  • 10.0.Exceptional

    We loved everything about this B & B. The location was great, close enough to the downtown area of NOTL to drive there in a few minutes, but on a very quiet cul de sac off the main road. We had bicycles and access to the town, vineyards and the Niagara Parkway Trail was easy. The property is lovely, a very large private outdoor area, with hot tub, fire pit, gazebo and lots of seating - the layout made social distancing easy. Our room was large and very well supplied. There really wasn't anything that was lacking. We had a private balcony where we ate breakfast each morning. The hosts had planned exceptionally well for COVID restrictions. There was a beautiful picnic basket for our delicious breakfast, and rules re masks, public areas etc were well explained. We will certainly return!

    Beautiful B&B in Niagara on the Lake

    My husband and I spend two nights in this beautiful B&B recently and enjoyed it very much. Our bedroom was confortable with a private balcony. We enjoyed the fact that we had access to a mini kitchen, a lounge, a second balcony and a nice yard, an oasis of tranquility and beauty. Many small attentions and the good breakfasts added to our experience. Because of Covid the breakfast was delivered in a basket to our choice of location (room, balcony, yard etc). There is a jacuzzi and a fire pit in the amazing yard. I recommend a stay at Explorer House and hope to go back soon.

  • 6.0.Good

    The host was abrasive and rude in front of other guests because we do not arrive for breakfast at 9:00am sharp. We were not told that we had to be there at 9:00am sharp. When we arrived after 9 she was rude to us in front of other guests telling us we could not have breakfast. This was embarrassing for me in front of my girlfriend and other guests. She did not even offer us a piece of toast. There were only 4 other guests there having breakfast. She could have been more polite to us.

    Explorer House is a lovely bed and breakfast located in a quiet area. The house is decorated to showcase different areas of the world and each suite has its own theme. The grounds are inviting and relaxing. Attention to detail is evident in every aspect.
