    Photos Of The Lodge


    Our half mile of blonde sand beach, 2100 sq ft lodge, 91 campsites, 2 group camps, 5 fully modern rental cabins (plus one modern cabin), rental boats and associated outbuildings, sitting on 75 acres of very reasonably priced leased land in Meadow Lake Provincial Park, will appeal to anyone with a keen business eye.

    The resort offers an excellent income, whether you are seeking a relaxing semi-retirement working just the late spring and summer season or someone with a hunger for business and looking to take advantage of the numerous opportunities for expansion, such as fall and winter cabin rentals, expanding the RV camping season, sledding, ice fishing, pontoon rentals, beach side canteen or re-opening the restaurant. Or relax and spend your seven month off season in a warmer climate or build your lake view dream home on site and spend your off season enjoying life in a secluded semi-off grid location in a beautiful natural environment.

    With approximately 50 repeat seasonal site guests, the basis for a successful season is set before you even open the doors for the May Long Weekend.

    Northern Cross is truly a turnkey business operation! The resort has been operated by the same family for the last 30 years with our kids working alongside us as they grew up, creating a strong reputation of quality, care and consistency both online and locally.

    We have taken a great deal of pride in the environment that we offer our guest and have just completed a 5 year cycle of upgrades which have totally transformed the property into a more sustainable and enjoyable resort for both our guests and ourselves – work smarter not harder.   With our kids now having gone on to make their own way, these changes have allowed us to successfully operate the resort with just ourselves and two full time seasonal staff.
