The Trans Canada Highway was closed for a week as they rebuilt it.

With the destruction of both chalets and 12 rooms, no one thought our business would ever reopen. When the Ministry of Transportation rebuilt the highway, they did not put our 2nd entrance back.

Property destroyed too


But we rebuilt the houses and completely renovated our 4 Motel Rooms that escaped damage.

We were so happy to reopen the "Mini Motel" August 2013!

Downsized big time!


The Massive Land Loss was approved for Disaster Relief, but we have yet to receive help from our Government.

Approved for Wawa Disaster Relief


Promises promises


Why can't they just fix their property and bury the fibre optics line???

We have been trying to recover for over 2 years now. We sincerely Thank everyone for all the kind words, support and donations. The donations we received were given, in good faith, to Disaster Relief. We can only stay POSITVE, be happy, and keep waiting. :-)

Life is a Shipwreck.....
