Wonderful b&b. Lots of room to stretch out in shared living area- no one else was staying when we were there, so we had it to ourselves. Pool was very refreshing. Food was excellent. Lots of thoughtful touches, from freshly made biscuits on arrival to fluffy robes. Only downside was that the bed was a bit small for my wide-shouldered husband.
Super-friendly hosts, peaceful beautiful setting. Definitely recommend!

My 2 sisters and I were very comfortable and well cared for at this B&B. Lovely, spacious rooms, fantastic breakfasts, quiet, serene country side, all within 15 min of the city. Great sunny deck too! Our hosts were gracious and our costs were less than taking conventional hotel rooms. We recommend this accommodation to everyone.

Visited Absolute Serenity for three nights in July while attending a wedding in Thunder Bay. We were two couples, and the accommodation was just what we wanted. It consisted of a self-contained, open-concept area in the downstairs of their house, with two bedrooms with ensuites opening onto a large living room, plus a kitchen and eating area. Because the Collins were visiting family in B.C. we didn't get to sample Laura's breakfasts, but we were more than happy to cook for ourselves in the unit's well-equipped kitchen. Laura's mom was minding the store and was on hand for anything we needed. On the first night we were treated to the sight of a deer bounding across the front lawn as we ate our dinner outside! It was really nice to spend time in such a green, quiet setting. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! -- S. Kulka, Ottawa

We are travelling across Canada on a roadtrip and found ourselves needing to find somewhere to stay on very short notice in Thunder Bay. One look at Tripadvisor had us setting our hopes for Absolute Serenity. Laura and Ed were kind enough to accommodate us on such short notice, and we are so glad that they did. West Coasters that we are, we were pretty daunted by the incredible thunder and lightning storm that we drudged through to get to Thunder Bay, and once we arrived, the hail had just let up, leaving hail stones the size of ice cubes! Laura and Ed were so incredibly warm and thoughtful and greeted us with smiles and a roaring fire. If it wasn't for their incredible hospitality and comfortable suite, we're not sure we could have pressed on with the rest of our trip. It is unlikely that we will get back to Thunder Bay any time soon, but I would recommend this B&B to anyone who finds themselves there.

PS: apparently this is only the 2nd hail storm like this one in 10 years -- so don't let that be a deterrent!!

Stayed here for three nights and absolutely LOVE this place!

We arrived late and it was cold and windy and just started to snow (snow at the end of April!). When we went in the wood burning on and it was so warm and inviting.

Laura showed us around and we were fortunate that we were the only one staying at that time so we had the whole B&B to ourselves! There's even a fireplace in the bedroom which was great because i'm always cold. The place was so warm and spotless. The breakfast table had fresh flowers and treats for us.

Breakfast was amazing, would go back just for the breakfast alone. We also met Ed and both of them are very hospitable and give your the best service. We had the pork tenderloin with salad and dessert and they're amazing.

They have great wifi and we even face-time with the kids and showed them the place. My little one was impressed on how big it was. We will for sure take them here this summer. They have video games and board games so they won't be bored. We didn't get a chance to check out the lake in the area because it was a little chilly but gonna check that out in the summer.

This place is in the forest but still in city limits but it's probably a 15 minute drive to downtown.

Definitely five star treatment on this place. This is only my second time staying on a B&B and it won't be my last but they sure set the bar high for the others.

If you have time definitely check out Bistro One. Great food and service as well. Their creme brûlée was soooo good! Also, had a workout at Mind and Body Centre.
