We have been regular visitors to this lodge for well over ten years and some of us much longer. It is truly a family business as their children whom we have got... More

Our family of four was on a four day snowmobile trip (Gold Rush Tour) and Gowganda was our stop the first night. After a long day on beautiful trails we were more than ready to rest for the night. Urs and Diane (owners) welcomed us with bright smiles. We instantly felt welcome. We had two rooms booked in the lodge... More

What an amazing weekend with great trails and excellent hosts! Urs and Diane made us feel welcomed and part of there family upon arrival and made the weekend a memorable one that we will not forget. To top it off it was my wife's 50th birthday which Diane had our table decorated and made a special strawberry shortcake for us... More

As usual we had an awesome week at Auld Reekie. The cabins are very nice and the hosts are very wonderful people. We enjoyed good fishing and the sights are beautiful. We saw bear, beaver, Eagle, Loons, and many ducks. We caught smallmouth bass and northern pike. I will be coming back for sure hopefully in 2014.

Simply awesome. Urs and Diane are wonderful hosts. We fished in the mornings, hunted for bear in the afternoon. The fishing was steady, with lots of fish. The equipment was perfect-not a single problem with props or motors on the boats. The bear hunting was amazing, 3 bears were seen, 2 taken, daily delivery to the stands and pickup from... More

If you like peace and tranquility, this is the spot. Fish the back lakes and you hear nothing but the purr of your outboard. Been going for years now and look forward to every visit. Winter and summer. Love the family business atmosphere. Randy and Leanne De Block

My family went here in August of 2013 and had a fantastic time. We caught a pile of pickerel and bass in the back lakes and caught a lot of smaller ones on the main lake. The food was great and the staff are amazing. It is one family that does everything, and they do it so well. I highly... More

Auld Reekie is one of my favourite spots when travelling Northern Ontario by floatplane. It's close to the Lady Evelyn Smoothwater area. Ontario's highest peaks (Ishpatina Peak and Maple Mtn) are close by, too. Very friendly family hosts. Great food and comfortable motel type large units with sleeping- and living rooms. Boats and Canoes are available, too. Reasonable rates.

I heard about Auld Reekie from a colleague at work and decided to go with my boys and a few other men in the family. We had a fantastic time. We chose the housekeeping plan and were more than pleased with the accommodations. We expected it to be a lot more "rough" and had gotten the kids into the mindset... More

This lodge advertises itself as offering "...the finest fishing...in Northern Ontario" This is a gross exaggeration. We were there for a week at the end of June. Fishing was poor on the main lake. One back lake had good Bass but nothing else another lake that you had to haul motor, gas etc. to get in and out of wasn't... More
