Decks, Walkways, Decks and More Walkways!

If you haven’t been to Loch Island in a while, you’ll be amazed at what we’ve done in the last 6 months! The entire island is now connected via boardwalks! It all started with a replacement deck on Cabin 3. The old porch was very small and needed to be upgraded. While looking at it, we decided to go big or go home! With a brand new 8′ X 16′ deck on the cabin and a connecting walkway, it was looking good! It was then we figured, “why not do them all?” and that’s what we did.

Big Upgrades at Otter Island!

This fall, we’ve been working hard at the three bedroom cabin (Big Otter) on Otter Island!  Returning guests will notice many improvements made for the 2019 season, and new guests will enjoy Big Otter’s wilderness comforts.

Fall Fishing & Hunting

Guests are often surprised to learn that Loch Island Lodge is open until mid-September (closing on September 11, 2018 this season) and we then move full dock, housekeeping, and kitchen services down to Camp Lochalsh, where you can fish on Wabatongushi Lake until the end of October.
