could call him) was so friendly hardworking and really just an awesome guy. Everything was clean and organized. The resort literally has everything you would ever need, nothing was overlooked from games to cooking stuff, blenders, pizza oven, 2 kitchens (one indoor, one outdoor) BBQ's everywhere, fridges etc. We saw each and every cabin or room they offered and they were all great. We also met and hung with some great people. I cant say enough. I was very impressed and we will be back!! Thank you so much for sharing your little piece of heaven with us. Nicole and John

This place was amazing! It has accommodations for everyone. If you like camping, you can sleep in a tent. If I have an RV, they have RV spots to book. If you don’t like any of those things they have many different types of cabins and varieties living conditions. There are 2 outdoor kitchens, one lodge with a kitchen in it. The hot tub was closed due to covid-19 which was fine with me. Although it rained a lot this weekend we had 2 beautiful days and made the most of it! Ray was super accommodating as when it rained a huge pond developed around our trailer and he brought us over a skid so we had a “deck” of sorts so we didn’t have to step down into water every time we left our trailer. The owners are super hands on and very friendly people. We will definitely back within this season! 10/10 would recommend this place!!
