My husband and I stayed at Aquabella B&B for 2 nights in March 2013 after winning a Niagara-on-the-Lake B&B weekend prize. The last time we stayed at a bed and breakfast was when we were in Europe on our honeymoon, so we were a little bit nervous about staying at one that was only an hour and a half away from home. What would it be like? Would it feel odd to stay in a B&B so close to home? Well, the minute we walked into Faith and David's B&B, we instantly felt welcomed and like we belonged there.
One side of their home is devoted entirely to the B&B and has a separate kitchen, living room and fireplace. The kitchen had a self-serve tea/coffee station which was available 24/7. Since we were the only guests at the time, it was almost like we had our own little house to ourselves. We stayed in the River Room, which had a terrific bed, television, Wi-Fi and a nicely decorated washroom. Added touch: There were fluffy bathrobes for both of us!
We woke up to the wonderful smells of coffee and breakfast each morning and enjoyed spending time with the Bell family while munching on a great homemade, family-style breakfast. They had thoughtfully asked if we had any dietary restrictions before we arrived and they were happy to accommodate my vegetarian diet.
The B&B is in a great location, just a short drive from a number of wineries and Queen St., which has a ton of shops, galleries and restaurants. Above all, the B&B is owned by a warm, friendly couple who will go out of their way to make their guests feel special. I look forward to staying at Aquabella B&B again very soon!
