We have stayed at the Northern Lights Motel in Wawa a few times over the last 30 years, but our last visit was a wonderfully unexpected surprise. Fabulous updated facilities, with lots of creative extras that our family thoroughly enjoyed. Our hosts even provided fresh baked berry tarts in the morning as we were departing. This will be one of... More

After an extremely poor experience the night before, it wouldn't have taken much to please us. However, the Northern Lights was hands-down, over-the-top the best locally-owned lodging we have ever been to, and we've been to many all across the US and Canada. This even beats many chain hotels. The room had 2 beds, a kitchenette table with 4 chairs,... More

Very well equipped cottage with lots of attention given to the details that make it easy for guests. The kitchen has everything one could possibly need. Very clean rooms. Like most accommodation along this Lake Superior route, the rooms are just off the highway and trucks do run by all night long so you need to either close the windows... More

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.

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.
