4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2012

Our group decided that we would "go back" to staying at a cottage instead of spending nights in an Ice bungalow. We wanted the added comfort and Chalkley's Sandy Bay operation truly fit the bill. The cottage was clean, comfortable plus we had the added advantage of satellite TV for the die hard hockey and football fans in our group. We found the owner, Jeff, very friendly and accommodating and he did put us on the fish. The huts were large, warm and bait was waiting for us when we arrived. We had a fantastic weekend.
I would recommend his operation to anyone looking for a great ice fishing experience!

Room Tip: Cottage #3 has a fireplace for those cold winter evenings

Jeff and Kim make your stay a wonderful time. The location is beautiful and the fishing is excellent. The cottages have a beautiful view of beach, the lake and northern greenery. The sunsets have to be the best ever sitting on the dock. You have to go there and experience it Miss being there!!!

Room Tip: 1 and 2 are the quietest and our fav. 6 and 7 are right on the beach and really cool, sand and beaut...
