About Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts

Trevor and Jodi Dick are the 2nd generation owners of Bolton Lake Lodge. Trevor’s father Brian Dick bought Bolton Lake Lodge in 1988 as a project for the Manitoba Government. His job was to sell the lodge as it owed money to the Province, but there was a lot of dispute over who he could sell the lodge to. In the end, Brian bought Bolton Lake and his plan was to give it a quick overhaul and sell it to whomever he wanted for a quick profit. Brian quickly learned that Bolton Lake was a special place with unlimited potential for expansion and improvements. All of Brian’s kids worked at the lodge in one capacity or another over time as it became the family business.

May 11 2011 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

May 11th, 2011:  The snow drifts are shrinking every day and the ice is getting rotten!  We have some open water in the back bay where we should be able to land the float plane by tomorrow I think.  The float plane is expected to be here in a few days so it should work out right on schedule.  I don't know what our other lakes look like right now but when the freight and fuel [...]

May 8 2011 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

May 8th, 2011:  This is not going to be an easy start up this year.  We still have large snow drifts in the yard but they've come down significantly since we arrived 3 days ago.  The runway is still wet and soft so I'm probably going to have to postpone my freight and fuel haul unless the forecasted rain doesn't appear.  If the rains miss us then it might still work out. We spent our first [...]

April 29 2011 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

April 29th, 2011:  I'm excited to get this season started!  There's a couple of weather issues that I thought I should update, especially for our early guests.  Right now, the ice is still holding strong.  I was at my mom's cabin yesterday about 50 miles north of Winnipeg and there was still ice on that lake.  Normally there's a full 2 weeks from the time that my mom's lake opens up until the ice on Bolton [...]

January 3 2011 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

November 8, 2010 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

November 8th, 2010:  We have moved into our new house and we're seeing deer almost daily in our backyard!  I've taken a couple of days for a bit of Whitetail hunting but have spent most of my time getting the old house ready to sell and setting up the new house with an office and work shop area for my outboard engines and other equipment.  I managed to get a doe last week and hope to [...]

September 28, 2010 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

September 28th, 2010:  The season is officially over at the lodge but Tom is still hanging around at the lodge looking for moose and getting a bit of work done.  The water continued coming up into September but has finally started to drop over the past 2 weeks.  Unfortunately the damage was done before the water dropped back down.  The top of our main dock was ripped off it's cribs by the wind and waves and [...]
