We just got back from 5 nights at Errington's. We had an excellent time. The family and staff were all wonderful and made the stay very enjoyable. The fishing was great, the food was excellent. We LOVED shore lunch, and was able to do it on 2 different afternoons. The cabins were all well kept and they came and cleaned up each day for us. I can not give enough praise. Even our 5 year old had a great time! Highly recommend if you are looking for a great fishing/wilderness experience.

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 along the shore and to enjoy the quiet, the stars at night, and the call of the loons. You can cook in your cabin or go to the lodge for excellent meals. The chef cheerfully accommodated my request for a vegetarian meal. The Erringtons know the area very well and are happy to share their knowledge and experience. All in all, a great experience.

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 the day before. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The lake was beautiful and the views were wonderful in each direction. I can understand why so many people have returned there time after time. I hope we will join that group of people. To the Errington's I say Thank You for a wonderful vacation!

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 keep coming back. I highly recommend Errington's.

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 half day (or full day) of guiding. He will acquaint you with the lake and give some very valuable tips for where and how to catch fish in that lake. Larry quickly realizes the level of fishing sophistication of his charges and accommodates them. I think he would be equally good with novices and seasoned outdoors people. The food is good and the dining service is very well done. Shore lunches are not to be missed! Cabins are rustic but are comfortable and we slept well. All in all, it was a great experience with great scenery and good fishing. Quit reading this review and make reservations!

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 great outdoor setting. Moose, loons, bear are frequent sights while on the lake fishing.

If you can't relax here...you can't relax. Beautiful surrounding and excellent staff....Tasty meals,you won't be hungry. We drove to Hawks Junction and caught the train from there. The drive to Hawks Junction was spectacular,,,lots of scenic stops. the train ride was just the right amount of time and Erringtons staff meet you at the train and set off to your cabin in their pontoon boat. We splurged and arranged a fly out with Hawk air back to Hawks Junction...This vacation is tied for my all time best vacation. thanks again to all of Erringtons staff for treating us so we'll.

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.
