To our valued Manotak Lodge guests:
We never imagined the US/Canada border would be closed for a year and further impacting our business and your fishing vacations. While the status of the US/Canada border remains uncertain, we are positive that Manotak will return better than ever when we are able to open for our US guests. Unfortunately, we do not know when our US guests will be allowed entry to Canada. There have been no parameters announced by which the border will be allowed to open, and the government has not been forthcoming with communicating information timely.
At this point, we continue to receive announcements with the general public at 30-day intervals. Currently, the border is closed until April 21st.
Here is what we know:
1. We will do our absolute best to open just as soon as the border opens. Opening our camp will take 3-4 weeks and we will need to hire staff. An opening date will be announced by us and may not correspond to the border opening date.
2. We will be allowing you to make an alternate 2021 reservation should your current reservation be cancelled due to the continued border closure. This will be on a rolling basis as things evolve.
3. We appreciate your understanding regarding deposits. Deposits to Manotak Lodge have always been non-refundable. We decided last year, rather than having guests forfeit deposits, we would honor them for 2021.
4. COVID-19 is an unprecedented event, and no one could have predicted we would be here today, worried about our 2021 season. With the 2021 season in question, we have made the decision that IF your trip gets cancelled in 2021 due to the border closure, we will honor your deposit for 2022.
If you have questions, please contact us. We will do our best to work with you.
Our goal at Manotak is to continue to provide you with a world class fishing trip with the best multi-species fishing, boats, service, lodging, and food. We cannot stress enough how much all your continued love and support means to us. Thank you for your prayers. It means the world to us. Please pray for the world and stay safe and healthy everyone!
Steve, Christine, and Jeremiah
