Spent 2 nights at this hidden gem on a ski-in and ski-out trip from Feb 27-March 1. Owner Gordon Gin could not have been a better host. Joe, his lovely 3-legged dog rounded out the welcoming party. The facilities are first class. We now have an annual event penciled into our agenda!

We spent two days at the Yellow Dog Lodge, and it was an absolutely fantastic time. We were warmly welcomed, and Gord, Alicia and Aaron looked after us as if we were family! The food was excellent, and fishing a spectacular experience, even if it was cold. Yellow Dog Lodge is an great place to relax and enjoy the beautiful nature. Thank you again for making this days so amazing!

WOW, can’t say enough about this beautiful lodge and the wonderful owner Gord and his terrific staff. Aaron, Alicia, Paddy, Kirstin. We were welcomed in and treated as if we were family! There were 15 of us all together, many who have never experienced a northern vacation let alone a float plane ride, which was awesome all on its own. We paddled around the lake in paddle boats, went hiking, fishing, sat by the fire, soaked in the hot tub while looking up at the northern lights! We slept so well at night in their big comfy beds with plenty of warm quilts and wood stoves to keep us warm! And to make the trip even more special for my mother n law, Gord took her and my father n law on a grand tour of the lake by boat! The smiles on their faces when they got back, said it all! The meals were terrific. The treats were delicious! They cooked us an early Thanksgiving dinner to die for, with ham, turkey and all the trimmings. Alicia even made us a wonderful cranberry sauce out of the fresh cranberries we picked that morning. Thank you Paddy, Alicia and Kirstin. You will not go hungry here! If your looking for a great experience, I highly recommend a stay at the Yellow Dog lodge, you will not be disappointed! Thank you all for making more great memories for us to share! The Mattice family!

Third time visitor...first time reviewer (sorry Gord). First time I stayed in the lodge, the next two times I was in a cabin. The beds are extremely comfortable with a nice heavy duvet to keep you warm (the cabin also has a fireplace should you go at a chilly time of year...which I didn't). The lodge is between Duncan Lake and Graham Lake which makes for breathtaking views...expecially the sunsets! Gord, Aaron, Alicia, and Pat are knowledgeable (the fishing is great and the food is delicious) and are very thoughtful. Thanks for an unforgettable time! Hope to see you next year!

Our 2 families (4 adults and 2 young boys) travelled to Yellow Dog Lodge to celebrate a birthday - we had an absolutely incredible time. Gord, Aaron, Alicia and Paddy made sure our trip was an unforgettable one! They were all very thoughtful and made sure we enjoyed our couple of days away from it all. The location is breathtaking, a wonderful lodge on Braden Davis Channel, between Duncan and Graham Lakes. We had the opportunity to fish for lake trout and northern pike on both, and our guide helped us find a big one! We also got to enjoy the outdoor hot tub and an evening around the fire. The food was excellent, and the staff even prepared a birthday surprise for us, complete with birthday hats and homemade cupcakes! Definitely above and beyond our expectations. We stayed in the main lodge, the rooms were comfortable, with the added bonus of having a half bath in each room - a nice addition in a fishing lodge in Northern Canada! I would certainly recommend Yellow Dog Lodge to other travelers!
