I brought my 2 daughters and my parents to experience Niagara on the Lake and chose Viv's Front Porch based on the previous reviews. The reviews were spot on and we greatly enjoyed our overnight stay. The rooms were warm and welcoming, Viv and Les were very hospitable, and the breakfast was delicious. The location is nice and quiet with... More

Very enjoyable experience. Les and Viv were very welcoming and took the time to share some of the local history as well point us to places of interest. The place was very comfortable and the food was great. We would definitely recommend that you stay here if you are looking for a nice cozy friendly place to stay.

So glad we found this bed and breakfast to stay at. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left we felt well taken care of and extremely comfortable. Viv and Les are amazing hosts! We were impressed with all the special little touches and the breakfast was truly exceptional. You will not be disappointed!

Viv and Les were the sweetest hosts. Gracious, caring and great conversationalists. The room was luxurious and clean. The food was imaginative, delicious and beautifully plated. Five stars! Best B&B ever.

Right from the minute we pulled in, we were greeted with warm hearts and laughter. Viv and Les run a wonderful retreat from the every day stress. We enjoyed the great movie selection, sparkling cider (which Viv accommodated because my wife is expecting), chocolate strawberries, comfy bed, clean room, and AMAZING breakfast. To say Les' cooking is fantastic would be... More

This is my second stay at Viv's Front Porch. My first stay (last year) was beyond my expectations, and my second stay was even better! Viv and Les greet their guests with such openness and kindness, which made it easy to choose this B&B when I needed a solo getaway. I stayed in the Oriental room, which is beautifully decorated....

Just WOW! From the moment we arrived, we felt at home. Viv and Les were so accommodating with any requests or needs. (They are quite witty as well.) The entire place is very clean, beautifully decorated and welcoming. There are so many unexpected little details that continue above and beyond that confirm that we picked the right place for our...

A few weeks ago me and my husband traveled to Niagra on the Lake. After reading reviews we decided to stay at Viv's front porch. Our stay was great. Our hosts could not have been warmer or more helpful. Our room was perfect and the breakfasts... five star food. I suggested they start cooking classes. Staying at Viv's you feel... More

Did a 3 week road trip through Canada and the U.S, stayed in 10 different places and viv's front porch was by far the best, and we stayed at the Venetian in vegas too!
