We've been here for ATV trips several times. This year (2011) was exceptional. Return late, after the restaurant was closed, we were thrilled to find dinner for 4 hungry guys in our room. Owners Frank and Gail and their staff obviously went one step farther than most innkeepers. Many thanks guys. If you are looking for an amazing stay and particularly if you love ATVing check them out. You will be thrilled.

We had stayed here many years ago and thought it would be fun to stay here again for old time sake. We were on our way to Northern Ontario to hunt bear and had such a good time I wished we could stay longer. We made sure to stop in again on our way home. It is right on Lake Superior and the beach and views are FABULOUS. This place has such charm and reminded me so much of great trips from my childhood and my childrens childhoods. Yet it had all the modern conveniences that I've come to love. I LOVE this place.

Room Tip: If you need absolute dark to sleep ask for a room on the South end (to the right of the General Store).

If you don't want a generic Sault hotel - the Voyageur is a basic but clean and friendly but offers it all. Well situated if you are looking for a stop between Toronto and Thunder Bay and want a bit of a retro motel/cabin experience. The beach is amazing on a warm summer day - a hop across the highway and you are on a sandy beach with warm water - you could be in the Caribean but you are on Lake Superior. We stayed one night in the smallest room with our dog - less than $100 bucks. The room was -basic -nice and clean and offered all the essentials - coffee maker, microwave, cable, wifi. Didn't have a/c which was a bit of an issue as the cabin faced East and didn't get much wind. Left the radio on classical to tone down the sound of the highway.

Because the weather was nice and Batchawana is well situated for day trips to provincial parks and wawa/high falls we stayed a second night but moved into a larger room. Twenty bucks more but worth it. No a/c still but faced Lake Superior and had more of a breeze. Very happy with the place.

The restaurant is great and always seemed full -- they have done a great job with the Voyageur theme. The service was really friendly.

Will definitely stop there again if in the area.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a/c or a fan. Good to muffle the sounds of the highway.

There's a sandy beach right across the highway from the motel (and the highway's not that busy); it's a great beach for young children, with the water increasing in depth only gradually and, on the day we were there, not a trace of the waves you expect to find on less sheltered parts of Superior. The rooms at the Voyageur have all been renovated, but there's no air-conditioning, at least not in ours (though there was cross-ventilation and they lent us a fan); our room was a good size. The mattresses were a little old and soft for my taste. There was a refrigerator and microwave in the room, but the wireless internet didn't work when we were there. The restaurant attached to the motel is well worth checking out (and, in any case, there may not be many other options; this seems to be a tiny community). Breakfast was not included in the room rate. The owners seem to sponsor various events during the season; when we were there, there was quite a good art show on the grounds. The week before there had been a concert at the little bandshell next door. These events might, I suppose, add to your experience (as the art show did to ours) or detract from it (if you don't like to have others around) - you should probably check when booking. As for value, we paid almost $120 for a family of four, which is more than we hoped, but overall this was a good stop for us on our way east through Ontario.

As a child, my family would stay at a non-descript motel on Hwy 17 at Batchawana Bay on our travels to Winnipeg, and as an adult, my husband and I decided to recreate the same trip. But no matter how I tried, I couldn't find that same motel across from Batchawana Bay so called Sault Ste Marie's tourism office in the hope they could assist. She didn't know the motel I spoke of, but she highly recommended that we try the Voyageurs' Lodge and Cookhouse instead.

Well wasn't I pleasantly surprised to discover that owners Frank & Gail had indeed bought that very same non-descript motel about 8 years ago and renovated it into the Voyageurs' Lodge! The room we had was beautiful and very large, with a separate full kitchen and tv area. Our dinner and breakfast at the Cookhouse was wonderful, and the staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful.

We enjoyed a beautiful sunset walk and swim along the bay, and hope to do it again soon. My only disappointment was that we weren't able to go for a canoe trip as there weren't enough guests signed up to carry the enormous canoe across the road!
