The Beauty of North Haven Fishing Lodge




Good Monday morning to you...
I am still working on a tablescape using my new-to-me vintage China...hopefully I can post it next time...
I am loving my summer job, looking after my two oldest grandchildren.

Today I want to show you more photos of the North Haven resort where my husband spent his holidays a few weeks back.
Our youngest, Marissa, worked there this summer and she was able to invite her dad for a four day visit on a family pass. (No cost to him.)
This is the cozy living room in the cabin where my husband stayed.



The lodge and cabins...


As seen from the air, the resort sits on an island on Utik Lake.







One of the perks of being a guest is coffee delivered to your door every morning before breakfast.



Log walls give a cabin a very cozy atmosphere.






They offer a shore lunch of freshly caught pickerel, beans and other delicious foods that the guides have prepared on the shore of the lake.

Can you see why it costs several thousand dollars to go fishing at this lodge?
To see a video of it go HERE.

I did this post for my own enjoyment, I am not being paid to do it. (Not a bad idea though!)

I hope you enjoyed seeing these photos of just one of the fishing lodges on one of the 100,000 lakes that Manitoba has within it's borders.


Have a wonderful day!

Cindy, I'm glad you are enjoying your summer looking after your two grandkids but I'm sure it will be difficult to find work in September. What you're doing is a real job. I'm sure you are teaching and training your dear grandkids all summer. They will always remember that summer with their grandmother I'm sure. This fishing lodge looks very nice. I'm sure your husband enjoyed his time there with the other fishermen and just being outdoors in nature. Have a blessed week. Hugs, Pam

Cindy,

Pamela is right. What you do is a very important job. You are a Help Meet to your family.

The pictures of the lodge are gorgeous.

I just posted two pictures of my little home on my blog. I wish I had your talent for decorating.

Blessings, my dear friend.

Hugs!

Cindy
Wow, that is one gorgeous camp!
I bet it will seem lonely when the g'children head back to school. And they will miss you too!

Rhonda Sue said...

You are right, that is a beautiful camp. That must be a great place to work and to spend a vacation.

Manitoba's beauty is there for us to marvel at and enjoy...what a superb spot for relaxation and fishing for those that can get there. Children bring fun and joy to summer activities...you will all remember the summer of 2013 as you created some very special memories together!

SO cosy and pretty. Especially the bathroom all in wood.

And no, we haven't spent our holidays in Greenland or Norway.
It was Iceland.

And yes, the DO have geysers over there.
Quite big ones as it happens.

So it's not just an USA-thing.

Tonight I'm going to show on my blog another very interesting phenomenon from Iceland. If you want to learn more, feel free to read more in a few hours.

Before I forget: vintage curtains in a kitchen in a 1927 bungalow are really IT. You must be so proud.

Pat@Life At Lydias House said...

Wow! That looks like a great retreat and I'm not even a fisherman! How lucky for your husband to get to go!
Thanks for your visit and especially for your comment on my blog!

I DID love seeing this post. Those cabins look wonderful. I could live in a cabin like that. That fish dinner looks delicious.

...really, 100,000 lakes just in Manitoba? That is fascinating. I'd like to see just one. :)

How wonderful for your husband to enjoy such a lovely holiday and to have your daughter there too. Manitoba is very beautiful.
