Decided to take my two boys to borderview lodge in June of 2011. I had never been to a resort that catered to fishing, nor have I ever fished the Lake of the woods.....frankly I am a terrible fisherman and rarely do it. But my boys love it. So we stay for 3 nights in the first week of June 2011 and booked a 2 bedroom cabin and 2 9hr charters. The cabin is basic which was fine. The guide/captain of the charter was outstanding...Wish I could remember his name, but he did an outstanding job. We always caught our limit by noon. He knew each day where the fish would be. We had a great time.....I have no negatives about this place.....as a matter of fact, I will be there next week for a week this time. June 18-23rd 2012.......hope the walleyes are biting as good as they were in 2011!
