We stayed 3 nights in and were impressed with the house and grounds as well as the complimentary snacks, water etc. and common areas. It is on a quiet street and has its own privacy. Deanna and Alec were willing to help in any way possible and breakfast was served with more precision than a 5 star restaurant and with... More

Our first time at NOTL was definitely amazing and unforgettable because of our stay at Explorer House. We stayed in the Cloud Forest Suite - absolutely beautiful decor, comfortable, clean, and well stocked with everything you need. Every room has a large private bathroom, private balcony, and jacuzzi tub. The backyard has a beautiful garden with a great hot tub... More

Awesome B&B on a short walking distance of main street aniagra on the Lake. Beautifull rooms, great facilities ( next to your private balcony also use of the garden and the whirlpool there ), tastefully decorated spacious rooms, lovely hosts and the best breakfast I have had in Canada.

Room was very nice ...shower wasn't big enough for my tall but slim husband. Spent more on this expensive B & B than most places in the area for " the experience". Disappointed being served "frozen" packaged French toast...went out for local & fresh breakfast. Would never have written a negative review but when this is a hospitality business one... More

In response to your two primary concerns: Firstly, please get your facts straight: All of our food is fresh made daily, including our Chai Spiced French Toast.

This is one of the nicest places I've stayed, and the owners were lovely. The rooms were beautiful, it was quiet, the backyard was amazing (loved the hot tub!), and we hung out on the balcony. The breakfasts were delicious.

We had a lovely stay at Explorer House on our weekend getaway to Niagara-on-the-lake. The room was exactly as described - clean, cozy and comfortable. The property is beautiful and very conveniently located. Deanna provided excellent winery recommendations for us and passes which was a bonus. The breakfast was delicious as well - we will definitely be back!

We booked last minute at the Explorer House. This was a quick overnight trip following a trip to Niagara Falls. We wished we had longer to enjoy all the amenities the Explorer House had to offer. We especially liked the private patio. The Explorer House was tastefully decorated with fine furnishings and extremely comfortable. Terrific host and breakfast.
