My wife and I spent a couple of days in Niagara on the Lake at the end of June. A birthday surprise for her. We decided to stay at the 1818 Rising Sun B&B and were very glad we did. First off let me say that our hosts, Frans and Lois, are very congenial, offering many tips to the highlights of the area. But if it is privacy you desire then you will not be bothered by overly attentive hosts. They will respect your choice. Speaking of privacy, the room is extremely quiet as it is situated on the back side of the house away from traffic. Now for the best part. My wife and I have travelled extensively and always stay in b&b's. We have never stayed in a b&b that has as many amenities and appointments for their guests as the Rising Sun. You will find a refrigerator and T.V. in the armoire at the end of the bed. There are magazines if you wish to read, a table for writing, an ensuite bathroom where you will find little extras like a tooth brush, toothpaste, hair products, feminine products and more. There is a second bathroom off the gallery which the fellas might find useful while the ensuite is in use.
The room is tastefully decorated and the walls throughout are covered in beautiful paintings, as Lois is an accomplished water colour artist. The dining area is located in Lois' gallery and it is a private space as well. There is also a private entrance for guests so you can come and go as you wish. The gardens and outside sitting area are for guests to use and the ambience is soothing to say the least. I could go on but I think you get the picture...the 1818 Rising Sun B&B is a 5-star accommodation in our book and you will not be disappointed if you choose to stay with Frans and Lois.
