Reviewed October 7, 2011

The Sawpit Bay Motel recently re-opened under new ownership. They have taken what was an old and tired road-side motel, and brought it up to modern, mid-class standards. The motel had to be gutted and rebuilt to meet current fire codes, so everything was new and fresh. We stayed in the larger of the 2 cabins, and it was quite comfortable for a family of 5.
Sawpit Bay refers to the cove in Lake Superior across the highway from the motel. The cove has a very nice, clean sand beach, with rocky headland for exploring. The slope into the (cold!) water is relatively steep, and you will want to watch small children very carefully.
The motel is located on Highway 17, just north of Pancake Bay Provincial Park. The nearest services are at Pancake Bay, and Batchawana Bay. The Sawpit Bay Motel is probably the closest accomodation to the south end of Lake Superior Provincial Park, and the next services travelling north (gas, food, or motel) are in Wawa.
We spent 3 nights there, exploring Lake Superior Park, and the bays and beaches to the south. The Treetop Adventure at Goulais River (-----) was a lot of fun.
Sawpit Bay was a nice base for a family holiday.

Room Tip: The cabins had full kitchens, with all the expected appliances. They would be a better choice if you want to spend a few days exploring the area.
