In our continuing summer adventures with the Ontario cousins, we spent the last few days northeast of Spiritwood in the Thickwood Hills at the Carlton Trail Guest Ranch, carltontrailguestranch.com. It is a lovely spot on Savard Lake with a few rental cabins and a lodge. The cabins are roomy and done in a rustic style, with verandahs that overlook the lake.
There are no motorized water craft so it is quiet, peaceful and very scenic. There are other lakes close by to take bigger boats on. It is a great place to go with large groups, as everyone can have some space. The fishing is supposed to be good but our keen fisherman got skunked. They still enjoyed paddling and swimming. All in all we had a most enjoyable, relaxing time.
