A little bit of our history…
The Forestview Apartments came into existence in 1984, when the Dickenson Mine wanted out of the housing business. The 104 unit complex consists of four buildings which were initially populated by single mine workers in their own one-bedroom, furnished suites. From the beginning, the apartments have provided the best accommodations in the area as well as a sense of community belonging.
The longest strike in Canadian history took place in Balmertown from 1996 to 2000. After this time, changes were made so that not only were our units rented on a yearly basis, but monthly and weekly as required. The one bedroom units of Building #4 were “spruced up” and rented on a nightly basis, hence the creation of The Nature’s Inn Red Lake.
