The cabins are nicely located away from the highway, providing a tranquil enviroment with stunning sunsets, free of traffic noises heard from other parts of the lake. It's a beautiful area for enjoying nature whether hiking, fishing or just watching the sun set and star gazing. Thanks to Steve and Lydia for making our week a great experience, sharing fishing...

Had booked a bear hunt for september for 4 guys. We arrived late and were told we need to get to our sites right away. Outfitter never had bears hitting our bait sites. In 7 days not one picture of anything on my train cam at anytime of any animals. We all made the best of it but when you...

This party would not listen to the guide,they insisted on cutting trees and putting out pails of stuff and changing the appearance of the sites to the bears.Previous to their arrival, we consistantly had good quality big bears being caught on camera daily. Unfortunately being a deer hunter does not make a Bear Hunter out of this group. Good Big...

The accomodations were as expected. It was nice to have internet access. We received little to no fishing advice because we did not pay for the "guide service". The out lakes, specifically Hangingstone & Stumpy, are great fishing lakes but the access and the boats provided on these lakes are terrible. We fished Hangingstone from the bank because our motor...

Steve L, Owner at Gow-Bush-Kon Lodge, responded to this review

These people from Carlyle seemed really nice, but after instruction, forgot to turn fuel switch on.Without exception, every guest gets a two fold explanation of a map of main lake one to point out hazards, one to show current hot spots for fishing. Out lake boats get abused and some times leak a bit, but you need to open fuel...

From the minute your arrive you are warmley greeted by Steve Lyle (owner/operator) and his partner Lydia with her friendly infectious smile. Every minute of the trip was fantastic from the boating, fishing, blueberry picking to all the wonderful sunsets. The cabin was very spacious with an enclosed porch for watching the beantiful sunsets in the evening. The cabin was...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You are settled in one of our 9 rustic, clean, comfortable cabins situated on the East side of the lake, overlooking the rugged shores and sparkling waters of Gowganda Lake. and from which you view your very own magnificent northern sunset, from your private screened in porch. You fall asleep listening to the haunting call of the Loon, and wake up refreshed to the gentle sound of birds chirping near your cabin. ... more   less
