“"Our Happy Holiday"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

We have travelled extensively through Northern Ontario over the years, but I'd have to say our stay at High Falls rates at the top with the best of them. Wonderfull accomodation and great hospitality in a very scenic environment. It's nice to feel so comfortable in such a relaxing setting where everything is provided. The owners were also very helpful in directing us to the various sightseeing places in the area as well as locations for meals out.

Room Tip: All the cabins have privacy.

Driving across Canada with my kids we decided to call the High Falls Motel instead of camp for the night. It was recommended by another friend. Anna had a cabin for us which was total luxury. The weather turned miserable and as I listened to the pounding rain I was so grateful that this wonderful motel had room for us.
Lovely cabins, even lovelier hosts.

I am from Wawa and go back to visit family. We have stayed other places before and never again. We will definitely stay here again. The owners are fantastic. We stayed in one of the cottages and it was very clean and had everything you need. They even have BBQ's that you can use which we did. It is a great deal.
My only suggestion is hooks in the bathroom would be great to hang things.

Room Tip: Make a reservation as it is a busy place.

My wife and I decided to take a nice leisurely drive around Lake Superior for our Honeymoon. Wawa, Ontario was one of our planned stops. High Falls Cabins and Motel came highly recommended. When I called to check availability, and make a reservation, Anna (one of the owners) asked what was bringing us to Wawa. When I told Anna the reason, she was so happy for us, and congratulated me on our upcoming nuptials. As I told her the dates we would be staying, she noticed that we would be arriving on the day of our 1 month anniversary. To be honest, I had not realized that fact. Anna told me should would put us in cabin #1, a nice romantic cabin with a fireplace.

When we arrived, Anna and her husband Zen, greeted us with warm smiles and open arms. Actually, "King" Edward greeted us first. After talking with Anna for a few minutes, we started to unpack the car. And what should we find in our cabin, but a nice bottle of sparkling wine and a card, a gift from Anna and Zen for our anniversary. This is part of the reason why High Falls is such a wonderful place to stay. To Anna and Zen, you are not simply customers, you are friends.

We spoke to Anna about sights to see, and places to eat. Anna was, to say the least, eagar to take the time to help us out, supplying us with maps of the area, and pointing out the local eateries and points of interest. When we had difficulties getting to the local waterfalls (due to road and bridge construction), Anna helped us with alternate routes to get to our destinations. Some of the alternate routes were a bit rough, but nothing we could not handle in our car. We simply took our time. After all, what was the rush.

If you are looking to stay in Wawa, this is THE place to stay. Period.

I was passing through Wawa on a solo motorcycling trip and spent one night here. I only wished I had the time to stay longer. The hosts were wonderful. I stayed in what they call the "motel" which is three mini cabins attached together. The room was perfect and by far the best place I stayed on my 10 day trip.

Nice and peaceful. Cabins are very clean and spacious. Pet friendly, owners dog Edward became best friends with our dog, Bijou. We were just passing through, but decided to stay two nights going both directions because it is such a nice place. On their outdoor sign we noticed that they received the Trip Advisor Award multiple times...and you will notice why when you stay here! The owners are extremely friendly and accommodating. A must place to stay!

If you want to make the best out of a trip to Lake Superior Provincial Park but are tired of campgrounds, then consider this pretty cluster of cabins and a motel just a short drive from the park's north entrance.
We stayed in one of the cabins for the Canada Day long weekend after the property was recommended to us. We were not disappointed. The cabin was rustic but completely comfortable with two queen beds, kitchenette, cottage-sized fridge and gas stove. The full bath is newly renovated. The cabin also has cable TV and a flat screen TV which we did not use. There was also a nice outdoor porch we didn't use because of this year's crop of voracious blackflies and mosquitoes. The cabin screens kept the bugs out though.
The hosts are very friendly and welcoming as is Edward the now famous terrier. The property is dog-friendly and most of the guests had a pet of some sort so if you are leery of dogs - you have been forewarned.
Unless I want to be very picky, there were no negatives sides to our visit. Yes, there was highway noise but if you select a property next to the Trans-Canada Highway, what are you expecting? We spent the days hiking the Coastal Trail then returned to a hot shower, cold beer and comfortable accommodations. We'll be back.

Room Tip: If you are self-contained, choose a cabin. Restaurants are sparse in Wawa (although there is a Tims...
