By far one of the nicest resorts I've had the pleasure of attending. The warmth of the atmosphere inspires artists alike to feel creative. Tucked away on the enscarpment proves to be a very private couples getaway. A stones throw to the rock capital of the world - Bancroft. An artists haven of delights with waterfalls, historical buildings, Art galleries,...

This was my 2nd time coming here in a 2 month period, both me and my partner enjoyed being here. The fact we come up a 2nd time and somethings are added on makes us want to keep coming back, year after year, to see what has changed from one time to the next. Matt & Amanda made us feel...

My wife found this resort by chance. We decided to take a chance and stay for three nights. First off, it's a self-service resort. Kinda like staying at a friend's cottage only you don't know the friends. There is a small motel style block with king beds, a small fridge, coffeemaker, and a microwave oven. Bathroom and stand-up shower. Be...

We stayed here a few weeks ago, and it has taken me until now to calm down about the entire experience!!! I travel a lot and I am pretty easy going. I have stayed in crappy hotels along the way while driving long distance. But you get what you pay for. This resort is a rip off. I actually researched...

Footprints has great all-inclusive bonuses like mountain bikes and kayaks. We loved the private pond with the water trampoline. The host, Jen, was also very helpful and welcoming! Overall we had a great experience! 10/10

We went late in July during the week to the resort. It was a very relaxing place to stay, nice and quiet, adults only, resort. It is defiantly a place to visit before it becomes highly popular. We would defiantly go back. Town was not far away to the grocery store or restaurants. It was nice they had a communal...

We spent a week at this lovely little resort. Everyone is friendly, there are no screaming children and we happened to pick a week of beautiful sunshine to enjoy the water slide on the raft, water trampoline, kayaks, canoe and water floats. Very private. No restaurant or store on site so you bring your own food and the kitchen on...

- Was here for the August long weekend, we chose to pitch our own tents. There are rooms available, if you want to go all the way with the glamping. - The staff was very friendly and cooperative, there weren't many things they said no to, and were always around to help answer any questions or correct any problems -...

If you're looking for the typical Muskoka experience, this is not the place for you. Footprints is like fancy camping: you're outdoors, there is a lake and a fire available, you have to cook your own meals but you also get the comfort of a bed and proper bathroom. There is also a fridge available to store food and cold...

Everything about Footprints was beautiful, relaxing, quiet, and comfortable. You could choose to mingle with other guests or just be by yourselves. If you prefer a real quiet place, during the week can offer you that. Adults only makes it preferable for that quiet experience. There are many activities to take part in....or not. The communal kitchen is awesome and...
