“Great atmosphere and fishing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2010

Went up with a group of guys from work that have been going for 10+ years to the same location. Had two cabins, a rental boat, and two private boats. The family that runs the resort is very nice and helpful, pointing us in the right direction to catch some fish. Spent the majority of the week fishing within a 10-15 minute rental boat ride of the camp and had a great time. There were 8 guys fishing and we had a total of 38 fish 30" or greater in the week. A great value as well, cost as much to travel up, stay, and get home as other friends spent on just a cabin the same year. Great for families or just a group of guys.

We searched for a 'housekeeping' plan for a cabin on a lake in canada and this is what we found. I couldn't really find any reviews online for it and after reading horror stories I was a little leary. But once we got there I couldn't have been happier!!! Helliars is a family resort. Where most fishing cabins seemed to cater to groups of men fishing in the wilderness without their wives in little more than a shack, this was the complete opposite! Before we arrived we had a few questions about Canada and border crossing (as we had never been there) and Wayne (owner's son) responded and answered all our questions within a day of our emails!! When we got there, they got our fishing lisences and 'outdoors card' were taken care of immediantly. The owner Les came out and met us. Wayne took us over to our cabin and walked us through it. The cabin was clean and modern. It had full sized appliances, and all the pots, pans and kitchen gadets you need for a week. Including a strainer, a muffin pan, cookie sheets, egg beater, and a vast array of pots, skillets, cups, plates, and silverware. We had a bay window overlooking the dock and Lake of the Woods and we were right next to the falls! People were catching crappie and walleye off the dock, and boats were available to rent at a very resonable price. When they couldn't find a fishing guide for us (it was a really nice day) they had the dock guy go out with us on his day off! The cabin also, was a GREAT value. They also came to the cabin every morning and took our dirty towels and gave us clean ones, and took the garbage. They had free wireless internet in the front desk/grocery store/gift store and I guess you could pick it up in some cabins (but not ours) If you want to see wildlife, we saw tons. Within 5 minutes there was a loon calling in front of the cabin and a bald eagle flying overhead. We saw bears, a wolf, foxes, deer, herons, pelicans, and ducks. I don't fish very much at all, but even I caught a lot of walleye. In fact, while we were there a little girl in the cabin next to us caught a 17 pound muskie on 6 lbs test line while walleye fishing! It was a great family vacation. We even brought our dog with us! I can't wait to go back and would recommend this to families looking for a wonderful fishing vacation up north!
