Nestor Falls, Sioux Narrows, CanadaWe’re North of Nestor Falls, Ontario, Canada, about 75 miles from the U.S. Border on highway 71.  We’re minutes south of the Sioux Narrows.  Upon arrival at our mainland dock, you’ll take a short 20-minute ferry ride in our pontoon or your boat to our private island in the center of Whitefish Bay on Lake of the Woods.

Muskie Bay Resort Hwy 71 Sioux Narrows-Nestor Falls P0X1K0 I have heard rumors of folks being concerned about returning to the U.S. after their trip to Canada, so I called the U.S. Customs office in International Falls. The officer stated that they cannot deny U.S. citizens re-entry into their own country so that should not been an issue. If anyone has questions and wants to talk with a customs officer, the International Falls number is (218) 283-2541 and the Baudette number is (218) 634-2803.I am sure there will still be more clarifications as we go forward but this is basically the gist of the information. It is confusing if you look online as it appears that some information has been updated please do not hesitate to contact us 1-807-271-1625.
