We had a pleasant and enjoyable weekend at DownHome. Our friends and us traveled to Niagara on the Lake for a relaxing and enjoyable week and we definitely enjoyed ourselves. James and Sandy the owners were very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was delicious both days we stayed. The our rooms and the common areas were neat and tidy, my wife... More

The room was quite comfortable. The breakfasts were very tasty. The proprietors' hospitality was lovely. That's the trifecta for a B&B. The proprietors were very helpful in planning our siteseeing. We decided to check out local wineries. They made uniformly good recommendations (particularly Colaneri!) and provided chits for free tastings and maps so we could find our way around. When... More

The first sign this place needs some TLC is when you pull up and the white plastic urns out front have a couple of old logs thrown in them. This could be a beautiful place if the owners cared more, but instead we had a mediocre experience for a lot of money. Not right in the downtown core, it not... More

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
