Our ski team and coaches of 11 total had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful home during a week in March while we attended the XC Ski Nationals at Lappe Nordic. Laura and Ed graciously provided the entire house for us to use, so there was plenty of room, beds and space for all. The pool table in the... More

We were in Thunder Bay to visit family and decided, rather than put anyone out this time, we would book this lovely accommodation found by our daughter. Our only other experience at a B & B was not a great one so we were a bit hesitant. I have to say, our experience staying with Laura and Ed has sure... More

We tried to rent the house for a family wedding on the August long weekend only to find that it was already rented. Laura suggested we use the 40' park model trailer and it turned out to be a remarkable suggestion. There was plenty of room for all 5 of us (2 adults and 3 teenagers) and the trailer was... More

This is the second time we've stayed with Laura and Ed, and both times have been absolutely wonderful. Both times we had the whole downstairs (family of 6)We felt like we were going to visit our favorite relatives. Fresh biscuits as a welcome were great! The kids loved staying and playing in the pool, and we relaxed and talked and... More

I was in town with my other half for a few nights to attend an important interview at lake head U, I was very unsure about the hotel situation in Thunder Bay so I decided to go with absolute serenity based on the reviews! It's so cozy and homey! Even when it's snowy and cold outside, this is like a... More

We're so glad we discovered Absolute Serenity! It was the most relaxing and restful night we'd had on our long journey driving from BC to Toronto. We enjoyed having our own kitchenette and spacious living quarters for the night. Laura and Ed gave just the right amount of "attentiveness" while also giving us our privacy. A very quiet location...just what... More

We recently stayed here with our three children (11, 9, and 7) and had a great time. This location is conveniently located near area attractions and the hospitality was appreciated. Ed and Laura had the wood burning stove going and fresh biscuits on the table as we arrived. It was a little difficult to find (no signage), but once we... More

We spent two nights at Laura and Ed's place, Absolute Serenity. We booked the downstairs space, which did not feel like a basement at all, as it had a walkout to the deck. It fit us easily, with room to spare. There was a kitchenette for us to use, 1 and a half baths, pool table, TV with a large... More

Our family of two adults and four children (ages 5-11) stayed three nights in July and had a great time. I cannot say enough about the owners. So friendly, accommodating, hospitable, helpful. We rented the lower level of the home with two bedrooms and 1.75 baths. Plenty of room for six with a large living area and handy kitchenette. Lots... More
