494 Simcoe Street Bed & Breakfast
Reviewed August 18, 2013

494 Simcoe B&B is a beautiful and very romantic place. The rooms are gorgeous, very clean and nicely decorated. The garden is beautiful with a nice swimming pool. The hosts are warm and wonderful people. The place is a walking distance to the town's center. We had a really great time and are sure to be back next year.

If you are planning a visit to Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario Canada to enjoy the theater productions of the Shaw Festival, 494 Simcoe Street Bed & Breakfast is a great place to stay. It is a lovely home with three well appointed, comfortable guest rooms, two of which have bathrooms en suite. The air conditioned home has a large beautifully furnished sitting room for guest use, an indoor dining room and an awning covered veranda overlooking an award winning garden for breakfast dining. The breakfasts are a wonderful combination of cold and hot dishes including, fresh fruit of the season, home baked breads and a delicious variety of omelets. The facility has an in-ground swimming pool which guests may enjoy during the long swimming season.
However, the best part of staying at 494 Simcoe Street Bed & Breakfast is the gracious hospitality of the host and hostess James and Virginia Mainprize. They take pains to see that their guests are comfortable. They will gladly help guests procure dinner reservations at local restaurants and information about the Shaw Festival schedule or vineyard tours. They also are generous in offering afternoon tea to help guests relax after a long road trip, a matinee performance or an afternoon of shopping.
James is a stage and film actor and former educator, while Virginia is a book editor, hobbyist gardener par excellence and concert impresario. While they never impose themselves in the lively conversations that frequently ensue among the guests at the breakfast table, because of their backgrounds, they often are able to add tellingly to the stimulating breakfast repartee while impeccably serving the meal. James and Virginia are particularly interested in the lives and opinions of their guests, many of whom return year after year. Among the many Bed & Breakfast establishments in Niagara-on-the-Lake, The Mainprize's 494 Simcoe Street is an excellent choice. My wife and I suggest they you go to www.canvisit.com/494simcoe for reservation information.

Room Tip: The two room with bathrooms en suite have twin beds while the third room has a kingsize bed.
