Sustainability Mission Statement:

Pleasantview Lodge sits in the heart of a rugged, undisturbed landscape. Perched over the pristine waters of Brule Lake, it is our mission to protect our environment and restore the biodiversity on our land. Ensuring sustainability is at the heart of each decision we make.

Sustainability Approach:

  • As a Certified Wildlife Friendly Habitat certified by both the Canadian Wildlife Federation as well as the National Wildlife Federation, our property is maintained to promote safe spaces for all beneficial critters to live and raise their young.
  • We avoid the use of pesticides, herbicides and other harmful chemicals.
    • We use plants and habitat to attract natural predators of mosquitoes and black flies.
  • Replacing turf grass with drought-resistant native plants and ground cover to eliminate wasteful watering as well as attract pollinators
  • Fostering the growth of pollinator gardens and actively working to eradicate invasive species
  • Leaving natural areas in their natural state with fallen leaves and branches
    • for guest safety we move fallen branches in recreational areas to a brush pile or “habitat pile” which provides homes to wildlife and beneficial insects
  • Maintain natural shoreline vegetation and native aquatic vegetation
  • LED, motion sensor and solar lighting to reduce energy consumption
  • Dual brightness motion sensor lighting outdoors to preserve the dark skies and minimize impact on migrating birds
  • Prioritize recycling, waste reduction and discourage use of single-use plastics
  • Using biodegradable cleaning products
  • Paperless advertising and switching to paperless billing
  • Our website uses an Eco-friendly host
  • Aim to source our supplies responsibly and shop local whenever possible
  • Educating others on the importance of fostering biodiversity and protecting the environment
  • Volunteering in the community during the off-season
  • Supporting The Canadian Wildlife Federation through charitable contributions

  • Due to our remote location, very limited WiFi is available in and around the Lodge building.  As a result, guests may not use WiFi to stream movies or download large files.
  • There is limited cell signal around the property. We have a cell phone booster in The Lodge where you will find the strongest signal.
