Excellent place to stay. The hosts do everything they can to make a great experience for you and are helpful in informing you about points of interest in the area. The rooms were beautiful and very clean with every detail thought out. The breakfasts each morning were unique and quite tasty. My husband and I plan to come again as... More

From the moment we pulled into the drive we knew we had picked the right B and B for our Niagara on the Lake stay. We come every year and this is the nicest place with the most welcoming hosts we have stayed with. Food in the morning was a 3 course delight, different every seating. The rooms were spacious,...

This is the second time that we have been to Explorer House and it was just as incredible as the first time. Deanna and Alec were excellent hostesses and were extremely helpful and knowledgeable about restaurants in the area. We can tell enough people about this hidden gem. The added hot tub and beautiful backyard were new and we thoroughly... More

This was our first experience at a bed and breakfast and it could not have been more enjoyable. The hosts were fantastic and having your own private bathroom with a Jacuzzi made the experience all the more memorable. We were provided with an awesome itinerary of wineries to visit and were also provided with a number of complimentary tasting or... More

The Explorer House is by far the best B&B we have ever stayed out. Everything was top notch from the accommodations, decor (AMAZING photography by Deana) grounds, service, location, breakfast! Deana and Alec were very helpful by recommending restaurants, tours and wineries (found our favourite winery through them as it wasn't on any of the tour maps!). They were also... More

Wonderful welcome into a wonderful home. Great facilities. The 3 course breakfast was a delight. Easy access into the town and in the evening we eat at a lovely relaxed restaurant just 100 yes down the street. Highly recommended.

The hosts were friendly and were ready to give suggestions regarding activities and driving directions. The elegantly furnished room was clean and quiet, and the jacuzzi was a nice plus. There was a wide variety of little snacks, soft drinks, and coffee just outside the room. The breakfasts were delicious!

I cannot say enough good things about the Explorer House! The house was beautiful, warm & inviting. The bedroom and bathroom were huge and the bed was very comfortable.

My college girlfriends and I plan an annual summer getaway. This year, we stayed at the wonderful Explorer House B&B. When Deanna welcomed us we couldn't believe the number of special extras offered during our stay: the lovely outdoor seating areas surrounded by lush gardens, the hot tub (which we'll definitely use next visit!), the restful reading room, a fully...
