Please keep an eye on this page if you have a reservation with us, we plan to change things as the Governor lets up on us to be able to have the lodge open etc. As things change for us we will post our plans on here for everyone to keep up to date. We are sanitizing and doing everything we can to make sure your stay with us is safe. Thank you for sticking with us during these abnormal circumstances, we are so glad we can be open for our guests to get out of the house and FISH! See you soon!!!
Check-in- for check in’s we are asking everyone to go straight to their cabins. Upon arriving to your cabin there will be a paper with phone numbers and other procedures on it in the cabin. We ask that ONE person from each cabin text the designated number on the sheet with the following info- Name & cabin # . After one person from the cabin texts the number in the cabin you will receive a photo of our lake map of our plowed roads, if you need a paper copy brought down to the cabin just let us know. If you have a house rented the map will show you how to arrive there and you will find out which house you’re in each evening by texting/calling us. Our phone numbers will be listed in the cabins so you will be able to reach us if the lodge is closed and you are in need of something.
**The extra cleaning time will push check in time to 3PM. *** We know a lot of winter guests arrive early in the day, please plan ahead for not being able to get into the cabin until 3pm. You can get into the cabin earlier if you have spoken to us and we have given the clear that your cabin is already clean prior to your arrival. If you are arriving on a cleaning day that is the case where you cannot check into your cabin until 3pm.**
Check-out- For check out we will have the lodge open from 5PM-8PM the night before your departure day. If your fish aren’t done getting cleaned the night before departure date we will be doing some check outs in the AM as well but if you’re able to we would like to do some check outs in the evening. One person from each cabin can gather all guests’ payments, and that one person can come into the lodge with all cash or card payments all receipts will be sent back with that person. We can do card payments over the phone as well if needed.
Cabins- As we did this summer, all the cabins are cleaned and then all surfaces sanitized. The only thing we removed from the cabins are the blankets. All cabins have SHEETS on the beds, but no blankets so you will need to bring your own blankets. Bath and kitchen towels are still in the cabins as usual as we sanitize them in-between each use per our normal routine.
Fishing- We are asking everyone to get their fishing licenses ahead of time, we have posted the direct link to enter your info for buying licenses online. The link for the MN DNR license sale is attached below just click it and it will bring you to the area to start entering your information!
Bait- We will have the lodge basement open for bait purchase from 7AM-9AM. Fish cleaning we will still be doing as well, we just ask that as few as possible come into the basement at a time especially if other cabins are in there. If you’re wanting your fish cleaned by us, your fish need to be in the basement no later than 7PM, we do not clean frozen fish.
Check in- 3PM- bring blankets and fishing license. ONE PERSON send a text when you’re in the cabin with your NAME & CABIN # .
Bait- 7AM-9AM pick up hours in basement doors.-If going fishing on check in day, we will be available to get bait upon arrival.
Check out- 5PM-8PM night before departure date, one person per cabin comes into the lodge with all guests payments if paying with cash.
