to our Lodge
For over thirty years it has been our passion to share this spectacular part of the world, and our passion continues to grow with each new and returning guest. We welcome you to be our guest this season and share in the camaraderie that keeps people returning. We have been offering packages to outdoor enthusiasts for over thirty years and provide guests with expert knowledge in a fun and safe environment.
“People come as guests and leave as friends.” People come as guests and leave as friends.” This slogan exemplifies a large reason why so many guests come back to fish and join us on our Arctic Photography Workshop. Since we only host a maximum of 10 guests at one time we
are able to get to know you on an individual basis. We dine together
in our main lodge and share personal stories and talk about the ‘one
that got away' in the comfort of our lounge. Our certified cook prepares
healthy meals and is considerate to guests who have special dietary
or health requirements.
Relaxing in the lodge.
Our collection of northern books range from historical accounts of early explorers surviving in the Arctic, stories on notorious bush plane pilots to books on Arctic plants and animals.
After your fun-filled day you may want to enjoy a drink and sample
the cook's appetizers on the lodge deck or in the screened in gazebo;
or perhaps you might sit back and relax by the warmth of a wood-burning
stove and read the adventures of Samuel Hearne and Sr. John Franklin,
two famous explorers that traveled throughout the area.

They provide invaluable insights to each trip. Perhaps most important is Peterson's Point Lake Lodge guides' consideration for your safety.
