Corporate Events and Team Building
A Truly Northern Ontario Experience. (May 21 - October 16, 2016)
Missing some ADVENTURE in your corporate retreats? Has getting people to attend, particularly the ones you really want, become increasingly challenging each year? Marten River Lodge is located in Northeastern Ontario, Temagami (Near North) approximately 4 hours north of Toronto, Ontario (take me to a map).
Same faces. Same places. Same old stories. Your big annual event isn’t top-of-mind anymore and people’s hearts just aren’t in it. What to do?
We can help. At Marten River Lodge, we specialize in creating lasting memories that revitalize faces, explore new places and inspire stories to reinvigorate hearts and minds. We provide unique and memorable experiences as part of organizations’ marketing, employee and private club activities.

Complete with beach, waterfront deck, fire pits, lounge with bar and games room, 30-seat dining room, our full fleet of boats and UTVs and nine fully appointed and spotlessly clean cabins, MRL is ideally suited for many types of group events.

MRL has had the privilege of hosting both domestic and international groups from as small as 10 people to 65 and more – each with their own special needs and purpose. Combined with our back lake and wilderness adventure packages and exquisite dining experiences, our corporate and group events can be customized to deliver exceptional value and an incomparable retreat experience.
MRL is located just 30 minutes north of North Bay, Ontario near the intersection of highways 11 and 64, making it easy to get to us from major centres in Ontario. It’s an easy 4-hour drive from Toronto, 4.5 hours from Ottawa and 1.5 hours from Sudbury. For those who choose to fly, we are a 30 minute drive from the North Bay International Airport. If required, we would be happy to arrange local ground transportation too for your convenience.
Though most of our corporate and group events guests come purely to enjoy camaraderie, team building and the great outdoors, we have facilitated business meetings in our lodge as well – complete with A/V facilities. If you have special needs for conducting a meeting during your stay, let us know and we’ll work with you for a successful outcome.
While we are not licensed, our bar is fully equipped and we can stock it according to your requirements before you arrive so you can host your own private self-serve bar service. Guests are also welcome to bring their drinks into our dining room to enjoy with their meal.
Our Master Chef is accustomed to tailoring a menu to varying tastes and needs. We will meet with you to plan all your meals in advance of your visit and can also address any allergies or special meal requirements you may have in your group. Buffet service is also a popular option where group size exceeds our dining seating capacity. And the food – well, let’s just say that we always exceed guest expectations.
Daily maid service is provided as part of our full American plan program so your group can enjoy the most from their stay and come home to a clean cabin and freshly made bed. Fresh linens, bedding, towels, bathroom tissue, bar and hand soaps are all included.
If your group includes individuals who do not have Ontario Outdoor Cards, Fishing Licenses or Boat Operator’s Cards, we can look after those arrangements for you, making it completely turn-key for your guests to enjoy their outdoor adventure. And if there are some who do not have their own fishing gear, we have extra rods and reels available on site.
And of course, if you and your party absolutely must stay connected while you’re with us, free Wi-fi is available in the lodge and throughout most of the camp for your convenience. We also have excellent cell service throughout the camp and in the surrounding areas.
Your corporate or group event at MRL can be fully customized and can be organized over a stay of your choosing. We can combine our popular guided back lake fishing trips and shore lunch with other activities you may have in your plans. These trips are extremely popular and go a long way to building strong bonds and lasting memories with your clients, employees or group members.
Groups of 25 or more can enjoy full exclusivity of all camp amenities. With sufficient advance booking, we will close the camp to individual bookings for the duration of your stay giving you and your party the entire camp, our dedicated staff and all our facilities to enjoy unencumbered by other guests.
Once you host an annual event at MRL, we know you and your group will want to return each year. In fact, for some of our return clients, we provide free storage for their fishing, rain gear and other equipment they use during their stay. It’s another example of how we go the extra mile to ensure your time with us is optimized for enjoyment and success.
If you’re looking for something new and different and want to offer your customers, employees or members a memorable experience they will talk about for years – call us. We’ll be pleased to tailor an adventure program to meet your needs.
