Sleeping Around in Manitoba
From sleeping on the tundra with polar bears to practising your French in an urban B&B, taking the road less traveled is easy in Manitoba. In a perfect mix of adventure and rejuvenation, our unique hospitality options charm and delight travelers.
Tundra Buggy Lodge. Obscure. Adventurous. Situated on the tundra along the Hudson Bay. Have a view from your "bed" at a "lodge," a train-like dwelling on giant wheels, in the middle of a polar bear highway. Dining car, social car, and sleeping cars with upper and lower berths. What you might see out your porthole window? Bears fighting, northern lights dancing, crazy, winds blowing - all awesome.
Gîte de la Cathédrale. Get your French fix in one of Winnipeg's oldest neighbourhoods, Old Saint-Boniface/Winnipeg's French Quarter, at Gîte de la Cathédrale a quaint French bed-and-breakfast in the heart of the district. Winnipeg has one of the largest French communities west of the Great Lakes. At the Gîte, practice your French. Get the inside scoop on where to go in the Quarter. Homemade cooking. This B&B is not full of frills, but it is warm and welcoming and you get to hang with the locals.
9 Finger Ranch. Saddle up and take a ride off the beaten path on horseback at this working cattle ranch located in Rossburn on the south end of Riding Mountain National Park. With a unique cowboy way of doing things, the Ranch offers an authentic and natural experience that will take you into the heart of Manitoba's Parklands.
Bakers Narrows Yurts. There are endless sources of fun at Bakers Narrows Provincial Park. Located south of Flin Flon, the park is a rich boreal forest, an anglers retreat and a treat for the eyes. Spend your day swimming, hiking, exploring and gazing at spectacular views from the scenic tower. A yurt is the perfect option for optimal rest and relaxation at the end of a busy day.

The Fairmont Winnipeg. Sleep with the beautiful people, so to speak. If you're famous, "hot" and talented, this is your berth of choice. Brad Pitt. Renée Zellweger. Harry Connick Jr. Susan Sarandon. Kanye West. Celine Dion. Green Day. Keith Urban. AC/DC. Even Tony Bennett. And now, you.
