    Location Location Location

    A beautiful large home in a great location, 2 blocks from the theatre and main street through the town and right on the water (Niagara River), many walking and photo ops. It was a rather expensive for a solo guest at the end of the theatre season. ($175 or 25 - 30% off) would have been more appropriate. I visited to take advantage of 1/2 price theatre tickets, so the overnight stay made it an expensive excursion. The entrance doors were locked and difficult to open. The parking was very tight, with 2 cars next to the veranda making it difficult for customers to maneuvre in and out. The breakfast was delicious but too impersonal. I would prefer all tenants eating in the same room around a large table to encourage conversation.

    So nice but....

    Beautiful house and location. Close to the lake with a nice view of the park. Rooms are ‘new’ as part of the old house addition/renovation Breakfast was deluxe though there was a notable lack of any juice, muffins, or toast. Surprisingly for the cost, there was not any daily refreshments or ice. So many other establishments had a ongoing buffet of coffee, tea and soda available.

    This Bed & Breakfast inn is located across the street from the lake and is just a short walking distance to the main street. Great location for a visit to Niagara on the Lake. The breakfast was fabulous and the bed was comfortable - would definitely stay here again in the future.

    We fell in love with Mr. B, the resident dog. And the house is gorgeous.

    Great location

    Great location, beautiful view. We had the garden room downstairs so it was rather noisy with people coming downstairs and we could actually hear snoring from the room above.

    Property was conveniently in town but also with a wonderful lake view. Staff was very friendly and while the house was very old it was in excellent condition.

    The atmosphere was lovely - big old house with historic charm. The rooms were decorated nicely and the beds were comfortable. The staff couldn't have been any more accommodating - so nice! Loved the "resident" dog!!! Breakfast was interesting and excellent.
