We invite you to experience a much needed quiet wilderness vacation, hearing the sound of loons while sitting in the screened porch enjoying your a cup of coffee while watching the sunrise first thing in the morning. Listening to the sound of birds and the wind blowing in the leaves of the trees. Admiring a family of ducks swimming in front of the dock and a beaver pulling a branch across the bay. Hearing the splashes of fish coming out of the water. That is all the noise you will hear during your stay at “The Mini Lodge”. A vacation to just admire nature. No sounds of cell phone…no sounds of sirens…no sounds of vehicles…..
Experience some of the finest fishing to be found in Northern Ontario. Located 23 mi (37 km) East of Chapleau Ontario, on Ivanhoe River/Lake in the Ivanhoe Lake Provincial Park, is a pristine fly-in only river/lake. At the location of the outpost…the river/lake is 6 mi (9.1 km) long river/lake, with an average of 3/4 mi wide, where there are many bays and islands offering excellent fishing for Walleye, Great Northern Pike and Small Mouth Bass. Some fishermen have caught White Fish. In total, the Ivanhoe River is 274 mi (170 km) long. At the North end the river joins the Ivanhoe Lake which is 16 mi (25 km) long .
There is a Portage at the South side of the outpost. Enjoy a 20 minutes walk/hike on a well maintained trail at the South End of the Ivanhoe River. A boat and outboard motor are available for you to use at anytime. Here you can fish another 4 mi of water and catch big Northern Pike and Walleye.
“The Mini Lodge” is located on Ivanhoe River/Lake and offers many advantages to our guests. Not only are many excellent fishing areas close by – but one of the best fishing is to “Catch Them Right Off the Dock.” Guests have caught and released many times their limit right off the dock. The fishing is that good.
