Like the sign says "at the end of this terrible road is a wonderful place!"... found this place in Oct 2017, when looking for a surprise Anniversary getaway for my wife and I, and Kari and Dallas did a terrific job of accommodating us. Had such a great time that we came back again this year, which is the first time we've ever gone to the same cabin or resort twice. And we'll keep coming back! Did a little fishing, hiking, relaxing, and cooking special meals in the cabin, enjoying the fireplace and the view. Can definitely find the space to think... there's a very positive atmosphere here. Had the great fortune to meet the original "Tinker" who started it all. Like other reviewers have noted- the family that runs this is special, it's a neat place with a great story, and it's just fun to go there. Makes me think i don't want too many people to know about it... it's that cool.

A couple years back, we stayed as a group for a work event. Did the fly-in package and shore lunch. Had the breakfast dinner package as well. Great cabins, food, service and atmosphere. Fishing was the stuff you talk about for years! If you are looking for the true up-north experience, you will never go wrong here! BTW Date entered is not correct, but is as far back as I could select. We were there in July 2012. Thanks again

We have a group of friends (23 adults and 4 kids and 7 under 3 ) that wanted to stay at a resort in Canada. We were lucky to find Tinkers place. We rented all 6 cabins. They were clean and well stocked, with toasters, coffee makers and ice all ready in the freezer. If we needed anything like a griddle or crockpot, we just asked! They provide drinking water but we brought our own for convenience. Most cabins had all twin beds and we brought Pack and Plays for the babies. So each adult had a bed with towels and washcloths. We all were thankful for showers in each cabin and we brought our own blowup little bathtub for the babies. We loved the beach area and the beautiful views from the decks. Each deck had a grill and at least two chairs! This place had it all. A beautiful outdoor pavilion area that we used each night to gather as a group and make our own meals. They provide meals too if you want. Their Friday night fish fry was a highlight. The beach had kayaks, paddle board, paddle boat, and a nice sand area for the little ones. Our group enjoyed catching fish right off the docks. We would order our bait the night before and it would be delivered to our dock that morning. So convenient! The docks are large and protected. We could see our boat from our deck. Finally it is the people who make this place great! It is family owned and they work hard to make our vacation a special trip. Thank you for sharing your wonderful place with us. The Canada Group 2018

What makes this place outstanding is the owners. Very friendly and helpful in all categories you would want in a resort. Fishing was great. A sea plane could take you to a isolated lake and include a nice shore lunch.

When I read reviews, unless there are quite a few, I tend to disregard. So I am adding this review just agree wholeheartedly with the other who have given it 5 stars. My wife and I are not fisherpeople. But we really wanted a quiet Ontario lakefront cabin with a canoe and rocky forested shores. I grew up in Canada and spent at least part of every summer in the north woods on a lake. After 40 years in California, I have begun to crave that kind of setting for a vacation unwind. Now this place attracts mostly fishermen, I understand. And that is fine ... I hear the fishing is superb. But it also gave us just what we wanted. Our cabin is about 12 meters from the water. It has beds for six people. GOOD mattresses. The site is far enough off the lightly travelled local road that it is very quiet. Kari and her husband grew up in the area. Kari's family built the place up cabin by cabin over 30+ years. It is not luxurious, but I would not call it rustic, either. Kari a warm and attentive host but in no way intrusive. I should say that they also run a fly in fishing service to more remote sites. But here at Tinker's, it was drive in and park. My wife and I are already looking to return here when we can. Are you getting that we really like the place and the way the people here handle it and themselves?
