What a Gem of place. We had seen the reviews on Trip Advisor and stopped early in the morning on our way to Pearl, to see some friends and go to an Amethyst mine. The owner was there cleaning and we were able to get a room for that night. The rate was more than fair, the accomodations, which consist of a small apartment were immaculate, and the owner was very helpful and informative about places to eat and things to do in Thunder Bay area. He was there the next morning also cleaning and we enjoyed visiting with him again. The only drawback to this place is it is small enough I'm afraid we won't be able to get a room next time!!!!

Steps (or cycle) to gorgeous parks located in the Current River Greenway, an 18 hole municipal golf course and other attractions, you won't regret spending the night in this residential setting. We believe that a comment left by one of our guests recently says it all: "Your place here... it's really a hidden gem."
