A Sunset Point Welcome!
This site was last updated on Monday, November 09, 2015

The season has drawn to a close.....time to look forward to 2016!

2015 will beckon the Big Sand fishing addict.  Beware.  If you book yourself into Sunset Point's superb setting, you may become a goner, no turning back.  Here's the password: fish-your-ass-off.  This will get you close to heaven.  Staying here will put you on that stairway.


Sunset Point is perfect for MOM and the KIDS too, and dog friendly.  In addition to Wi-Fi, our upscale clean and modern accommodations also have satellite TV, including the Boathouse.  Note that our cottages are waterfront sunset view, are well separated by lawns and trees and have dock plug-ins.

This is where you explore the wilderness, Mother Nature, beguiling at its finest in comfort and style – The Winnipeg River, Minaki, where five lakes join hands with the river: Big Sand, Little Sand, Gunn Lake, Pistol Lake and Roughrock Lake are all part of the romance of Shield Country. Boreal forest, towering pines, dwarf spruce, glaciated rock and granite cliffs is where you share the voice of eagles and loons, the gathering of great white pelicans, ducks, geese and other bird life plus the footsteps of bear, moose, deer, beaver and otter, AND this is where you battle trophy walleye, musky, northern pike and bass. Please join us for a complimentary shore lunch island cookout. Special!

Turn off the Trans-Canada Highway 1 by-pass at Kenora onto Hwy. 596, a half hour’s scenic drive to the outskirts of Minaki, turn left at Abby Road onto Sunset’s private property (by the radio tower).  This is Sunset Point’s private access road, ¼ mile to our own Landing with boat launch, paved vehicle parking, staging area, 80 ft. dock - less than 5 minutes boat-in to Sunset Point’s Cottages, close to town services. We will MEET YOU at the Landing to help ferry over.


   We  regularly update our Availability Page...feel free to drop us a note ( give us a call if you don't see the dates you would like!
