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! The room was as comfortable as you could ever hope for, with some lovely little touches that really made it feel like home from home. The... More

Our stay was great, the rooms are beautiful, and the food was excellent. They seem to like it hot though and keep the thermostat around 25C in the summer - there is a fan on the ceiling in the room that works well. I have allergies and they made good efforts to accommodate. Unfortunately, I still ended up with a... More

Stayed in the "Bella" room. The hospitality was impeccable.... Spotless rooms, friendly and helpful owners with an amazing sense of humour, and a most excellent four star breakfast!! Couldn't ask for more.... Will definitely be back when we're in the area again....Thank you Viv and Les for a delightful experience!

I had a wonderful stay at Viv's Front Porch for 2 nights. Viv, Les and their daughter Gemma were fantastic and friendly hosts, and I can't say enough about the amazing 3-course breakfasts! The bed & breakfast itself was very welcoming and inviting, clean and comfortable. I stayed in the Bella room, which had a very comfy king-sized bed, and... More

A great place to stay when checking out wine country. Viv and Les have a great place that is very clean and welcoming. Will definitely stay here again when back in town. Enjoyed the modern twist on what was a very good English brekkie! Filled me up so much that I didn't eat lunch.

My husband and I had a lovely stay at Viv's. The room was absolutely spotless and comfortable and all the little niceties were thought of (toiletries etc). The breakfast was amazing and Viv and her family are such warm and welcoming hosts. I would definitely stay here on my next trip to NOTL.

We just returned from a visit to Niagara-on-the-Lake and were fortunate to have stayed at this wonderful B&B. It is located about 3 miles from the center of town which was perfect because we were close to wineries, great bike routes and trails, yet not in the middle of all the crowds. The house is lovely and in a pleasant... More
