Time to think about booking for 2013

The snow is starting to melt and the days are slowly starting to get warmer.  Soon the ice will be off the lake and the loons will be back for the season.  We've been busy taking reservations for the spring and summer and are very excited to have some returning guests!  2011 was our first year and 2012 was a busy year for property improvements and renovations.  We hope to keep building on the positive changes for the enjoyment of our guests.  Amanda is returning this year (first week of May) to manage the business and is very excited to see familiar faces (last summer was such a blast).

Temagami Canoe Trip

We explored the lakes of Temagami this weekend by canoe. We set out early saturday morning with our bags packed full of food and rain gear for the day. Our plan was to explore Jumping Caribou, Twinsister, Ingall and Waha lake. 

We started off in Angus lake (our home lake) with the sun shining and the lake looking like glass. We paddled across the lake to the first portage into Jumping Caribou. The portage is only 20 meters, so we carried the canoe with our gear still in it. EASY. Once in Jumping Caribou we started our exploration.

Hiking in Temagami

It was HOT and beautiful (as always) today in the North Country. We spent the day hiking and swimming and working - of course.

We went hiking this morning in Temagami, which is only fifteen minutes north of Ridgewood Cottages, and is home to many hiking trails. You can choose a short uphill hike to the tower or a 10km hike around the woods or a few short loops. We decided on the short but sweet hike up to thefire tower! The tower hike is a nice hike. Lots of wildlife to see; birds, beavers, turtles, fish, dragon flies, ducks and more.

Portage into Jumping Cariboo

Yesterday, a few of us (Ridgewood employees) canoed across Angus Lake and carried our canoe and fishing gear into Jumping Cariboo lake. It only took us ten minutes to cross the lake with the wind at our backs and with a short walk we were in Jumping Caribou within twenty minutes of departure from our docks. It was a beautiful, sunny day and the bass were out around the rocks and the birds were singing to us. There is quite an assortment of birds up here. We have heard White Throated Sparrows, Magnolia Warblers, Pileated Woodpeckers, Thrushs and many more.
