Were to Stay?

8 posts in this topic

I am looking for a hotel or resort to stay at during Dec.27-Dec.29 but realize most places are booked already. So I am wondering if anybody knows of a place with reservations still open.

You might want to give a call to the Lake Road Lodge Motel. they are on 172 just before Wheelers Point. They might be able to help you out. Close to the lake. Otherwise my only suggestion is to click on the resort locator above, go to Lake of Woods on the right side menu and make some calls. Hope you find a spot. Good luck, hang on. Bill

I made resevations at the Lakeroad Lodge 2 weeks ago for the 28th and 29th and they were filled up after my reservations though. I would call around to all the resorts to see what you can find. There are alot more reasonable, more professional, and more curtious places to stay in the area. We were desperate.

Minaki,

You could call The Royal Dutchman. I've never stayed there but I've talked to them about accomodations a couple times and they have always been very professional to deal with. A lot of other folks on the forum also have spoken well of them. If you are extremely desperate, the Baudette Motel might have room although there are better people to deal with up there. Have you called American Inn and Walleye Inn. It might be a little late but you never know. I often stay at a motel in town and then just rent a day house with transportation on and off the ice from one of the resorts.We are staying at Walleye Inn the 26th through 29th and fishing with Ballards the 27th and 28th. Good luck.

Eastwind - Are we still on for a cold one on the 28th? We're bringing all of our gear to do some sunrise/sunset action too, so we'll be staying at Morris Point and using their houses during the day and "pork and bean" fishing the low light hours. cool.gif

Gonzo,

Oh yeah. I plan to call you on your cell whem we get off of the ice on the 28th. I may touch base with you sooner to see how the fishing is where you guys are. I will have my phone with me on the ice. Will you have yours? As far as bringing portables along for night fishing, won't you catch just as much if you just stay in the lodge and concentrate on heavy consumption?? tongue.gif

I'll have my cell. BTW We'll have radios too, and may be able to connect that way if your group has some.

We're not really doing night fishing, more like twilight AM and PM. Of course, the "limit" we catch in the lodge after dark will determine how early AM is! crazy.gif

That "limit" Like so many others in my time, has also been lowered, and I can't blame the DNR for that!
