Located in central Canada, in Manitoba, deep in the wilderness of the boreal forest. This lodge is fly in only, it is surrounded by lakes and rivers, an abundance of wetlands and trees and the rocks of the Canadian Shield.
The setting of the lodge is very unique, situated at a former Hudson's Bay Company trading post, on a sheltered, scenic bay on the Lake. The History is evident in various parts of the lodge where hand hewed beams span the ceiling and original log cabins are scattered about. It is easy to imagine what the first explorers of North Americans saw when they arrived in the land of Cree Indians who used birch bark canoes filled with fur to trade for the white man's goods. Beaver pelts were the currency of the day and were traded for muskets, knives, axes, cooking pots and the famous Hudson Bay Company blankets.
The main lodge is a combination of several buildings. The central support beam in the kitchen is a tree rather than milled lumber. The walls here are made of log, and have stood for many years. The Main Lodge area was built entirely of logs by local craftsmen. The dining room includes a huge stone fireplace with many interesting artifacts. The log walls and log roof show construction details that very few would know how to replicate now.
A SUMPTUOUS dinner in front of the FIREPLACE, brings guests of the lodge together at the end of the day to savor, fresh and creative homemade cooking. The covered veranda provides a wonderful spot to watch the sunset over the lake and perhaps enjoy an after dinner Cuban cigar.
The Lodge offers a rustic ambience, soothed in comfort, catering to small, intimate groups, offering the guests newer sleeping accommodations ( 7 cabins - 2 per room), with private bathrooms. Wifi and a satellite phone will keep you in touch with work and home. Great care is taken to preserve the original buildings and the rustic ambience to other parts of the lodge provides an authentic experience for the guests. That special time in the evening, with a drink around the crackling fire is simply intoxicating and the only sound you will hear is the haunting cry of the loon.
