We have been coming to VBL since 2004. Fishing and accommodations are first class. We have been traveling for 40 years to various lodges in Ontario and have not found better hosts than Susanne and Gord. Their personal touch is everywhere you go from the impeccable detail in the cabins to the generous directions for catching various species of fish. There are not many places that you can go and catch 5 or 6 different species in one day. We have already booked for 2023!!!!!
Our cabin and the entire grounds are very well maintained. The setting is absolutely beautiful. Eagle lake is very large, clean, and offers amazing fishing. Our fish were cleaned for us and we brought home our limit of walleyes. And most importantly, this resort has a comfortable and friendly environment.
We were treated great from the time we arrived until we departed. The accommodations and hospitality were perfect. The cabins are well equipped, very clean and comfortable. The small details like paper towel, hand soap and dish soap were very thoughtful. Gord personally processed our fish for us quickly and professionally every time we came in. The docking area is nice and the electrical connections and fuel at the dock are very convenient. I certainly plan to return and would recommend this lodge to anyone that is looking for a well maintained and well run fishing camp. Gord and Susanne make your stay very comfortable and relaxing.
I’ve been going to VBL for almost 15 years. The summer each one of my boys turned 9, they went with me. This year? We were all able to go and my wife joined us for her first Canadian fishing trip. The boys are 19, 17, 15, 13. We had a great week. The camp in the lodge is perfect. The cabin we stayed and looked almost completely brand new and had everything we needed. The boats were great and we caught plenty of fish everyday. As always, Gord and Suzanne were great hosts…and I’ve already booked my spot for 2023!
All I can say is that Vermilion Bay Lodge is a great place to spend a week! Susanne and Gord are great hosts and they really want you to have a great time. Super clean and comfortable real log cabins. Sunday night fish fry and of course beautifully Eagle lake. I bring my 3 daughters here every year and they love coming back. You will not be disappointed! Bob Swanson
I’ve been going to Vermilion Bay Lodge for more than 20 years. Gord and Suzanne run a first class operation that provide modern clean cabins and world class fishing. This year’s trip was our first time there since 2019 due to COVID. Fishing was AMAZING and VBL was as beautiful as ever. I’ve stayed in many Ontario finishing lodges but Vermilion Bay Lodge is the only one I keep returning to year after year. You won’t be disappointed!
Spent 5 days at VBL and it was wonderful. Cabin was well equipped with everything you need. Very clean inside and out. Right on the lake, screen in porch and a deck in front of the cabin with a gas BBQ. Fishing right off the lake is good. Free access to canoe and kayak. The owners, Gord and Suzanne are very nice and great hosts, Gord will fillet your catch for you. This is a great place to get away from it all for a few days. We will definitely return to VBL.
We spent 5 days at Vermilion Bay Lodge! The moment we drove onto the property we were greeted by Gord and we were made to feel at home! Our cabin was immaculate, very clean! It was well stocked with everything we needed for our vacation. It did not have a TV/DVD player, but we brought our own! The fishing was very good on Eagle Lake. We were unable to catch bass but plenty of other fish were biting. Our kids really enjoyed the kayaking and spending time in the lodge, looking at all the unique things (also to connect to the internet). Gord and Susanne and Hugh and Bonnie were fabulous! They were so friendly and always willing to help out if we needed something. They were amazing! My husband was spoiled all week because Gord even filleted all our fish for us! We were unsure of what we should do for our holidays this year and I came across Vermilion Bay Lodge by fluke. So I emailed Gord and asked if they had space. He replied that they did have space for us to come out. We are so thankful for our time at VBL. It was beautiful, relaxing and a huge blessing to our family! We hope to return next year again! Our new favorite 'Happy Place"!…
Just spent my second year at Vermilion Bay Lodge fishing with my dad and sisters. Gord and his crew are always very friendly and helpful and do little things like VBL gear giveaways and fish contests to inject a little fun into your stay. The cabins are truly impeccably kept. You can eat off the floors. They are functional and inviting and have lots of woodsy character, as does the entire resort. My dad can’t say enough great things about this place and he is a tough customer! It’s been great hanging out at VBL as a family! Would highly recommend.
I took my two sons here for a fishing trip and we were thoroughly pleased with all aspects of our stay. The cabin was perfect with a great view of the lake. The grounds were well-kept and quiet. Gord (the owner) and his wife were very welcoming and pleasant. We hired a guide that Gord recommended and we caught over sixty Walleye in our first two days! We had a nice boat dedicated to our exclusive use during the week. I highly recommend this lodge. By-the-way...driving up from the USA is no big deal. The drive was scenic and took about four hours from the border crossing.
