Introducing our new look.

Inspired by lakeside living, our lake view rooms have been completely reimagined. Cozy cabin vibes fuse with modern convenience and approachable luxury. All of our lake view rooms feature new 4-star quality bed linens, plush 100% cotton towels, all new furnishings, appliances and drapery.

The Bayview Motel is a simple motel with straightforward amenities and clean, comfortable rooms. Our property was built in the 1960s and maintains its classic character. We are situated on Colonization Road East in Fort Frances, overlooking beautiful Rainy Lake, next to the LaVerendrye Parkway river walk and just down the street from the Sorting Gap Marina and Pither’s Point Park. The Bayview Motel is the ideal outpost for a fishing weekend or a family vacation to discover Fort Frances and its surrounding natural wonders. 

We offer modern conveniences in each room including complimentary Gigabit Fibre Optic WiFi, a Keurig machine with Tim Hortons Coffee, refrigerator, microwave, flat screen television, and digital cable with a premium channel package. Some of our rooms have a kitchenette with apartment-size appliances, perfect for an extended stay.

Upon an ownership change in late 2018, we began what will be an extensive series of improvements to The Bayview Motel. As of today our lake view rooms have been completely refreshed with new furniture, 4-star quality linens, fixtures and appliances. Our classic double and single rooms have been updated with the same speedy WiFi connection, Keurig and premium amenities program as our lake view rooms. These classic rooms maintain their original character, offering incredible value for the area.

The personality of our motel may be vintage but our attitude is fresh. We strive to ensure your stay with us is comfortable and pleasant as we continue to make improvements along the way.

We look forward to welcoming you.
