The Lodge

The Lodge is a 42'x36' log building.  Our guests gather here in the evenings in large groups to talk about the days fishing adventures.  There are couches and tables set up for card playing or story telling.  Relax on the deck in the evening to watch the stars or in the morning with your coffee to catch the sunrise.   You will find photo albums and log books dating back to the late 40's when Viking Island was built.

Eagle's Nest Cabin 

This is a handcrafted log cabin built by Art Carlson before the days of chainsaws.

In 2002, Enid Carlson and Eddie Lundstrom restored this cabin. It was taken apart log by log and moved to the top of an outcropping of granite. It was restored with new windows, a three piece bath and a deck. We are very proud of this cabin.

In 2015 Vito Tarantino updated it with a brand new kitchen and BBQ.

This cabin has 1 double bed and 1 single bed as well as a sitting area and table.  The high deck looks out on the north side of the island, away from all the other cabins.  It is ideal for a honeymoon, or anyone wanting to be away from the main group.It has a kitchen perfect for 2 to 3 people.

 

Our Two Traditional Cabins

Each cabin was carefully built of logs by Arthur Carlson from local trees. He was a master craftsman with a passion for the bush. Today each cabin is a clean and cozy retreat from the noisy, modern world. Each has a peaceful view, a wood heater and propane lights - the simple luxuries of life. Linen and towels are provided. Guests go back in time again when they visit the outhouse. Each cabin has its own, and they do fit into this simpler more relaxed way of life. There is a central shower and bath with plenty of hot water. Here on an island in a wilderness park this is a good way of life.

Surveyors' Cabin

This cabin has long been a favourite spot for guests. Mike Martin and his group book this cabin year after year. It has the best view of the lake. In the evenings, Mike sets his flashing light in the window to guide him home after dark. This cabin has 2 bedrooms and a central sitting area.
It does not have a kitchen so is used in conjunction with another cabin or for a large group that cooks in the lodge.  It does not have an indoor washroom, but the outhouse is nice and there is a central shower room.

 

Hunters' Cabin

This traditional log cabin built by Arthur Carlson is a great addition for a larger group.  There are four single beds and a sitting area with a wood heater.  There is no kitchen or bathroom in the cabin.  Guests who want a quieter night will choose to sleep here while the card game rages in the main cabin.
