And BAM! June is over!

Hey all!

SO just like that June is over!  What a whirlwind month!  Happy Canada Day to all our Canadian friends and Happy Independence Day to all our fiends south of the border!  Hope you all have a great long weekend!

We are going to sit back and take a breather here!  Camp is still busy […]

As we begin our sixth season here at Five Lakes Lodge, I am reminded of why I really do love this life!

I’ll be honest with you, some days I long for my old “normal” 9 to 5 day job and camping and fishing on the weekend life!  But then a week like this one […]

Spring Has Sprung!!!

By |May 4th, 2016|

OMG!  We have been busy little beavers here at Five Lakes Lodge the past month!  Ian (and his friends… as our regular laborer Ron was out of town) have been busy!

After the bathroom in Cabin 7 was gutted and redone, the boys moved on to the kitchen in there.  We have new cupboards!!  Yay! […]

In like a lion…. Out like a lion!

Ya, so my prediction of an early spring got totally shut down by Mother Nature.  I guess I jinxed us??  I don’t know if I believe it but looking at the long range forecast, we just might see some nice weather headed our way soon.  I thought by the way things were going in […]

Oh Spring!

I didn’t realize that it had been a while since posting.  We have had a very busy couple months.  Christmas came and went like a blur and on to January we went. The month started out with our wolf hunt.  We had a couple groups in with hunters and fishermen.  Everything was a success. […]

Heavy Hearted

It is with a heavy heart that I sit here and write this.

More than 10 years ago a truly amazing man and his wife came into my life.  Long before Five Lakes Lodge was a reality for Ian and I, and when we were first dating… Ian introduced me to some good friends of […]

Yay!  The snow is finally falling!  We are getting the tail end of a Colorado Clipper right now and its dropping the snow we really need!  I think at this time last year we had about 3 feet!  I can still see grass in the yard right now!  The kids will be so excited […]

Happy Holidays & All That Jazz!

Ya, ya, I know…. Its been a while.  Well it’s been busy here!

We’ve had a beautiful fall and the snow has finally started to fall and the ice has finally started to form!  Last year the bay froze over here in front of the lodge on November 19th and this year it was the […]

Fall Is In The Air

By |August 25th, 2015|

Well the last 3 days here at Five Lakes Lodge have been nothing but cold, damp, and rain…. rain… and more rain!  We actually were under a “rainfall advisory”!  So needless to say that not one boat made it out on Saturday after everyone made it in to camp.  Everyone just hunkered down in […]

Oh Summer!

By |July 31st, 2015|

Been a busy month here for us at Five Lakes Lodge.  The kids were gone to Calgary AB to visit their Aunt Britt for a week and take in the Calgary Stampede.  We had family up visiting us for 2 weeks!  And the weather has been amazing!  There was lots of fishing…. tubing and […]
