TravelPod Member ReviewsAurora Borealis Motor Inn Saint Ignace
An old motel that has been done up. No breakfast offered and restaurant next door not open for breakfast despite website for it giving breakfast menu. Drive to Java Joe's for a hot, well priced breakfast. Don't bother to pay extra for room with view - obstructed by buildings and trees.

Finding bread rolls has been a bit tricky. We have had wraps for the last 2 days as an alternative.
Visited the old lighthouse in St Ignace before going back to the motel. Off south tomorrow
... triple our summer of last and it was truly exhausting living and working in such close quarters for so long. We didn't care for the temperature and clouds most days and I never thought I'd say it, but I can't wait to get back to Florida. Unlike our summer in the Caribbean there was not a single day of swimming this year but we did manage to tour the Great Northeast hot tub style, hitting no less than 7 different tubs, some of them for several dips.
