We really enjoyed our overnight stay at Inn Serendipity. The hosts were absolutely fantastic: personable, full of knowledge, warm, and friendly. We had an easygoing tour of their farm, good discussions, and were even invited to a local potluck supper- it was a lovely evening. The morning was quite relaxing, and complete with an amazing breakfast full of local fare.... More

We enjoyed two nights at Inn Serendipity. The breakfasts were delicious, and John and Lisa were very accommodating to my dairy-free diet. It was a pleasure to see their large kitchen garden, renovated straw-bale green house and even enjoy a few wood fired pizzas in the evening. I would recommend a visit, especially if you live in the city, this... More

Lisa, John and Liam were wonderful. I read their book ECOpreneuring: Putting Purpose and the Planet before Profits and have been wanting to make a few changes to my career. Not only did they share their own insights regarding their own journey, but gave me some names to network/contact to gain more insight for my specific career change. The food... More

This is a wonderful haven in the middle of Cheese Country. I had a fantastic time--my life was changed, I recharged, and I learned a ton. I will never look at the world the same way again. The enterprise that Lisa and John have created is phenomenal and full of heart. I needed a break from consumerism and to reconnect... More

I can’t imagine a better place for city folk to start learning about living off the land. Inn Serendipity is a five-acre B&B on a homestead that includes an organic garden and a straw bale greenhouse. The unique and most valuable part of the stay is hanging with proprietors John Ivanko and Lisa Kivirist, who happily share their insights on... More

Once again you took very good care of us and provided a comfortable night in the Music Room. It is so nice to stay in a place that is free of the chemicals of the mainstream world. We don't eat processed food, we pursue a sustainable life, and we truly appreciate what you have done at Inn Serendipity. There was... More

Quiet, relaxing and peaceful place to stay with sustainable living inspiration all around you. Our evening snack (teas and carmel fondu with apples from the trees on the property) and conversation around the table with John, Lisa, Liam and another guest ranged many topics and felt like we were visiting good friends. They helped make our wedding anniversary special with... More

Enjoy the warm hospitality and delicious fresh food at Inn Serendipity. We had a wonderful time getting to know John and Lisa and were very grateful for their attention to detail. Our room was cozy and quiet, just perfect. We were inspired by their abundant garden and enthusiasm for lowering their carbon footprint. Along with being great chefs and gracious... More

Thank you - thank you! We had a very nice stay at your place! The natural vegetable and flower gardens without chemicals were very refreshing, the sustainable energy production was very educational for us, and the fact that we didn't have to feel air conditioning nor listen to television was wonderful. We had the best rest that we've had in... More

This was our second trip to Inn Serendipity, and we're already talking about trying to find the time to go back. As the other reviews indicate, this place is equal parts bed & breakfast, family farm, and ecological project. Lisa Kivirist & John Ivanko successfully completed the process of making their home energetically self-sufficient a few years ago, but they've... More
