But seriously, ride your bike up, get a pic and post it on your social media. You’ll get tons of comments from people who’ve “been there,” and even more from people who want to know “where is that?”

    Great place for our family of four. The room was really clean and the bathroom looked brand new. Staff and owners very friendly and accommodating. Best part, the motel is right next to a playground so entertaining our 2 year old was easy. I would stay here again.

    I was dreading the thought of looking for a room in Wawa on a Sunday night but we were too tired to keep driving. I chose this Motel after reading so many positive reviews. It is gem! Don't let the rustic appearance of the rooms fool you. The decor is not old and musty, it's beautiful and comfortable. Our room was very clean and had an updated bathroom. We would certainly stay there again.

    We were traveling cross-country to relocate and needed a stop in Wawa along our route. Becuase we were traveling with pets, our choices were limited and some of the places -- even national chains -- were run down and it was evident that NOBODY who worked at them cared about their guests or their business. Our expectation were quite low when we arrived at the Outdoorsman Motel in Wawa, but were surprised and delighted. It is charming and the owners have clearly gone out of their way to create a clean, inviting experience for their guests. Lots of little touches that show they care deeply about the role a good motel plays for a weary traveller. We loved that they had all of the take-out menus from local restaurants in the room and offered us some extra towels and cloths becuase they knew we were traveling with pets. Highly recommended.

    y The room was clean and comfortable. Nicely decorated. The bathroom had apparently been recently re-done, as it was very clean and BRIGHT. I went to the office to get ice. Ray, the owner, asked if I was making a cocktail to un-wind, which I was. Ray handed me two glass, cocktail glasses, as he did not want us drinking out of plastic glasses. A touch of class, on Rays part. The owners were absolutely great in making sure their guests were comfortable. We would definitely stay here again..... Go Packers.......

    FABULOUS! A hidden gem. We had to stay in Wawa unexpectedly due to road closures and were so pleasantly surprised with this place. Our room was clean, quiet, and cozy with an adorable cabin feel. Nice big fridge, new bathroom fixtures and everything worked great. The staff were kind and helpful. Bonus points for the warm cookies in the morning!

    Ray greated us and was very friendly. Our room was fresh smelling, very clean and had everything we needed. Cute decor. We are doing the Lake Superior Circle tour on our motorcycle and have stayed in various places along the way. We would definitely recommend The Outdoorsman. Also close enough to places to walk to eat if you don't want to ride your bike to dine.

    The best hotel experience I've had. The rooms were tidy and well kept. The full size fridge and freezer as well as the barbecues were a great feature for someone like myself who was staying for an extended period of time. The coffee and cookies available early in the morning made for a great start to my work days and the owners were incredibly friendly and personable.

    My husband and I stayed here twice, on our honeymoon road trip. On the way up, we decided to book here and we loved it! We loved the cabin vibe of our room. It was very clean and comfortable. The gentleman checking us in was very nice. They even offer some baked goods and coffee in the morning. We loved it so much, we decided to stay there again on the way back. It is a very small town so there's limited things to do but Lake Wawa is beautiful! Highly recommended!
