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. Mike & Shirley are great hosts and they made us feel very welcome each time. The Merlot Suite that we stayed in was very warm and comfortable and the breakfasts... More

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
