Welcome to Rainy River


"Two Roads diverged in a wood, and I - I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference."

- Robert Frost


From its idyllic setting on the banks of its namesake waterway, the Town of Rainy River is the Gateway to Northwestern Ontario and southward, to neighbouring Baudette, Minnesota.  A centre for bustling trade, comfortable amenities and relaxing  past times, Rainy River is within easy access of the United States across a toll-free international bridge; 22 km (14 miles) from the magnificent Lake of the Woods and a direct drive from Winnipeg, Manitoba.  Rainy River is the ideal choice for family living and retirement and unparalleled opportunities as a vacation destination.
