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, ON, Canada:
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!
