There is a posh Dining room, sitting room, bar, and recreation room, and each are within view of a large fireplace.

Duck hunting over decoys, morning and afternoons. Morning hunts depart the lodge in the dark, but after a hearty breakfast, with everything from waffles to eggs Benedict made to order.
Drives vary depending on water conditions, but range from ten to forty five minutes.
Hunters are placed in dry blinds, or large dry, sunken “buckets” of the style of an individual pit blind, or on platform-pallet blinds.
Shooting over decoys starts at first light and continues until 10 am or after. Most days, duck hunters return to the lodge for lunch and a siesta before afternoon departures at about 3pm for evening duck hunts.
Evening hunts last until dark.
