We stayed in the motel one night on our way through town. Wawa was beautiful with a gorgeous lake front. But so many of the businesses were closed. There isn't a lot to do beyond enjoying the outdoor lifestyle. Very limited restaurants etc. I wouldn't vacation in the area beyond a weekend. The Motel was clean, the staff friendly, the... More

The motel room we stayed in had two beds. The room also had a table with 4 chairs. The table was nice to have to eat at or play a card game at. In addition the room had two comfortable chairs and table between them to watch television in.

I pulled in yesterday afternoon, entered the office, and was cordially greeted by 'Mo' who said they were full, BUT. . .because I had stayed here before and I was alone she offered the little 'house' . . . and at a motel room rate! How kind and generous, I thought. It is indeed my home away from home and... More

I read other reviews on this motel on TripAdvisor before I stayed here and holy cr&p they were on point! Someone said they made reservations and got upgraded to a chalet when they arrived. Same exact thing happen to me. My parents and I arrived at the motel, walked in, rang the bell and Maureen walked in to the desk... More

After a terrible stay at the Valhalla in Thunder Bay we were keeping our fingers crossed that Northern Lights was as good as everyone on TripAdvisor said. We weren't disappointed, as soon as I opened the door to the cottage I could see why everyone was giving it such excellent reviews. The 2 bedroom cottage was sparkling clean, nicely decorated,...

On a recent trip in Ontario, my husband and I stopped at this motel after finding no vacancies in the previous town. We sure were glad we did! What a quaint little place, with absolutely everything you could possibly need for a relaxing stay. We liked it so much we decided to stay again on our return trip a few... More

My girlfriend and I were planning a motorcycle trip to Thunder Bay. I decided to try this motel based on the reviews of others. We arrived in the evening after a long day of riding. Maureen was very pleasant to deal with upon arrival. The motel room was amazing. It was so clean and fresh smelling. The owners have gone... More

From the moment we arrived, we knew we found a gem, thanks to TripAdvisor! We were greeted by Maureen with a cheery smile and an intro to all the local amenities and map of local sights. The 2-bedroom chalet was truly a home away from home: so clean it truly sparkled, equipped to the smallest detail including band aids. Books,... More

I have never taken the time to write a review before but I felt this place deserved it! Upon our arrival we were super hungry and the owners were happy to tell us about all the places to eat in town, what delivers, what is fancy if we feel, and even accommodated us with forks and knives when the place...

I loved my stay. It was warm, friendly, clean, with good internet, with good breakfast. I especially love how they put a lot of thought and care in everything. Little notes on everything and free souvenirs in the breakfast room.
