Stayed in a 3 bedroom chalet in August that was bigger than my house! Easily sleeps 8 people. Giant deck with a large BBQ. Fully equipped with everything imaginable. Very clean. It certainly lives up to all the photos on their website.

My husband, 4 month old daughter and I stayed here twice this month on a trip to Ottawa and back from Thunder Bay. We cannot say enough about this place. It is super clean, has all the comforts of home, is full of character and the owners are very nice and helpful! Would highly recommend this motel for you next... More

This was the fourth time I have stayed there. They were as freindly as the first time. Very clean and quiet accommodations. Easy on and off highway access. Reasonable rates for Canada. Good location for just about anything you could be into! Best to book ahead.

Stayed in a Chalet. Couldn't ask for a better place. Lots of personal touches you won't find in other places. Everything you may need is there. Just pack the food. Very clean and comfortable. The hosts Mo and John are very welcoming and have taken time to make everyone's stay comfortable. Went into the town of Wawa for a few... More

This place is a real gem. We booked one of the chalets since there were five of us travelling and the chalet has three bedrooms. It was like walking into our own home with a large kitchen/dining area and a well appointed family room that had two large leather couches. The decor was exceptional just like a magazine layout.

I've stayed here twice now and have had great experiences both times. Highly recommend this spot if you are visiting or passing through Wawa! Owners are great people and truly understand their business and their market. Tidy accommodations and tonnes of little touches make this place definitely stand out from the rest in the area. Even puts big city accommodations... More

We only spent one night but wish we could have moved into the 3 bedroom chalet. The place was spotless, well stocked with everything from clean towels to kitchen utensils. Felt more at home than any hotel/motel I have ever stayed at. I just wish the location was on waterfront, but hey, you can't have everything. To sum it up............FABULOUS!

Thank you for the great review! We are so happy that you enjoyed your Chalet stay. That means so much to us. I certainly agree that Lakefront would be amazing! We just have to take comfort in knowing that Sandy Beach, a little piece of Lake Superior Heaven, is only 10 minutes away. Please email the next time you are... More

I stayed here on my way from New Brunswick to Alberta. We stayed in one of their chalets and it was amazing! The lady who greeted us at the counter was nice and the chalet was huge. It was very clean and had a full kitchen and living room. If I go through Wawa again I wouldnt stay anywhere else.
