My partner and I spent 2 nights at this lovely historical home. It is very well located and walking distance from the falls but far enough away from the craziness that is this tourist destination. Value wise it is superior to what you will find at Niagara-on-the-lake and a great destination for exploring both locales. The delightful breakfasts provide a... More

Just what you would expect from a good bed and breakfast. Food was excellent. Helena was a wonderful hostess. Location was within walking distance to nearest bus stop. Could walk to the falls in about 30 minutes if you wanted to Reasonable rates in a quiet area. Off street free parking. Would love to return.

This is the best place in the Niagara region! We've stayed here 3 times now in the last 4 years. It is our most favorite B&B of all the ones we've ever stayed at. Helena is an amazing host and chef!... every breakfast is something new and delicious!! She knows the area and history extremely well and can provide a... More

This B & B is ideally located for those who want the convenience of parking their car and walking to the falls and still being close enough to drive to beautiful Niagara on the Lake. Helena, your hostess is wonderful and funny. Knows all the places to go and places to eat! Thank you Helena! Only complaint is that the... More

Visited Niagara for two nights as a family to be greeted by the lovely Helena. We then proceeded to the top floor suite which I have to say was absolutely beautiful. The breakfast was exquisite, but what made the place stand out was Helena . She has a wealth of knowledge about the area and was always willing to help... More

We stayed here for our 25th anniversary getaway. We made the right choice! Helena, the owner, was welcoming and an excellent host. Breakfast was sit down and quality rivaled that of a high end restaurant. We stayed in the Queen Room. It was luxurious and the bed was sooo comfy! We recommend this BnB to all!

Clean, beautiful, proximate to attractions, period decor and a Mobile/Michelin quality food service for a fraction of a hotel that has a parking space 6feet from the door. It just doesn't get any better. Helena made our trip even better by helping us include important attractions we would have missed. A+

Absolutely fabulous stay! Loved the owner, Helena, she is truly a gem. She has amazing stories and went above and beyond to ensure our stay was a vacation. She made restaurant reservations, wine tour tips, and several suggestions. We were very pleased with every one of her recommendations. We were placed in one of the two fabulous suites and it...

We just got back from spending 3 nights at the inn and it was absolutely fantastic. We had a beautiful suite that was very cozy and clean. Aside from being a beautiful inn which is walking distance to the falls, casino and other attractions, what really made it special was the host, Helena. Not only does she serve an incredile... More
