Here are some other things to know about Ojibway:
Breakfast is at 8:00, Lunch at 12:30, and Dinner at 6:00. Our meal bell rings a half hour before every meal and is followed by an “almost-ready” five-minute warning bell and a final “come and get it” bell.
Lake Temagami averages around 70 degrees Fahrenheit but can warm to the upper 70's.
Ojibway will happily cater to any dietary restrictions, but given the impressive distance to the nearest store, we’ll need to know about any requirements you have in advance of your stay.
At Ojibway, we love good food and can’t wait to eat! Our dining room is informal and casual with just one rule that calls for shoes and shirts at meals.
There is no cell phone service on Devil’s Island. Wireless internet access is available at the main lodge. We only ask that guests be discrete when using it so as not to disrupt the wilderness experience for other guests.
Worried about bugs? Don’t be! Blackflies are usually gone by mid to late June. Mosquitoes can hang around into July. All one- and two-bedroom cabins have screened porches.
Ojibway adds no service charges to your bill. Tips can be left at your discretion and are always much appreciated by our hard-working staff. Feel free to add 10-15% to your bill at checkout, and we’ll be happy to distribute it for you.
Smoking at Ojibway is only allowed on the docks. Keewaydin is completely smoke-free.
Regretfully, pets can’t be accommodated at Ojibway. (Our apologies to your four-legged family members.)
We’re not licensed to serve alcohol. But you’re always welcome to bring wine or beer to the dining room and our staff will uncork it for you. From time to time we will host a social hour in the lodge with wine, beer and cheese, or we would be happy to set you up with the fixings to have your small cocktail party at your cabin (but you have to provide the wine and beer for those).
We recommend all guests bring:
- A bathing suit
- Casual dress (shorts may be worn to meals)
- A warm outer layer like a windbreaker or fleece pullover
- Rain gear
- Sturdy shoes or sneakers
- Smooth sole tennis shoes, if you’ll be playing on our clay courts
- A flashlight or headlamp
- Beach towels
- Insect repellent (no aerosol cans please!)
- Biodegradable shampoo and soap for use in the bathrooms only. Natural Goddess soaps, shampoos and conditioners are available in the store should you need them. For environmental reasons, bathing in the lake is not permitted.
- Any equipment you want, like tennis racquets and balls, snorkeling gear, fishing poles (spinning or spin-cast, 8-12 lbs. line recommended, fly rods can be fun, too)
- That great book you can’t wait to read
