The Old Skylight Motel Near Britt Burns

On October 13th, 2019 when my brother was heading home to Toronto after our Thanksgiving in Britt he could see the smoke. Dad and I headed out to investigate.

Just north of the Britt turn-off (between Parry Sound and Sudbury on Hwy 69/400) the old Skylight Motel burned down. We don’t know the cause of the fire at this time.

Mom remembers going there when she was a teenager. It was a hangout spot with burgers and root beer floats in the 1960s and 1970s. It hasn’t been used as a motel in 20 years.

We are so thankful to have such swift, skilled local volunteer fire fighters in the area!
