Unexpected Pleasure

4.6 on September 12, 2013

Was not sure what we would find in the sometimes touristy town of Niagara-on-the-Lake so this was a big surprise and an absolute pleasure. Wonderful hosts, excellent rooms and a lovely garden and swimming pool to top it all off. Great dining recommendations nearby. Wish we had booked for more than one night. We will be back.

Totally delightful package!

This B & B is the total package--Excellent hosts, delightful rooms, delicious breakfast, wonderful view of the lake!

Great hosts and a great place to stay

This is absolutely the place to stay if you are coming to the Niagara region. Convenient to everything and the Lakewinds experience is as good as it gets. We would highly recommend everything about Lakewinds.

We found a gem in Niagara-on-the-Lake

A very relaxing and comfortable stay. Jane and Steve are gracious hosts. We enjoyed chatting with them and learning the history of the town. The B&B is very peaceful witha a beautiful view of the lake across from the golf course. In addition it is within easy walking distance of town. Our room was very comfortable and quiet. We had a great sleep in a very welcoming bed. Breakfast was extremely good. Jane served a great omelette with "all the tiimmings". Our special requests were addressed with ease. We would not hesitate to return. Our only "regret" was that we were unable to see what the vast garden would look like in full bloom. Brian and Eke

Beautiful stay at Lakewinds Manor!

Lakewinds Manor is a wonderful B&B, located right on the main strip of Niagara-on-the-lake, just a short walking distance from the shops and restaurants. This place is impeccably clean and Jane and Steve are very friendly hosts and very helpful in suggesting great places to eat or fun things to do around town. Aside from the beautifully decorated rooms, Lakewinds offers a cozy entertainment room, to watch TV or play some pool. They have a lovely pool and patio outside as well. The breakfasts are delicious, very tasty and healthy home cooking. This was our second time staying at Lakewinds Manor, and we look forward to coming back very soon! Thanks again for the fantastic service, Jasmine and Jeff

Relax and Enjoy Lakewinds

4.8 on August 29, 2009

Thanks for a most enjoyable weekend; we’ll have no hesitation recommending Lakewinds to family and friends. We have always enjoyed visiting Niagara-on-the-Lake for day trips, now we have an added insensitive to return and stay a while. The Manor, the garden, the company and especially our hosts made this very brief stay one to remember. Thanks again to Jane and Stephen, we will most certainly be returning to Lakewinds for a much longer stay. Barbara & Malcolm, Ontario

Lakewinds Top Notch !

4.0 on July 09, 2009

We booked this luxury B&B (a denomination which does not really do right to this wonderful property) after having read the enthusiastic reviews on Tripadvisor. When we arrived we were given a very warm welcome by Jane. Right from the start, we felt at home and were impressed by the beautiful house, garden and swimming pool. The interiors are tastefully decorated and both Jane and Steve are wonderful hosts. The gourmet breakfast easily wins from all the best breakfasts we ever have experienced. Niagara on the Lake is a great place to stay if you want to visit Niagara Falls or the local wineries. The charming town center has a wide choice of restaurants, many of them within reasonable walking distance. Definitely a superb experience in all respects !

Nothing but the best!

My husband and I stayed at Lakewinds for 1 night the last weekend in May. We wish we could have stayed longer to explore the beauty of Niagara on the Lake and enjoy Jane and Steve's wonderful hospitality. We stayed in the Heaven Room which faces the golf course and the lake beyond. It was a fantastic view from the front porch. Breakfast was superb! Jane and Steve are friendly and gracious hosts . We highly recommend Lakewinds and will definitely be back.

Christmas Begins at Lakewinds

4.0 on December 09, 2008

We just returned from our annual "mother daughter" weekend in Niagara on-the-Lake where we once again enjoyed our stay at your magical bed and breakfast. This is our fifth visit and we are never disappointed. Sitting in your living room in front of the wood burning fireplace while listening to Christmas carols, admiring your Christmas tree and chatting was so relaxing. The breakfasts where delicious and our room was perfect. You are both very gracious hosts. We hated to leave and look forward to our next visit. Patricia & Sarah, Pickering, Ontario.
