Hello and welcome

The Rod & Reel

Why do our guests return to the Rod & Reel year after year?

Is it the fishing?  Probably – but you can catch just as many fish if you stayed in a tent…

So, it must be something else – what that something else IS you might just have to come and find out for yourselves.

Nothing bad to say...

Nice little resort - owners were friendly - cabin was clean.

My family stayed here August long weekend in 2016.  This was part of a family reunion, my family owns a cottage on Long Bay and there were just too many of us.  It turns out we spent more time on the beach at the Rod and Reel than at my parents place!

First time staying at the Rod & Reel last summer.  We used to stay at White Birch Lodge but it is now closed.  I am glad we "switched" over to this resort.  They even had a fish fry on the Friday we were there.  It seems they have a lot of repeat customers, and even though it was our first year there, they (Allison and Chad) made us feel welcome.  Already booked for 2018
