Welcome to Sabaskong Bay Lodge

Our resort is situated in the heart of Sabaskong Bay on a private 10 acre island, a short 6 mile boat ride from our landing in Morson.


Sabaskong Bay Lodge was one of the first resorts established on Lake of the Woods back in the 1920's. Ernest Calvert, the original owner, having his pick of prime spots on the lake, chose Cedar Island for reasons of convenient location, access to great fishing in sheltered bays, and breath-taking beauty.


You never have to venture far. Sabaskong Bay offers fantastic fishing. Even on the windiest days, the Islands of Lake of the Woods offer great protection. The pristine waters are abundant with Walleye, Trophy Muskie, Crappie, Northern, Bass, and Perch. Superb Trout fishing is close by in Whitefish Bay.

Testimonial from one of our guests that has been coming to Cedar Island for over 50 years

"My father began taking me and my brothers fishing in 1969 to Sabaskong Bay Lodge on Lake of the Woods, and we would return yearly to fill up long stringers with fat walleyes, and to enjoy delicious shore lunches. A visit to Sabaskong Bay Lodge on Cedar Island became a yearly fishing tradition. At the time, Sabaskong Bay Lodge (the first lodge built on Lake of the Woods, around 1920) was one of the only fishing lodges available, and in some ways it hasn’t changed. Although there is a beautiful new lodge and some new cabins now, it’s amazing that a lot of the original log cabins are still there. And the nearby islands are in the same natural, pristine state they’ve been in since the glaciers receded. And not far is a small island with a Thunderbird nest built by First Nations as a place from which to send their dead to the next world. Even though I live in Los Angeles now, decades later I still love to return to Lake of the Woods; I’ve traveled to many places around the world, but I have yet to see anyplace more beautiful. And the fishing is just as good as I remember it when I was seven years old."
