I write this review with the full expectation that the proprietor will respond entirely refuting my experience. Other even-handed reviews have elicited from her a tirade of a response. We were scheduled to stay one evening at Vinifera. We were attending a family party in Grimsby and simply needed a place to spend the night and Vinifera is within walking... More

If you love historic homes, a B&B atmosphere, antiques, beautiful gardens and sitting areas, and cozy rooms, then you have to stay here! Barb, who owns and runs the Inn, also gives complementary wine tastings in the tastefully decorated basement tasting room. I had no idea that the type of wine glass made a difference to the taste of my... More

Lovely guest house, we were made very welcome and the wine tasting went down well. Beautifully decorated house with lovely gardens and pool area. Few hiccups; no blind in bedroom and ham in my veggie breakfast. Not sure about eating with other guests at the same table and felt a little watched over by the host. But that could be... More

Hi and thank you for the compliments. I'm sorry about the broken blind. A guest had just broken it the week before and a new one is on order. I thought I'd mentioned that? We had to switch that blind to your other window to provide you privacy. Sitting at a common table is very typical in B & B's... More

Amazing victorian B&B! The hosts (owners) were accommodating, friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was delicious and well presented. The grounds were beautifully landscaped and the pool was refreshing. The room was very comfortable and tastefully decorated in victorian style. Would definitely stay here again!

This B&B was a surprise find in Grimsby. The Venetian suite was beautifully decorated. Barb gave the feeling that she was my favourite new best friend. Barb taught me how to appreciate a wine that I never enjoyed before. Barb's teaching of Right Glass- Wrong Glass has made a profound change of my taste buds for an Oaked Chardonnay. Barb... More

This property has much going for it, a great wine country location, and wonderful garden, a relaxing pool and a focus on wine culture. But this is an interaction intense experience - in our case the host and guests were very present. Some B&B's offer a quiet experience with limited interaction with owners and guests, others (like this one) are... More

Firstly; reviews are meant to be helpful, not malicious and to use the trailer park reference will surely make you look bad. Potential guests reading this; please read all of my other reviews.

Our two-day stay while making business calls on local wineries was enhanced by Barb's interest, attentiveness, and hospitality. The wine tasting she led, which focussed on appropriate glasses for different wines was informative and fun and this event is recommended.

We were returning to my home-town for a family reunion. With our local family's home full of guests we opted for this nearby B&B. I had high expectations since I knew the house from my childhood - sixty-five years ago all that separated my childhood home and this classic old home was a peach orchard! The owners Barb and Ron...

This is a classic old fashioned bed and breakfast in a period mansion with huge rooms and a victorian antique esthetic. The gardens are peacefully setback from the busy main road and nicely appointed with several sitting areas and an outdoor pool. The breakfast was nothing short of spectacular on both days.

Barb was a great host to us! we accidentally booked the wrong weekend online and showed up unexpectedly. She was full but found us accommodations a few houses down at her "overflow" location. Both houses were beautiful and lovely to stay in. She is very knowledgable about the wine region and gave us great recommendations for wineries, restaurants, and shops... More
