I took my boyfriend to Finfoot for the weekend for his birthday and it was AMAZING. All the rangers were exceptional. So many fun activities which we loved (barge cruise and segwaying were our best). Food was fantastic and the service was great! The pool is so nice too! Will def be back.

From the time we arrived to the time we left it was pure relaxation. There is opportunities to be active, but we just put our feet up and took in the quiet time. The staff were excellent. Well mannered and always making sure we were happy and up to date on the daily activities. Food was great and they go out of their way to accommodate other dietary requirements. Thank you Finfoot.

Spent the most wonderful 4 nights at Finfoot. Beautiful, clean, well serviced lodge/resort. Accommodating staff all around from reception to the rooms, to the bar, to the dining areas. Treated with a designated ranger for our entire stay who took care of us on all activities and probably boring questions and requests like a pro. The fact that there is a lot of water on the property made it extra special. Birds, incredible sunsets and the calmness of the water.
