We were in town for a wedding recently and stayed at the DownHome. The experience was definitely unique. The building itself is nice, although the decor is eccentric. Location is great and within walking distance of downtown. Our room itself was clean and very comfortable, although the bathroom was dated and I was surprised that there was no TV (there... More

I recently stayed with Jim and Sandy and they were nothing but helpful and gracious. Thanks! The main floor of the B&B is well decorated with lots of little lovely touches, courtesy of Sandy, I am sure, The back deck and yard are just perfect spots to rest and read. The room I had "the Bordeau" faced the front of... More

We stayed at DownHome for our first wedding anniversary, and were impressed with the owners, Sandy and James, then. Well, this time, for our tenth anniversary, we decided to return, and certainly weren't disappointed with our choice! The inside of the B&B hasn't changed a lot from what we could tell, and was still comfortable, with lovely furnishings. But they've... More

My wife and I stayed here while attending a wedding. Sandy and James are very hospitable and quite proud of their home (as they should be). The breakfast was very good, and the best part is their gorgeous yard which is landscaped to perfection complete with a tranquil fountain. Rooms are great, the beds are quite high but their is...

We were given a weekend away + wine tour for our wedding in the summer of 2011, on the gift certificate there was an expiry date of summer 2012. We intended to use this gift certificate the following spring. I happened to have just become pregnant so I called and asked if we could postpone our trip because I didn't... More

We booked last minute, with another couple and wanted to show them what Ontario has to offer. Niagara on the Lake is one of our favourite spots to come. Upon arrival the owners were sitting out on the front step enjoying their beverages. After handling the room arrangements and paying for the room we were informed that breakfast was at... More

We spent the Canada Day weekend here as part of my birthday treat, including two shows at the Shaw Festival Theatre. We had a different room this time, but it was as clean and comfortable as our first visit a few years ago. Breakfast was a deliciously filling treat. Sandy was aware of my diabetes and made me aware of... More

DownHome B&B is run by a very friendly couple, Sandy and James. Their B&B is located on a quiet residential street, 4 blocks exactly from the Shaw George Theatre, and about 6 blocks from the Festival Theatre. The B&B has three bedrooms on the second floor -- the two I saw were comfortable in size, well-appointed (including small refrigerator) and... More

I went to Niagara on the Lake on the Labour Day long week end. I thought of booking a room in august, and apparently it was too late, cause all the places within 200 dollar range were taken for that date. when i saw a room available in Downhome, i booked it right away, thinking that if there's nowhere else...

We stayed for 1 night in July. Sandy and James are very welcoming and friendly. This was our first bed and breakfast experience and we did enjoy it. We stayed in the Beaujolais room and it had everything we needed for our stay. The room did not have a TV, but this this did not bother us as we were... More
