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.

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
