Chestnut Inn
Ranked #18 of 69 Niagara Falls B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 11, 2013

My husband and I stayed here in the Rose room this past August and we were very happy with our choice as there are many B&B's to choose from. The house and grounds are beautiful and they are just a short ride to the Falls and also a very nice ride from Niagara on the Lake through beautiful wine countryside. Breakfast was delicious! The only thing that kept me from giving a 5 was that the bed was very firm, close to hard, which I found uncomfortable. It didn't bother my husband!

I recently stayed at Chestnut Inn with my husband for a one night stay. We stayed in the Rose Room, which was adequate for the two of us. We had access to a outside patio area where we could privately sit. The hostess's Carol and Nancy were lovely people and very helpful. Breakfast was great, with so much to choose from.

The accommodation was well situated for our visit to Niagara Falls and we also visited Niagara on the lake which was lovely!

Great value accommodation!

We started our trip here for the night, it was perfect away from the crowded streets, it was Sunday June 30, and the streets downtown were crazy busy. The house is very nice. We had the loft room which was a perfect size for the 3 of us. There was delicious Apple french toast, pancakes if you wanted, as well as watermelon, cantaloupe, yogurt, cereal etc...The house is very clean and comfy and the service was excellent. We slept really well and did not hear the other guests.

I can't say enough good things about The Chestnut Inn! This was a spur-of-the-moment trip and we found The Chestnut Inn online. After reading so many glowing reviews I was very eager to see the place in person, and it did NOT disappoint. We stayed for three nights and felt right at home from the moment we walked in the door. We were sad when it came time to leave and are already trying to figure out when we can go back again.

The Inn is charming, tastefully decorated and well appointed. The rooms are warm and inviting. The owners live in a separate house that is attached to the Inn by a private breezeway so you don't feel like you're disturbing their family's routine. The kitchen is available for guest use, which was really nice. There is also a small refrigerator and an electric kettle in a room on the second floor that you can use. There was an assortment of teas, hot chocolate and instant coffee in that room as well. I remember reading one review that said there were no hair dryers, however in the room with the small refrigerator there was a basket with a hair dryer, curling iron and clothes iron that the guests could use (as well as an ironing board in the corner).

We stayed in The Loft Room which is on the third floor and is the entire width of the house. The room is HUGE! The door to our room was on the second floor with private stairs leading up to the room. This being an old house, those stairs were creaky and we were afraid we were disturbing the other guests when we walked up and down the stairs, but after talking with a couple who was staying in a room on the second floor they assured us that it was not the "herd of elephants" level of noise that we thought it might be! They said that while they could hear that someone else was in the house, it was not disturbing at all. We had our own bathroom, fireplace and deck, and the deck was very large. We were there off-season so there were no chairs on the deck but I'm sure they put them out during the season. We happened to have been there on an especially mild weekend so it was still nice to stand out on the deck in the morning to see the sunrise. :)

One note about the Loft room: the bathroom appears to have been redone since the pictures that are on their web page because it did not have a claw-foot tub. There was a tub/shower enclosure, and once you're standing inside the tub the ceiling is a bit low. If you are over 5'11 inches tall you might have to duck your head, or take baths instead of showers. We are both under 5'10" so it wasn't an issue for us but I felt like I should mention it. There was plenty of hot water and the bathroom, as well as the rest of our room and the entire house, was very clean.

Breakfast each morning included their signature dish, Apple Stuffed French Toast. There's a reason that practically every review mentions this dish...it's AMAZING!! So good!! They also had a nice selection of muffins, bagels, croissants, fresh fruit, cereals, yogurt, toast...and the hostess/house manager (Carol) will make you pancakes if you'd like. Carol was a real gem! She is so friendly and warm, and we thoroughly enjoyed our conversations with her each morning. She strikes that perfect balance of being open and engaging while still respecting privacy.

The location of the inn was perfect as well; close enough to the falls (less than a five minute drive) while still feeling well removed and far enough away that you're not bombarded with all of the tourist-y crap. It's about a twenty minute drive from there to Niagara-on-the-Lake which is a lovely little town on Lake Ontario. I can't report on the bus service because we chose to drive everywhere.

On our last night there we were the only guests, so we peeked into the other rooms and they are all beautiful. We would have been happy to stay in any one of them. The Blue Room is the only room with a king-sized bed. Each room has it's own bathroom and a fireplace, and some sort of balcony or deck.

What else....there is free wi-fi, free parking on-site, books and games available, and the price was very reasonable. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me and ask and I'll be happy to answer if I can.

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautiful! The Blue Room is the only room with a king-size bed, the others are qu...

My partner and I chose the chestnut inn to get married in, wanting an intimate ceremony for just the two of us. We couldn't have chosen better! The inn itself was beautiful, the rooms had real charm and were extremely comfortable and cosy. We booked the blue room which also had a balcony with a great view of the surrounding area. Where the inn really excels is service though, Carole the house manager is quite possibly one of the most wonderful people we've ever met, so warm and welcoming she gives the place it's heart and soul. I had not been able to bring any flowers for my wedding and my partner wanted me to have a bouquet and when he asked Carole if we could get some, not only did she call the florists but actually drove us there to pick them up! We also were given a champagne to celebrate our wedding which was a lovely thoughtful gesture, perfect to sip as we sat on the balcony watching the squirrels :) the breakfast there were also fantastic, the house speciality French toast was heavenly and there was certainly plenty of food on offer :) it felt as though nothing was too much trouble. We will definately be visiting again, and we would love to celebrate an anniversary there in the future. Thank you for making our time there as wonderful as it was x x x

Stayed at the Chestnut Inn for our wedding in September 2012 and cannot fault this place. The staff were so welcoming and just could not do enough for us. The breakfast is described as continental but the table was groaning with delicious food each morning. We were married in the Gazebo and could not have wished for a better location. We hope we can return one day to this magical bed and breakfast.

Room Tip: The loft room is very spacious and has its own big decked area.

We stayed one night at the Chestnut Inn with friends and we received a warm & friendly welcome from Karen our hostess. The rooms we had were very spacious and comfortable. All the rooms had a balcony except ours which was "The Loft" and had an enormous roof patio. Breakfast was served in a beautifully furnished dining room by Katina who was charming and very helpful. We would definitely recommend this to our friends.

Room Tip: We had "the Loft" and the "Grey Room" and would recommend either.
