About Catharine and Brian

We (Brian, Catharine and Eloise) live in Thunder Bay and enjoy escaping to our cottage whenever we can. We love sharing our getaway with guests and strive to make your stay as easy and enjoyable as possible.

Catharine and Brian purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Catharine and Brian chose Ontario

A gorgeous lakefront property on spectacular north shore of Lake Superior. And yes we do have lake access right out front so you are welcome to bring your water toys, go for a quick dip or just sit on the shore and enjoy the view.

What makes this cottage unique

Quiet, private, peaceful getaway with all the amenities including a hot tub. Scenic hiking trails for all abilities overlooking Lake Superior and surrounding islands.

Very clean, comfortable, modern and true to what was promised in the description of the rental.

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful location, just far enough from the waterfront but close enough to enjoy the beautiful view. The natural surroundings are what make this property a truly relaxing experience, and it is definitely worth the drive from wherever one is coming from. The yard was neat and well-kept. The fire pits and BBQ well- maintained and everything was very presentable upon arrival.

The interior of the cabin was clean and comfortable. Everything was labelled, including drawer contents and light switches, which was very helpful! Instructions on how to use the heat systems, hot tub, electronics, appliances etc. were very clear. Very cozy, modern and beautifully furnished/decorated to set the mood alongside the natural surroundings. Additional helpful extras included games and movies for use, extra blankets and towels, bathrobes for the hot tub, common cooking/baking ingredients and a map to the nearby hiking trails.

Very pleased with the quality of our stay and will definitely recommend this spot!!

Great visit to the Loon's Nest

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at the Loon's Nest. A very nice spot. The online description was accurate and the cabin was clean and well maintained. We had nice walks nearby and enjoyed a visit to Fort William Historical Park and to both a local potter and a local cheese maker.

Calm, peaceful and amazing

  • 5 of 5

The cottage (more like a home) is very well equipped and the decor is simply beautiful. We enjoyed quiet evenings by the campfire or cozied up to watch a good moovie (quite the selection!) Being never more than 45 minutes away from activities was quite pleasant. I would recommend this place to annyone; perfect for just a couple or a whole family to enjoy. Oh! And the hot tub was a nice touch, especially after a long hike up Mink Mountain Trails. Thank you Catherine and Brian for sharing your little slice of paradise!

Lovely Cottage and Vacation Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the Loon's Nest. The cottage is tastefully decorated and includes all of the extras that make it feel like home. Our family admired the setting out of doors, roasted marshmallows at the fire pit, played games (provided at Loon's Nest), pieced puzzles, soaked in the hot tub, and just enjoyed relaxing together all with the beautiful background of Thunder Bay.

Brian and Catharine have done an excellent job and we were not disappointed. Each room has been well-thought out and decorated beautifully. The property manager was very helpful and did all she could to make sure our needs were met.

We have already shared photos and our time at the Loon's Nest with friends and family and would encourage them to stay there if they were ever in Thunder Bay.

While in Thunder Bay, we hiked in Sleeping Giant Provincial Park (gorgeous!), mined at the Amethyst Mine Panorama (astonishing!), feasted at Rooster's Bistro in downtown Thunder Bay (amazing food!), played mini golf, rode in a sailboat around the Bay with Harbor Sailing Tours (fantastic!), and ate at Neebing Restaurant (highly recommend their BBQ nachos.) After all of our traveling around Thunder Bay, it was relieving to know we were coming back to a comfortable cottage to rest and spend our evenings in.

Truly, everything about the Loon's Nest met and exceeded our expectations. We would definitely stay there again!

Beautiful!

We had a great weekend at the Loons Nest! Everything was as advertised, and very clean. The hot tub was pre heated to 97 and was ready for us to use. We plan on coming back someday in the future!

First trip to Canada

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Loon's Nest was everything we expected. We were looking for something close to Thunder Bay, but far enough from the city to experience and enjoy the north woods. The view from the deck (and hot tub) is amazing. I especially loved that there was no motor noise what-so-ever from boats, planes, cars, traffic, etc. Every time we drove into the cabin, we saw wildlife--fox and a mother bear with her two cubs. We have stayed at many VRBOs and this has been the best so far. The cabin is well stocked with whatever you might need, everything is clean and organized. The beds are amazingly comfortable. There was absolutely no problem with the hot tub chemicals--as mentioned in an earlier review. We spent time between Grand Portage (Isle Royale) and Fort William. As a last minute detour, we went up to the amethyst mine (about an hour from the cabin). This was my two sons' favorite activity.
