Our grandfather, Hollis LaTourelle
The LaTourell family's knowledge of the canoe country began over 65 years ago when Hollis LaTourell began this tradition of catering to canoeists. He along with his son Bob Sr. (Jeep), spent countless days guiding on the canoe trails as well as trapping, hunting, fishing, and living in this great wilderness area. The third generation of our family, Bob Jr., Mindy, and Missy, followed their lead and their love of what this wilderness area has to offer. They not only grew up experiencing this areas natural beauty and resources, but also the people who came here to visit it. They, along with their own families, now continue to serve visitors here at LaTourell's. We feel our family's knowledge is an invaluable resource for your trip preparation and enjoyment. It is our privilege to share it with you, our guests.
Continuing to provide the level of service and dependability our guests have come to trust is a commitment to us. Being a family operated business, it's very important to us to go that extra mile to provide excellent service to our customers. We realize that life is short, along with your vacation time, so it is very important to provide the service you expect. It's our pledge.
