I have been coming to Chaunigan for over 20 years. The wilderness mountain views, wildlife, cozy log cabins, the scent of the pine and spruce forest are all part of the experience. We fly-fish and often catch and release over 50 wild rainbow trout fish each during our stay. We keep a few of the 3.5 pound plus fish to eat. The lodge's manager is a great host and makes us feel very welcome.
Our little boy had an amazing time during our one-week wilderness family holiday. Our lake front chalet had a beautiful view. The lodge manager is a fantastic host; you can follow him into the forest for a fabulous walk into the wild. Thanks, so much for making our stay so enjoyable and for making your famous ribs dinner. If you're looking for a peaceful place to recharge this is it.
Amazing lake with hands down some of the very best rainbow trout fishing in the world! Great amenities, hiking and wildlife viewing. The lodge manager is a one of a kind character with stories that will keep you all entertained for your entire stay here. I highly recommend this place. Chaunigan
