Where is Lodge on the Point
The property is nestled on Manitou lake, a deep, crystal clear, spring fed lake approximately 420 km north of Toronto. We are situated in the Temagami mountain range which has some of the highest elevations in Ontario. Also, the area is recognized as having one of North America’s highest positive magnetic charges recognized as the “Temagami anomaly”.
For decades the property was used by various Native organizations as a private place of health and wellness; a “Healing lodge”. Manitou Lake is also part of a 6000 year old Anishinaabe canoe route, imbued with Native traditions and story.
The Lodge & Peninsula
Lodge on the Point is tucked close to the mountainsides to the north, and extends south into the lake. The property features an authentic 1945 cedar lodge with three very private cottages and 3 overflow cabins each with a private view from along the peninsula’s 1300 ft. of shoreline. Those old enough to recall the 70’s, will know this property used to be a destination for sports celebrities of the era. Now, for the first time in decades, the peninsula is open to the public again.
Accomodations For 22+ People
The property features private cottages for individual rentals or group rentals for more than 22+ people. Groups can book for full exclusive use of facilities, and we will work with you to create a one of a kind event. We have access to private chefs, security, entertainment and more.
Lodge on the Point is a spectacular backdrop for intimate weddings, large family gatherings or a stag and doe.
Excursions and activities, from guided fishing and wilderness experiences to lake explorations and water activities, on the Grand Entertainer Pontoon boat or dockside parties and bonfires can be coordinated and booked in advance.
Off Grid Experience
Off grid means there is no municipal or government provide services, such as hydro, sanitary, water, cable, fire dept, ambulance, regional police etc.. BUT that doesn’t mean we don’t have all the conveniences of a 5 star facility. We built our own solar powered grid that supplies all our cottages. We have satellite and WIFI at the main lodge and the waterfront deck for those who need to touch base with office or home.
Lodge on the Point really is a oasis in the middle of paradise. ALSO, as for the bears and wolves, because the lodge is situated on a peninsula, three sides water, and the entrance and road coming In are literally carved into sides of the Temagami mountain range, large animals instinctually will not put themselves into a place which they can not easily escape. Therefore, there has never been a report of a large animal within a km of our property since the 1940s. Beyond that, well it is the true north!
