Great accommodations and wonderful staff. Just wish the fishing would have been better but lodge cannot control that. Really enjoyed the Moose cabin and the dock staff were amazing. Would go again. Beautiful lake.

I purchased this trip at a charity auction. Was I ever pleasantly surprised. The Lodge is on the shore of Lake Kabetogama inside of Voyageurs National Park. It is family run. Our 1932 cabin was newly renovated and very comfortable. The entire resort was clean and well maintained. The rental boats are excellent and there are new docks. The managers... More

Like most others who are staying in the fall, I won a guided bear hunt at a fundraising auction in 2012. I drew a bear tag this year and was able to make the trip finally. The lodge manager was friendly and helpful, keeping in touch with us as we made our plans. She helped us with a late arrival... More

We bought the trip for our annual Thielen Men fishing trip at auction via Pheasants Forever and upgraded our cabin to handle an extra person. We brought our own boat and made a late decision to rent another boat due to rough water on a large body of water and too many people to fish effectively. Even though the Driftwood... More

Where to start? We planned this trip after winning the auction package through a Pennsylvania Ruffed Grouse Society banquet. At the time, we were planning a trip to Jamaica and I leaned over to my husband, Danny at the banquet and said, "I don't want to go to Jamaica. I want to go to Minnesota fishing." Thankfully, we won! I,... More

We purchased this trip which was generously donated by the owners and subsequently auctioned at our local RMEF fundraiser banquet. We paid very near to full market value for it and I have to say it was worth every penny...and more. I was very surprised to see a couple negative reviews because our experience was top notch. We were informed... More

When we first arrived the owners told us if we didn't like the fact there wasn't a dock for our boat to go back where we came from. When we called the number they had posted if we needed anything they would never answer. Our bed sheets was dirty and needed to be changed. The owners never answered or came... More

We have over 400 cabin rentals a season. Unfortunately this particular guest was upset prior to ever arriving at our resort and appears to always be that way. Mother Nature hit us hard with a severe storm that's taken out all of our dock slips. We put in a boat ramp and are working on getting floating docks installed. We... More

Hard to believe the negative reviews based upon our trip in late June-early July. Prior to arrival, we called and e-mailed various questions which were quickly and politely answered. Check-in (by Dawn) was a breeze. Our cabin was clean and everything worked. Our refrigerator wasn't quite level but was taken care of quickly after we mentioned it. We enjoyed our... More

I don't know where all this bashing is coming from. I was just up there over Memorial day weekend of this year (2014) and we had a great trip. We got the trip through Whitetails Unlimited and were a tad skeptical after a few bad reviews, and that was quickly erased when we got there. The boat we had originally... More
