Cairns and Crags Lodge

The Experience

Cairns and Crags Lodge is an exclusive lodging and fishing experience on Lake Winnipesaukee. The Lodge hosts guests that book the Fish and Stay (lodging and charter) package or want to bring their own boat. Enjoy first class accommodations and relax by the waterside or visit with the Owner/Guide about the next day of fishing. Morning will come early as you wake to the sound of loons and the smell of coffee. The early morning charter departs up to one half hour prior to sunrise, and you will spend 5 hours on the boat. Upon completion of the charter, you will have plenty of time to process any fish you decide to keep and check out of the lodge by noon. Cairns and Crags Lodge is the ultimate Lake Winnipesaukee fishing experience like no other.

Check in time for the Lodge is at 4 pm and leaves time for an evening of fishing or relaxing on the shoreline. Check out is at noon on the day of departure.
