Auld Reekie Lodge
Reviewed June 2, 2011

You know the place is good when the locals stay there, the road crews stay there, the loggers stay there

Been going to Auld Reekie Lodge since 1994 with my brothers. We've been through three owners. Each one of them was good but the current owners, Urs and Diane, are the best. The food is very good, well prepared, well proportioned. The serve you like family and at your pace. The lodges are a treat. Well cared for, well designed. Mattresses are comfortable. The wildlife around the area is varied. We've seen everything from moose, bears, skunks, beavers, eagles, lynx and chipmunks galore. The fishing is good - not the best. The best part, however, is that there are many lakes nearby. Each is know for a different species.

Room Tip: Just tell Diane what you want.

Thank you for the wonderful words. We must say that we could not have done it without the stepping stones of Doug & Cathie White. They built Auld Reekie Lodge and worked very hard to acheive a good reputation. With this base, we have been able to bring Auld Reekie to what it is today. We love being here and very much enjoy our guests. We are always looking forward to their return. Thank you again.

We traveled up to Auld Reekie this past Valentine's weekend with a large group of sleds and had a great time. The trails were in great shape, the scenery was beautiful and at the end waited Auld Reekie. This was our first time and won't be our last. The setting was awesome, the rooms were warm and inviting, the food and hospitality unbeatable. Urs and Diane (and their children) make a home away from home for all travelers. We're booked for next year.
