4 Reasons to Vist Falcon and West Hawk Lakes!

Crisp, white, crunchy snow under foot. Hot chocolate and warm fires. Explore via ski, snowshoe and snowmobile, expereince the thrill of the ski hll or just take a break in the quiet of the season.

Our best kept secret — the sap is running, the eagles are returning. Spend a quiet evening on the dock listening to the ice break up for another year.

Wildflowers and moss carpet the forest floor. Loon songs and nature trails. Boating, simming, horesback riding, golfing. Summer at the lake.

This is our most glorious time. Warm days and cool nights. Watch the changing colours. Listen to the ice form on a quiet lake beneath the northern lights. See the gathering of the loons as they prepare to migrate.
