This is one of the most beautiful places we ever been. Our cabin, was so nice, I could live in it full time! There was not one thing that the owners forgot to put in it. Had everything we needed and wanted. The cabin was so cozy, one night we had to build a fire, and they even had firewood stacked on porch!!The water is clean and pretty. We had dinner at the lodge one night, the meal was prepared by the owners. It was delicious to say the least...I had never had moose. so good!! We took our grandson for his high school graduation. He talks about it every day. The places we went in the boat were breathtaking. I couldn't stop taking pictures. My hope, is to go back soon!! We sure made some nice new friends! Thank you Lydia and Wayne.

Wayne & Lydia,

I can't begin to tell you what a great fishing trip we had this past Musky opening week. All of the things out of your control; weather, fish bite, and boat mechanicals were all outstanding. We caught our limit on Walleye every day, Wes caught a huge walleye and a trophy small mouth, and both boys caught their first muskies. The weather was perfect, and we avoided hitting any rocks with our motor (which for me is quite unusual).

But it was all the little things that were in your control that really made our trip special. The cabin was clean and comfortable. The wifi in the main lodge allowed us to video chat with my wife (mom to the boys of course). The docks are very boat friendly. The fish cleaning house is exceptional. I love the pavilion and fire pit down by the lake. And what a cool idea of putting the picnic table down in the water on the large rock. The camp cookout....Wow! Great BBQ Moose! And the boys are now demanding Poutine at home. It is a great way to bring everyone in camp together for a good time.

I owe you a very special thanks for the Cake and home made blueberry ice cream you provided for Jake's 16th birthday. I know that he will remember that birthday for the rest of his life. It was very special. Thank you so very much. I also owe a special thanks to Robbie for taking the boys to Musky Lake and getting Wes his first ever Musky. They had a blast! Please thank him again for me.

I will be contacting you to reserve a spot for next year.

As usual, our group had a great time at North Country Lodge. All the way home, Pauli couldn't stop talking about the fishing and the fun – and if you've never had the pleasure of some goofy guy raving on for fifteen hours, sometime you need to give that a try. J

Seriously, our three rookies Gerry, Brian and Devin, said numerous times how much fun they had. The cabin was better than they expected and the monster walleyes we caught were great fun. Brian and Paul together boated 15 muskies on Boot Lake, had many other strikes and too many follows to count. They had a blast. They said the work getting in and out was worth it. Even the "liquid sunshine" we got could not dampen our spirits. The camp dinner was really great. In the States, we do not routinely get roast moose with all the trimmings (that Portobello mushroom gravy was to die for!).

We want to thank you and Wayne for your hospitality. We will send you some photos soonest. If you come to the Omaha show be sure to email us!


We have been to many different places in Canada over the past 30 years. I can truthfully say that this is the only one that we have been to 5 times in a row! The fishing for walleyes and smallies was great as always and every once in a while we'd have to bring in a muskie. Your hospitality and friendship was great as always. Your time out to celebrate my Dad's (77th) birthday was also very much appreciated. We're looking forward to year #6 in 2009!!!

Thanks again for the extra day to the trip.

I wanted to thank you for the fine hospitality last week.....we had a great time.....this was my brothers first such trip, and he had never caught walleye, bass, or musky and he caught all 3.....the fishing was exceptional....we caught a number of fish the size shown in picts....sure different than when I first came up there 20-25 years ago....we used to work out tails off to get walleye that we could eat....seldom caught more than 3-4 fish a day....the fishing last week was exceptional and the quality and quantity has vastly improved in the past 6-7 years!!!!

Sure hope that you have a great season...sending our regards

You guys did a wonderful job and run a first class camp. The fishing was outstanding, and the cabins were spotless. If anyone ever calls for a reference have them call me.. Hope you have a good summer… Keep in touch.

"Wayne and Lydia, Just a little note to let you know how much we enjoyed the fishing trip, the hospitality you extended was tremendous. The cabin was very clean and comfortable. We all enjoyed the meal with the wild game. I liked both the Bear and the Moose. I think I like the Moose best. As I found in the past, the boats were clean and dependable. I guess we lucked out with the biting bugs. We did not have any to fight, a few little bites but not enough to be concerned with. Thank you again and may God bless through the year. We hope to see you again next year."
Terry, Randy ,Dusty, Brent, Michael, and Bob.

"Wayne and Lydia, Thanks for a great week! We all had a memorable week of hunting and fishing, including a couple of personal first time accomplishments.

The cabin was first class, your service was over the top and everything was more than we could have expected. Thanks for taking such great care of us!"
