About Us

Flag Island Resort is a premier full-service family-owned and operated year-round hunting and fishing resort on Lake of the Woods, one of the largest freshwater lakes in the world. From our location, you have easy access to both Minnesota and Canadian waters, all 65,000 miles of shoreline. Walleye, northern, crappie, bass, and musky await in abundance and is sure to test your angling skills. From June through October Musky is a popular trophy.

One of the many highlights of your summer vacation stay with us will be your noon shore lunch. Prepared expertly by your fishing guide, the shore lunch features fish from the morning’s catch as well as fried potatoes and beans all prepared over an open fire. Shore lunch cost is $12 per person.  After your fishing excursion, don’t worry about all of the fish you caught. Your guide will clean and package your fish for you while you rest and relax. In fact, it will be delivered right to your cabin.

In the wintertime we offer permanent heated ice house rentals with heated transportation to and from the house and bait in MN.

Flag Island Resort offers seventeen comfortable cabins, two of which are duplexes with the option of being conjoined, along with many other amenities. We offer standard lodging plans as well as the American Plan, which includes all of your meals.

In our historic lodge, you will find a full-service restaurant and bar. The restaurant is open from 7 am until 8:30 pm Sunday-Thursday and until 9pm Friday-Saturday. Fresh homemade pizzas are available until last call.  Bar hours are 7am-11pm Sunday-Thursday and midnight Friday-Saturday. Although, if we are not busy we may close sooner. Restaurant and bar are open to guests and the public. You will also find a tackle shop where you can purchase hot jigs, tackle, tools, toiletries you may have forgotten, apparel, etc…

You will come as a guest and leave as a friend and we would love to have you visit soon!

Meet the Owners

Flag Island Resort changed ownership January of 2016 to Chuck and Andrea Haggenmiller; below is a quick note from them.

We would like to introduce ourselves, Chuck and Andrea Haggenmiller, owners and management of Flag Island Resort. The resort business has always been a dream of ours and as of January 2016 our dream became a reality!

Before the resort life we co-owned a lumber yard in Arlington, MN with Chuck’s brother. When we decided to make the career change our oldest son, Spencer took over shares in the family business.

Our goal is to put fish in your boat (or bucket) and a smile on your face and we would love to have you in camp! Feel free to call or email us anytime!

Best Wishes,

Chuck and Andrea

Mick and Sherry Messelt became co-owners in August of 2018. Here is a little note from them:

Mick and I have enjoyed spending weekends at the lake for 25+ years and have jokingly talked about owning a resort someday. We started coming up to ‘The Angle’ a few years prior and fell in love with the area and the people. It became harder and harder to leave on Sunday nights. This dream became a reality when Chuck and Andrea asked us to become partners. After a lot go soul-searching conversations, we decided to go for it. We both left successful careers, I am a Registered Nurse and Mick is an electrician, but it has been a great adventure so far. We would like to thank our families and friends for their support in our new venture, especially our two daughters, Mackenzie and Leah. Our goal is to meet as strangers but leave as family!
