Our group of 4 are avid fishermen who have experienced many fishing resorts/camps throughout Ontario. We have come to Mashkinonje Resort for five years running, enjoying nothing but super clean, well maintained cottages each time. When Lise and Andrew bought the place a couple years back, it only got better!
Friendly, courteous and professional they have always been a pleasure to deal with, even during a recent traumatic time in their lives during which they took great pains to ensure their customers were well taken care of. Even when fishing was slow, we found the beautiful scenery, great accommodations and warm hosts more than made up for it.

Gracious hosts Lise and Andrew made our first post-COVID family vacation simply amazing! Great accommodations. Great scenery and sunsets. Great EVERYTHING! We already booked again for next year. Will definitely be an annual ritual for our family. And surprisingly, there are a lot of things to do, even for a non-fishing family like ours. But in speaking to the people there that were fishing, the location is second to none. Would recommend 100% YES!

Book it! Book it! Book it!! You would be a fool to not book this place. Amazing view, huge chalet , big Tv, pool table , huge kitchen, beautiful washroom, great rooms. The Regan the host is fantastic and very responsive. We are still here and already sad that we are not staying longer. We should have booked it for the full month. The place is fantastic. The only advice I have is to not forget to bring a binoculars and telescope you will be dying to see the animals across the river and binoculars would have been awesome and this is definitely a stargazing spot. This is indeed a gem. I bet it is probably incredible during summer as well .

If I could give zero stars i would….bugs everywhere in the cabin, the new lodge owners were extremely disrespectful. For the amount of money you pay there are too many rules. This is not a lodge, it’s a resort. If you want to go somewhere to have fun….this is NOT the place. The beds were full of bugs and sand when we arrived, the bathroom is filthy and there is mold all over the bathtub. The owners were extremely unprofessional.

My first experience on the west arm was not disappointing.
When we arrived the last week of Aug the sky's were blue and wow the fishing is superb.my thumbs were sore from taking the hooks out of 40-50 bass catch days, 2-4 pound range.
Regan and Goldie are great host very knowledgeable and make you feel at home. Advise from Regan looking over the lake maps when I arrived made the fish catches easy. I'm a bass guy, but next stay there will be musky.
Cottages and grounds are very clean and well kept.
Can't say enough about Mashkinonje. I will be informing my fishing buddies about staying here.

Will not find a better Lodge in Canada ! The owners are fantastic! They take care of you like you are Family! Great fishing! The cabins are absolutely beautiful, all redone with pine floors, ceilings,they are what a cabin should look like! They are right on the water with stunning views!
The boat docks are all redone and look amazing,with large deck sections with chairs and umbrellas to look at the beautiful Lake! The cabins are nicely furnished with everything you need for cooking with nice grills outside to also cook on.If you want a quiet, relaxing, forget about work vacation, with owners who treat you like family! then Mashkinonje Lodge is the place for you!!

Mashkinonje Lodge is an amazing place in a perfect location with great hosts - Goldie and Regan

We arrived with a large group of 30 men for our yearly early season fishing & relaxing outing. Every person in the group commented in positive manner on accommodations and the location. Being the organiser of this year's trip I was glad to have come across this gem. We will definitely be back. Goldie and Regan are putting their hearts into this place and it really shows.

Accommodations:
- very clean cottages
- good beds with new mattresses (all linens and coverings included)
- kitchen is fully stocked with pots, utensils, fridge/stove, cleaning supplies etc
- docks are large and new with electrical hookup for charging
- good rental boats
- we occupied 6 cottages including the Main Lodge and Chalet. All cottages are in great shape. Main Lodge is very large with pool table and darts board for play time at night or when its raining (perfect hangout place)

Thank You Goldie and Regan,
Arek

Thanks for the review. A good point was made here which is to call in advance for your prefered cottages. Although all of our cottages are nice some are nicer than others. We have an array of cottages for needs and budget, but the nicest and newly renovated cottages tend to book up first and fast. Best!

Even a terribly picky customer wouldn't find a way to complain about Mashkinonje Lodge. Our family and friends stayed there twice in 2014 and can't wait to get back. You recieve a full blown vacation package, comprised of a great rennovated cottage for a decent price; oustanding quite nature & lake views; small cozy beach for your kids; challenging but most importantly worth it effective fishing; and on top of all that - a unique hospitality of Regan and Goldie, the hosts, who absolutely care about the place and guests. We came over just to try our luck and now have great friends and guaranteed place to come back for more recreation and fun. See you all there!!!

My third trip to the Mashkinonje Lodge, first two with group of fishing buddies, this time with family. Our stay our wonderful, Goldie and Regan as always very accommodating and run the place with passion which shows everywhere.
We stayed in main lodge, which has everything you need and is very clean. Kids had a great time, fishing, boating, tubing etc.
No wonder this place is booked far in advance (already booked next year). This is a great place to fish or relax. Mid week fish fry provided by the hosts was a blast.
If You're deciding if this is a place for You, don't hesitate You will Love It.
Goldie & Regan - Thank You
