Last week we had a great fishing trip to Mar Mac lodge. We have fished for walleye at many different lodges over the last 30 years, both northern Ontario and elsewhere. This was our first time at Mar Mac and one of our best trips ever. Due to COVID, we had to wait 18 months since we booked to get there, and it was worth the wait! Mar Mac lives up to its top- notch reputation. We caught a lot of good-sized walleye over the week we were there, topping out on our last day with a 30 incher. Beyond the fishing, the food is great. Given the lodge building had to remain closed to guests due to COVID, we enjoyed patio dining for breakfasts and dinners, and a couple great shore lunch fish fries with guide Aaron. We’ve had good fishing at other lodges, but what really set Mar Mac apart for us, is their service. Both before, as we navigated COVID, and while we were there, Debbie and Ken were very attentive. Emily’s service on the patio was excellent. And all of the staff are very customer service-oriented and friendly. Amazing dock service. One of our boats left their cooler of bevvies and lunch on the dock one day whey they headed out. The dock staff boated out and found us half way down the lake, to deliver our cooler to us. Thanks Mar Mac, we’ll be back!

We had the pleasure of visiting Mar Mac for our annual walleye fishing trip June 12th to the 20th. Mar Mac is a first class lodge. There is an attention to detail that we haven't experienced at other lodges. The service was excellent! Comfortable well maintained cabins and grounds. Good dining, comfortable geisler boats with excellent motors that are well suited for the lake. As other reviewers have noted the walleye fishing was very good with quality fish. We caught a number of trophy size fish as well as plenty of eaters. We had Aaron guide us the first day to show us the lake and prepare a shore lunch. COVID restrictions didn't allow us to take advantage of the main lodge but the weather cooperated and we dined 'al fresco' for most meals. We had a great time and plan to return.

If you want to catch trophy fish after trophy fish, this is the place to go. We just came back from a 4 day adventure where we caught 183 fish (Pike and Walleye), 133 of those were all over 22" and 50 of them were 25"-29.5"(Just talking walleye). Ken and Debbie run a great camp, there's great fishing guides if you need help finding the spots. We also landed 3 personal best Pike ranging from 9-10.7 lbs. If you love fishing this is the spot.

My husband and I stayed at the lodge from Thursday August 20th to Sunday the 23rd. From the moment the sea plane landed at the dock, we were spoiled by Ken his lovely wife Debbie and their daughter Emily. Our cabin was perfect, all you needed and then some. Food was very tasty and plentiful with lots of accommodation for special dietary needs. As this was my first fly in fishing experience I did not know what to expect. The cedar boats, all the gear we needed was there and waiting for us(we rode to White River in our motorcycles). The fishing was great. We had a guide day with Aaron as well as a fantastic shore lunch. It was really worry free. I definitely want to go back, the scenery was spectacular and waking up to more loons than I’ve ever seen in one place was magical! Hope you enjoy your trip as much as we did.

MarMac Lodge is definitely a destination that should be on every outdoor lovers bucket list. Ken & Deb and their staff work hard to make sure that every customer has a great experience. The accommodations (cabins) are clean, comfortable, and have full kitchens, and all the comforts of home! Bring your own groceries and cook your own meals, or opt for the American plan, where meals are provided. The meals are very delicious and satisfying. They offer fly-in or train-in options and several different length of stay choices. I have opted for the seven night option for several years. Fishing packages include the use of 18ft Giesler wooden boats, motors, fuel, and dock service. The fishing on Esnagi Lake is great! The 27 mile long lake has very healthy walleye, northern pike, whitefish, and perch. Beautiful sunsets are always enjoyed out on the lake!! Give MarMac Lodge a try... you won't be disappointed!

Just finished my second visit to Mar Mac and I hated to leave. Great fishing, great boats, great accommodations, great meals and everyone treats you well. If you like fishing GO!!! Great place for a couple, or a family get away. Esnagi Lake is a huge, beautiful lake that has so many fishing spots for Walleye and Pike. I am already thinking about planning another trip. I have used the train and have flown in on services of White River Air. While both are great, the plane ride in over the lakes and Northern Ontario landscape is the way to go. There is something about just getting away, truly away from it all, and having the pleasure of such comfortable accommodations that really makes it great. The lake has huge Walleye and Pike that make the fishing special. Thanks Debbie and Ken for being great hosts!

I have stayed at Mar Mac twice now on family fishing trips and it has delivered both times. The owner Ken is very personable and friendly, and the rest of the staff was so accommodating. I was almost embarrassed by how well they treated me! Everyone from the owner, the guide, the dock hands, the wonderful women in the back. I felt like I was a part of their family. I highly recommend spending a day on the water with Aaron, and taking advantage of the wonderful food plan. If you love fishing for walleye and The Great Outdoors, Mar Mac is the ONLY place you should be considering.

I have just returned from a four day vacation at Mar Mac Lodge with 3 other fishing buddies. Our Hosts, Debbie, Ken, Will and staff made us feel like Family and they were very friendly and accommodating. Don’t be on a diet if you do the American Plan, as Evelyn’s meals will make you wish you weren’t on that diet. Lol The entire experience was an excellent trip to the True North and Nature at its best. You will experience, Bald Eagles,Common Loons, possibly a Black Bear, Moose, and many more Ontario Wildlife. The hospitality at Mar Mac was The Best, only to be seconded to the Fishing experience, as it was exceptional. Give them a call and book today, you will never forget the Vacation at MAR MAC LODGE

My brother and I recently took our dad on this fly-in fishing trip for his 65th birthday. Everything was incredible. We even had perfect weather and the flies weren't bad at all. The flights were smooth and the dockhands were very helpful. Once arriving at the lodge we were greeted by a friendly group who handled our luggage and explained what to expect. We received a detailed map of the lake and some tips on hot spots. The food was delicious and the shore lunch kit was exceptional. Huge thanks to everyone at Mar Mac for having us.

This is a wonderful vacation, Fly in to a beautiful lake and Mar Mac sits right oin the lake. The have very well kept boats that are your taxis to the wilderness. What I enjoyed most was you can choose your level of staff attention , the first few days we used staff to guide us around , then once we felt comfortable we explored on our own. We ended the week with two bull moose , two black bears and tons of walleye. The chef cooked the moose for us for dinner and made her special recipe. I am not a reviewer but I just could not let this one go. Booking again for fall.
