Ice Fishing & Snowmobiling
Stay with us, in our large comfortable cottages and fish the Lake of Bays. Dwight is where two rivers join, so that's where the fish like to hang. On our own bay, you can fish in the open air -- or with your own pop-up hut, or -- when conditions permit -- rent from David -- we have a four man ice hut, on a limited availability. (we provide the shack, and the fuel for the fireplace, you must bring your own bait, tackle, licenses, etc. and we do not provide transportation out to the hut -- bring your own snowmobile, or walk out to the shack). For those in your party who prefer not to fish, we've got ski/snowshoe trails, toboggan hills, skating, fireplaces and a great place to get ready to cook the fish you bring home. Call for details.
Lake of Bays is a clear, cold body of water. It’s deepest part is 230 feet. Fish species that inhabit the lake are lake trout, smallmouth bass, whitefish, lake herring, rainbow smelt as well as many minnow species. Historically there have been some big trout caught – 20 lbs and over. Ice fishing deep with Williams spoons and big tube jigs in winter is a good bet.
Riding the RAP?
Round Algonquin Park -- it is the most popular snowmobile loop trail in the Province. Stay with us - we are just minutes off the main trail, for a quiet night. Discounts for 2 or 3 night stays. You can start from here, and leave your vehicles parked with us while you make the loop around. Take advantage of the other great trails of the Algonquin Snowmobile Club right here in our area. Single nights are available Mid-Week only. All our cottages are equipped for housekeeping -- we are close to several restaurants right on the snowmobile trails, and -- if you'd rather just spend a lazy morning before heading out, we offer the option of a Breakfast Basket so you can start the day at your own pace with bacon, toast, eggs from our free-range hens... Call us for details.
