  • I've been fishing the lake since 1986 and absolutely love the area and nature. From day one at Minakwa Lodge, Pat and Chantal have made my holidays even better. They are very helpful, considerate individuals, and are available when needed. I now come up a few times per year, each time with different people.

  • My favourite thing about Minakwa Lodge is that everyone is kind and friendly. I always feel welcome by Pat and Chantal. Every year, I get a shirt from Minakwa Lodge and I wear it all year long. Minakwa Lodge has an awesome beach. I love Minakwa Lodge.

  • I love Peter Pike and his friends that are waiting for me at the boat launch. I feel very peaceful at Minakwa Lodge. I like going to the store and watching the minnows. I like going to the store to buy treats from Chantal. I think Minakwa Lodge is beautiful.

  • For almost ten years, our family has docked our boat at Minakwa Lodge to access our cottage on the lake. Arriving at the lodge is always a joyous time for our family. We are always greeted with a warm welcome and a friendly smile. Our children hop out of the vehicle and sprint into the store to see Chantal as soon as they arrive. Over the years, the Lodge has made many improvements including new docks, a septic system, and store renovations; Pat and Chantal are always striving to make our experience more efficient and enjoyable. It is a blessing to have access to gas, propane, and essential groceries right at our finger tips. They have even rescued us when our boat died out in the middle of the Bay. Pat is always keen to trouble-shoot solutions to any issues that we encounter....and, lets just say that we've had a few! He has saved us a lot of headaches by referring us to his friends when we required mechanical services. We frequent the Lodge quite often during our cottage stays to enjoy many relaxing afternoons swimming and playing washer-toss at the kid-friendly beach - and often enjoying an ice cream! We appreciate that Pat and Chantal follow the regulations of their industry and always make the safety of everyone paramount! Thanks for always making us feel so welcome....we appreciate the work that you do and your friendship very much!
