Before and After: The Cabin on Herod Lake
April 25, 2016
Nestor Falls Fly-In is deep in Canada’s wilderness – but that doesn’t mean you have to “rough it!” We’ve spent the last 10 or so years remodeling each of our cabins to go above and beyond what fly-in fishermen expect at an outpost.
Take a look at the old cabin on Herod Lake. It served us well for many years but Dave and I had finally decided it needed an upgrade in about 2007. The cabin was in the best spot on the lake however so we built a more spacious cabin right next door! Like our other outpost cabin, the new place on Herod has hardwood floors, a full kitchen and larger living area, and water to have a hot shower. What a change from that old vinyl floor and indoor patio chairs!
The cabin is now a beautiful place to relax. I think we love the deck most, it’s a great place to enjoy breakfast in the morning or a cold beer at the end of the day.
The old cabin still has a place in our hearts, so we left it standing on Herod Lake for nostalgia’s sake. And – it would’ve taken us weeks of non-stop work to tear down the cabin and fly the materials back to our base!
Escape to the Wilderness,
