We recently stayed at The Historic Lyons House and could not be happier with our experience. The home and furnishings are fantastically preserved and certainly harken back to an elegant bygone age. This home is a jewel not to be missed. Of course the hosts and their incredible breakfasts were every bit as special as the home. We would not... More

This was our second trip to Niagara-on-the-Lake. We chose the Lyons House Bed & Breakfast because of the reviews in Trip Advisor. The Bed & Breakfast was easy to find and comfortable walking distance to the shops and restaurants on Queen St. and the Festival Theatre. While you could walk to one or two of the wineries, most are an... More

My girlfriend and I stayed for one night this past weekend. It was our first time doing winery tours in NOTL and it would not have been as enjoyable as it was if we stayed at any other B&B. After doing a full day on Friday with a wine tour company, Howard sat with us after (the unbelievable) breakfast Saturday... More

We were at the Lyons House this past weekend. There were four of us in our group. First off I want to say that 5 stars is not enough, it would be a 10+++. Howard and Jolanta greeted us at the door when we arrived with genuine smiles. They made us feel right at home. The bedrooms are spacious and... More

We received the romance package as a wedding present. This was the perfect retreat to unwind after the wedding. We were amazed that such a tranquil spot was located within walking distance of so many of the things that we wanted to see. From the moment we arrived, Yolanta and Howard took care of everything. Howard helped us to plan... More

The house is lovely, the rooms are very nice and comfortable, breakfasts delicious but more than this the hosts are so helpful and gracious that you feel like you are staying in the home of wonderful friends. Restaurant suggestions, reservations, ideas of what to do, done better than a concierge of any hotel I've stayed in. We had a truly... More

How often do you find every aspect of your B&B experience top notch? From the moment I stepped in the door and was greeted by my hosts Yolanta & Howard, to the quality and ambience of the entire home & gardens, the room furnishings, the complimentary beverage fridge, and especially the fabulous breakfasts, I could not have enjoyed my stay...

We celebrated our 5 year anniversary in Niagara-On-The-Lake as my wife booked this establishment. I had no expectations as I was given little detail except that it had very good reviews and my only job was to follow the directions on the GPS to get us there. There is ample parking for guests and when we went inside, we were... More
