We are committed to the health and safety of our guests. We are following government regulations at this time.

There is no denying that we are experiencing crazy times all around the world right now with the COVID-19 global pandemic. 

Like other non-essential businesses across Ontario, we are closely watching the latest news updates from the Prime Minister and Premier to determine our course of action when it comes to accepting guests to Great Spirit Lodge.

As of May 6, 2020, we are refunding guest deposits who are prevented, by law, from coming to Great Spirit Lodge. We are offering to hold your deposit and apply it to your next booking, whenever that may be possible. We are encouraging this option, of course, because we would love for you to come experience our piece of paradise here on Lake Temagami. If you have already paid your deposit and would like to discuss your booking, please email or call us at (705) 237-8974.

When we are able to start accepting guests again, your stay will look slightly different, at least for a little while. While our cleaning and sanitization routine for the cottages is normally very extensive, we are adding extra measures to protect our guests.

Here are just some of the recommended Workplace Safety & Prevention Services guidelines we will be adhering to upon eventual reopening:

  • Pre-screening guests – any who are experiencing any symptoms or have a fever will not be able to come
  • Deep cleaning of cottages between rentals using one of the approved cleaning agents recommended by Health Canada
  • All bedding and towels will be laundered between rentals using hot water and laundry detergent then dried immediately in high heat as recommended by Health Canada
  • Anti Bacterial hand soap is now in each bathroom
  • Deep cleaning of boats between rentals and between ferrying of guests to and from the landing using one of the approved cleaning agents recommended by Health Canada
  • Thorough cleaning of the sauna will occur between uses following the guidelines provided by Health Canada
  • We will be using gloves and masks when we load and unload gear for guests
  • Adhering to physical distancing guidelines during your stay
  • We will be encouraging payment by e-transfer
