Reviewed August 11, 2012

We just returned from 3 days at the Totem Resort in Sioux Narrows Ontario & had a wonderful time. We stayed in the Hilltop Cabin & the view was beautiful~~~~very peaceful & quiet. A word of advice to others bringing your own food, it is limited to utensils to work with. There were no steak knives, cereal bowls or any kind of bowls, juice pitcher or kettle. Hot water seemed a bit limited when it came to showering. We are not fishermen but the lake was lovely to swim in. This is a pet friendly resort so we enjoyed having our Chocolate Lab with us. The beds were comfortable & the cabin a nice size. The weather was great & all in all we had a good holiday & would definitely come back.

Room Tip: For a view the Hilltop Cabin is great.

From start to finish, coming to this resort was a mistake. Took weeks and several people to nail down a price for what we wanted. That should have been a clue. On arrival we didn't get the cabin promised and made them move us. In the dining room we were almost on our own. No second cup of coffee unless you got it yourself as the server kept going missing. The dinner rotation did not follow the printed menu for dinner. With business slow I guess they refused to cook the Prime Rib. Breakfast Buffet was quite cold and parts of dinner the same. They forgot to order bait so we had to improvise on the second fishing day. Also the water went out the first night and wasn't restored until morning.

THIS COULD BE A GREAT PLACE BUT ON OUR TRIP IT JUST WASN'T.

Room Tip: Pray . . . Just Pray!

Totem at one time was a great place to have a family fishing trip. It did very well for the many years we vacationed here. Unfortunately it has transitioned to cator to big businesses, forgetting the roots from which it was founded. Too bad as it is a nice lodge but has become over priced.
