The mist off Niagara Falls is so cooling that even on warm day; it's pleasant at Blue Gables. Older Home, Bed and Breakfast, what else do you need to read. Ok, a few more things. It is an older home, but from what I witnessed all the B&B's in Niagara are converted homes. This one is easy to find, about 100 years off the river and about a mile or so into town. The rooms are nice, decent sized for an older home Bedroom. Some of the rooms have their own bath attached, others use a community bath. Bed was comfortable, place was clean and attractive. There is coffee/tea maker available for anytime drinks and 1 1/2 friges available to store your own purchases. There are seating areas outside beside the house with a Coy Pond. The owners are Yvette and Joe, it's Joe's Coy pond and he is very knowledgeable.
Both owners were very knowledgeable concerning the area, local delis, bike and hiking paths. Be sure to ask then for any thing you are seeking, they probably know far better than what can be found via an internet search. Yvette and Joe are an interesting pair, Yvette loves the company and is very, very talkative. Not in a bad way!
Come and go as you please. Was given a key to front door and bedroom, so was able to come and go at my schedule which included a late night and early, early morning visit to the Falls.
Blue Gables (BG) is a 5 based on price and location. There are some rather high prices for the area, but BG met all expectations and the breakfast exceeded some. Yvette makes her own yogurt, not too sweet and no bitter after taste. She also does mini muffins with a center that is put in halfway thru the cooking cycle. Sorry, Yvette I gave up your secret. There is a more complete breakfast after the yogurt and muffin.
Wi-Fi, very important to me was part of the package, so if you do have to stay in touch, you can.
There are other B&B's in the area so the environment is rich for comparison. BG was just what I wanted it to be, a clean place to spend the night, decent food and a relaxing attmosphere
There are several size rooms to choose from, #2 was fine for me, small shower only item I would chan...
