About Us


We’re Andy McDonnell and Ada Igoe. “Born and raised,” as they say; we both grew up outside of Grand Marais, MN and spent our childhoods in the woods. We reconnected after college when we both worked at the same Gunflint Trail outfitters for a summer. Since then, we’ve been making our lives together on the Gunflint Trail, helping people discover and explore the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, Quetico Provincial Park, Superior National Forest, and Gunflint Trail. We love using our local knowledge to help you create your best canoe trip or cabin getaway ever. We look forward to meeting you!


As you make your way down our scenic driveway, you will be deeper in the woods than most people ever get. Your northwoods experience will have begun. Our location provides easy access to some of the most remote areas in this Minnesota-Canadian Wilderness  You can paddle away from our docks on Round Lake or Saganaga, or we will transport you to one of several entry points in our area.  We’ll help to customize a canoe trip for you.

When you drive into Tuscarora, you will see immaculate grounds that indicate the kind of care and attention that we put into everything:  we care about these northwoods, we care about the quality and condition of your equipment, most importantly, we care about you and your trip.
