New Floors and Danish Treats for the Halsted Party
October 17, 2014
The Halsted party returned to Nestor Falls this past season, making home at Cairns Lake. They report that the fishing was fabulous and that they released “more walleye than we cared to count and many more large Northern Pike than they had ever seen.”
David Halsted also told us they enjoyed the new flooring and special “decorator touches” in the cabin. Someone in the group even suggested that they should plan a formal dinner during their next stay to do the place justice! We’re thrilled that the improvements to our cabins are so well-liked. These outposts are our pride and joy, so we want to make sure they feel like a second home in the wilderness for our guests.
Unfortunately, Dave and I were away during the Halsted party’s stay and were unable to see them. However, we were incredibly excited to receive the nicest note from David, telling us how our staff made them feel right at home while we were away:
In your absence, the staff did a wonderful job. They held to the highest standards of Nestor Falls Fly-In. And if I might, I would like to take a moment to commend Otter pilot Will on his performance on our return flight. Ten minutes out of base, he ran into a big grey wall of clouds that prevented a run-of-the-mill return. I know as I was in the right seat. I’m sure he can and has given you the blow by blow story with more accuracy than I can. What he cannot tell you is how much confidence I felt as I watched the situation, his reaction and execution that resulted in our safe return. I have always felt very safe with your pilots, but I felt this was a special situation and deserved some recognition.
We would also like to thank you for going to the extra effort to get those Danish and all the other groceries for the night before. It is one of the things that makes Nestor Falls Fly-In the best in Ontario and, I suspect, in Canada.
As always, we look forward to our return to the fascinating Cairns Lake.
David S. Halsted, MD FACS
David, your words of gratitude are touching! We know firsthand how wonderful our staff and pilots are, but we love hearing such great stories directly from our guests. Thank you for supporting us throughout the years. We can’t wait to see you and your party next season!
Escape to the Wilderness,
Dave & Michelle
