Brian and Jan were just wonderful hosts. I felt like they were family! When we arrived, they were in the middle of a Thanksgiving dinner with friends but Brian gave us his undivided attention and helped us to decide where to make our dinner reservations, gave us a thorough tour and even made us each a wonderful espresso! It's like... More

Warm and welcoming! A real family feel and absolutely amazing dining! It was gourmet dining for breakfast - you did not need to eat the rest of the day! The hospitality was wonderful! Facilities were very comfortable.

My partner and I stayed at this wonderful place, and Brian was an amazing host! We stayed in the Colonel's Room, with a walkout (shared) balcony, beautiful bathroom, and the bed was extremely comfortable - slept all night! You have probably read the other reviews about the beautiful house, but consider booking more than one night if you want to... More

Brian is a host that really enjoys what he does. Accommodations were great! Food was out of this world. Overall a great experience. Pool was very relaxing, I felt like I was at a resort. My wife and I will be back for sure.

We had a wonderful stay at the Ranger's Retreat Bed & Breakfast. Brian's breakfasts were amazing, the pool was refreshing, and we enjoyed visiting with Brian and Jan. Staying here was one of the highlights of our 10 day trip.

Fleeing the maddening crowds after a day in Niagra Falls, we dig into the Internet and come upon a too-cool-to-believe bed and breakfast in a village, Niagra-on-the-Lake, Notle for short, on the southern shore of Lake Ontario, in Canada. Never having heard of the town, wary of the hyphenated Nirvanas, like our many Rhapsody--by-the-Seas, we roll warily past shopping strips,... More

************************ From: BJ. August 2015 ************************ What an incredible experience at Ranger's Retreat. Brian and Jan are amazing. They're the ultimate hosts, easy to talk to and filled with such great humor. They're not intrusive. I arrived with my sister-in-law and felt immediately welcomed and comfortable in their home. The house is huge ( 5000 sq ft ?? ) and... More

This was our first b&b experience and we had our hesitations of what this experience would be like. Generally we stay in hotels when we visit NOTL, but preferred staying at Ranger's Retreat. Brian and Jan are great hosts, both highly experienced hospitality professionals. I sense they are always looking for ways to improve because they truly care and enjoy... More

Our son had made the reservation for us to stay here for 2 reasons. The number one reason was because of the reviews he had read (so keep 'em coming) while the second was he knew we had never stayed at a B&B and thought this would be the perfect oportunity. I have to say the reviews are "true to... More

Brian and Jan have a lovely B&B in Niagara on the Lake. The gardens are lush and very well kept. You feel completely relaxed to be here. It's a shame we only booked 1 night as we didn't have time to use the saltwater pool! Brian's tour included a story behind each piece of art in the B&B, which shows... More
