“Gorgeous, relaxing honeymoon.”
Across the bridge and overlooking a beautiful bay of the French River, Samuel de Champlain, sits on a stunning pink granite point. A large living room with French doors opens onto a cedar screened porch with 180 degree views of the water. Off the living room are three bedrooms with king beds. Choose twins if you prefer. There are three bathrooms, two ensuite. The large kitchen is a place you will want to sit, eat your hamper breakfast, delivered each morning to your door, and relish the views.

A brief history
Samuel de Champlain is a colossal name in Canadian history. “The Father of New France”, Champlain was a French navigator, cartographer, draftsman, soldier, explorer, geographer, ethnologist, diplomat, and chronicler. He travelled down the French River in July 1615 to produce the first map of the system. The names he applied to many places are still used today. Read ‘Champlain’s Dream,’ by David Hackett Fischer for a look at what would one day become Canada & the USA.
From time to time we will interest you with developments at the lodge - projects, competitions, the river & the environment.
