We stayed here for our honeymoon in 2009. We loved the place and hope to return there in 2019 for our 10 year anniversary. The hosts were awesome and didn't rent any other rooms while we were there since it was our honeymoon. The breakfasts were amazing!!!!

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
