Thunder Bay house description

Treat yourself to Absolute Serenity…, A quiet private retreat that offers country charm in a spacious well appointed accommodation.

Let us pamper you with a pond and park like setting, Satellite TV, DVD player, pool table, and private entrance and deck. The property has WIFI so take it outdoors! Savour a dip in our pool, a tranquil walk through the 6-acre setting, or an invigorating hike at one of the many nearby hiking trails. We are equipped with snowshoes, cross-country skis, canoe, and mountain bikes for your use. After a day spent exploring our beautiful city, you can snuggle by the woodstove fire, or roast marshmallows over the fire pit on the property. No matter what the season, we have a variety of activities for everyone to enjoy. Fantastic location for families!

There are 2 bedrooms (Queen beds), both with full ensuites. There are 2 pullout couches in the main living area. Cook meals in your well equipped kitchen, dine at one of our nearby restaurants, or let us cater your meals. Laundry facilities are available if needed.

For area excursions the ethnic city of Thunder Bay is a short 10 minute drive from here. Fort William Historical Park, Terry Fox Monument, Kakabeka Falls and one of our many Amethyst mines are wonderful to see. The list is endless for daily adventures available with many area conservation areas, parks, community venues, and sports centres. You can enjoy all of the beauty that the Great Lake Superior and Thunder Bay have to offer.

Our location is perfect for guests traveling for medical appointments as we are located just 12 km from Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre.

Thunder Bay is located just 35 minutes from the U.S. border, making it convenient to explore many other areas of interest.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: We have been a life long residents of Thunder Bay. We decided to renovate our home to include a private living space for guests so others could share the beauty that we get to enjoy every day living here. Our children are grown and have moved on to other cities. I work part time from the home and run a small home business, while my husband Ed works full time. We do not have any pets.

                  Why the Owner Chose Thunder Bay:
                  This location has the beauty of country right in the city limits. Everything is accessible within minutes. Thunder Bay is a beautiful place to live and visit with all of it's natural beauty. We are close to Conservation areas to enjoy nature and are minutes away from several golf courses. Cross country and downhill ski areas are minutes from our home.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We have developed a relationship with the owner of Franki's Pizza. During your stay here, you can enjoy the best pizza in Thunder Bay delivered right to your door. This is a meal you will not want to miss out on!
