  • Halfway between Parry Sound and Sudbury, this stop-over has an interesting concept - ``tell me when to stop`` says the counter service when you order an icecream. Sold by the gram, you can have as lit...  read more »

  • Well laid out store full of both native and other artifacts of good quality. Very pleasant staff, clean facility. Pleasant stop off en route from Sudbury to Parry Sound. 
  • My fiancé and I stopped at this place because we seen they had a sign for fudge. We went into the restaurant my fiancé purchased an ice cream when she went to pay for the ice cream they weighed it which we thought was strange and expensive. After that we headed to the gift shop so I could get fudge. We noticed they sold boat shaped shelves which we had been looking for one to purchase. As soon as we entered the store we were treated really poorly and like 5 year olds because my fiancé had an ice cream cone. If you are looking for customer service I would probably not recommend this place but if you do choose to stop at this place make sure you don't bring ice cream into there gift shop. We make the drive from Alberta to Nova Scotia twice a year. There are multiple other places in Ontario that are very good but we will not be returning to this one.
  • Very nice place to stop. Added memories to our trip unlike other stops. We only stopped for a washroom break, but ended spending alot of time there
  • Their Fudge is so great...I finished in one day! Their soy based, lavender candle, lasts forever and will smell your entire place like a spa! Love this place!!!
  • I love places like this. Sure thing may be a little over priced, but where else will you get merch like this?
  • I've stopped here a couple of times. The beautiful French River is close by, and there be bears here! (big plush ones) Good coffee and snacks, a nice place to stretch your legs.
