Together, we have Driven through 9 Provinces and 46 States, staying in Motels/Hotels along the way.
Lucky for us, I knew how to design a website in the 90’s, and was able to get our Motel online when we bought the place.
But the BIG Booking Companies have changed the way people book accommodations. You won’t find us on the Big Booking Sites because we won’t pay them – (Expedia, Hotels, Booking, Trivago, Tripadvisor, etc.).
To continue giving our guests the best rates we can, Reservations are made through our Secure Booking Platform only.
*We were listed on Trivago, #1 in Wawa, but now they ONLY list Accommodations that PAY.
*Tripadvisor’s “Best Value” ranks the Hotels that PAY, highest on the list. (They do not have prices from Hotels that do not pay). We are ranked Tops in “Traveller Ranked”
That award inspired me to paint our own Billboards. 😃
We’ve enjoyed Semi Retirement for the past 15 Years (7 months off a year). We still live here year round. We renovate and enjoy the wildlife. Our property is a Wildlife Sanctuary and a bag of peanuts lasts us 2 Days! LOL!
We feed dozens of squirrels and hundreds of birds. I post tons of photos on Facebook.

I grew up in Sault Ste Marie, ON, John grew up in the Toronto area. We both moved to Edmonton, and met in 1982 at the Convention Inn Hotel (Now the Delta Inn South). I worked at the Top of the Inn Dining Room for 20 Years. John, the Executive Chef of the Hotel worked there for 16 Years. What an amazing time that was!
In 1999, we moved back to Ontario to be closer to our families. (My parents live in Sault Ste Marie, and John’s parents retired in Elliot Lake). We were open Year Round for the first 5 years 1999-2005. We were BLESSED to have my Mom & Dad take care of the Motel for us twice a year. We were able to continue travelling and add to our Casino Chip Collection.
In the early Snowmobiling years, there wasn’t Snow information on the Internet for Snowmobilers. So I had a ton of fun measuring snow for all of our valued Snowmobiling Guests. I ran the “Snow Cam” on my Website for decades.

We look forward to having you stay with us in 2019! (Our 20th Season!)
