About Sunset Lodge

Sunset Lodge is a family owned resort located in a very unique part of the country. Our remote location provides us with a truly remote experience for our guests & employees. In order to drive to us, you must cross through Canada and drop back down into Minnesota. You are then picked up there via boat and brought 5 miles over to us on Oak Island! Our employees enjoying FISHING during the summer and winter seasons. We have a great family atmosphere and we also enjoy bonfires, camping, hanging out on the deck watching the sunset over Sunset Bay, playing horseshoes, visiting neighboring islands, etc. 

The Employee Experience

Sunset Lodge employs between 10-15 staff members during both winter and summer seasons. Our island is accessible via ice road and groomed snowmobile trail in the winter with an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors in a remote and pristine environment.  Staff are encouraged to fish out of any of our 17 hard-sided ice houses or to explore on their own; Oak Island has many trails for trekking or snowshoeing. Guests travel from all over the world to fish in the Walleye Capital of the world and we strive to provide top notch service and to make their experience unforgettable. 

Ideal Candidate

Our ideal candidate is someone who can provide great customer service and is also willing to help in any aspect of the resort. Since all members of the staff live on property, it is important that you as an individual are reliable and willing to go the extra mile to help the team. All positions interact with guests so the ability to be cheerful and accommodating is a must. 

Room and Board

Room & board are free! We provide dorm-style housing (shared room/bathroom) with DirecTV and WiFi resort-wide. 

Employee Perks

All positions are able to receive tips.

Rental boats are available for employee use at $25/day vs $175/day for guests.

Employees receive 10% off at our Sunset Lodge Store (bait, tackle, apparel, etc...). 

Employees receive 25% off of menu items in addition to 3 free meals per day.

Immediate family members of employees receive a 25% discount off of lodging and meals!

Getting Here and Getting Around

Most employees drive to Angle Inlet, MN and pay to park their vehicles there during the season. (Safe & affordable). We shuttle them back and forth from Oak Island to Angle Inlet (about 5 miles). If they travel on our normal trips there is no charge. If we need to make a special trip, it's $35. During ice-in (winter), there is an ice road over to us so SUV's/pickups are able to be parked right at Sunset Lodge.

For Fun

Lake of the Woods is famed for its untouched nature, as well as its history.  Fishing is the main attraction, however, there is plenty of other activities to keep our staff occupied. In the winter we enjoy fishing, snowmobiling and exploring on the ice road. In the summer there are many islands to explore in addition to fishing and water sports.
