For the ultimate getaway, choose Moose Horn Lodge in Chapleau, Ontario, Canada any time of the year. They are located only four hours from the Michigan border and nine hours from Toronto. For guests coming from the US, a passport is needed.
Anglers and hunters will find few other places with the same high success rates. Walleye, northern pike, brook trout, smallmouth bass and whitefish are plentiful in the unlimited number of lakes in the area. For anglers, watching walleye come right up to the boat is a sight not soon forgotten. Bring a video camera to show friends who think that you are spinning a “fish story”. If a hunter goes home empty handed, it is because he didn’t go hunting. Chapleau is home to the largest black bear concentration in Canada. There is an excellent moose population in the area as well as some of the best grouse hunting in Ontario.
The lodge is located on McLennan Lake near the town of Chapleau which has just been named “The Ultimate Fishing Town in Canada”.

Non-hunters also find Moose Horn Lodge a perfect getaway. You can see beaver and loons on the lake, wake up to squirrels and chipmunks at your doorstep or watch bald eagles flying overhead. Go swimming in the spring fed crystal clear lake or just relax at the shoreline. Enjoy the sunrises at one end of the lake and the sunsets at the other end.
A hot tub and sauna soothes the muscles and allows the pressures of everyday life to melt away. Wireless internet connections are available in the main lodge.
