My son and I spent a great week at Lost Lake Wilderness Lodge during early June 2013. Our hosts, Tony and Melissa, were extrememly accommodating and were more than hospitable from the moment we arrived until our departure.
We would definitely recommend the meal plan offered by the lodge. Meals were homemade and delicious. Breakfast was served at 8:00 am at the main lodge. It was very nice to wake up to a hot, well-prepared meal to start the day. Following breakfast, there was a wide variety of lunch options that could be packed to take with you while fishing. Coolers, drinks, and ice packs were included and made the lunch complete. My son and I took advantage of a shore-lunch during our stay. Tony provided a kit which included everything (except fish and firewood) to fully prepare and cook lunch along one of the remote lakes. It was an experience I will not soon forget. Dinners were served at 5:00 pm daily. This time during the evening was able to offer several opportunities to not only swap fishing stories, but also to share successful techniques from the afternoon. There was not one day that my son and I left the dining room wanting more. Most days we had to take our dessert back to our cabin to eat later - due to being so full.
During our seven days we fished many different lakes. The fishing (catching) was great! We landed many large smallmouths and several nice pike. Of the lakes that we fished, Bloom was our favorite. It was the most remote of the lakes and took close to an hour and a half to travel to this beautiful lake. The trip to Bloom lake was filled with adventures including; a winding channel, boat changes, wheel barrel portages, good conversation, and a moose sighting. I would definitely recommend a visit to this lake!
Our week at the lodge passed rapidly. The cabin was comfortable and already contained many items which we had packed for our trip. Toilet paper, dish soap, hand soap, soda, and cases of water could have been left at home thanks to Tony and Melissa. The satellite tv was a plus for hockey playoffs and for checking the weather. We really felt at home.
If you are looking for a getaway for you or your family I do not feel you could possibly go wrong with Lost Lake Wilderness Lodge. They will treat you well and you will also gain a few pounds (if you choose the meal plan). Take the bug spray and your sense of adventure and spend a week up north.
-Thanks Tony and Melissa!
