Visit The West Arm Lodge for the utmost in comfort, family fun, and beautiful natural surroundings. This versatile lodge on Lake Nipissing's West Arm is ideal for a big family getaway, a romantic escape, or a back-to-nature retreat with all the modern comforts. A rustic and serene cottage and fishing lodge/resort, with 12 private waterfront cottages, eleven two-bedroom and one large five-bedroom; each cottage has a private dock, 16’ fishing boats for rent and some of the best fishing around. Surrounded by nature and yet just 10 kilometers from either of two villages, this year-round lodge features a casual ambiance that's ideal for overnight or weekend retreats, holiday celebrations, and more.
Each of our cottages offer an incredible view of the west arm of Lake Nipissing that you can sit lake-side and enjoy, a full kitchen with everything you need, dining and a sitting area, a four-piece bath, picnic table, two resin Adirondack chairs, and a BBQ, a few of them have a screened-in porch. The lodge provides linens, towels, soap, and bath tissue. Wireless Internet is available. This is a family and pet friendly lodge.
The fishing here is outstanding. If you love trophy-sized fish, then you will love the weedy shoreline where large Northern Pike and Muskie lurk. Other species of fish include Walleye, Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, and Perch. The lodge supplies everything that you'd need for a fishing adventure, but guests are welcome to bring their own gear.
There are plenty of opportunities for fly fishing here. Smallmouth and Largemouth bass will readily take after a fly. The most amazing fish to catch here on a fly is the Northern Pike. A little jig with a dry mouse pattern over a weedy patch is magic. You might even get the mighty Muskie to strike a fly. If that should happen, just hold on tight cause things are about to get busy and crazy all at once. 
We also offer its own 540-square-kilometer bear management area and makes full use of it with organized, guided bear-hunting safaris. This carefully managed, baited area offers some of Ontario's highest concentration of black bear.

We look forward to your visit, see you soon.
