There is nothing like heading out on a Northwest Ontario cabin, waterfront fishing vacation during the warmer months of the year. Our beautiful Northwestern Ontario fishing lodge, Manotak Lodge, is a place you can experience the stunning landscape of the area, see the sights, enjoy the quality time of togetherness, and most importantly, get out on the open water for some of the best fishing you’ll ever do. There are quite a few notions as to why someone might pick Manotak Lodge, and we’ve compiled a few of our favorite reasons!

Our Northwest Ontario Fishing Lodge is Full Service

Northwest Ontario fishing lodges are almost everywhere you turn, so you might be wondering what separates our resort from the rest. We get it, with so many options to choose from you might not want to listen to every single reason, so our favorite reason lies in our hospitality and family-operated business. Upon arriving, your hosts, Steve and Christine Swafford will greet you just like family!  There is nothing better than receiving the most friendly hello all the way through to the, ‘see you next time,’ goodbyes. We do everything we can to help you relax, catch fish, and enjoy your vacation. You won’t have to worry about cleaning and preparing your fish for transport home as we do all the work! We also provide bed linens, bath towels, and kitchen towels, so you don’t have to pack them along. Ice and WiFi are also available at no charge. We also are one of the few fishing lodges in our area that offer the American Plan meal package. The Swaffords have their operations down so that you experience more than fishing, but a once in a lifetime trip to our neck of the woods which, coupled with the family atmosphere, will be unforgettable and leave you wanting to return soon.

A Leading 4 Star Fishing Lodge

It’s not that surprising, but our hospitality plays in how we’re a four-star lodge for fishing. Seriously, our reputation is unprecedented within our Northwest Ontario region, from the delicious food you’ll get to taste to our friendly and outgoing service, to our cozy lodge accommodations and our surrounding outdoor fishing recreation. Christine is always searching for delicious recipes to make your dining experience amazing. She and Steve are also still working to ensure sure your boat and cabin are clean and everything in top working order.  We are proud of our fantastic 2100 square foot log lodge where you can gather for meals, watch the big game on TV, or relax with a game of pool, cards, or read a book. The lodge is truly a magnificent hand-hewed log structure. We’re here to make sure you have everything you need to enjoy your time catching fish in Northwest Ontario. We promise you’ll be coming back time and time again to experience even more with every visit.

Fishing is What We Know Best

Steve has been fishing in Northwest Ontario for 47 years! He’s constantly learning new places to fish on Perrault Lake, staying current on the latest equipment available, testing new lures and rods/reels, working with our guides, and fishing as much as time will allow, to ensure you get on the trophy fish during your vacation. When you arrive at our Northwest Ontario fishing lodge, we will provide you with a lake map and help you mark hot spots and discuss techniques and tackle that work to catch fish!

The Lindner’s Angling Edge and Fishing Edge Shows filmed at Manotak Lodge in summer 2017 are something you’ll want to watch before heading to Northwest Ontario fishing.
