Our Manitoba lodge is stunningly unique.

Nature-inspired interiors in earth colors enrich the rooms at Cobham River Lodge. Cobham River Lodge is custom designed with handcrafted pine furniture and true Canadian comforts with luxurious down duvets, fine Hudson Bay blankets and pillows.

Amenities

Upon your return to the lodge after a full day of Canada fishing, you will be greeted at the dock by our helpful staff who will assist you with your fishing gear. Guests use this time to relax on our Canadian handmade furniture made of native pine while watching their favorite baseball or NFL preseason game on our flat screen TV with 300+ channels. Some guests use this time to catch up back home with our free, high-speed internet and free phone calls. While you are enjoying your evening appetizers, your boat will be cleaned and refueled so it is ready if you choose to chase a trophy Canadian Northern Pike or Walleye after your evening meal.

After dinner the guests gather around the large native rock fireplace, or venture onto the large screened in deck and talk about the big one that got away or (hopefully) the one they landed, play cards, or resume watching their favorite team on satellite TV. For that avid fisherman who still wants more Canadian fishing your boat is waiting, just be back before the Northern Lights!

Meals

Each morning guests enjoy specialty coffees and teas along with breakfast selections including classics and some more intriguing options from our culinary team. Each evening the dining room is transformed by fine-dining dinner service offering premium steaks, regional specialties, fresh seafood features, and locally sourced produce when available. We offer dishes exquisite enough to satisfy the most discerning palate, yet fulfilling enough to be considered good old fashioned comfort food.

Breakfasts consist of omelets, eggs Benedict, breakfast skillets, pancakes or french toast plus bacon, sausage or ham and we never forget the juice and coffee! If there is a breakfast meal (or lunch or dinner) you’re craving, our staff will go above and beyond to make it happen. Also, if you have any dietary restrictions, such as pork or shellfish products, nuts, dairy, etc., we are happy to accommodate you. Just please let us know in advance so we can make the necessary arrangements to customize your meals to fit your needs.

Shore lunch on the Cobham is done to maximize your time on the water, unlike at other fishing lodges where you lose an hour or more of precious fishing time waiting for shore lunch to be prepared. Here, we begin your full service Canadian shore lunch while you fish. At 11 am each day using fresh Walleye we prepare your delicious shore lunch on our custom woks over an open fire so it is timed for your noon arrival.

Dinner is served at 7 pm. Meals at the Lodge, what can I say! Our departing guests say it best, “I am not eating for a week when I get home”, and “I must have gained 10 pounds.” The menu at the lodge consists of a soup and salad bar, with main entrees including ham, pork roasts, beef roasts, steak, turkey, ribs and many original recipes. Don’t forget the desserts, homemade bread, pies, and other selections.

BOATS

Description

Your Manitoba fly-in fishing experience begins as you make your way through the Canadian wilderness to the beach to find your 16′ wide-body Lund boat installed with swivel seats with backrests, landing nets, stringers and boat cushions. Your boat is also equipped with a 20HP Yamaha 4-stroke outboard tied to the dock awaiting your arrival. With your ice-downed beverage cooler already stowed and outboard warmed up you are ready to hunt down those trophy Northern Pike and Walleye.

Details

The Winnipeg International Airport (YWG) is the primary airport for central Canada. Guests can take advantage of 12 airlines with service from 44 Canada cities and 92 U.S. cities to Winnipeg Richardson International Airport, a scenic drive to Cobham River seaplane base in St. Andrews, MB (27 KM) or Bissett, MB (234 KM). All major rental cars companies are available at the Winnipeg International Airport, as well as several transportation companies to provide service from Winnipeg International Airport to Cobham River seaplane base. We recommend the car rental option once you arrive in Winnipeg as a transport service has proven to be more costly.

Bissett is a 3 hour drive from Winnipeg. Guests will plan to arrive the night before and stay at Northern Wings Bed and Breakfast. Guests will arrive the night before their departure and have an early morning departure on day 1 of their trip, which will still get you on the water by 8 am at the lodge (weather permitting). NOTE: 75 LBS. Baggage limit for Bissett departure.
