Stirling Lodge            



Henk Egbers Retirement

We are at once happy and sad to announce the retirement of Henk Egbers, handyman and friend extraordinaire. He has been an outstanding addition to the Lodge for more than 20 years, and his presence will be missed by both his coworkers and the many guests he got to know over the years. Many projects and improvements could not have been completed without him, and while he will be sadly missed, we can only feel happy for him and wish him all the best for this next chapter of his life after his many years of hard work.

Lodge Happenings

As always, thank you to all of our fantastic guests who took the time to visit us this past summer. It really is our guests, both returning and new, that make this such a special
business. It is hard to believe that this past summer will have been our families 40th year at Stirling Lodge. As far as our records go, inclusive of our time at the Lodge but also many years of records from the Stirlings before us, it is amazing how many family names are continuous. Generations upon generation have made Stirling Lodge their family trip. Grandparents, parents, children, grandchildren & great grandchildren and so the tradition continues. Stirling lodge has become much more than just a fishing trip but a link between generations which we hope will continue for many years into the future.
This winter we have many projects underway. As always, Anna’s flowers were a huge hit, and we have added a greenhouse this fall to better accommodate new and improved gardens around the property next season. We are continuing to improve and upgrade accommodations as well as the marina to ensure our guests have the best most comfortable stay possible. It’s shaping up to be another busy winter with lots to do so be sure to stay up to date with the latest happenings on our Facebook page!
