Lovely Queen suites with nice common areas, including hot tub, pool and tennis. Friendly hospitality, birdsong and a tasty breakfast, not far from beach on Lake Ontario. We are recommending to friends and will definately visit again.

We had a wonderful stay. The room was pleasant and the breakfast was first class. The owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome. They provided us with information about the wine tours and helped us on our way. Thank you very much for all the support, help and friendliness! Pieter van Rooyen and Filistea Naude South... More

We booked this B& B for a wine tour weekend. Very nice, very clean and really nice food. The couple who own the B& B were very nice and it was a very quiet place. HOWEVER.... we were 3 couples who were away for the weekend without our children. Some of us for the first time ever. Two members of... More

We enjoyed a delightful stay at Silver Birches by-the-Lake. The rooms were comfortable, accommodating and clean. Breakfast was always a delightful and delicious experience which was enhanced with the poolside view. We particularly loved the outdoor spaces, the refreshing pool and the peacefulness of the front verandah. We couldn't wait to grab a coffee and sit in the warm breezes,... More

We began our tour of Canada with 2 nights here. What a lovely place and lovely people. Great rooms and breakfast. It is situated almost on the lake and is really convenient for Niagara Falls and Toronto

My friend and I stayed for three nights here and we loved it! We visited vineyards, took in a Shaw Festival play, sampled some wonderful restaurants, and always had our peaceful Silver Birches retreat to come back to. The grounds, including pool, gardens, tennis court, pond, were just beautiful with a peach orchard right across the street. Lots of places... More

This is a lovely quiet place with attentive, interested proprietors. We found it very quiet, totally unlike the earlier review that indicated they could hear highway noise. We enjoyed driving around the area and seeing the lovely peach trees. We were surprised our rooms were in the basement which was somewhat damp. There was a dehumidifier but it was not... More

We always welcome constructive criticism from our guests, and it is unfortunate that you did not mention your concerns to us when we showed you the room, and were not given the opportunity to rectify the situation, or offer you alternative accommodation. We work very hard to ensure our guests' are more than happy with their stay at SilverBirches (hence... More

My mother, sister, and I stayed here for a Friday through Sunday weekend. We have been looking forward to our annual girl's weekend for some time and I am thrilled my mom found this gem. It is not far off the highway, however it feels like you are dropped in the middle of the country. There are wineries in every... More

Stayed at this excellent B&B the other weekend and really enjoyed myself. Enjoyed touring vineyards then hitting their poolside for rest and relaxation in the sun! The hosts were amazing people from Bath England. The breakfasts were off the charts and very delicious! I plan on going back again soon!
