“It is an absolutely amazing place!”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

The room was quite and beautiful. The house was clean and nice. Both my mom and I loved it very much. The breakfast was delicious and you can have a lot of different choices. It is definitely a smart choice to go to Cecile's House. I will go back again

Everything Is perfect..including the breakfast prepared by Chris...a real French Chef.
We have been guests at Cecile's House at least 5-6 times...and each time it gets better.
Our visit was restful and the perfect get away in Niagara on the Lake. It is close to everything with convenient parking and access to the tourist areas of the downtown.

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautiful. We stayed in the Country Room and it was recently redecorated and just...

This was our second family girls get together at Cecil's House. Three of us went last year and we spoke so highly about our experience that two more cousins went with us this year. Another AMAZING experience and now it looks like we have to book the entire house for next year !!!! Now the problem is that so many people want to visit and we can only pick two more additional family members. Chris is so very very wonderful with his attention to every little detail. The breakfast is ALL cooked and baked from scratch. The decor in the rooms is a decorators delight and we always bring some appetizers and drinks for the evening and sit outside in the back by the water feature and pond surrounded by lush and fragrant blooms . This quite and beautiful atmosphere is so condusive to our long chats . We all live so far apart and need this special time to reconnect. Thank you for providing the perfect place for our family bonding time Chris.

This B&B is so beautiful and Chris is a wonderful host.....and an amazing chef! The gardens are lovely and the location is perfect... Far enough away from the busy 'touristy' street that its peaceful but close enough to walk to. If we ever get the chance to come back to this gorgeous area we will definitely be staying here. I wish I could eat breakfast here every morning!! Patty Okotoks, Alberta

Cecile's House is by far our favorite Bed and Breakfast! It is sophisticated yet relaxed, and Chris is a most genial host! We would highly recommend Cecile's House to all travelers to Niagara on the Lake.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cecile's House, Chris was a very welcoming and gracious host, and our breakfast was wonderful. Our room was beautiful, comfortable and very fresh inside, it was like sleeping in fresh outdoor air! We could only get one night and are looking forward to booking two for next years trip. Way to go Chris! See you next year!

Before leaving Cecile's House Thursday, August 15, I booked the Master Suite for the same 2 nights for 2014 as staying with Chris makes our Shaw Festival experience SPECIAL. It took several years to finally get a reservation - warning: there are only 3 rooms to reserve and most people rebook year-after-year, but I was patient and knew that eventually there would be an opening.

Why is Cecile's House my favorite? The location is perfect - close to the theatres, shopping and restaurants, and the Niagara Golf Club. There's little reason to move your car once you've checked in with Chris, a most friendly, accommodating host. It's a quiet, lovely B & B. The front porch has comfy chairs and umbrellas for shade, but I prefer before dinner having a glass of wine, cheese and fruit at the back seating area. It's an oasis of lovely plants, flowers and a gurgling fountain. Around 7:30 a.m. you wake up to the delicious aroma of croissants and fruit custards baking in the oven; Chris asks when you'd like breakfast - we generally ask for 9 a.m. so we have plenty of time for a leisurely morning before the noon or 2 p.m. performances.

He's also constantly updating and redecorating the B & B. The dressing room/walk in closet in the Master Suite was quite nice before, but the new dressing table, mirrors and lighting are even more functional and lovely.

I don't want to stay anywhere else for our annual Shaw outing - "Enchanted April" at the Festival Theatre was our favorite of the 6 performances we saw August 13-15.

Room Tip: Book early as there are only 3 rooms at Cecile's House. Enjoy some wine, cheese, etc. on the ba...
