October 25, 2012 Wawa Disaster
Life is a Shipwreck, but we must not forget to sing in the lifeboats - Voltaire
Check out the Wild Videos! Yes, that is our place, destroyed! Yikes! The Trans Canada Highway was destroyed too, closed for ONE WEEK.
Thank Goodness we were Closed for the Season. It could have been so much worse. (Always look at the Positive!) The water was 1/2 way up the windows on our new 10-Room building (This building has been demolished)

But... we are surrounded by boarded up Motels & Businesses. Let's face it, Northern Ontario IS a Disaster. This was just another day! lol!
At the time, no one, including us, thought our business would ever reopen. But we aren't Quitters. We have spent the past 18 months rebuilding what we have left.
The property damage is wild though.... blah... Hard to fix that!
We did build a road through the canyon to demolish the 10 room building, but.... It's still a disaster zone. :-(
So yes, the place is TRASHED on the outside, but it's the inside that counts... Right?
Millette's General Contracting rebuilt the decks and main floors of the Chalets.
They renovated our Rooms that are on high ground. Look at the beautiful new carpet and tiles ~
New Tub Surrounds & fixtures...
I always post new pics and info on Facebook. Facebook likers get to request Free Upgrades when booking a room online!
