September fishing was very good this year. The guides from Border View Lodge do a very nice job of finding the fish for you. The Lodge itself was top notch. Great food and a hard working staff. Truly a fun experience.

Borderview's staff made our trip exceptional. Everyone was friendly and professional. We especially liked Jon, our fishing guide, because he knew where to find fish and was attentive to all the fisherman on his boat. We ate walleyes at shore lunch and for dinner each night but did not get tired of them. My husband and I had never been... More

We went back to Border View Resort again this year. We had 11 people this year, so we stayed in the "Great Cabin". It was wonderful! 2 full and 2 half baths, beautiful gas fireplace, and 6 bedrooms. Oh, and the fishing! First day , there were 5 of us and we went out with Darrell. The other 6 members... More

We had 11 guys and stayed in the Great Cabin. Plenty of room to relax after a long day of fishing. Modern cabin with a big TV and a gas fireplace in the main room. Service was great and everyone with BVL was pleasant. I would go back again.

I went with a group of friends up to Border View Lodge in June of 2009 and I had a blast. We stayed in the grand cabin, which was just right for the 15-20 people we had. The cabin was very nice, with a lot of room in the kitchen, living room, and bedrooms. If you have a large group... More

If you look back you can see I reviewed this resort before. The first time we had a great time, the second was full of disappointments. We booked a cabin for 5 of us this time. The cabin was ok until the 3rd day. The locking mechanism failed, so we couldn't get into the cabin. We went to the main... More

I went to Border View with my father, two brothers, and two other "guys"! I had not been fishing in 40 years!!! The service was absolutely wonderful. Foxy was our guide. He found the fish and we caught them. I have never caught fish like that! We caught our limit both days. I was the only "girl" on the boat... More

Decided to take my two boys to borderview lodge in June of 2011. I had never been to a resort that catered to fishing, nor have I ever fished the Lake of the woods.....frankly I am a terrible fisherman and rarely do it. But my boys love it. So we stay for 3 nights in the first week of June... More

From the moment we arrived we knew we picked the right place. From the Bartender and waitstaff to the Guides everyone treated us fantastic. We paid a little more than other places but got what we paid for! Food was incredible! Fishing was great and the houses are nice and clean, actually like brand new. Also on the lake were... More

My family and I have been staying at Borderview for years and always are pleased with the accommodations, staff, guides and owners. They really go out of there way to make our time with them enjoyable. Food is great. Atmosphere in bar/restaurant is a nice atmosphere I feel good about bringing my family into. Would certainly recommend Borderview.
