Shake-up at Mahkwa Lodge???

2 posts in this topic

I think there may have been some "shaking-up" at Mahkwa Lodge.

Ever since Roger stepped down a few years ago, the place has been taking a nosedive in quality and service. This year was seriously their last chance before our large party began looking for alternatives.

Well I'm happy to report that things at Mahkwa seem to be looking up. It was quite obvious to our party of 13 that there was a notable uptick in service in every aspect this year. We couldn't help but notice that it seemed like someone is finally being held accountable for customer service after a few years of declining.

The meals were more prompt and efficient. The dockhand was actually jogging back and forth from pumping gas to getting receipts. He came over when we were almost done cleaning fish and offered to spray down and clean the cutting table for us. Room cleaners were conscientious. A few minor problems were addressed immediately. We noticed new docks across the bay in the housekeeping cabins. Sprucing-up around the grounds and buildings. Wi-Fi actually worked everywhere on the grounds. If you've been there in the past few years, you know all of these aspects have been suffering from a general lack of interest on the part of the employees.

I couldn't be more pleased to announce that at least for now, it seems like someone is taking charge and taking pride in good customer service at Mahkwa Lodge. It's still fish-camp, not a hotel. Cabins are rustic - nothing special. We're not there for luxury accommodations - just excellent fishing, a place to stay, a acceptable customer service. We will be returning next year, and hope to see the trend continue. They have a beautiful setting, perfect fishing, and a wonderful opportunity to build the reputation and revenue for the tribe, if they'd only continue to do a few things consistently right.

Heard through the grapevine that Roger Bull is in charge again at Mahkwa. Anyone able to confirm this? It would be great news if true.

    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
