I spent four nights at the Eastwood Lodge, and it was the best decision we could have made. The house is so cozy and welcoming, and the owner Joanne is friendly and helpful. We booked the rooftop suite in the main house, and it was an incredible value - like having your own home away from home. Spacious and well appointed with bedroom, large living room, fridge / dry bar area, full bath and outdoor deck with table and chairs. In addition to the large couch, there were two reclining chairs set up in front of the window with the lovely teal green waters of the Niagara River right across the street. The house has free wireless internet, and the suite that we stayed in had hundreds of cable channels and a large (36" ?) flat screen LCD TV. Each room has it's own coffee / tea machine to make individual servings whenever you want. With the in-room fridge, we were able to purchase a bottle of wine and drink it in the evening with the glasses provided in the room. One note about the suite; it is two stair flights up, so if you have any problem with climbing stairs, you may want to book a ground floor unit. The other guest rooms at the Eastwood are located in a building right adjacent to the main house.
The Eastwood Lodge is conveniently located about 1 minute from Rainbow Bridge, and has parking for all guests. It is located within walking distance between two stops of the "People Mover" shuttle system that will take you to all of the stops of the Niagara Ontario parks commision sites of interest. If you enjoy walking, you can easily walk to the Falls or to the Clifton Hill tourist district or over Rainbow bridge to the NY side. We purchased the Canada Adventure pass as first time visitors to the Falls, and found it a good value if you visit all of the attractions.
The breakfast room at the Eastwood is bright and cheerful and the food is so plentiful - from wonderful breads, croissants, cheeses, cereals, yogurts, cakes, pastries, fresh fruit of all types, juices, delicious coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. Joanne is present and attentive to her guests at breakfast.
Joanne has a gorgeous baby grand piano, and we enjoyed hearing a fellow guest and music teacher play it during our visit.
Joanne was a big help receiving calls and e-mails for us from the Winery Tour establishment that we booked with. Staying at a B&B is so much better to me than a hotel because you usually meet such interesting people at breakfast, and the environment naturally encourages friendly interaction. A bonus treat for me was their adorable new kitten named Billy Burrew, who I couldn't stop playing with. Don't worry, if you do not care for cats, Joanne will make sure he is out of your sight if that is your wish.
I would most definitely come back to stay here again!
