My wife and I stayed at the Lyons house last month for a weekend of wineries and the Shaw. The location is perfect: About 11 minute walk to the festival theatre; across the street from the park; four blocks to the main street. You can park your car and forget it if you are visiting town. The wineries are all within a short drive. Very well maintained rooms and grounds. Lots of places to sit and relax. The hosts were excellent and very friendly. Breakfast was wonderful. Couldn't ask for anything more.

Convenient B&B with three big guest rooms. YUUGE breakfasts. (perhaps too heavy on the carbs, but amazing French toast.) Very nice married-couple hosts. Great location. Only oddity was no lock on our room (when out of it, does lock when inside.)

First impressions are lasting impressions. The Historic Lyons House captured us with its beautiful trees, well kept gardens and a picturesque structure which takes you back in time. Historic Lyons House is located within a short walk to the downtown area of NOTL and Shaw Festival venues. We were warmly greeted and welcomed by hosts Howard and Yolanta who made us feel like we had been here before. The house is tastefully decorated and well maintained. Our spacious room, with an ensuite bathroom, was well furnished and quite functional. Breakfast each morning was an experience in itself. From the aroma radiating from the kitchen, the fresh fruit, juice and preserves or the elegance of the dining room, we were pampered by our hosts. Howard and Yolanta shared time with us and added tips and ideas to our itinerary. They are not only your hosts, they are VERY active in the NOTL community as well. We immensely enjoyed our stay at Historic Lyons House and look forward to visiting again. Congratulations Howard and Yolanta, on 15 years as hosts to the guests who passed through your door. May there be many more.

This is our fourth time staying with Howie & Jolanta, and our experience never disappoints! The house and gardens are stunning, rooms and bathrooms always extremely clean. The location is just a few minute walk into Old Town NOTL. Nothing can top the breakfasts, (always starting with a delicious fruit and ending with a main course that’s comparable to fine dining,) down to the little details of beautiful china and table linens. Our favorite part about staying at the Lyons House are the hosts, Howie & Jolanta. Not only are they the perfect host/hostess, but they are SO HELPFUL with helping you plan your stay. They always have plenty of tasting cards for the wineries, they map your routes for you and give you all the tips and suggestions that a local could give. Whether you just want to drink, eat (or both!) go to the theater, or bike ride along the beautiful Niagara River Parkway, they guide you along the way. They enjoy getting to know their guests, and add personal touches. My husband and I were just there celebrating our 5th anniversary, and we came back after a day of biking and wineries to find a bottle of chilled champagne in our room with two flutes, along with a hand written note sending their anniversary wishes. Lyons House is top notch, and I highly recommend! We can’t wait to go back.
