War Eagle Lake Wilderness Experience


    At this time we can not accept reservation for War Eagle Lake Wilderness Lodge; due to present conditions.  Please check back for updates or email



     War Eagle Wilderness Retreat offers a chance to leave your busy lives behind and…just “be” for a few days.

    Located approximately 10 miles west of Brereton Lake, War Eagle abounds with Wildlife and Waterfowl.  Our 1400 sq ft Hand Crafted Log Cabin is the only dwelling on the lake. You will have the whole lake to yourselves.

    War Eagle Lake Wilderness Retreat offers traditional conveniences to ensure a naturally comfortable stay” 

    Spend your days swimming, hike to the old gold mine, canoeing the lake, fishing from shore or head out in the boat.


    And in the evening relax by the fire on the point, while watching the sun set across the lake




    Getting there is half the fun!

    Head back-country with Stu, your guide, for an hour and half ride in the Polaris Ranger to the shore of War Eagle Lake.  Then across the lake to our Log Cabin.  Stu will get you organized and then leave you to ……..enjoy the lake to yourselves!

    The ATV ride-in takes about 11/2 hour.  The first 1/3 of the trail is part of the Trans-Canada Great Trail shared with bikers and hikers.

    In a half hour we reach our first rest spot; the new bridge over the Rennie River on the Great Trail.


    The next 1/3 of the trail travels along an old logging trail through some beautiful new growth forest. 

     We will often see wildlife on the trail. 


    The last 1/3 offers some excitement as Stu take you through some swamp and over some roc


     Getting there, truly is, half the fun!



      Our hand crafted log cabin is built on the east side of the lake with a spectacular view of the sunset from the front porch.

    There is an open ceiling over the livingroom and kitchen.

    (… the joke is “Running water depending on how quickly you bring a pail of water up from the lake” LOL)

    Just before bed, head down to the shore to fill up the water pail for morning. One last chance to check out the sunset

    Out on the lake or off the dock; going for a master angler or just for a few minutes with your best bud; fishing is a great way to unwind!
