We have stayed at a number of B&B's in different regions of Ontario and this one provides, by far, the most superb accommodation and hospitality that we have experienced. The accommodation is 5 star and is impeccably and interestingly appointed with tasteful and interesting art from around the globe. The accommodation is spacious and luxurious, the hosts - Deanna and... More

We had a fabulous stay at this incredible B&B! Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys the B&B experience. The accomodation is 5+ with lots to enjoy, the balcony, the social lounge, the 3 course breakfast. Scrumptious! Deanna and Alec have wonderful pictures of their travels throughout the house that are just out of this world. We will not hesitate to... More

Spent 2 night's here in mid-August and it is by far and away the best B&B we've stayed at. From the host's beautiful picture's that adorn the walls, to the very comfy (huge!) beds, to the Jacuzzi bath, to the amazing 3 course breakfasts. It is clear that no expense has been spared. We also got engaged during our visit... More

My wife and I had a wonderful 2 days in Niagara-on-the-Lake, the highlight being our stay at the Explorer House. Our hosts- Alec and Deanna- provided us with wonderful accommodations in their beautiful home. Alec's gourmet presentations from the kitchen welcomed us each morning. Deanna provided great suggestions for our tour of the area. If you want a warm, convenient,... More

The rooms are so luxurious. I love the high quality decor. Very clean. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony. Yummy breakfasts and friendly hosts. We took advantage of the 2 block walk to The Old Winery Restaurant and the Zoom bicycle winery tour.

There was nothing not to love about the Explorer House. I stayed there during a very busy weekend in NOTL and enjoyed solitude, beauty and exceptional hospitality. The Silk Road room is gorgeous--pictures taken in Asia by the hostess herself, adorn the room: along with many other objects and trinkets that made me feel like I was thousands of miles... More

Explorer House has all you could need and want for touring Niagara. The guest rooms are beautiful and of a very high standard. There are common areas for guests that worked well for us as we were four people in two rooms and it was lovely to have a place to chill wine, and then enjoy it together. While we... More

Just returned from a wonderful 2 night stay at Explorer House. We are repeat guest to this B&B but our first visit with the new Owners Deanna & Alec. The house has been re-decorated beautifully in their own style. Looks fantastic and feels warm, comfortable and homey.

We were very pleased with the cleanliness and comfort of this B&B. The hosts are very accommodating. We agree with the comments of all the previous reviews so I won't repeat them. We will be recommending Explorer House to our friends. Kudos to Deanna & Alex for creating such an artistic and enjoyable environment. Well done!

Our room was warm and inviting; breakfast was plentiful and delicious. The room decore was excellent and themed from travel around the world. You will have an excellent stay with Deanna and Alec Bishop for your trip to Niagara On The Lake experience. The locaion is far enough from the crowds around the main street of Niagara On The Lake...
