I recently returned from a 5-day “all inclusive” fishing trip to Auld Reekie Lodge – I cannot wait to go back again! Urs and Diane Brunner are two of the most friendly, genuine people I have ever met. Their primary mission is to make you feel welcome, and to ensure you are completely comfortable. Within minutes of meeting them, you feel like you have known them for years.
Diane warmly greeted me when I arrived and promptly had me settled in my cottage. I met Urs a couple of hours later, when he was preparing the weekly fish fry under the pine trees. What a feast… do not miss it! (Just remind Diane to serve the tomatoes – otherwise you will see more tomatoes on next night’s salad than you have ever seen!)
I found the accommodations to be clean, comfortable, and more than adequate. The restaurant/lounge was very warm and inviting, the boats and motors were safe and reliable, and the meals were exceptional! Breakfast and dinner in the restaurant were served in huge portions and were always delicious. Make sure you leave some room for Diane’s desserts! I also found the flexible seating times to be a bonus, compared to other lodges I have stayed at.
Sincere thanks, Urs and Diane, for being such fantastic hosts, and for an unforgettable five days in the splendor of the north country!
