OK, you're somewhere else,
and wish you were here. Good idea, let us help you.
First, you need to fly
or drive to Sault Ste Marie in Northern Ontario Canada. Sault
Ste Marie Canada is drive accessible from the United States via
Interstate I75 across the international bridge, and from Southern
Ontario and the rest of Canada via the Trans Canada Highway 17.
See the map below to get a better idea of how to drive here from
where you are. Sault Ste Marie's Airport (YAM) is also accessible
by commercial airline fights from anywhere in the world via connecting
flights with Air Canada
through the Toronto International Airport (YYZ). Chippewa Country
Airport (CIU), south of Sault Ste Marie Michigan is also an option
for people flying from the United States to Canada.
Most of our guests prefer
to take the train or float plane to our secluded wilderness resort
from Hawk Junction in order to enjoy the spectacular scenery
along Lake Superior's coastal drive North from Sault Ste Marie.
This beautiful drive along Lake Superior's coast is an easy 2-1/2
to 3 hours all on paved highways. We recommend allotting at least
5 hours for this drive however, because of the numerous stops
you will want to make to enjoy the spectacular scenery, beautiful
beaches and perhaps some of the many hiking opportunities. The
train does not leave Hawk Junction until 3:00 pm in the afternoon
so you have lots of time to enjoy yourselves if you leave Sault
Ste Marie early to mid morning, or we can charter a float plane
flight from Hawk Junction to our resort at a time convenient
for you. Taking a train one way and float plane the other is
also easily arranged. For people who fly into Sault Ste Marie
there are 2 car rental agencies at the airport, National
Car Rental and Budget Rent-A-Car,
and Limousine service is also available.
If you would like to take
another day or two to enjoy the Lake Superior coastal region,
we recommend staying at Lake
Shore/Salzburgerhof Resort in Batchawana Bay. It is owned
by Doris's family and they provide very comfortable accommodations
and really great meals at their resort on the shore of Lake Superior.
You can also take the
train all the way to our resort from Sault Ste Marie. This would
allow you to go through Agawa Canyon, well-known for it's rugged
beauty. The train trip takes 7 hours and leaves Sault Ste Marie
at 9:20 am. From Mid June through to the end of September you
may also have the option of a 2 hour stop at Agawa Canyon by
purchasing Agawa Canyon Combo Tickets and departing at 8:00 am.
We can also arrange float
plane charters from downtown Sault Ste Marie to our resort.
