We paid for an housekeeping room, because we had changed our date, and that is all they had. No big deal. but the air conditioning was so loud it kept me awake all most all night. But because it was 32 C when we went to bed, did not want to be too hot all night. The room was fine, clean and as they said and showed just across from Lake Superior.

This friendly lodge is conveniently located just off the hwy and my expectations were met completely! We arrived needing gas and the pumps had a full time attendant. He went back to his little rocking chair and was helpful in every way possible, directing us where to check-in and made sure we were given our breakfast bags for our early morning departure. Their restaurant was closed due to Co-vid but we ordered our food and ate in our room at our cute and durable little wooden table. Fresh Whitefish and fries and a yummy apple fritter! The room was perfect and clean. Thanks for a great experience!

Lovely place to stop for the night in Northern Ontario. Food at the cookhouse was also great - enjoyed both dinner and breakfast there. Rooms are basic, but comfy and great views of Lake Superior. Check in was a bit slow - due to COVID restrictions and the fact that check in and the restaurant are one and the same. But worth the wait. Definitely need to reserve - and would be smart to reserve dinner as well - as they did have to shut down the take out orders due to high demand. Grabbed a famous apple fritter to go - was still warm!

This was probably the best roadside accommodation we had during our cross-Canada drive. The room decor was homey but fresh and new. The bed was a big narrow for 2, but the mattress was good. The restaurant was excellent, especially the lake fish dishes. The staff were very pleasant and serious about COVID protocols. The location is convenient to Lake Superior Park, and the surroundings are nice, right on the lake front. Book ahead in high season.

The staff here is rude and the futon in the housekeeping unit was terrible. The sound of the hi-way is very loud and it’s hard to get a good sleep. The rooms were clean but very poorly supplied. Only thing that’s good here is the apple fritters!!

The Voyageur's is strategically located at "dinner time" on the drive from Thunder Bay to The Soo. Roughly half way from Wawa to Sault Ste Marie, on Hwy 17 at Batchawana Bay, it is obviously a local favourite. Reservations recommended. Fridays offer "all you can eat" Whitefish, fresh from Lake Superior across the highway from the lodge. The fish was very well prepared, and paired with fresh cut fries, and a tasty coleslaw. Warning: Save room for dessert! The blueberry crumble is made with wild blueberries from Wawa and a pastry crust made in house. The apple fritters are a fan favourite, and the maple butter tarts (with or without raisins) are also well known.

Stopped onna fall color tour of the area. Good food...french fries with gravy was already a favorite for some in our group and were a hit for others! The chili was also good. The theme and decor were interesting.

Stopped in for food and fuel. Super friendly service all around and the owner pumps your gas. That's a treat for sure. Great food and full service for treats, booze, snacks, smoked fish and OH Those Fritters. They are awesome. Ate the fritters at the picnic table overlooking the Bay. Will definitely be back.
