“What a wonderful experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Having booked into Viv's Front Porch B&B for the Thanksgiving weekend Arlene and I expected the usual
nice home with clean furnishings and good food. Instead we entered a home that whispered Welcome as we
entered and exceeded all our expectations in every way. Spotlessly clean, exceedingly well furnished, space
to share conversation with other guests indoors or out and the most delicous breakfasts which even included
dessert. Thank you Viv and Les for a wonderful weekend and we look forward to seeing you very soon.

Room Tip: Describe your preferences to Viv or Les and the will ensure your complete comfort.

A warm welcome, wonderful three course breakfast (saved money on lunch because it really wasn't necessary), and chocolate covered strawberrries upon our return in the evening all contributed to making this a really special place. Host and hostess are extremely helpful, the rooms are lovely, and the location is perfect- quiet and far enough from town to avoid hustle-bustle and close enough to make it a quick trip into town for the shows and sight-seeing. Will definitely stay here again when we return which we definitely will.

Room Tip: They are all good.

Thank you for taking the time to write your lovely review. We always try to make all of our guests feel welcome and at home and remembering that they are on vacation we try to treat them special. We may not be in the centre of the hustle and bustle of the town but we are amongst the most finest wineries in the Niagara Region. We are looking forward to seeing you again so we can make your mini vacation a special one.

We stayed here at the end of September on a trip to Niagara Falls. Viv and Les were so welcoming and the three course breakfasts were absolutely fantastic. Our rooms and the guest living area were extremely comfortable and well equipped. Les made the most delicious muffins every morning mmmmm............
Well worth a visit.

Room Tip: All three rooms are excellent

Always gave the thoughful "little extras" and seemed to have thought things through from the visitor's perspective. Super charming! Thank-you Viv!
The breakfast here has now beat out a fine Dubai resort as most legendary of all hotel breakfasts!

What a great time we had staying at Viv's and Niagara on the Lake for our Silver Anniversary. This was our first time staying at a B&B. They have set a very high standard which will be hard for anyone to beat. They really went the extra mile to make our stay special! We were even surprised by several unexpected treats that made our 25th anniversary celebration even nicer. Our room was fantastic and everything was so clean and well decorated throughout the home. The breakfast prepared by Les were absolutely amazing and you can tell he loves the art of cooking. Both are very gracious hosts and work really hard to make your stay the best is can be. Viv made us all laugh with her dry sense of humor and may even catch you off guard at times. You will not be dissappointed with your stay here. We hope to be back again soon. -Jim & Chris

We are glad that we were able to give you the service that anyone deserves on their Silver Wedding Anniversary. We enjoy being able to pamper our guests a little when they have their special days and we feel honoured that you chose Viv's Front Porch to share it with you. We hope that you have many more Happy Anniversary's together and if you ever decide to come back to share it with us again we would not hesitate to pamper you again.

The nicest kindest people await you. If you want to stay in the best B&B in Niagra on the lake then you've found the right place. The breakfasts are out of this world, the accommodation is outstanding and the hosts treat you like their family. We did not want to leave this magical place and are already planning our next journey. Many thanks to Viv & Les, Daryl
