My wife and I just got back from a great week long vacation. We started it the best way possible.. with a trip on the Agawa Canyon Tour Train followed by an overnight stay at Errington's. When we decided to do this, we weren't really sure what to expect. We read over the website's information and thought it sounded good,,, but after our short stay, we found we were wrong... IT WAS GREAT!
My wife gave Errington's a call to make the reservation. She spoke to Doris Errington and she was more than helpful. She suggested places to stay in The Soo the night before our trip and also suggested things to do. She was a big help and made sure everything was arranged and set up.
The train ride to Agawa Canyon was beautiful. We transferred to the passenger train and picked up others that were also on their way to Errington's. Everyone we spoke to on the train had been up to Errington's many times in the past and had nothing but great things to say about about the resort and especially about the Errington family.
As our short visit confirmed, the Wilderness Resort was outstanding.... the food was exceptional , the scenery calming and the nature/wildlife viewing was very nice.
The one thing that will stand out the most for us is the character of the Errington family. We were only on the island for less than a day, but in that short time we could see a deep love of nature and people from each one of them. oh... and the staff at Errington's was great as well.
