Horrible STINK goes with uninterested owners.
Apparently, the previous owner (grandparent of current owner) was wonderful and made this place great. New owners work other full-time jobs, and have little time or interest in maintaining the reputation. Dirty everywhere, including kitchen and fridge. Owners often away without notice and without locking up. No security for person or goods on site. Hot tub not working. No wifi. Zero amenities. Dog and three cats in house. The STINK is awful. Smells like a combination of pet feces, mould, and decay. Permeates every corner of the building, even with all windows wide open, including the outside front porch. Watch where you're walking, because pets defalcate anywhere, with no cleanup. Gardens are a mass of weeds. Dirty ash trays. Half waffle, 3 Icelandic waffles and 2 sausages for brekkie, with OJ and (Folgers?) tasteless coffee. All-in-all, have reported the facility to Manitoba Health, as it is not a safe place to stay. Stay away.

Solmundson Gesta Hus is a charming house owned by a sweet couple: Jonathan & Sydney Caines. They are incredibly hospitable, professionally trained in the culinary arts, and are great sources of information about Hecla Island (history and present). The house is literally across the road from Lake Winnipeg and is surrounded by amazing scenery. If you visit, be aware there are roaming creatures, mainly Canadian geese, so watch your step. Highly recommended and well worth your drive (we drove 1200 km and did not regret a minute of it).
