Located in the heart of the Eastern Ontario Trails Alliance (EOTA), Limerick Lake Lodge is the perfect destination if you are looking to ride for a few days, chill in Ontario’s premiere cottage county and maybe, just maybe, catch a fish or two.
ATV World has really been focusing on ride destinations in Ontario due to the fact that Ontario is truly a great place to ride, relax and meet good people. When George Offshack proprietor and Inn keeper of Limerick Lake Lodge called and asked if we would like to come up to visit, spend a few days riding on the Eastern Ontario Trails Alliance (EOTA) the question was not even finished when we replied “Yup”. We had just finished putting the snowmobiles away for the winter, cleaned up the STV studio and now we were ready to ride ATV’s. It was perfect timing.
Limerick Lake Lodge, located on the south end of Limerick Lake is open from Ice Out to Ice In, and during the early spring months is set up perfectly for a week or weekend away to ride the ATV’s and UTV’s. The lodge is located less than 2kms away from the Heritage Trail, and literally crosses the dirt road into the lodge. From the trail head you have access to over 500kms of maintained trails from the EOTA. With 30 pillows available, you can choose to either be in the main lodge and utilise a meal plan that George can prepare for you, or if you are more self-sufficient, you can book one of the stand–alone cabins that have full amenities. Bring your own food, and cook on supplied BBQ’s and kitchens. For us at ATV World we opted for the main cabin, and meal plan. There is no “formal” restaurant in the lodge, so if you are planning to use the meal plan just let them know when you book. Beverages are on your own, however BYOB is very friendly at the lodge, and there are fridges you can use to keep them cold. The main lodge offers a large rec room with pool tables, TV’s, games and stereos, as well as a Den that has large screen TV’s and an amazing view of the lake. The Limerick Lake Lodge immediately feels like you are home when you arrive.
