Aikens!!!! The BEST!

Finished our fourth visit. This place is wonderful. We are headed back next year! Staff is fantastic, fishing is wonderful, guides are excellent, our guide spend own time fishing to make sure we were on the best spots. I own my business, I wish I had the ability to hire people, young people, that understand what the service business is. This staff is so impressive that you will become attached and appreciate their wonderful work ethic to make sure your stay is perfect.

Relaxing trip to the wilderness of Canada!

 An amazing experience for my wife and I as we celebrated our anniversary. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by the entire team of Aikens Lodge, immediately feeling right at home in our vacation destination. Pit and Julie upgraded our room and had a bottle of champagne waiting on ice as a way to help us celebrate! Our guide was first class, we caught a lot of fish and his sole purpose was to ensure we had a great trip. Our cabin was beautiful and spacious, great view of the lake and very clean!

As I write this, trying to figure out how I am going to lose the 5 pounds I gained while there for 4 days, the meals were that good! The staff at Aikens is first class, friendly and hard working, an overall great experience which I hope will lead to many more visits over the years!

Year 4 Over...Coming Back For Year 5

For anyone looking to get "off the grid" and go fishing in the middle of nowhere with everything...EVERYTHING taken care of (food, equipment, cabins, snacks, drinks, meals, etc) in a safe and welcoming environment, Aikens Lake is it. With upgraded wifi I was able to "check in" at work and at home so I didn't feel too removed but at the same time my son and his best friend and I made memories to last a lifetime. Whether you are a complete novice fisherman like me or a seasoned professional, you'll feel comfortable at Aikens.

Happiness is a trip to Aikins Lake Wilderness Lodge

Wow where to start- you might have to wait for the movie- lol- Just a first class experience. Service from the Staff to the Guides ( especially JB) and the owners (Pit and Julie) was excellent and the memories of Molly's Bar still make me warm and fuzzy inside.. Lots of laughs and the ability to meet people from all over the planet made for a truly enjoyable experience. You must try the Bank board Shuffleboard as well.

Highly recommend if your looking for a great place to unwind with World class fishing - this is the place for you.

6 Stars if I could rate

Just finished my 4th annual Aikens trip. Cant say enough good things about this place after each visit. Its not only the amenities, the lodge and the location, but the welcome feeling that the entire staff give you. The Aikens Experience comes from the dedication Pit & Julie, Pat & Janelle have for the place and it shows through how their staff treat and react to their guests. From guides, to dock hands, to house keeping to the chief - The experience is what keeps me coming back. This is not just a fly in fishing lodge.
