Woody hooks up with a long-time friend, Enn Poldmaa, and Teddy gets a chance to say hello to his dog chums at the lodge. Enn, and his wife Robin, operate the Bellevue Valley Lodge, 25 kilometres northeast of Sault Ste. Marie, Canada, just minutes from all the best activities this region of Lake Superior has to offer.
In winter, guests explore the extensive backcountry on skis or snowshoes, or enjoy groomed trails and downhill skiing at local resorts. Telemark skiing is their personal backyard passion, and Woody can relate.
In summer, country roads and local trails are suitable for road and mountain biking, and amazing viewscapes abound, especially from The Voyageur Hiking Trail. Photographers and artists will enjoy the natural beauties of the land; spring flowers, fall colours, birding, and wildlife. Canoeing, sailing and sea-kayaking are close by on Lake Superior and the adjacent Goulais River.
A separate guest chalet has two fully equipped apartments, separately cozy for couples, or when combined able to accommodate larger groups of 10 or more. Relax in the evening by the fireplaces and indulge in the traditional Finnish sauna.
They offer full-season accommodations, and eco-friendly activities for the outdoor enthusiast. Whatever the season, whatever your interest, Enn and Robin will make your stay an enjoyable one!
