Mystery Lake Motor Hotel is a primary example of NCN’s commitment to investment in businesses that generate jobs and revenue for the First Nation. It also demonstrates our commitment to the tourism industry and the City of Thompson, which is within NCN’s traditional territory.

NCN acquired the Mystery Lake Motor Hotel more than a decade ago with funds obtained through the Northern Flood Implementation Agreement. NCN is dedicated to maintaining a competitive, first-class facility in Thompson, and in fall 2007 completed a five-month expansion adding 18 two-room suites and 11 standard rooms to the 70 existing units. The new facilities all include king-size beds. In addition, the hotel has installed a new telephone system, new security features including surveillance cameras and parking lot lighting and is working to install an in-house, pay-per-view movie service to replace DVD/VCRs.
