Meet the Owners

Meet Kelly & Andrea Littlechilds, owners of Arctic Lodges. With a passion for the outdoors paralleled by the strive for exceptional customer service they invite you to share the beauty and warm Canadian hospitality their lodge has to offer.

So how long have you been doing this? A common question we are asked! The lodge was purchased by Kelly and his parents, Ray & Jan Littlechilds, in 2003 from the original owners, Fred (late) and Linda Lockhardt. Ray Littlechilds was a conservation officer on Reindeer Lake for 3 years back in the 80’s where he got to know the Lockhardt’s and the legendary Reindeer Lake. It was a dream of Ray’s to own a cabin on Reindeer Lake after residing in Kinoosao with his family while working as an officer. When he heard Arctic Lodges was for sale he saw an opportunity. In 2014, Kelly and Andrea fully took over operations of the lodge.
