While en route from the Northwest Territiories back to Toronto, we stayed at the Northern Lights Motel and Chalets in Wawa. While we had booked a cabin, when we checked in, we were upgraded to a 3-bedroom, 2-storey chalet with deck and barbecue. No increase in price. We were only able to stay for one night, but it was lovely.... More

Details in the rooms were well done. Room to sit and have coffee or supper at our table. Asked for a microwave and one was provided. NOTE: limited electric service means you cannot run many things at once or you trip the breaker which covers 2 rooms ( we tripped it!). It is along the highway and noisy - use... More

After a nasty rainy, sometime torrential, day of driving along Lake Superior we were extremely happy to arrive at this oasis in Wawa. Having stayed in Wawa several times over the past years we have now discovered a new and lasting resting place to stay. Due to a change of plans we rebooked, no problems there, except all the rooms... More

We are so happy that you enjoyed the cottage! So sorry about the Tea selection. We usually have Regular Tea in the baskets, but our supplier, of 16 years, simply cannot send us Individually wrapped bags this season? They keep sending us boxes of loose teabags that I can't put in the baskets. We complain, we reorder, to no avail.... More

We rented the 3 br Chalet during our Circle Tour trip Labor Day week. The cabin was very nicely appointed, lots of very nice extras! Highly recommend. Really appreciated the three ring binder of local places to eat.

Had a long drive from Thunder Bay to Wawa. From previous reviews, this is a popular stopover on the Lake Superior Circle Tour, and our journey was no exception. Checked in at about 5:00 pm on a Sunday. The owner greeted me and I asked about where the local beer store was. Hey, I wanted to fit in like a... More

We stayed here while driving the Lake Superior Circle Tour. Room was clean, decorated nicely with cute drawings and such from the owner. Convenient off the highway. Maybe a bit of traffic noise, but we were tired and didn't notice it much through the night. We would stay here again!

Our stay at Northern Lights was delightful. We had booked a regular room, but upon check-in, the owner, Mo, offered us the Chalet at no exra cost. The Chalet was more than comfortable with a full kitchen, a beautiful living room with two large leather couches. Upstairs there were three bedrooms that would accomodate 9 people. This would be a...

After a long drive from Fort Frances, we came upon this motel along the highway just outside Wawa. We were told there was one chalet left, which we required as we were one couple and a sister.
