    This is a great place to stay. The owners are friendly and totally on the ball. We had asked for extra bedding when we had called to book ahead and... boom... there it was in the room. They have coffee and cookies in the morning. We didn't really feel comfortable backing our trailer between some truck and the owner jumped right in and backed it up for us. Will stay again!

    Love this place ❤️. Its warm and cozy. The new owners welcome you like family. The outdoorsy and country theme is inviting. Brand new everything from the rugs to the unique lamps. Took a day long motorbike ride with friends and and were happy to rest at this little gem. They even provided free shammys to wipe our bikes down. The new owners are delightful and helpful if you need anything. The rooms have a full size fridge and freezer to store anything you may pick up across the street at the local grocery store. There is also a beer store and restaurants less than a block away. Outside there are new barbecues and also lawn chairs for you to enjoy the fresh air. Last but not least , fresh delicious coffee and just baked cookies offered in the morning. We will most definitely be staying again.

Rooms have been renovated. The friendliest owners. Nice conversation, great coffee and freshly made cookies in the morning. Was great for my family of 4 and my pets.

    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!

    This is a little gem in Wawa. The beds are super comfortable, you can tell the bathroom was redone recently and it looks great. The rooms are adorable. One suggestion I would make is to put a chain on the door to the rooms for little escape artists like my son (4yrs) , he was able to open the door freely so for the nighttime we put the table infront of the door to avoid him getting out. The room was impeccably clean, I swear not a spec of dust anywhere. Will definitely stay here again if we need to stay the night in Wawa. The cookies and coffee in the lobby are a cute touch for the morning. I'd also like to add that the staff are very friendly!

  • 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.

    We are driving from Ottawa to Vancouver with lots of overnight stays in chain hotels. This stay was by far the best. Clean, comfortable and friendly. Highly recommend. Only minor criticism was that as we had to leave very early, coffee was not available. Pot in the room would have been icing on the cake.

  • Extremely friendly staff! Lovely spot to stay. We stopped here for one night on our way through the town and decided to stay here over the other spots in town and we are SO happy we did! The rooms were spotless and clean. You could smell the cleanness of the room. The bathroom looked brand-new and just renovated. There was wifi, tv, fridge, microwave, table and a queen bed in the room. Very comfortable room and gave a lovely "home" feeling. We received free coffee in the morning and fresh baked cookies! The staff were very genuine, kind and friendly. Definitely will stay here again if we pass by again! Definitely recommend!

    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.

    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!

    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.
