Great, highly informative outfitters and terrific lodging. Very friendly hospitality, beautiful location at main lodge with options to explore many local rivers. Even offering beautiful lodging along the Cains River. I highly recommend Byron and folks at County Haven Lodge for your next Miramichi experience
Country Haven is a marvellous place to stay. We have stayed there a number of times - we prefer the cottages - and quality, congeniality and fly fishing expertise are as high as you can get! The owner, Byron, took the time to personally teach my wife the art of fly casting ( Phew..! Dodged that bullet!") ! Great and clean accommodations, fishing guides who know what they are doing, lots to see and do in the area (including MANY Geocache opportunities) and a great beach and seafood close by! If we cannot return to Country Haven this summer we will certainly return next year! (ps we last stayed there in 2019 but had this site allows only 2020 or 2021 dates so we chose 2020.)
I have been visiting Country Haven for approximately 15 years and that, in and of itself, sort of says all you need to know! The accommodations are very comfortable, the food is fantastic and the staff are some of the finest people you will meet along the river. The Lodge Owner, Byzie Coughlan, has been at this a long while knows what visitors expect when they come to the Miramichi, whether for Atlantic salmon fishing or just to relax for a few days, any time of the year.. Country Haven has access to a wide variety of salmon pools for Atlantic Salmon and their guides are incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and kind. The staff who work in the kitchen are super friendly and have a wonderful sense of humour too! Before coming here on my own and with my family, I used to come here when I hosted events for my own business' clients ... many who had never fly fished before. It was a great place to have people try the sport and we created countless memories at Country Haven especially for our clients who were lucky enough to hook their first Atlantic Salmon! Bottom line is that I would unreservedly recommend Country Haven to family, friends or strangers ... you just can't go wrong. I know that it can be hard to get booking sometimes (other than during Covid!) because Country Haven has so many repeat visitors from the US, UK and Europe, but Byzie will always go out of his way to fit you in if it is humanly possible! I last visited Country Haven in mid April and my wife hooked her first Atlantci Salmon! What a memory! Thanks Byzie and the entire Country Haven team for always taking good care of us when we visit!…
Country Haven is a fantastic lodge, the owner Byzie ensures everyone is taken care of, no matter what you require. The girls in the kitchen are fantastic, the food is all home cooked. The guides are excellent too and they want you to catch Atlantic salmon. The lodges are clean and well equipped. I have visited 12 years in succession and can’t recommend this lodge highly enough.
This place was fantastic! The accommodations and meals were 5 star for sure and the staff was incredible. We only fished one day and did not have any luck but not for lack of trying. We definitely would return.
