We spent two nights with the McBrides and were completely impressed with their home, their hospitality and all the amenities that make a B&B special. The breakfast part was so good that we even were able to skip lunch. We will return.

We spent two nights at the Merlot House and were incredibly pleased with our stay. Mike and Shirley are the consummate hosts! The Merlot Room in which we stayed was clean, comfortable and very inviting. The same can be said for the Chardonnay Room in which our in-laws stayed. Breakfast on both days was delicious and the presentation incredible! What... More

Mike and Shirley manage to combine a professionally run business with a relaxed elegance that makes a stay at Merlot House a unique pleasure. The artistic additions from their many travels enhance the feeling of staying in their home rather than a sterile over hyped expensive hotel . Gourmet breakfasts were served in a beautifully appointed breakfast room. Lovely deck... More

We have stayed multiple times at the Merlot House and will not stay anywhere else when we come to Niagara on the Lake. The amenities are comfortable and beautiful. The food is so beautiful, we take pictures of it to remember from year to year, and is varied, delicious and ample in amount. Mike and Shirley could not be more... More

Mike and Shirley are the best. Our stay exceeded expectations in every way - the breakfasts were incredible and the rooms were beautiful and very clean. Our hosts were very thoughtful, even going so far as to buy pastries from a local bakery with a happy birthday message for my wife (it was her 30th birthday). When they cleaned our... More

Just stayed two nights in the twin room--cant say enough about this beautiful home and the owners, Mike and Shirley. There are only 3 rooms, one king, one queen and the twin each with own bath. Everything from linens to the furnishings very high-end though price was considerably more reasonable than Hilton outside of town. HIghly recommend and will definitely... More

My husband and I didn't know what to expect when we booked a suite at Merlot House. It was a wonderful experience. High quality in everything: the food, the cleanliness, the quietness, the hosts that were simply awesome. Thank you so much for the memorable experience at the Merlot House!!

My husband & I recently enjoyed a 2-night stay at Merlot House, in the capable hands of its owners & hosts, in their beautifully appointed B&B. They are very easy to get to know and we immediately fell into conversation whenever our paths crossed throughout the stay. Michael & Shirley are very friendly, sociable people. The home has many features... More

This was our first stay at the Merlot House and I am so glad my husband and I choose to stay here. What a fabulous B&B! Our hosts were gracious, friendly, and professional. The home looks like it's been professionally decorated with a blend of antiques and a nod to New England. And that is just the start! Our room... More

Shirley and Mike have created a place that attracts like-minded people. We may have been extra-lucky, but we were delighted to share the breakfast table with theatre- and wine-afficianados from Cleveland and Rochester. That meant the conversation was lively and intelligent (and extended to late night, post-theatre get-togethers!). Breakfast on both days was just terrific - delicious and filling. We... More
