Hello, and thanks for reading our blog! We’re Desi and Derrick Uniat, two of the closest brothers you’ll ever meet. When we were 5, our grandfather shared an amazing place in northern Saskatchewan with us—Lloyd Lake. We dreamed about owning the lodge ever since that first visit.

During childhood summers on the water, we learned about life from grandpa and nature from our guides. On September 30, 2011, it al came together. We bought Lloyd Lake Lodge. Grandpa made it all happen for us, but passed away 5 days before we made the final deal. Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you when you think everything is okay, and of helping you out when you think everything’s gone wrong.

We’ve dreamed a pretty big dream, and now it’s in our hands to make it come true. Follow along on our journey as we put the lodge to rights and share our piece of paradise with some lucky guests.
