House Rental suggestions - bringing 2 young kids

Recommended Posts


My buddy and I are thinking about taking our 2 oldest kids out for their first night out on the ice this season.  The kids are both 4 years old and both like to fish but of course they are still 4 and will do plenty of goofing around as well.  

I'm looking for suggestions on resorts that rent houses that would be well suited for 2 adults and 2 kids.  It would be nice if the houses came with tv/dvd player and electricity so that when all else fails to entertain the kids we can turn on the dumb box and let them watch a movie or something.  An indoor bathroom would be great, my daughter is one of the 2 kids and while she is well adept at roughing it without a bathroom it would just be easier if there was one in the house. 

We probably won't be able to do a lot of fishing outside of the house as neither of us have a portable big enough to accommodate all of us so unless its really warm the weekend we choose we'll probably be confined to fishing from the rental.  We don't need to catch limits of fish but it would be nice to have a realistic chance at catching a couple with the kids. 

Anyone have suggestions for a nice house that would be comfortable for us?  Probably just looking to go for one night the first time and cost isn't a huge issue.

      Thanks all. FYI I'm located on Frazer Bay on Vermilion. Give a shout out if/when you may be on the water up there. I may give the Pike River Flowage a try tomorrow or Saturday. I'll provide a report if I go. Thanks again.

      @Rick G, it's about the questionable link they left. Either something hard is going to popup. Or someone may end up with a virus. Or both!

      I sure would like to see your video Curt, but can't seem to get past the error code myself. Hope it was a good one, and always look forward to seeing them..

      Thanks Rick G that will be this springs project one thin spray on the top and bottom should be just right. Seems they all have this issue you’d think they’d do somthing about it.

      I've got a 9 ah battery ordered in addition to my 5 ah batteries.   I'm thinking I should be in better shape.  But with the ice getting pretty thick I'll be switching to my gas auger soon.

      Thanks for the replies I will be getting one today. Poseidon one thing to check is your blade sharpness Last year I thought my drill was getting weak I put new blades on and away I went.  With this open winter they tend to dull faster just an idea. I'm getting about 15 -18 holes per battery in 20 inches of ice also with same set up.

      Teach them up in the way they should go. And they will never part from it! Great video!   Mom probably loved the day off too!
