Where is Lodge on the Point
The property is nestled on Manitou lake, a deep, crystal clear, spring fed lake approximately 450 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. Today our lake is still a very popular waterway for many canoe groups that portage throughout the Timagami regions many lakes.
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 3 full amenities cottages and 3 partial amenities overflow cabins each with a private waterfront view from along the peninsula’s 1300 ft. of shoreline. Throughout the 40’s- 80’s the property was popular hunt and fish destination for American outdoor enthusiasts. Then in the 90’s and for 30 yrs, it was a private place of healing (Healing Lodge) used by various indigenous groups. Recently, our family has improved the property and restored / upgraded its buildings with modern conveniences, so the property is once again open to the public.
The property features 3 full amenities cottages and 3 partial amenities cabins, all private and waterfront, for individual rentals or group rentals for 16+ 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 venue for intimate weddings, large family gatherings or a stag and doe. Let us know how we can help.
Excursions and activities, from guided fishing & hunting, wilderness experiences and lake explorations can be arranged by one of the local guides.
Our Off Grid Experience Is Far More Than you Think.
Off grid means there is no municipal or tertiary governance or services, BUT that doesn’t mean we don’t have all the conveniences of a 5 star facility. We built our own solar power grid that supplies our cottages with 365/24/7 power and water. Our property has two water treatment systems recognized and approved by the Ministry Of Environment and we are fully compliant with todays stringent environmental regulations. Our drink water is cold, crystal clear spring water pumped into each cottages and filtered through our UV system,,, It’s pure H2O!
We have a land line phone, starlink satellite and WIFI at the main lodge and the waterfront deck and docks for those who need to touch base with home or check into the office. Also, we are active members of the 805 Lodges, Cottages, Camps (805LCC), involved in our year round road safety and maintenance.
Lodge on the Point is an oasis, in the middle of old growth forest with 1300 ft of crystal clear waterfront, tucked into the Timagami mountains. Nothing else compares! As for the bears, wolves and other big wildlife, because the lodge is situated on a peninsula, three sides water, and the entrance and road coming in are literally carved into the Timagami 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!
When Will We See You?
