Border View

Does anyone have any experiences with this resort? Is it comparable to Ballards or Schuster's? We are heading up this winter and have yet to decide on a resort. Thanks.

Smaller operation, better looking owner.... grin.gif

I have not been to the other 2 but for the past few years I have been staying at Border View with no complaints.

Smaller operation???????? You must be thinking of a different place. Border View is average or bigger compared to the rest of the resorts size wise; plus they own a nearby pheasant hunting preserve. I stayed there about a month and half ago when the Rainy was still open, and was very impressed with the service. We had a couple meals there too, and the food was really good and reasonably proced. I'm sure you'll be happy with your stay there. Good luck, we'll look for a report.

Nice place, been there twice in 5 years time. Why? They are cordial have a clean lodge, the rooms are affordable and the service has been great! I found them before I ever found this site. Now I am hovering and looking at the other posts and looking into some of the site sponsors because I feel I need to support the businesses that help put this site on the net and keep it running. Bottom line, nicely run place but I have nothing else to compare it to in the area. Good luck and good fishing!

Thanks for the info guys! We have narrowed it down to Ballards and Border View. Two top notch resorts from the sounds of it. We are not going until early February so hopefully the fishing is still going strong.

This January will be our second year where I take my 81 year old father. The vehicles they use to get you out on the ice all float (important given other resorts have gone through the ice - (I think(?) it was last year that they lost a few people) and the guides are funny and great! They check on you all the time to make sure you are catching fish. Last year when it was slow they moved us around to keep us on fish. Also, with the meal package you order anything you want off of the menu -- my dad was partial to the ribeye's. Good food, great service, great accommodations. These guys are A++

I've stayed a Borderview a couple of times and found the resort to be on par with just about everyone else. They have a pretty good resturant that serves everything from full course meals to hamburgers and pizza. I wouldn't hesitate about staying there again.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!
