Heading up north to close our trailer, there was no availability in North Bay for the weekend due to Hockey and Ringette tournaments. Our local Cottage Rentals had both gone south for a few weeks and we were literally homeless for the night! It had been suggested that we try the "Dinner Bell!"
What a pleasant surprise. As someone else had said, the rooms are dated but we found them utterly charming, with an antique chair and ottoman and the two beds were separated into their own little rooms. We watched tv (the old fatboy kind!) on one and slept in the other. The bed was one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on. There was even an electric fireplace for ambiance and warmth.
The bathroom was updated, water pressure and temperature awesome and the soaps and shampoo were spa like. (Another surprise!)
The room was spotlessly clean. There was even a fold away bed in the closet for larger families.
Would have loved a coffee maker in the room. (I may just bring my own next time)
Dinner was homemade delicious and the bread pudding was one of the best I have ever eaten.
The restaurant didn't open until 8am for breakfast but I did get the sense from the server at dinnertime they would have opened earlier, if we needed. Breakfast was yummy; eggs, sausage and homefries. (Included with jam, peanutbutter and caramel spread??? unique and tasty, for your toast)
We can't wait to go back in the winter for snowmobiling.

good food, fair prices. Stop by here on your way to King of the North Dragway and make sure you tell them you are going to the races. It is great to support local businesses and this is a great place to eat before or after the races. They also have a nice clean motel attached to the restaurant.
