“Chef owned ace!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Most amazing breakfast you will ever taste. This chef owned b&b is likely the best stay we've had abroad, and our first in Canada. This place sets the bar high for b&b's everywhere, and its unlikely to be toped by anyone.

We came to Viv's Front Porch via the excellent reviews on tripadvisor, booking a last-minute weekend getaway to the Niagara region. We had a wonderful time. Viv and Les were very friendly and welcoming hosts, and their breakfasts were beautifully presented and soooo delicious. There were cookies laid out on our arrival, chocolate-covered strawberries in the fridge, and scrumptious muffins for us to take with us for mid-morning munching. The rooms were spacious, tastefully appointed, cozy, and clean. We peeked into all the rooms and they were all of the same high quality.
A wonderful Bed and Breakfast in the Niagara region!

Chose this property from the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor , and were not disappointed. The whole experience was wonderful from the enormous gourmet breakfast to the friendly hosts and the spotlessly clean accommodation. Viv and Les made our two night stay a joy and we would have no hesitation in returning if it becomes possible in the future. Try it - you will love it.

We only stayed at this lovely B&B for one night but ended up wishing we had stayed longer. We will definitely be going back again. We stayed in Bella's room, which was stunning and spacious with a large ensuite, but after touring the whole place, I don't think any room could have disappointed. Everything is clean and warm and comfortable. What added to our stay the most though was the wonderful couple, Viv and Les who own and run the B&B. They went above and beyond at all time, from the freshed baked cookies outside our room and personalized chocolate covered strawberries in our fridge, to added help giving us directions, recommendations, and even printing off info on specific things we asked about. They are kind and caring and hilarious! The breakfast was DIVINE. Truly. Look forward to it because it will not disappoint. Can't wait to return! :)

Room Tip: They're all great so don't worry too much about which one you get. :)

Viv and Les are two of the most welcoming people I have ever met. When we arrived we were greeted with a handshake and when we left we parted with a hug. That's how much of a connection my wife and I had with our hosts. Their place is spotless and the room was extremely inviting. Our overall description of the accommodations would be "relaxing and homely". Viv's attention to details is exceptional; from room design, common space layout, colours and the daily delivery of chocolate covered strawberries. My wife and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and I forgot to take our camera; Viv was more than willing to capture a few moments before we went out for our anniversary dinner and she even e-mail us the pictures.

The breakfast is extremely good. Les was as meticulous with preparing his gourmet dishes as Viv was in providing a welcoming atmosphere for us. In each of our sittings for breakfast, I lost count of the number of "mmms" and "oh this is so good" that we expressed as we enjoyed our tasty and very attractively presented meal.

While I have had the opportunity to stay at other B & Bs as well as many Inns, none can compare to my experience at Viv's Front Porch. The decor and ambience are first class and the hospitality of hosts, Viv and Les, can not be beat!
You can be sure that not only will I return but I will be recommending this B & B to all I know who might be considering visiting the Niagara area.
Thank you for an amazing time!

Stayed at this B&B for four superb nights, we stayed in Bellas room but all the rooms are lovely, fresh and very clean. Les and Viv couldn't do enough for us, they made us feel like we were at home. As for the three course breakfast they were all yummy!! The muffins and chocolate strawberrys were also a delightful treat.
Would recommend to anyone, this was by far the best accomodation we stayed in during our six week vacation.
Thanks to you both and the rest of your lovely family
