Finfoot Lake Reserve Guest Review
Average Guest Rating:
out of 5

Our experience was a pleasant one with staff truly friendly and helpful. We did find, however, that the room was cold and, despite the air conditioner, some floor mats would have made a big difference. It certainly would be a lovely summer destination as it is located in a lovely area. We thoroughly enjoyed the barge cruise on the dam. Thank you.
