Welcome to Melwel Lodge
Melwel Lodge - Since 1945...
Since 1945, three generations of families have traveled from across the United States and Canada to enjoy the unmatched beauty and hospitality of Melwel Bay.
Melwel is located in the picturesque Algoma region of Ontario, an area steeped in history and stunning beauty. Melwel Bay offers a jewel-like setting for the lodge: magnificent rock formations reflect across crystal clear waters, surrounded by untouched forest.
Nestled along the treed shoreline of Melwel Bay are 11 gorgeously restored, immaculately maintained 1-4 bedroom cabins. Each cabin has it's own unique personality, offering guests wilderness luxury of comfortable beds and furniture, elite hotel linens, well appointed amenities, and the relaxing feeling of the history of the property.
Lakefront Cottage Rentals
Our 1, 2 & 3 bedroom cabins are located on the shores of semi-private Melwel Bay at the eastern end of Basswood Lake in Northern Ontario. Each cottage has been carefully updated, allowing them to retain the charm of yesteryear. Our comfortable setting allows families & friends to relax, and engage with nature while enjoying many activities on the lake.
