History

In 1945, a young Canadian couple from Kapuskasing Ontario purchased this beautiful waterfront property with the intention of offering an unsurpassed wilderness experience. Melba & Weldon Moore combined their names to create Melwel, and imbued it with their vision, personal warmth and uncompromising sense of hospitality. These pioneer hosts created a unique vacation destination to generations of families from across Canada and the United States.

In the ensuing 60 years, people have traveled to Melwel to experience a place where time has stood still. These guests have recognized that, while technology and the demands of modern society march relentlessly onward, sometimes the greatest enjoyment comes from the simplest pleasures in life: great food, good company, beautiful surroundings, and no sense of urgency.
