We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our week cycling around the Greater Niagara Circle Route. Our younger daughter was learning more about the War of 1812 on this trip. Peter Secord was the uncle of Laura Secord's husband and the first United Empire Loyalist to move up from the states after the American revolution.
Harry Murdoch (he and his wife Colette are the owners) is hugely knowledgeable about history and just talking with him adds a great deal to the experience. Harry grew up in this house, and moved away and then bought the house back, and he and Cole spent several years renovating and restoring it - ask to look at the photograph album documenting the restoration.
We are excited that they are currently renovating the basement, to provide a family size bedroom that will accommodate more than two people.
What else to say? Do ask for complementary tasting vouchers - Ravine Winery is a must visit place for lunch or dinner.
