The Fabulous Franklin Hotel in Strawberry Point

On a street corner in downtown Strawberry Point, sits a respite for travelers past and present. 

Since 1902, people have been coming to The Franklin Hotel to put their feet up and enjoy the vintage, early 1900’s atmosphere and hear stories of incidents that occurred within these historic walls. The check-in counter is the very same place that guests would visited upon their arrivals over 100 years ago.

Get a good night of sleep when you are transported from the modern hustle and bustle to your quaint, serene room, featuring the simpler, easier atmosphere of yesteryear. Listen to the chatter emanating from the adjoining pub and restaurant, and maybe even swap stories with other customers as you dine on the delicious fare. Or, if you're in the mood, stop down for a nightcap yourself.

In the morning, head on over to the hotel restaurant and order a plate of the fluffy and delectable pancakes to start your day. Wander the streets of Strawberry Point and mosey through the shops, restaurants, and museum that lie just outside the hotel door. Anything you could want or need is conveniently within walking distance of this small town gem.  And don't forget to see the largest strawberry in the world, less than a block away!  

Looking to entertain somewhere unique and charming? Hold an event in the hotel's banquet room and have the restaurant cater it, to make your occasion as effortless and satisfying as possible. The friendly staff will help  you get settled and enjoy your experience to the fullest! Enjoy your one of a kind visit the historic Franklin Hotel in downtown Strawberry Point.
