With up to 100 friends, family and clients on hand, Namushka Lodge celebrated its grand re-opening July 17, 2021
Float planes ferried guests to and from the lodge between 9:00am and 8:00pm. Upon arrival, guests were given a personal tour of the premises by lodge owner Bryan Chorostkowski.
Michelle Handley Tourism Development Office for ITI’s North Slave Regional Office was honoured to be among those at the event.
“The (new) lodge is absolutely stunning and so pristine. Everyone had positive comments. I knew people on different flights and we all had the same reaction— wow, I’ve got to book that lodge,” she raved.
The lodge itself is fully equipped with a commercial grade kitchen, three bathrooms, floor to ceiling windows, a hot tub, and a screened-in dining room.
At night, guests can retire to individual cabins featuring 2 queen beds per cabin and personal bathrooms. Each cabin has its own skylight to enjoy the midnight sun, or fall asleep under the dancing aurora. Both the lodge and the cabins offer unobstructed views of Harding Lake.
In addition to the lodge and cabins, guests have full access to three Lund boats, a pontoon boat with onboard grill, and kayaks.
Through it North Slave Regional Office, the Department of Industry Tourism and Investment has supported Namushka lodge using a number of its funding platforms and initiatives.
Over $200,000 has been invested, over several years to expand and improve the lodge’s product offerings and marketing.
“I’m really happy that we have something like this to offer visitors. Once the borders are open again, it’ll be hugely popular,” Handley says.
The Department of ITI is delighted to see one of the North's premiere tourism operators back up and running.
