About John and May
John and May purchased Oak Lake Lodge in 1999 after selling their construction business. Running Oak Lake Lodge meant that John could spend more time with his family than was possible with his construction business. The construction business meant a lot of travel which separated him from friends and family. Running a boutique lodge is a lot of work but it allowed John to bring together many of his passions: family, friends, fishing and hunting.
Anyone who has met John and May know that they make time for other people. It is for this reason that one of the top compliments about Oak Lake Lodge is the hospitality. John and May are truly genuine people and you will feel that when you visit.
John and May also feel blessed to be surrounded by excellent staff most of whom have been with John and May since 1999.
John has been studying music in a the last few years which he finds relaxing both during the hectic summer months at the lodge, as well as the long winters in his hometown.
May also runs a successful business called Laser Plus Clinic.
They are both dedicated to family and friends and when the same guests return to Oak Lake Lodge year after year, it is a real pleasure for May and John. They seen children become adults over the years of family trips.
