We enjoyed our overnight stay very much but would have loved to stay at least 2 days to utilize the jacuzzi and the beautiful hot tub and fire pit in backyard. Lovely home and lively owners. Next time we will stay longer.

The positive reviews are all true! From the moment we arrived we were impressed. The rooms and common areas are beautifully decorated, spacious and spotlessly clean. The B&B rooms are separate from the main house so it's like having a boutique hotel all to yourself. The backyard is large and luxurious, including a hot tub and a fire pit. Breakfast... More

Explorer House is an excellent B&B for people who love to travel - the house is beautifully decorated throughout and the themed suites are perfectly set with many details to transport us to Africa, Asia or Central America. Deanna is an excellent photographer and her pictures are on full display - thankfully! Very comfortable house, wonderful breakfast, beautiful garden and... More

What a wonderful surprise. Despite reading numerous superlative reviews, I was not prepared to be so delighted by this B&B. It is modern, spacious, bright, spotless, and in all ways a perfect choice. The second floor is like having your own apartment with sitting areas and balconies to share other guests. The hosts are knowledgeable about the area and offer... More

My wife and I stayed at the Explorer House for 2 nights and things could not have been better. Prior to the trip I received emails welcoming us and giving us a thumbnail sketch of the House, our room, and surrounding activities. Upon arrival, we were greeted, shown around the grounds and our room, and had the ground rules explained.... 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
