Boat-In Outposts Cottages

Boat In Outpost Cottage – Ivanhoe River – 8, 14, and 22 miles by water to reach these cottages…

We have three boat-in cottages for you to choose from. Guests leave Ivanhoe River Inn on Ivanhoe Lake and boat-in to their cabin. The river is very slow moving and locating your cabin is very easy. All offer great fishing for walleye, northern pike, and jumbo perch. Your package starts Friday 3 PM and ends Friday 10 AM

You will be arriving to a nice clean cottage – you will be responsible to leave it as a nice clean cottage.

The cabins are equipped for full housekeeping including propane refrigerator and freezer (apartment sized), propane 4 burner stove and oven, propane lights, all dishes, pots, pans, pillows, mattresses, and corner sheets. All cabins have a wood-heating stove.  The river cottages are all setup with a full electrical system with a solar / battery / inverter system as well as a small backup generator.  The camps are all wired for electric lights as well as electric outlets – regular 110 volt systems like your used to at home (at least in North America).
