The Melwel Experience

Simple, Clean & Pure

Melwel Lodge is located in Northern Ontario, 1 hour east of Sault St. Marie on a pure, clean natural lake. Big Basswood Lake was rated #1 in Ontario for water clarity - you can drink the water directly from the lake. It is spring fed, crystal clear, approximately ten miles long, up to three miles wide and ranges 300 feet deep. Fishermen fish for lake trout, whitefish, bass and perch. Much of the shoreline is in its natural uninhabited state including majestic granite bluffs, as well as secluded sandy beach coves.

The Melwel resort property has over 3000' of waterfront on 30 acres of forest land. It is simple, clean and pure.

Included in your stay are the use of our paddleboats, canoe and kayaks. Guided fishing tours can be arranged - please inquire when booking.
