This B&B is well run with clean, well equipped rooms (with private bathrooms), yet dressed up authentically as you would expect a pottery-barn home to look. The owner was very friendly and considerate to our needs, and her breakfast's are amazing! She introduced us to the wide world of Maple syrup. The B&B is a stone's throw from an excellent bakery/restaurant where you can get an excellent lunch, a 'pub' like restaurant, and a couple of stores. The town of Niagara-on-the-Lake itself is about 11km away, so don't expect to just walk into town. However, this place is excellent to base yourself from when making a wine tour through the country, or of-course when going to visit the falls.
The rooms are equipped with TV and airconditioners, as well as central heating radiators. However, when we were there the weather was quite chilly, and we noted that in the winter the rooms must cold. The rooms have an attached private bathroom, quite spacious, with in our case a shower.
Wifi is available throughout the property, with an internet computer downstairs. Brochures of the local area are provided, as are wine-flight tasting vouchers to try at some of the various wineries around the area. We can highly recommend Hillebrand, where the staff are very knowledgeable and happy to advice on what wines you may enjoy.
Be warned, if you are very allegic to cats, the owner keeps two in her home. I myself am allergic, but as she keeps the place extremely clean, I had absolutely no problem staying here.
This place is great for a break away. It isn't something for a romantic honeymoon or something as grandeous as that, its more basic and honest and in that way has its own special charm.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We would like to welcome you to Niagara-on-the-Lake and to our bed and breakfast. We sit on the edge of Ravine Winery (walk out my back yard into the vineyards and follow them to the restaurant/deli and winery). Also in the area Chateau Des Charmes winery and/Coyote Run Winery. Both are just a km away - just a few of the many wineries the region has to offer. Niagara Falls is a 15 minute drive. Enjoy the Gardens, or do as we do have a coffee/wine on the porch and watch the cyclists go by. We are located on a popular cycling route.We would love to welcome you with your pet however we have 2 cats that think they run the place. Lets talk about it before you bring your pets. For those with allergies, my cats are not allowed in the guest rooms, one is an outside one, the other well she just likes that I run a bed and breakfast. Smoking is not allowed in the house but please feel free to smoke on the porch or in the gardens. Please just remember to use ashtrays. We are a short drive (10 minutes) to Niagara Falls (and all the attractions - Maid of the Mist, Buttery Fly Avery) and to Old Town with the great shopping and the Shaw Theatre.
