We made some last minute plans to head to Niagara on the Lake for the long weekend and lucked out by being able to book a room here due to a last minute cancellation. This was our first experience in a B&B in this area and the Merlot House did not disappoint. Michael and Shirley were lovely and very helpful... More

My daughter, who is vegan, and I stayed here for a Mother's Day weekend. The accomodations were clean, peaceful, relaxing and it felt like a home away from home. Mike & Shirley were very welcoming and friendly, and great hosts. They prepared vegan meals for my daughter, which she raved about long after we got home. I have stayed at... More

My sisters and I and our husbands just spent the most amazing night at this B & B. The hosts were so accomodating and nice. Their home was so interesting with many antiques and collections but nothing seemed crowded or overdone. The rooms were so comfortably furnished and contained anything you could need. The common room contained a fridge, wine... More

My husband and I just returned from a fabulous 2 night stay at this beautiful bed and breakfast to celebrate our anniversary. Mike and Shirley were such welcoming and gracious hosts. Our bedroom, the Chardonnay Suite , was a peaceful oasis and beautifully decorated. Baked treats and chocolates welcomed us as we returned to our room each day. The breakfasts... More

From the moment that my husband and I arrived at Merlot House, we felt welcomed and at home. Our stay was relaxing and very private. Shirley made sure that we knew where everything was , let us know when breakfast was served, what to do if we needed anything and then gave us our privacy. The accommodations were clean, spacious...

Our stay was for two nights in November 2014. The wonderful McBrides, were so graciously welcoming to us. They genuinely care about their guests and made our stay very special, comfortable and private too. They welcomed us with a kind note of birthday wishes, fresh cut roses and chocolates. Shirley and Michael McBride prepared two delicious and very attractive breakfasts... More

I proudly brought a friend to visit Niagara-on-the-lake (from the UK), and made the decision last minute during busy season! Mike and Shirley were so accommodating, and are perfect hosts. The bedrooms are cosy and large, the breakfast was completely delicious (you won't need lunch!), the house itself is very lovely. It's everything (and more) you'd expect from a first... More

My husband and I stayed two nights at this lovely bed and breakfast recently. It was situated very close to the shopping and restaurants in Niagra-on-the-Lake. The innkeepers, Mike and Shirley, were warm and friendly and helped us reserve tickets to the theater. Our room was very neat and comfortable. Breakfasts were absolutely fantastic. Our hot egg dish was to... More

We had stayed here two years ago and when it came time to plan our honeymoon it wasn't difficult to imagine spending our relaxing time away back at this B&B.

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.
