From the moment we arrived at the dock to get to the island, to the moment we got back in to our vehicle to leave, we were treated better then we thought possible. Ed and Sue are excellent people and great hosts. The staff they employ could not be better or friendlier. The guides they have for their lodge are... More

Ed and Sue run a wonderful, relaxing, fun lodge. The moment you hit the dock you feel like part of a family. Not only were our 2 dogs allowed, they were WELCOME. Food was good, accommodations were rustic, staff must be hand picked for their attitude, friendliness, and great service. Our fishing guide, Darwin, knew the river like the back... More

Crane's Lochaven is truly a diamond in the rough. What was looking like a ruined long weekend, for my fiance and I, turned out to be an absolutely amazing vacation. We stumbled onto Crane's Lochaven after spending the first night of our long weekend in a cockroach infested cabin at another resort...not exactly what we had in mind. We left... More

We booked this place last minute for a quick 2 night boys trip. Myself, my father, father in law and 4.5 yr old son. We had a great time. Caught some decent fish for the short trip we were there. We had a guide (Jerry) on the 1 full day we were there and had an awesome time fishing all... More

We have been going to see Ed and Sue at Lochaven for a few years now. They are really easy going people who have a real interest in that you have a good time.

I had been to cranes 2 times over 25 years ago. I went back in August and took 7 friends along for 7 days. Everything was great from the cabin to the food to the fishing. I gained 10 pounds in those 7 days that's how good the food was and plenty of it. You can not get better hosts... More
