The grounds were impeccable, as was the whole house. All the rooms looked equally beautiful and spacious. Breakfast was amazing - freshly baked scones, fresh fruit with... More

We had a wonderful stay at this B&B and would highly reccomend it to anyone traveling to the Niagara area. We stayed in two different rooms... both were beautifully decorated, comfortable, clean and had spacious bathrooms as well as private outdoor balconies. Explorer House is lovely inside and out, with a newly installed outdoor hot tub and firepit. Breakfast was... More

Not knowing what to expect from a bed and breakfast, we were so thrilled to be treated to a beautifully decorated, immaculately clean accommodation including outdoor patio and hot tub in a lovely garden setting. The breakfast meal was elegant and delicious and the hosts were extremely gracious and helpful with tourist advice. We will definitely be back!
