My husband and I stayed here this past February. This pictures of the house online looked nice, but once we were inside the B&B, we were really able to appreciate its beauty. Our room was very luxurious and clean. The hosts were very friendly and had lots of information/recommendations to share about Thunder Bay. We especially enjoyed the breakfast. We...

I stayed there three nights and absolutely everything was terrific. Start with the front door, a masterpiece, the likes of which aren't made any more. Once the door open, there's the hubbie and wife team (retired teachers) who greet you as if you're an old friend. The house is a spacious old mansion owned by a former coal baron. It...

We recently booked all 4 rooms. The rooms are all lovely, with great mattresses and pillows. Lovely bathrooms! The house itself has great rooms and wonderful porches and gardens to spend the afternoon relaxing. Breakfast was delicious, Dorothy and Tom wonderful hosts. I would only as them to consider a king size bed for the huge suite at the front...

We are from Minnesota, and we brought a friend from England with us. We all thought the breakfasts were elegant and delicious, and the home is beautifully maintained and decorated. The mansion is in close proximity to the lake and many fine downtown restaurants. Tom and Dorothy are very good hosts, and we can't wait to return. Pat and Al...

Dorothy and Tom Walch run one of the very best B&B's we've ever experienced anywhere. It's almost worth the trip to Thunder Bay just to stay with them. The house is spacious and beautiful, rooms are impeccable, and food is superb. The Walches really take care of you too. They are gracious hosts, and fun to talk to. Do yourself...

My husband daughter and I stayed at McVicar manor for 5 days. We were attending a family wedding. As we were greeted at the door, Tom and Dorothy made us fell like family. As a matter of fact we are family, our son married their daughter, while we were visiting. This is not just any B&B, the walsh's have brought...

My husband and I spent two nights here on a recent trip to Lake Superior region. Everything was wonderful here. The gardens are a true delight. The breakfasts were delicious. We were in two different rooms since we reserved late but that went very well. Both rooms were very nice. Excellent hospitality and we will be back if we travel...

The author and motivational speaker Charles Swindoll wrote what many people in all walks of life acknowledge ... that "the difference between something good and something great is attention to detail." Dorothy and Tom's generous hospitality and respect for their guests is reflected in this 'gift of attention': the bathroom has everything that you may need including quality products from...

My wife and I aren't usually big B&B fans, but our stay with Dorothy and Tom couldn't have been a better example of hospitality and graciousness at it's best. From the moment you arrive you feel welcomed into very comfortable surroundings. From our beautiful bedroom (and bathroom), to the gardens outside, everything is in tip-top shape due to the hard...

From the luxury bed linens and delicious breakfast to the architectural detail and art work that graces the walls, McVicar Manor whispers charm and sophistication as soon as you walk in the door. Hosts, Dorothy and Tom, only add to the atmosphere with their warm welcome. The guest livingroom with its comfortable leather couches is the perfect place to curl...

“Every one of the 4 room has its own special charms - one of ours had a balcony and ensuite, the other room had separate, excellent bath”

“I loved the room with the balcony overlooking McVicar Creek, back of the house, exceptionally quiet .”

“I am sure that the rooms with baths are the best, especially the turret room. We shared a bathroom and that was just fine.”

“The Manor Room is sunnier due to the number of windows. The McVicor Room is darker (great for sleeping a little later) but has a wonderful balcony overlooking the gardens. Just to keep in mind as this time of year (June) it is light until after 10 PM and the sun comes up around 5 AM.”
