We have a camp dog, so we accept family pets. We ask that you please look after your dog. We find most sportsmen have well trained dogs. Guests will be responsible for any damages to furniture etc. No cats.

Is your lodge “wife friendly”?

“Wife friendly” seems to be a new buzz word and we are often asked this question. Meline’s Lodge is very wife friendly – by this we mean each cabin is spacious and very modern. Each is totally equipped with a modern kitchen, new furniture, remodeled bathrooms, air-conditioning, deck with BBQ, private parking, close to shopping, Greens Bar, mini-golf, other restaurants, etc.

What is your menu plan?

For information on our kitchen and menu plan please see our menu on our Accommodations page.

Can we bring our own boat?

We have many guests who bring their own boat and they challenge Lake of the Woods on their own. Some guests dine with us in our dining room; others cook for themselves in their cabin or combine a little of both. There is no charge to tie your boat to one of our docks. Each dock has electrical outlets and lights. Our guests can also hire a guide to fish with them in their boat.

Are all of your packages for 1 week?

No, we will try to fit in every group, for any duration they request.  We try to work with our guests to plan an experience that suits their group.

What is your Cancellation Policy?

We understand that late cancellations are an unavoidable part of this industry, however, in such a short season cancellations are very costly to us, especially during peek times.  We prefer to apply any cancellation deposits toward a different package on another date.  However, if we encounter cancellations less than 2 months before the arrival date, the deposit may be forfeited.
