I have been to Errington's twice and loved it both times. You can experience the true Canadian wild and have the comfort of a cabin to go home to at night. I don't fish but the fishermen I talked to said fishing is great, and the knowledgeable staff tell you where to catch the most fish. I prefer to kayak...

My wife and I went up to see the Northern Lights. Their calendar listed the phases of the moon so we could choose the weekend of the new moon. The staff could not have been more more friendly and helpful. Each meal was a delight. The shore lunches could not have been tastier, with fish caught either that day or...

My wife and I have been going here for the past 18 years. It's a family operated business and they are amazing! The scenery, wildlife and fishing can't be put into words, you have to go there to understand. I have traveled all through Ontario and a few other provinces, but the first time I stayed here I knew I'd...

My wife and I spent 4 days at Errington's and had a wonderful experience. The two things they really excel at is service and providing a great fishing experience. We were on the American plan and any request we had was addressed immediately and with great cheerfulness. I would highly recommend that you retain the services of Larry for a...

Have been going to Errington's Wilderness Island Resort for 8 years. Reasons to go back are great staff, excellent food, rustic clean rooms, and fishing has been exceptional for walleyes and N. Pike. Cabins are comfortable with excellent views of the lake. Good variety of menu items and a person won't go hungry. Shore lunches are fresh walleye with a...

Had another great visit to the Errington's fine establishment. This place is a well run family operation with comfortable and clean accomodations, great food in an absolutely beautiful and natural environment. On this trip caught plenty of walleye and pike (as usual), saw bears, otters, beavers, bald eagles and ospreys. We will be back again next year.

Wilderness...YES, rugged...NO, we were pampered by all the personnel that works for Abbey and Doris at Errington's Wilderness Island Resort. Meals are absolutely amazing, the view is breath taking, accommodation can be in the lodge or in a cabin. Boats are provided, and you can even reserve a fishing guide, to help you along. we will definitely be returning.

Why do you feel like you've come back home, when you've never been here? We traveled in on a float plane and landed to a welcoming party that included the loving yellow lab Nikita who seemed to say "What took you so long to get here?" as she wagged her way into our hearts. She was also there on the...
