Visited with my wife the first week in August and couldn't have enjoyed the week more than we did. What can I say-the weather was perfect, the 35' houseboat was in fine condition, scenery was over the top,and we caught some quality walleyes/crappies/smallmouth bass.Timber Bay is a well run gem and would recommend without reservation.

We have been coming to Timber Bay for over 11 years and love every trip. We've been in several different cabins, most recently in cabin#10 which was cozy, comfortable and spacious. Between biking, fishing, running, women's champaign cruise, kids club, bonfire, BBQ, volleyball and swimming and tubing on the lake, there is always something to do for everyone. My favorite...

Superbly organized operation. This is our 2nd time at this resort, first time renting their houseboats. This lake is a gem. It has all the beauty of the boundary waters (Canadian Shield type lake), yet you can motor boat all over its largely undeveloped shoreline. The houseboat route allows you to be smacked down in the middle of nowhere, with... More

We have been to timber bay twice. We have stayed in two different cabins and have rented boats. The cabins are clean and well maintained, as are the boats. The staff is friendly and the owners are great people. A good fishing lake and 2 miles from a grocery store. There is dish tv in all the cabins. There is... More

It's hard to fit all things amazing Timber Bay Lodge into a small paragraph. My family has been visiting TBL for 25+ years and counting. From amazing fishing, breathtaking sunsets reflected onto Birch Lake, water skiing, swimming in a lake underneath the summer sun, taking hikes in the dense pines, starry nights, a cozy cabin, to sitting on the deck...

We just spent 2 weeks at Timber Bay.... as we have for the last 16 yrs. Our children were 8 and 11 at the first visit, and now, as adults, they still look forward to joining us each summer. The resort is impeccably run by Ron and Beth Rykken. We 've noticed that numerous other families return yearly, which clearly... More

Rented a 30' houseboat. Was a great time. Many islands to explore and a variety of wildlife. Plenty of places to dockbthe boat. Bed was surprising comfortable. Recommend renting a small boat to fish. We will definitely return.

Rented the 35 foot houseboat for a whole week at the end of June. Our two 8 year-olds were on cloud nine the whole time. Beautiful sunsets, fish so big I doubted the species (who knew smallmouths could get over 6 lbs!), loons calling at night. Gorgeous sand bottom coves to swim and fly down the slide. It does not...

This is the third summer we have vacationed at Timber Bay Lodge and Houseboats. The first two summers we rented a houseboat and had a fantastic time on the lake. This year we rented the Bear Trap- a luxurious cabin with 6 bedrooms and a loft for a family get together. The cabin was absolutely fabulous- neat and clean with... More

We rented a houseboat for the weekend package and it was GREAT! When we arrived the people at the main lodge checked us in and were very friendly and answered any questions that we had. We then went down to the marina and an employee helped us load our things, and made sure we had everything that we might need.... More
