What a treasure! You are guaranteed the most special, relaxed evening imaginable! Food is outstanding and Marcus and Deborah are the most gracious hosts you could ever hope for. Take the time to visit-you'll be certain to return. I cannot say enough good things about our experience.

I wish I didn't have such a bad memory when it came to names because I just can't say enough good things about Markus and I believe his wife. When we pulled up she met us at our car and chatted with us in general just made us feel very welcome. I have really bad social anxiety so to make... More

As repeat visitors to Rose Valley we were again treated to an outstanding gastronomic feast on Friday night for our anniversary. Markus is easily the most talented chef in the region and his creations always delight us. On this evening our five course meal centred around a beef tenderloin entree but truth be told, I could make a meal out... More

I cannot say enough good things about this place. I brought 3 of my girlfriends who have never been and all 3 agreed they have never eaten anywhere so good. Our 5 courses included Stinging nettle soup, bean salad, kale ravioli, stuffed chicken with roasted carrots and cucumbers and raspbery merengue. Great atmosphere, we went and visited the horses between... More

My husband and I were looking for a couples get away to relax. Rose Valley was the perfect choice. Despite arriving on a rainy spring afternoon, we enjoyed meeting our gracious hosts Deborah and Marcus, getting familiar with the beauty of the property and taking advantage of the sauna. Our cabin warmed by the wood stove, the sound of the... More

I took my wife to Rose Valley to celebrate Mother's Day. Marcus and staff did not disappoint. The meal and scenery were fantastic as always. Where Rose Valley stands out from the rest is the menu selection and preparation of the meals. Where else in Thunder Bay can you find Spätzle, asperagus salad, homemade Kale ravioli (locally grown Kale) with... More

We are by reservation only with one dinner sitting at 7:00 pm Thursday to Sunday. First reservation chooses the main entree for that evening. Experience a delectable 5-course meal in a quiet, intimate setting on secluded 440 acres of meadows, forest and ancient mountains. Make it a full getaway with an overnight stay in one of two log cabins available for rent.
