About Us 


The Brown Family 


To Our Valued Guests,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of our guests for joining us this past 2018 season to help celebrate our family’s 40th anniversary with Totem Resorts – you truly made it a season to remember!

With the economy now regaining it’s strength – we saw so many return guests this past season that had not visited since the big hit to the US economy back in 2008. Without a doubt – this past 2018 season was the best we’ve had in 10 years and we’re excited to see so many familiar faces returning – not to mention all the new faces & friends we had the opportunity of hosting as well!  With so many guests and corporate groups already booked in for their 2019 trips - we take pride in our 90% return rate and thank all our many guests for their continued loyalty & patronage!

We believe that the key to our success lies in striving for a level of quality and service that not only meets but exceeds our guests every expectation! We have a full staff at each of our Lodges dedicated to making every aspect of your trip absolutely perfect! From our Guests Services staff, Dock Hands, Professional Guides, World Class Chef’s and Service Teams – we’ve got you covered!

Our goal has always been to make Totem Resorts exclusive, comfortable and affordable to all our guests and our New All Inclusive rates do just that! We’ve never claimed to be the cheapest Lodge around, nor are we the most expensive – however we do pride ourselves on being the absolute best! We pride ourselves in having the very best professional fishing guides, boats & motors, our world famous Shore lunches, 5 Star accommodations and services  - not to mention world class fresh water fishing! With custom built packages to suit any needs and budget – we’ve got a package for everyone!

As a father who took the Lodge over 41 years ago from my own father – I’m proud beyond what words can express to have my own family active in so many roles within our 4 locations over the years! It’s really a dream come true for me to have the unique opportunity to work together, strive towards goals together and share in our successes together! I very much look forward to having my 3 grandchildren involved once they’re grown and keep the Brown Family Tradition alive!

Thank you again to all of our guests – you help make Totem Resorts what we are today and we’re very much looking forward to seeing you all again for another exciting season in 2019!

Sincerely,
Eric R. Brown
