This stretch of Eagle Lake is home to six varieties of fish, all of them starting within sight of your cottage. Eagle Lake itself is 90 miles long with over 68,000 acres of water.Eagle lake offers some of the best Ontario walleye fishing, fast northern pike action, smallmouth bass, world record class muskie fishing, deep diving Lake Trout, and something different, whitefish!
If you do want to go exploring beyond the West Arm there is plenty of room to do so, but we find it is not necessary to do so much traveling.Positioned all around the West Arm is a series of smaller portage lakes that our guests have access to via a short portage.
We have placed the boats motors and gas on the other side of the short portage (10 – 65 yards). All you have to do is carry your fishing gear across. With fully equipped, handicapped accessible cottages, from one to four bedrooms, our guests are delighted with our five star quality cottages. All our beds are extra long, and the cottages come complete with all the bedding and linens. Kitchen and bath towels are changed daily.

All cabins also receive wireless internet. Kitchens are fully equipped with modern electric ranges.
A full compliment of utensils, dishes, glasses, pots & pans. Every cottage includes an electric toaster, coffee maker and microwave. Double bowl sinks with hot and cold running water, large refrigerators with freezer compartments complete your vacation cottage.

- Rob, this was, by far, our best Canadian fishing trip ever! The service we received was fantastic, from housekeeping to personal launching/docking, from new customer guide service to free fish cleaning; everything was first class all the way. Our unit was immaculately clean, beds were extremely comfortable, and ceiling fans in every room were a life-saver! Our view was perfect and daily towel service was an appreciated added bonus! Your grounds were simply beautiful and well maintained. You provide the newest and most efficient boats/motors. After fishing off a 17-1/2 ft Lund with a 40 hp Yamaha 4-stroke engine with newly mounted easy-to-use trolling motors, live wells, fish locators, with all necessary equipment supplied free of charge, it's difficult to go back to our "normal" set-up! We were all pleasantly surprised at the boat house/office and it's use of a computer, gift shop, fresh popcorn/coffee, TV to watch, and to simply sit, lounge and converse - what a great idea! We utilized the mini Laundromat that saved us much time/work upon our return home. The staff surpassed any we have encountered thus far. They were extremely friendly, efficient, and helpful! It's quite obvious this camp is run utilizing a team effort and have become a "family"! Rob, our thanks to you and all who made this fishing trip the most enjoyable ever. I will recommend Stanley's Resort to all our fishing friends/family. Can't wait to see you all again in June, 2007, and for many more years to come! God Bless!

- Speaking for our group and myself, I would like to thank you very much for our wonderful fishing week. The accommodations were wonderful (better than anywhere we've been in Canada). The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Most importantly, the fishing was excellent, (overall better than anywhere we've been in Canada). I will be in contact with you folks on October 1 to try to get booked next year for June. We really would like to catch some of those "earlier walleyes", and don't mind throwing back the big bass. We would either plan to come June 7 or June 28, if we can get in at that time. If not July would work.
Once again, thank you very much and have a great summer. I will send you a
picture of the 4.5 pound bass.

- This is a comment letter to prospective visitors to Stanley's on Eagle Lake Ontario
We spent a week of supreme fishing on a pristine lake in a setting only one's mind could hope for.
As first time clients at Stanley's, we were not rookies to vacationing and fishing in Canada.
The difference at Stanley's is manifested in a number of ways. First the hospitality of the Stanley's family and their staff is superlative, and seemingly a well kept secret. They cater to our every wish and certainly to our needs. They were prepared to share fishing lore, techniques, and the "best spots" on the lake.
Second, the cabins and accommodating are clean, well designed, comfortable and fully equipped.
Next, the attention to detail in service is much superior to other times, other places in their profession. You truly feel part of the family. They go out of their way to introduce their clients to each other while respecting the privacy of all.
The value received from each service they provide; from bait, to boat handling instructions to lure and bait techniques and presentation are truly superlative for the novice and/or professional fisherman.
Families are welcomed and children are accommodated with instruction and care.
In short, this was a week of relaxing good times, fish production and hosting by a caring family and staff.
This unsolicited comment is freely given. We will return to this garden spot of the sports fisherman

- Thanks again for a great vacation. My father and I had the best week of fishing we could have imagined. Attached are just a few shots of some of the pike and walleye (and even one musky) we caught. We kept only a few walleye to eat and I can't even begin to guess how many fish we released. Hope we'll be able to get up there again sometime!
