My two teenage boys and I just returned from four days on AP plan at Auld Reekie Lodge. We had a ball. Fishing was fantastic. So good in fact, that my oldest son...once the most difficult kid in the world to get fishing...is now a hardcore enthusiast. Thank you Auld Reekie. Urs and Diane Brunner , owners and operators are simply superb hosts. Accomodations are spacious, relaxed, clean and comfortable. You will sleep like the dead on this peaceful lake. The food is off the charts and I dare you to clean your plate. Urs's portions are Viking sized and neither me nor my very tall teenage children were ever able to finish a dinner. Incredible. The boat and motor we were outfitted with were top notch as well. A brand spanking new, almost silent 25hp electric start Merc zipped us around without a care. Thanks to Morgan as well for his very helpful and informative guiding service and knowledge of the lake and surrounding fisheries.
I would recommend a stay at Auld Reekie in a heartbeat. Whether you want to go hardcore fishing all day or simply sit on the deck and listen to the loons, the option is yours. You'd be hardpressed to find kinder more accomodating folks than the Brunners. Just as an addendum....this was my second trip to the Lodge. Last year, mid way through our five day stay last summer, my Dad had some health issues and we had to cut our stay short. Certainly not the fault or responsibility of the Lodge, but Urs and Diane sent me a very generous gift certificate to more than make up for the lost days of our trip. That's the kind of rare hospitality and thoughtfulness that makes this place so special. Thanks once more Urs and Diane. See you next season.
