We spent 2 nights and were sorry to leave. Can't think of anything the least bit negative to report. Everything was PERFECT.. The room, the private bathrooms, the common areas, the private balcony, the breakfasts, the winery coupons, the service, free parking..... I could go on and on !!!All the above mentioned and MORE makes it the best choice. Alec... More

We stayed two nights and can't wait to come back! 3-course homemade breakfast was so delicious. Romantic and warm room with large bathroom and balcony. Nice welcoming touches everywhere, including full amenities in bathroom, coffee maker with various teas, hot chocolate, and coffee. Fridge with pop and water and snacks when you get the munchies. Wonderfully decorated and walking distance... More

Spent 2 nights and wished it was 20 - for the breakfasts alone! Extremely comfortable room and "common areas", all capped off by the exceptional graciousness of Alex & Deanna. A very quiet location and serene setting along with great convenience to "Main Street" Niagara-On-The-Lake. Couple this all together and put it into wine country and what could be better?!

My fiancé and I stayed here a total of 4 nights. We joked about potentially having a repeat on the breakfast menu but it never happened!! Every morning there was a three-course breakfast including yummy scones and homemade jelly and jam! Deana and Alec were the perfect hosts. Readily willing to give you information about your day's plans, saving us... More

Wanted to see Niagara on the Lake and tried a Bed and Breakfast. Lots to choose from but the explorer house caught my attention. When we went there it was in a quiet location. The Bishops were friendly and enthusiastic about their little piece of paradise. The rooms were spacious, clean and had wonderful themes. The attention to detail showed... More

We loved everything about our stay at Explorer House. The travel themed decor lent an exotic feel, the bedroom/bath was spacious and so comfortable. Our room had a balcony overlooking their back yard, so lovely! Breakfasts were delicious and plentiful, made even more special by the special table settings. Deanna and Alec expertly guided us around their beautiful town, restaurant... More

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
