Do you and your family love the outdoors? Do you enjoy fishing and hunting too? Then this might be the life style for you to relly get to know each other again? Ten cottages all located on the well treed shores of a pristine northern Canadian lake. No other lodges on any of our lakes. Many more lakes available to guests only. Boats and motors on main lake plus outreach lakes, plus row boats or canoes for smaller trout lakes.

Well maintained cottages are complete with all amenities including 3 or 4 piece bathrooms, full kitchen with electric range, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, dishes, pots and pans and TV. Sleeping for up to 44 guests. All bedding supplied.

American Plan with breakfast and supper in the dining room and a packaged lunch OR Housekeeping plan without meals are offered to guests. "Suppers only" also offered. All cottages are completely self contained if new owners did not wish to offer meal plans.

Dining room will service 34 guests per sitting. Full kitchen complete with enough utensils and dishes to service dining room. A 4 minute commercial dishwasher helps with turn around.

Owners accommodations are on the second floor of the lodge. Approximately 1200 square feet. Sound proofed master bedroom about 600 square feet with en suite and reading/TV addition overlooking the lake. The master bedroom is gorgeous with a private deck overlooking the lake. Two other bedrooms plus large living area are offered for new owners family.

Guests catch Walleye, Great Northern Pike, Smallmouth Bass and Lake, Brook and Rainbow trout.

The full time staff are the owner, wife and son and a cook and kitchen helper (if needed) are hired for the season. Local cleaners are employed as required. A handyman helps with upkeep and renovations most spring season.

A beautiful 6 month per year business allowing 6 months off to go south for the winter or simply enjoy the north and all it has to offer in the winter.

Snowmobiling right from the lodge to nearby groomed trails is available.

The ATV marketplace is growing much faster than snowmobiling for those that wish to follow that business. Trails near the camp are being developed now and will be very popular.

This business truly brings all of life's little pleasures with it for those that wish to live a simple yet challenging lifestyle.

You owe it to yourself and family to live a warm and loving life together.
Facilities:Approximately 7 acres with 700 feet of shoreline. 5 docks to service boats. 10 guest cottages and 2 other staff cabins Hanger for small float plane at water's edge and used for dry storage of safety gear and maintenance of marine equipment. Main workshop of 900 square feet for grounds equipment storage and maintenance. Laundry house with coin operated washer and dryer for guests and camp laundry. Fish cleaning house complete with work counters. On electric grid so no generator needed.
Competition:There are no other lodges or camping on any of my lakes. Competition is other vacation destinations in the United States and Canada. Very few offer drive in capabilities PLUS remote lakes without flying. At present, an increased Ontario market is providing most of our revenue because of the US economic downturn. Normally the US accounts for 60% to 70% of gross annual revenue.
Growth Potential:The ATV business is booming and has not been tapped yet in this region. Trails are being developed now. The winter business has not been followed for snowmobiling or cross country skiing. An easy market could be had simply by utilizing existing staff.
Training/Support:Two initial weeks by owner.
Seller Financing:This will depend on buyers equity. $350,000 down and seller will hold $200,000. Finance the balance.
Sale Reason:Wish to retire. It's been a great family experience for 21 years.
