Modern Fort Frances hotel located in downtown, with everything you need close by.

We're your nest when you stay in the Northwest.


A little bit of "hoo" we are

What's better than a comfy nest at the end of a travel day? 

The Sleepy Owl is a humble sized hotel with 24 rooms. Each room, or nest, is stocked with the simple pleasures that make staying away from home worthwhile. From personal selections of coffee to wake you up in the morning (or keep you working on that big project late at night) to a variety of pillows so you get that perfect amount of plushness to the natural bath products to soothe your skin, we want you to feel taken care of. Our place is small enough that no one gets lost in the shuffle, but professionally staffed so that we're able to cater to your needs around the clock. 

Why Stay at Our Fort Frances Hotel?

We keep the decor neutral and warm, from dark wood finishes to cream coloured walls so that it's the perfect canvas to appreciate the real gem of the hotel, which is our caring and attentive staff. You'll be welcomed to our place with a smile, a cookie, and the assurance that your comfort is their number one priority. It's like staying with family, but without hearing your aunt Trudy snore from the bedroom next door. 

But while we like to keep things quiet and cozy on the inside, once you step out of our doors you're in the heart of the community! 

Craving a steak dinner? Shopping for handcrafted gifts? Ready for live music? Maybe just a morning espresso? You'll be there in five minutes or less! Care for a stroll around the river with your loved one? Just ask the front desk for directions, or head south at the east end of our block and you'll be by the water in no time. Regardless of the season, the riverfront walk offers a spectacular chance to interact with nature without needing to drive into the woods.
