The Stan Clan Takes Over

January 17, 2019 | 697 Views

The Outpost, a popular getaway for private groups


Set at the edge of pristine rainforest on the sheltered waters of Port Louis, The Outpost has been welcoming exclusive groups for years, including business colleagues, friends and family members who return annually looking for some fun and privacy in the great outdoors.

Bob Stan and his wife Kathryn discovered the unique aspects of The Outpost when they visited for the first time together back in 2010. Ever since then, they and a group of family and friends – some from as far back as university days – have been taking over the entire lodge for a few days every summer.

“The group does not change much from year to year so it is very comfortable for everyone to be together at The Outpost, whether we are picking a partner for the next day’s fishing or telling fish stories and enjoying a beverage in the hot tub,” says Bob. “All the folks like the fact we are on our own, familiar with the drill and able to experience the terrific fishing and breathtaking scenery with people they really like and who they really feel comfortable with.”

With capacity for just 14 guests, The Outpost offers all the refined services and amenities that have become The Club’s trademark, but in an intimate and ultra-private setting. And with no other lodges in the vicinity, guests are not likely to see anybody on the water save for other members of their group. Perhaps best of all, Bob’s group – affectionately dubbed “the Stan Clan” by staff at the lodge – likes being able to customize their trip, especially at meal times.

“Because we take the entire lodge, we are largely able to set our own schedule for fishing and meals. We also appreciate that the kitchen staff is always very accommodating. We all really enjoy fish and we have quite a few foodies in the group, so over the years they have shared a lot of kitchen preparation secrets and hands-on demonstrations with the group.”

Customize your dining schedule to fit the needs of your private group.

The Outpost is the perfect getaway with the lodge being tucked away amongst the beautiful ancient rainforest of Haida Gwaii.

Food and beverage service can indeed be customized to group preferences, including the option to have lunch served on a deserted beach with only the sound of waves, eagles and laughter among friends who know they are sharing something truly extraordinary. For some, it’s a bucket list experience, but for the Stan Clan, it’s an annual get-together that takes high priority, including female members who have only recently discovered the exhilaration of salmon fishing.

“I think many people think of this type of expedition as a ‘boys’ trip,’ but we have always believed that everyone enjoys fishing when you are catching a lot of spring salmon so we have invited wives and significant others to join us. The entire staff at The Outpost go out of their way to make everyone in our group feel very comfortable and respond to any needs they may have.”
