Robert Milling & Lynn Berthiaume


Bob and Lynn are long time residents of the area and the proud parents of Gabriel and Luc, both in their early teens. Lynn, originally from Ottawa, and Bob, an import from the remote northwestern Ontario town of Sioux Lookout, began the rebirth of the Wakefield Mill from an abandoned, vacant site in 1997. Four years, and a lifetime of learning later, Bob and Lynn opened the Mill and as newly-minted “innkeepers”, greeted their first guests on May 4, 2001.
