Gerry and Nanette were absolutely amazing hosts- warm, sweet, knowledgable! They made an outstanding breakfast and made us feel so welcome! Their stories and knowledge of the area made for a perfect stay!

We feel very fortunate to have found this B&B. Our time was very enjoyable. Gerry an Nanette are great cooks and hosts. They also are very knowledgeable about the area. We appreciated all their guidance and suggestions about activities, restaurants and more. My wife and I would definitely stay here again. Thanks for making our vacation so special.

We enjoyed our 2 night stay at this modern B&B in Rossport. We stayed in the lovely Voyageur Room on the main floor. The ensuite was exceptional. Nannette and Gerry Price have taken great pride in development of their B&B. Gerry’s breakfast creations were quite delicious, memorable and substantial!

We were travelling around the north shore of Lake Superior enjoying day hiking . The Casques Isles Hiking trail has 5 sections between Rossport & Terrace Bay. We enjoyed the section from Aguasabon Falls Gorge to Lyda Bay the most. The Nipigon Recreational Trail between Nipigon and Red Rock is well worth hiking . The Rainbow Falls trail leads to a great view of Lake Superior in Rainbow Falls Provincial Park...though we had to park outside the gate in September since it was closed after 3pm. Nannette & Gerry offered to drive us to a trail head so that we could leave our car at the other end and not have to walk back.

Having just retired and marking our 40th wedding anniversary, my wife and I tried our first B&B. We so greatly appreciated the special attention and the accommodations. In particular special effort was made to address my wife's dietary needs. This review is long over due. Thanks you Nanette and Jerry.

We stayed here on our honeymoon trip around the lake. Nanette and Jerry were very welcoming and caring. Nanette even called when it was getting dark and we hadn't checked in yet to make sure that we were okay. We stayed in the Voyager room which was just inside the front door making carrying in our luggage very carefree and easy. The bathroom floor was heated which was very nice since it was cold and rainy when we arrived. The bathroom has a single jacuzzi tub that was very relaxing. The common area upstairs was incredible. We were the only couple there the night we stayed so it was a pleasant surprise to be able to relax and watch the football game. The home is very modern with personal touches that are incredible with many books to choose from, coffee and tea available at all times, and DVD's to check out and watch in your room. Breakfast was delicious and the conversation was great as Nanette and Jerry had great suggestions for our day trip. They suggested the Nature Trail hike at the end of the Rainbow Falls hike and it was incredible!!! We will definitely be back. Thank you for everything!!!

My husband and I came upon this B&B almost by accident and we are so thankful that we did! The hosts, Nannette and Jerry are friendly and welcoming and have created a perfect ambiance for relaxation and quite enjoyment. And let's not forget to mention the breakfast - it was SO good. We stayed in the Voyageur room, a room decorated in the theme that depicts the fur trade era of yesteryear and the voyageurs, men that transported furs by canoe during the fur trade era. The room's theme was further enhanced with authentic Hudson Bay blankets, and fascinating books to read about the fur trade era including the historic Hudson Bay Company. The large room and gorgeous bathroom was a wonderful home away from home - maybe better!

Room Tip: Voyageur Room is large with a sofa bed, chairs, and a desk - more like a suite than a room.
