We stayed there last week and absolutely loved every minute of it. The friendly lodge managers were very helpful and the two older gentlemen running it are hilarious and very knowledgeable! It has a very authentic feel being here. The cottages are clean, comfortable and self-sufficient for a long stay. Grocery stores are just a 10-15 minute drive away. We loved the campfires feel at each cottage. My dog loved swimming at the beach. Lots of great parks and places to explore nearby and if you're into fishing, you've hit the jackpot! We book cottages every year and I'm super thrilled to have discovered this Canadian treasure which has been one of my favorites in over a decade. We will be back for sure.

We stayed at Totem Point lodge for 3 days this week with 5 friends age 21-24. The new owners of this lodge were not friendly with us right from the beginning. They first told us prices were $65 a day per person over the three days and we paid $400 deposit before arriving and were told to pay the rest when we leave. We were very respectful following rules but the owners clearly wanted nothing to do with us. They made us pay the full amount the next morning which was actually $210 and tried to tack on a $100 cleaning fee for a spilt beer in the game room which wasn’t even our cabin. They had just assumed and put it on our bill. They then closed the game room completely for the entirety of our stay. All because someone else spilt beer. This was only the beginning, they then brought us firewood the next morning and left it on our lawn to which I asked if it was for us and they said yes. Not telling us it’s $20 every time we want wood. We never asked for it and they charged us anyway, reminding us every time we saw them to pay it. The first night we stayed there the owner walked up to our cabin and told us to keep it to a hush while we were playing music quietly talking. This was at 8:30pm. None of the other guests were being treated like we were and it was clear they didn’t want us there. If you’re going to run a business like this you need to expect you’ll have different types of guests. We were nothing but respectful and never got a complaint from other guests. If you’re a young adult I would suggest not staying here. This will be our last time going there which is a shame because the last owners were so friendly and ran the place perfectly.

First time visiting the resort, was super impressed with my time spent there. The owner's and staff where awesome, super courteous, friendly and all around amazing friends. Everything was what you would expect and more for an northern escape. Will definitely return, and recommend anyone looking for a great fishing trip or getaway to stay at totem point.

Everything about our stay and the lodge itself was amazing. Despite being a drive from the GTA, it was definitely worth it - You're surrounded by endless nature. The cabin itself was spotless, and had all utensils needed to prepare your own meals. Keep in mind, cell phone coverage and WiFi speeds are limited, so be prepared be disconnected and enjoy your surroundings. Thank you Lily & Richard!
