Rooms were a bit small for 3 girls with full sized luggage. Other than that...AWESOME!! We were spoiled with 2 amazing breakfasts and the warmest hospitality. Coffee was ready for us first thing, and Verena was a warm and gracious hostess. We were made to feel at home would come back in a heartbeat!


Like Family!

During May we stayed at Homestead House for several days. Bernie and Verena made it as warm and welcoming as if you were visiting your closest family. We stayed across several rooms during our stay and all rooms were very comfortable and gave nice views of a quiet setting. Breakfasts were a feast, especially the pancakes. For our next visit to Ontario we know exactly where we will be staying.

About the innkeepers

My wife and I felt like doing something different - avoiding the everyday commute to work - so, we decided to take over a Bed & Breakfast place in 2007 in Hamilton Ontario, up on the escarpment - halfway between Toronto and Niagara Falls. We love people and entertaining - my wife is a superb cook - (check reviews) and I'm a hobby cook myself - It's very interesting and gratifying to meet people from all over the word!

Signature Dish

Bacon + Eggs with "Röschti"
Bacon + Eggs with "Röschti" is a typical Swiss Farmers breakfast - the "Röschti" is Swiss hash browns - potatoes are boiled the day before and left in the fridge overnight - in the morning you peel them, grate them and put them in a non-stick frying pan with a bit of oil, salt + pepper to your taste - arrange the grated potatoes like a pie in the pan - cook on one side until golden brown, then turn over with the help of a large lid and cook on the other side until golden brown - Cut in slices and serve - absolutely delicious!
