This was our second visit to keefer mansion. The first time we stayed in a room on the top level which was amazing. I don't think that level is available anymore. However, the current stay was great either way. Absolutely love the old ambiance that decor provides. The B&B is in a quiet town, perfect for wining down. We enjoyed... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying for one Friday night to do some biking around Niagara on Saturday. We were very pleasantly surprised by the experience. Granted staying in downtown Thorold is not high on everyone's list when coming to Niagara but you should consider the Keefer Mansion as a great option. You can book for just... More

We recently attended a wedding at The Keefer Mansion, The food was second to none. The staff was professional, friendly and welcoming and the property exquisite. Check it out. Don't miss out!! This property and its amenities will rival any 5 Star properties

The chef was able to create everything gluten free for me (even the amazing sponge cake) All 9 courses I could actually eat! And boy were they good! Course after course we just... More

We had about a dozen people looking for an 'end-of-year appreciation dinner' and the Keefer Mansion was the perfect spot. The venue is simply stunning, everyone felt like royalty. Chef Erik prepared a great meal to suit everyone's needs. Highly recommended for a unique and memorable event.

The staff at Keefer make your stay exemplary. The young manager and his girlfriend Tia made our stay- they were so kind, so well-informed, so customer focused and on the ball. The housekeeping staff were also very kind indeed and full of wonderful stories about the history of the place and its (friendly!) ghosts- though of course we didn't sense... More

A business meeting and dinner was organized at the Keefer for a group of about 30 from all over Ontario who had a great deal of interest in built heritage. The dinner was wonderful, the service excellent, the staff attentive, and the venue was perfect for a group such as this. They had a tour of the building and everyone... More

We had a chance to dine at the restaurant in the Keefer Mansion. This is definitely NIagara region's best kept secret. The Hostess / server did a great job of telling us the history of the building. What a great charming Inn overlooking the Welland canal. Dinner was excellent with some great options as well as terrific specials. Very nice... More

We visited 13 venues in the Niagara Region before selecting the Keefer Mansion Inn to hold our wedding ceremony and reception on Saturday December 29th, 2012. It was the perfect setting for a small wedding - 31 total. We were able to seat everyone at one long table in the large dining room, the smaller dining room was able to... More
