If you could pinpoint the center of the Minipi Watershed, it would have to be Anne Marie. The headwaters flow together into compact, smaller bodies of water, and on a jutting peninsula that gives the most breathtaking view, we have built the Anne Marie Lodge. Some 6,000 sq. feet of modern day amenities, this lodge is the perfect jumping off point for anglers wanting to cast their line on any corner of the Minipi Watershed.
The lodge itself was designed so that all bedrooms have large windows and an unobstructed view of Anne Marie Lake. The eastern wing has 5 double occupancy bedrooms, all with en-suite bath. Sitting in the common room with a cup of coffee under one of Derek deYoungs stunning fish art paintings, one can watch a glorious sunrise, and watch that same sun set on the dimpling rises of feeding brookies during the evening meal. Not many stay to enjoy all of the sunset since we’re so big on evening fishing, most will prefer to head out to the dimpling rises and have a go until the incandescent lights of Anne Marie beckon them back for an evening night cap. Many enjoy a fine cigar and celebratory drink on the front deck while the last remnants of the northern sun linger into the twilight hours.
Post and beam construction add to the charm of the lodge. Beautiful old logs from Nova Scotia trucked to Goose Bay, then flown by helicopter or twin otter 65 miles into the wilderness are the focal point of the construction, finished with local spruce and a natural oiled finish that melts the lodge into it’s wild surroundings. The lodge is spacious, new and comfortable, with satellite phone service, continuous electricity, and full service bathrooms, so bring your electric razor, or your CPAP machine even, whatever you need to be comfortable, the Lodge can handle your needs away from home.
