Information About Mylie's Place Resort on Lake of the Woods

A Brief History
Mylie Gaudry fulfilled a dream in 1959 when he purchased Fred's Place from Fred Vauthey in 1959.  A few years later, he renamed the business Mylie's Place Resort. The 2009 season marked the 50th anniversary of Mylie's purchase of the resort. 
The Gaudry Family has owned and operated Mylie's Place Resort for 40 of the last 50 years.  Mylie passed away in November 2007, but the legacy he left behind will live on as long as the resort that carries his name continues to offer great fishing vacation opportunities on Lake of the Woods.

In 1992, when ownership of Mylie's Place reverted back to Mylie Gaudry after 10 years out of the family, Daryl (Mylie's second oldest son) jumped at the chance to own and operate the resort that he worked at during his formative years.  Ellen and number 1 son Justin have been taking care of resort guests with a level of service and commitment that has helped create a loyal, growing customer base.  Ellen manages the office and oversees everything.

When Daryl took over ownership of the resort in 1992, it had been out of the family for 10 years and was badly in need of some TLC.  The first upgrade was done the following year in the form of a new sewer and septic system.  Over the years, each and every cabin was stripped down to the bare studs so it could be renovated and upgraded inside.  Once the insides were up to standards, the outsides were improved with vinyl siding.  Maintenance and improvements are still being made on a regular basis in the form of new beds, flooring, A/C units, etc.  Docks were built, repaired and maintained on a regular basis until we installed our floating dock system early in the new millennium.  The floating docks have been a wonderful upgrade and we continue to maintain them to find better and stronger ways to anchor them so that they can withstand some of the strong winds that come from the northeast on occasion.

In 2012, Daryl decided to leave the business and is no longer part of the resort.   Since then, Justin has taken over as the official operator with the long term plan being that this would indeed be his life's work.   Ellen continues to be the heart and soul of the resort and we hope that doesn't change anytime soon. Mother and Son look forward to continuing the tradition of providing a comfortable place for guests to enjoy their fishing trips to Lake of the Woods.     

We sincerely hope that your first trip to Mylie's Place will make you want to continue enjoying the great Canadian experience that only Lake of the Woods can provide.  Our goal has always been to provide the type of service and attention that will allow first time customers that may have arrived as strangers, to depart as friends and return as members of the Mylie's Place family.

What Does Mylie's Place Resort Have to Offer?
Lake of the Woods is rarely a tough sell when it comes to fishing and hunting.  It is one of the best known lakes and one of the greatest fisheries in the world.  Whether you are considering the more than 14,000 islands or the 65,000 miles of shoreline, it's sure to have something for every outdoor sportsman and sportswoman.  We cater to every type of angler.  Family trips, buddy trips, and father/son trips are just a few of the combinations we have had numerous times over the years.  We have built Mylie's Place so that it can be enjoyed by everyone; from the youngest members of the family to the oldest and everyone in between.

Some of the things you can expect from Mylie's Place besides dedicated staff are:

  • LAKE OF THE WOODS!!!  Huge muskies, trophy pike, big walleyes, slab crappies, giant smallmouth, jumbo perch, lake trout, ducks, deer and some of the best scenery & nature viewing in the world.
