We had a family gathering for my mothers 85th birthday and everyone thorougly enjoyed themselves. The staff was wonderful and the meal we had fantastic! We had a great time out in the voyageur canoe. The relaxed attitude of the staff to our numerous requests was greatly appreciated and sitting on the deck under the stars was so relaxing. Dinner at the Great Northern on highway 17 was excellant and the European Birthday Cake was delicious. All told a great time was had by all!!

We stayed overnight here at the start of our kayak journey along the shores of Lake Superior Provincial Park. The staff were courteous, helpful and friendly. Dave sat with me to give me tips and information about highlights of the park, which were very helpful. The room was clean. There was no TV, which only added to the charm of being in this Lodge. We would certainly recommend this.

Stayed here with our two young daughters and loved it. Position is truly beautiful and it is such a quiet location. This is not a 5 star resort nor does it pretend to be. If you expect basic accomodation in a beautiful position, with helpful, relaxed staff, then you will be very happy here. We stayed in the Patterson room and thing that this is probably the best room, with its own patio. It was my wife's birthday while we were there and, at my request, they made her a lovely birthday and we had a very nice dinner on the beach; my wife was very happy.

The accommodation was good. No hair dryers. The hot breakfast promised when reservations were made, did not appear. Our host was more interested in kayak participants than lodge guests. However, the views from our room were great.

Room Tip: Provide hair dryers and cook some eggs for breakfast.

The lodge is set in a picture perfect location. Nestled on the rocks where Michipicoten River and Lake Superior meet. The rooms are modestly decorated but comfortable. The staff are friendly and very helpful and the lodge offers a large selection of canoes and kayaks to rent from.

Room Tip: There aren't many rooms so book early.

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at the lodge and it was the best! We've been married for four years and this summer, we are thinking of coming back.

So many wonderful memories of kayaking down the river, seeing a black baby bear, eagles...such tranquility.

We bought a camera in Wawa and captured some of the most beautiful photos. I've recently taken up water coloring again and have found inspiration from these photos.

It's not a fancy building, but it's cozy and clean. The grounds are beautiful and the staff are great. No complaints here. I can't wait to return:)
