We spent 3 nights at the Historic Lyons House in June when visiting NOTL to attend the Shaw festival. We have visited NOTL many times but this was the first time we stayed at the Lyons. It was delightful. The house is lovely, the accommodations clean and comfortable and the location is central and an easy walk to the theatres.... More

This was my first visit to Niagara-on-the-Lake and I decided to stay at a B&B rather than a generic hotel. I picked Historic Lyons House based on the location - a couple of blocks from the main shopping/restaurant area, the great garden in the back and the extremely positive reviews. Jolanta and Howie were absolutely charming! Very warm, personable and... More

Lyons House has moved into first place on our best B&B ever list. While our expectations were met on "the usual suspects" - a clean, comfortable room, en suite bath, good location, parking - it was the "greatly exceeds expectations" that made the difference. The breakfasts were first rate - eggs Benedict with fresh fruit and croissants the first day,... More

We stayed here last fall with another couple. The B&B is beautiful, very clean and convenient to shops and restaurants. The breakfasts were amazing. The owners are very nice and helpful (gave us tons of wine sampling cards); however, Howie is kind of pushy and intrusive. He wants to plan the perfect itinerary for you, which is probably fine for... More

My partner and I came to celebrate my birthday and do a little winery touring. Howie and Jolanta were simply marvelous hosts.

This has been an incredibly relaxing stay again. Our visits to Niagara on the Lake would not be as wonderful as they were if not for our gracious hosts, Yolanta and Howard. The historical Lyons House is full of charm and elegance, starting with the gourmet breakfast and ending with a stroll around their beautifully serene and landscaped gardens. Our... More

This was our second year staying at this charming, historical B&B. We have recommended it to many of our friends who have also enjoyed it. We love the gracious hosts, the ideal location, the very comfortable and beautifully decorated bedroom, the gourmet breakfast and the overall, outstanding experience! Look forward to our next year's visit. Thanks.

My wife and I visited the Lyons House on June 18-20 of 2014, It was our first visit there. The house was very beautiful inside and out, we just loved the feel. Howard and his wife were both amazing hosts and awesome cooks, they would help us plan each day so that we could maximize our visit. We had such... More

Stayed for 6 nights at this beautiful Guest House and couldn't have asked for more during our stay. The house itself is perfectly located, beautiful decorated, extremely comfortable and above all cozy. Our bedroom was nicely furnished, with a comfortable large bed, lounge chairs, great tv set and a really well appointed bathroom with a spacious shower. Fresh towels and... More

The pictures online do this charming Bed and Breakfast no justice it's hard to capture the beauty and charm that this place is oozing with in a photo. It is an absolutely gorgeous house that is very tastefully decorated, cozy and comfortable. We hadn't stayed at a B&B before and were worried about privacy and having to tiptoe around -... More
