This is the second time we stayed with Helena at her Lion's Head B&B. It is all about a great hostess, gourmet breakfast, and artfully decorated rooms. The house is very comfortable and Helena is very helpful recommending restaurants' she know and loves. Thank You, Helena!
The Best!

We had a wonderful time at the Lion's Head. Helena made us feel comfortable and at home. Her breakfasts were incredible. She was so helpful in recommending and making dinner reservations for us each night, and for sight seeing and attractions. Excellent location. Pleasant walk to the Falls. We had great weather during the day. Evenings were a little chilly for this Florida girl (55-60 degrees F) The area wasn't too crowded at this time. (early Sept) One of my favorite times was sitting on the front porch early in the morning just relaxing/reading. We had an incredible stay.

Room Tip: The Gauguin room had plenty of space and the attached bathroom was spacious.

This is a very nice place to stay for visiting Niagara Falls. Helena was helpful and friendly. The breakfasts were delicious.

We have to leave early, and even she had a full house, she still prepared the full breakfast for us. Very nice of her.

I would highly recommend this place.

Highly recommend & we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Helena was very helpful with recommendations for local attractions and dining. Great location. Quiet & peaceful. Breakfasts were varied and delicious each day. Our stay was four nights. Beautiful weather this time of year and not so crowded.

My husband and I and 3 other couples stayed at Lions Head 3 weeks ago and had an awesome time! I searched for the perfect B & B that would be fitting for our group and was hoping we found it at Lions Head. Lions head and Helena’s exceeded all of our expectations! 3 couples (us included) were B & B virgins and were a bit nervous. From the minute we arrive Helena could not have been a better host. All of our rooms were perfect. The breakfast that Helena prepares is outstanding. The living room area down stairs and the front porch were perfect to gather at. Our favorite setting for before dinner drinks and late night returns was the front porch.
I was lucky enough to see all of the rooms at Lions Head and there is not a bad room in the house, they are all lovely. However, I am a bit partial to the Gaugin.
The Lions Head is definitely within walking distance to the falls. We actually walked down to the falls for Friday night fireworks, which were awesome.
All eight of us would not hesitate to come back and stay at this beautiful Bed & Breakfast. I am already thinking of a new group to bring back next year! I am pretty picky about where I stay and this is perfect for a group or a couple. Either way you will not be disappointed!
Helena, thanks for all your recommendations on restaurants you were spot on with everything.
If you are looking for something fantastic on the NY side of the falls – don’t miss Cave of the Winds – it topped the charts!

Room Tip: There is not a bad room Helena has to offer. If you are nervous about the Monet because the bathroom...

My wife and I visited Niagara Falls for the first time & stayed for 3 nights at the Lion's Head B&B. This place is a gem! Host Helena is a wonderful chef and provided three interesting & delicious gourmet breakfasts. Her advice on touring the local area was spot on. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and highly recommend the Lion's Head.
