Our Story

Nestled between the lush, rolling hills of the Margaree Highlands and the beautiful Margaree River, lies the Big Intervale Fishing Lodge. The Lodge itself was built in the 1970's, first as a private home and then transitioning into "the Salmon Camp", as it is fondly referred to by locals, in 1997. 

In 1997, Ruth and Hermann Schneeberger immigrated from Switzerland and purchased the property. Over the years, the Big Intervale Fishing Lodge has attracted fishermen and women from across the globe, all itching to fish one of North America's finest Atlantic Salmon Rivers. 

The lodge has experienced numerous changes over the years. They went from a "party line" to high speed internet. From a seasonal operation to a year round business.

The 20 years since purchasing the property were filled with many happy events, as well as bumpy experiences -- mirroring the Big Intervale road in the spring time. However, they have never regretted their decision. They not only created a home and operate an immensely successful business, but they have also found a beautiful community for their children to grow up in, and a paradise they love to share with their customers.
