Quality Accommodations at Affordable Prices





Nicks Retreat is only minutes away from water. The closest lakes to the property are Bark Lake (5 minutes away) and Cross Lake (2 minutes away). Both lakes offer free boat launches. The fish that can be found in the area are Large and Small Bass, Northern Pike, Muskie, Walleye, Lake Trout, Yellow Perch, Crappie, Sunfish, Catfish, Brook Trout, Splake, Brown Trout, White Fish and Rainbow Trout.

If you like some adventure and want to get into some of the remote lakes, you can take your ATV, snowmobile or portage into some of the smaller lakes in the area. All you need to bring is a small motor to put onto the boats that are left on the shore and your all set for a day in paradise with the whole lake to yourself.

The MNR (Ministry of Natural Resources) stock some of the smaller lakes so there are always plenty of fish.

Ice fishing can also be done on these lakes.

We dont offer any guided fishing trips but can point you in the right direction.

On December 1st I encountered the buck above. The arrow hit a small tree branch that i couldnt see at 20 yards due to the fading light and deflected it. He will be bigger next year.
