We stayed at this motel during our transit from Ottawa to Banff. This is a perfect place off the Highway 17 for a good night's sleep. I have seen several RVs parked guess you can also do camping here. It does have a beautiful water body in front of the rooms. Our room had two bedrooms (4 beds) and it could be really great for family of 4.

We stayed at this place last year and found it adequate for one night while travelling west. We recommended it to friends for their trip this year. I spoke with them after the trip and heard the following. After checking in they went to their cabin. It was filthy, the tv did not work and the water was undrinkable. They made a pot of coffee then went for dinner in Wawa. Over dinner they decided to not stay and move on. They checked out and drove 2 hours to a different place. The next day they noticed a charge on their credit card from Makiebares. When they called back to inquire. They were told that they had stayed for 3 1/2 hours, used the bed and left the place a mess. All not true. They were in cabin 6 which I know from our stay was rented out to construction workers. Bookings.com would not support their complaint. They were ripped off. BEWARE.

Nous avons dormi à cet endroit dans la nuit du 7 au 8 juillet 2016 parce que nous n’avions pas d’autres choix et qu’il était rendu tard le soir et que nous n’avions pas trouvé aucune chambre de libre à Wawa sauf une de type minable dans un motel sans accueil chaleureux. Le propriétaire était sympathique et nous a dit qu’il ne lui restait que la vieille roulotte. Nous l’avons visité brièvement. Les moustiques de tout acabit pullulaient autour et entraient dans la roulotte aussitôt que nous ouvrions la porte. Nous avons facilement négocié un tarif de $50,00 en comptant et nous aurions pu je crois négocier encore à la baisse. L’eau de la douche était tiède et non chaude comme stipulé. La télévision marchait assez pour écouter quelques canaux sans plus. Nous avions le wifi à notre grande surprise. Nous avions une toilette style bol d’avion. Nous avons réussi à dormir ce que nous ne croyions pas être capables de faire. Impossible de s’asseoir dehors avec la belle vue magnifique sur le petit lac à cause des redoutables moustiques. Fallait être mal pris et nous l’étions réellement. Il y avait 4 bouteilles d’eau sur la table car l’eau n’était pas potable. Impossible de se servir non plus de la petite cafetière car il n’y avait rien pour en faire. Nous ne recommandons certainement pas de dormir dans cette roulotte. Le système d’air conditionné fonctionnait apparemment mais je doute fort de la véracité de ce fait. Nous avons dormi sans trop tenter d’améliorer ce pseudo confort car il était très tard et que nous étions épuisés. Le fils du propriétaire a fait son gros possible pour nous faciliter la vie de son mieux sans plus dans ses limites personnelles. Nous somme déguerpis tôt le lendemain matin. Nos photos parlent mieux que nos mots. Avis écrit le 17 juillet 2016 à Salaberry de Valleyfield, Québec, Canada.

Rustic but comfortable. Staff is wonderful and very accommodating. A wonderful weekend getaway. A beautiful view of Cattail Lake from each cabin. Not fancy but cabins are clean and well equipped. A wonderful place for pets as well. Never seen black flies like this. Been here twice and would definitely come back

Very old cabins, no potable water, no air conditioning and it's very hot in July / August in Ontario. Old, low beds, threadbare blankets. Very old, uncomfortable kitchen chairs, no other chairs to sit in to watch TV. I would stay there again. Is a picturesque setting above the lake.
