JEH MacDonald painted “Algoma Waterfall”, believed to be Bridal Veil Falls on the Agawa River, as shown in the site and postcard of the painting.
In the summer of 1918, artist Lawren Harris left Toronto to explore the Algoma area by train, and his soul succumbed to Algoma’s spectacular beauty. Harris rented a boxcar, had it railed to a siding in the Agawa Canyon, and spent the summer hiking and sketching. Over the next four summers, the other landscape artists who made up the original Group of Seven or were associated with them, painted alongside Harris. If you are familiar with the group’s Northern Ontario paintings, you will recognize at every bend in a trail, a river, a roadway or a train track…a Group-of-Seven-worthy scene. A current project is underway to identify, catalog, and interpret Group of Seven painting sites in Algoma, and a guidebook is to be published.

We stayed here with our daughter's hockey team and we had a great experience. The rate for the rooms was quite reasonable and the hotel had a lot to offer. The kids enjoyed themselves in the pool and hot tub area. Having a Casey's and starbucks coffee on site was wonderful for the families with us. The hotel is also in a great location, with lots of the necessities surrounding it. I would most definitely book a stay here again!- Tripadvisor Review March 2012
