“Best B&B ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Jane and Steve make you feel at home from the very first minute by giving a tour through the villa and the garden with the beautiful pool, telling what to do in the neighbourhood, best wineries, best restaurants and making bookings for you. The rooms are very romantic, silent, comfortable and luxury. The breakfast in the morning, together with all guests on one big table was delicious, everything was self made with a touch of herbs from the garden. We played golf twice at the golfcourse in front of Lakewinds and the Whirlpool, on the way to Nigara Falls. Both were nice golfcourses. We had a superb stay in Nigara on the Lake, thanks to Jane and Steve!!

Room Tip: We were on the top floor, Sans Souci, which we enjoyed very much.

Thank you for your wonderful review and for choosing Lakewinds. The chat we had about the western economies and the Euro was very interesting, as it was from a perspective we rarely get to hear. If you ever get this way again, please come back.

We have been going to Lakewinds twice a summer for at least 8 years.
In June we go with 6 of our friends, In August we meet my brother and sister-in-law and their friends. Our rooms are always very comfortable, the breakfasts are most elegant
and delicious. There are lovely touches such as sherry and nuts in the afternoon at the front table and chocolates waiting at night when you get in from dinner and or a play.
When you are leaving there is a home-made package of cookies for the trip home.
Steve and Jane are great hosts. We have met many wonderful people here who seem to return the same weekends as us each year. I have not mentioned the beautiful gardens and pool that are available to guests. We usually bring wine and cheese and have our own little cocktail hour before the evening activities. We highly recommend Lakewinds Country Manor
as your home away from home.

Room Tip: They are all good. The room on the landing is the best! (in our opinion) Has a bath/spa on upper l...

My friend and I stayed at Lakewinds in June 2013 while visiting Niagara on the Lake's Shaw Festival. We stayed in the Florentine room, which had a king bed that could be separated into twin beds.

The room was lovely with great big windows and a view onto the Lake. We were only able to stay one night but wished we could have stayed longer. The grounds were well kept and we enjoyed walking around. The house reminded me of the one my mother grew up in near Erie, Pa and it holds a special place in my heart.

We regretted that we couldn't hop into the pool upon arrival, but the reservation that Steve made at Epicurean Bistro was calling--that was delicious as well as the breakfast served at Lakewinds. We loved the dining room and found the breakfast mates to be interesting and fun to talk with.

I would highly recommend this place on all counts, style, comfort, beauty, taste, and welcoming on all fronts. Thanks for fitting us in.

Room Tip: Ask for the Florentine- front views over the lake and a golf course

We have been staying at Lakewinds with our friends from London, Ontario for many years now. The rooms are very comfortable, each one attractively decorated in a different style from various parts of the world. Steve and Jane are perfect hosts - warm, inviting and helpful in so many ways. They have booked tee times for us at local golf courses, recommended area attractions, made reservations at local restaurants, reviewed the plays running at the Shaw Festival and provided directions. Every morning you will meet interesting people from all over the world at the breakfast table, sometimes more gray-haired theatre goers such as us and sometimes young couples just married. Jane serves a fabulous breakfast with fresh fruit, a hot entrée, homemade muffins and wonderful coffee. The table could be a spread in Bon Appetit. And when you receive your account as you are leaving, it has a handwritten note and two mouth-watering homemade chocolate chip cookies for the trip home. Be sure to stay at Lakewinds. You will love it as much as we do.

Room Tip: The Venetian is the largest room with a sitting area, king size bed and a tv.

My wife and I have been going to Niagara-on-the-Lake every year foe the past 10 years. Two years ago, we were introduced to Lakewinds and we feel we have found the perfect place. Jane and Steve make you feel so welcome and very much at home in this lovely and very comfortable house.Each room is very warm and cozy and very well appointed. The gardens are absolutely gorgeous and there is a nice pool should you feel so inclined. Jane and Steve are very helpful in selecting restaurants for Dinner as well as Wineries to visit and are happy to make the reservations for you. Breakfasts are absolutely scrumptious and are a wonderful way to start your day of touring or sightseeing. Lakewinds is a short distance from the centre of town and theatres.
Can't think of a better place to stay!!

My wife and I have been going to Niagara-on-the-Lake every year for the past twenty years. We've been staying at Lakewinds for the past five years and it just gets better every year. Jane and Steve are the perfect hosts and very helpful with recommendations for dining, wineries to visit or general touring. The house is beautiful. Breakfasts are absolutely wonderful. The best B&B in NOTL.
