Another location is Service Ontario, 220 Main St South (across from the Boston Pizza downtown).
Fishing Guides – Remote Lakes
Our guides are experienced and have been with us for many years. We strongly recommend using a guide when fishing Lake of the Woods. You also have your choice of fishing 8 remote lakes during your stay at no extra charge. Since these lakes are relatively small, guides are not necessary. We can transport you from the lodge to the head of the portage and pick you up the same day in time for dinner. Detailed maps of each lake are available. See page on remote lakes page for more details.
For Seniors or People with Slight Mobility Issues
Our property site has a low profile, so walking from the main dock to the lodge or cabins is relatively level ground. This makes easy walking for seniors or people with slight mobility issues to get around the lodge. In addition if you do need assistance from the dock to your cabin or lodge we can transport you with the lodge golf cart.
Mosquitoes, Black Flies, Etc.
The number one question we get from New guests is “when is the black fly season”. Fortunately we are not that far into Canada and don’t get a bad black fly season. The further North you go the worst they get. Because of all the islands consisting of rock and clay we also don’t have a bad mosquito problem either. In the spring and early summer expect mosquitoes if you’re out near dusk or portaging into our remote walk in lakes. If we have some extreme warm spells in the summer expect some deer or horse flies during those periods. We do advise that you bring a bug repellent for those minor occurrences.
