Creating the Best Fishing Vacation Experience is our Priority

“Sue and Ed do a fantastic job. All of the people at Crane’s were friendly and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. We are already planning to return next year this time. Never been to another place like this. We highly recommend it!” (Tripadvisor Review)

Crane’s Lochaven Wilderness French River lodge is a family owned establishment that has been in operations since 1973. We firmly believe that when you vacation with us, your only job is to have a good time. It’s not fun if you have to cook and clean – so we’ll do it for you.

Our inclusive vacation package rates include everything such as your meals, daily maid service, boat use, and more. Our helpful staff even clean, package and freeze your fish for the trip home, as well as maintain your boat and all included equipment. Our vacation package rates include everything except for your personal gear, alcoholic beverages and fishing tackle and license. Our tuck shop also carries a wide variety of additional fishing tackle, as well as licenses, rain gear, sundries and T-shirts.

We offer free pick-up at our private supervised parking lot at Wolesley Bay and also provide a pick-up service from the airport at a flat rate. Guests who prefer to bring their own boat are welcome to dock it at no additional charge.  Please note that personal watercraft (i.e. Seadoos, WaveRuners, etc) are not welcome.

Customer service is our priority and customer satisfaction is our goal. That’s what keeps our guests coming back to visit year after year.

From the entire Lochaven family, we invite you to come and stay with us and experience an unforgettable holiday on the French River in Ontario, Canada.
