The scenic backyard view at McVicar Bed & Breakfast walking distance to downtown
The front porch is big enough to play a game of rugby. There’s a beautiful garden with an iron sculpture of a cyclist, and bright orange tiger lilies and lavender and yellow flowers.

The Charm of a B & B Steeped in History Sure, I could’ve stayed in any number of hotels on my visit to Thunder Bay,…

What the heck, I thought, as I wanted to get a birds-eye view of Thunder Bay, a Northern Ontario city that I…
