My wife and I recently stayed here on a vacation to Niagra Falls. We stayed a total of two nights (a monday and tuesday.) I stay in hotels 3-4 nights a week for my regular job, so when on vacation I prefer to avoid corporate hotels. My wife and I have been to a handful of B&Bs now with a variety of styles and we like to think we know what makes a good B&B. Mark, the owner was very personal. He made good conversation and always had a story to tell. The breakfast each day consisted of yogurt, fresh fruit, Multi-grain bread for toast, orange juice, apple juice, coffee, milk, and a breakfast entree that changed from day to day. The second day we were there he made a french toast that was incredible! If you stay here you need to request the french toast. An earlier reviewer that said the french toast was average must have had no taste buds, as it was some of the finest french toast I have ever had. The food was really good, you couldn't find better food at a restaurant. They have a coffee bar equipped with a Keurig coffee maker so you can make yourself a cup of coffee or tea at any time.
As for the house itself, it's a 100 year old house, so the normal quirks of a hundred year old house exist. and on that note, some of the rooms have shared baths, so if you cant handle that or some of the quirks that that come with a hundred year old house, maybe you should stick to a corporate hotel. It was warm the two days we were there, but not brutally hot, so the air conditioner worked well.
There is a nice front porch to sit and drink coffee on in the evening, the neighborhood is quiet, and it makes a good place to unwind from a long day of seeing the area attractions, most of which are a 15 minute walk from the front porch.
In summary, we were 100% satisfied with this B&B. We got restful sleep, had good conversation with the owner and other guests, and were stuffed with good food every morning. Everything we've come to expect from a top quality B&B. I highly recommend this B&B if you are planning a trip to Niagara Falls.
