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.
