Wonderful Stay at Lily's
Stayed here for the first time to attend a nearby regatta. Location was beautiful and convenient. Building and room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was amazing, and I'm a food snob.

Steve & Lily were terrific hosts. The facility was specifically designed to host guests and is tremendously well-thought out. Our suite had a private balcony over-looking 12-mile creek where we could sit and hear the rushing waters on two Adirondack chairs. Big bathroom with rainfall shower heads & two sinks. Keurig for your coffee/tea fix before breakfast (9am) which was really terrific! Trail along the creek just across the street. We took a nice, relaxing walk before breakfast. No doubt that we'd stay again.

Lily and Steve are amazing hosts and they truly have a one-of-a-kind place. Everything was perfect - stunning view, spotless and comfy rooms, delicious food, and kind hospitality! Lily’s place is close to everything in the area and is within a short driving distance to Niagara Falls and Niagara on the Lake. Highly recommended!
