“Perfect Get Away”
Reviewed 7 February 2016 for a stay in June 2015

The Lodge Cottage is a the perfect place to get away with friends and family. The amenities are numerous, and allow you to get back to nature without completely losing touch with the world.

There is enough space for a large group so that you can have your own rooms with clean and comfortable common rooms for spending time together.

The lake offers world class fishing that provides every opportunity from the beginner catching her fist fish to the expert catching hundreds of LM bass, SM bass, Pike, walleye, perch, rock bass, and more.

Your hosts, Mr. and Mrs. Hill, will make sure that you have everything you need to enjoy your visit.

Plenty of room for all to stay with bedrooms well equipped kitchen . Upstairs bathroom would meet a large group needs as ther were only 2 bathrooms and only one shower .
Privacy on the property and the owners were available if anything was required

“the setting is perfect, the lodge is spacious, spotless and very well maintained.”
Reviewed 8 October 2015 for a stay in September 2014

My cousin, brother and I have been traveling to Norcan lake for 40 years. Obviously (to those of you familiar with Norcan) we roughed it for most of those years. We stopped roughing it when we began staying at Canonto in 2002. Since then,we have stayed in all the cottages except the Hill Top. All the facilities are first rate for a group of serious fishermen and women or a family just looking for a great spot on a gorgeous lake, or both. The added benefit is the Hill family who are caring, friendly and responsive to all our needs. All their equipment is well maintained,including their boats and motors, if you need to rent. Go, you will have a wonderful time and great fishing.

“A relaxing and calming stay”
Reviewed 7 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

If you're looking to escape reality and city-life while among family and friends. This is the place for you! We stayed for four days, and it was absolutely amazing. The views were serene, the lodge comfy and cozy. Everything was supplied in the kitchen, the bed were comfortable and the showers clean. The owners, Dave & Penny were so extremely nice, like we've known them forever! They were always willing to help and provided us with excellent conversation. The stories that Dave shared are some that I will never forget. It's a lovely place to visit, and to I hope to return again, and again, and again! Be sure to pack enough food and toiletries as you are far from any major (and small) town/city. Which is fantastic! At night, no noise, complete darkness. Just the gentle waves hitting shore. In the early morning, watching the sunrise and listening to the loons is sure not to be missed.

“Absoutely a fine getaway for the family & fellows”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We have rented the lodge for 5 consecutive years during the 3rd week of May. We are mostly retired & active Pa. State Troopers with teenage boys. We basically come up for fishing and just escaping reality. After a week of stay we find it hard to leave. I would definitely bring the wife and daughter to the lodge but this is the boys vacation -- August I take the wife and daughter south to the beach. Norcan lake is the place to bring your kids and catch hundreds of fish - you actually get tired of catching fish !!!!!!! Campfires, horse shoes, corn hole, having a fine cigar and a cold drink, telling lies with your buddies- doesn't get any better than this. The natives and locals are good folk - kind and warm environment. Beautiful rustic lodge for a large group - everything you need for a week of freedom !!!!!!!!
