Wonderful August Stay

5 on November 01, 2017

My wife and I stayed at Orchard View Bed and Breakfast in the Map Room from August 21st through August 24th. I have to say that Antoinette and her husband made this one of our favorite Bed and Breakfast stays. To start, the room was great. It was on the second floor of the house on the right at the top of the stairs. It was air conditioned with great decor. The bed was very comfortable and roomy. The WiFi worked well and a TV with cable is available although we didn't watch much. The over-sized jetted tub was awesome and really helped make our stay feel luxurious. Secondly, the property itself is great too. There is onsite/off-street parking which is nice. The garden in the back is fun to walk through when their fruit and vegetables are in season (We were asked to taste some!). The eating area is beautiful and had a wonderful view into the garden. There is always coffee or tea available for guests. Third, the location was perfect to access all of the Niagara region attractions. We could've walked or biked (we didn't bring them) to the falls area very easily...probably a 10-15 minute walk. We Ubered so that we didn't have to worry about driving. It was also easy to get to Niagara on the lake from there as the street quickly leads to highways. It's perfect if you'd like to stay away from the touristy falls-view area yet still be close to all of the action. Lastly, the owners are truly wonderful. They were very accommodating and made some awesome breakfast. We had oatcakes with fresh fruit and yogurt, fresh mango blended juices, locally sourced sausage and eggs, UNREAL local bacon, and many other delicious choices. They are very considerate when selecting what they purchase and make for their guests. They were always very helpful and provided some great local restaurant suggestions. It was also nice to chat with them at breakfast and talk about regional history! We would absolutely stay here again without question.


Romantic vacation

5 on October 08, 2014

Dear Anne-Marie, we stayed at your place about the 5. or 6. of september 2014 - you know, we travelled around so we´re not shure about the exact date. We promised to write you and we do this now. First, it was very nice in `victorian charm`, the room was lovely, just right for an old romantic couple, second the falls were near and third, the best was you and your breakfast. We admired you and do it still, what yo u´re doing in and with your life and wish all the best in future. We are happy, that we could meet you. / After a flight of nearly eight hours, we landed in Stuttgart and came good to our home in Schorndorf (you know, Gottlieb Daimlers birth place - `Mercedes Benz`). Thank so much you for all and keep staying like you are, it´s fine, Uschi u. Werner from Germany

Innkeeper Response
Thank you Heinritz and Ushy for the great company and your nice review. I enjoyed your visit, talking at breakfast time etc..Keep up with your good health and travels! Sincerely, Anne Marie

Couldn't have had a better stay!

5 on June 03, 2014

A friend and I stayed here for the Niagara Falls Women's Half Marathon last weekend and it couldn't have been more perfect! Anne Marie was right there to welcome us and show us to our room. We stayed in the Loft room which was HUGE! Totally comfortable beds, a beautiful view of the garden and so much character! She had great suggestions for dinner, which we took. The day before the race we were tourists. So, after an amazing breakfast of fruit & homemade crepes (!!!- awesome), we took the short 10 minute walk to the Falls. I cannot say enough about how welcome Anne Marie made us feel. She even offered to make us breakfast at 6am before our race! We conversed (briefly because my hs French was a long time ago) in French, and just enjoyed chatting with her during breakfast of any other time we ran in to her. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for something a little different but so charming. Je vais revenir bientôt!!


Just, amazing!

Incomparable. Anne-Marie is a joy to meet. Her easy manner and welcoming cheer make you feel as though she might be your own grandma. Her passion for her home and hospitality is apparent. She has created a modern and supremely comfortable establishment while maintaining the rustic beauty of an 1889 Victorian. Accommodations are immaculate. I stayed in the Canadiana room, which featured enough outlets to satisfy an Apple employee. Free wifi to boot! And no need has been left unattended; towel racks, extra shampoo, and hangers are in abundance. Her gardens are spectacular and enhance her impressive cooking. There are even bunnies to pet! The walk to the falls is short, maybe 10-15 minutes. But the distance is noticeable if you are seeking a more calming Niagara adventure (as in, you do not require a Casino as your ground floor). Anne-Marie is knowledgeable about the area, and can assist you in anything you might need while here. In short, this is a must stay.


Warm hospitality!

Our stay at the Victorian Charm B&B was absolutely wonderful. Anne Marie is a most gracious host and while we were there she made us feel like part of her family. The home and the grounds are just lovely. Our room was spacious and the bed very comfy. Breakfast was delicious!!! If anyone leaves the Inn hungry it is of their own doing. Some of the food is out of Anne Marie's organic garden and did I mention it was delicious. Most things where within walking distance and if not Anne Marie was very helpful in giving directions and telling us about other attractions in the area. We highly recommend staying at the Victorian Charm B&B. Thank you Anne Marie for everything, we will be back. Diane & Randy VB Cincinnati Ohio


Charming doesn't even begin to cover it.....

5 on July 22, 2011

Everything was amazing. The innkeepers have amazing gardens and were not shy about giving tours and explaining their organic methods. The garden room was great with a balcony and the two person air tub was better than I could have expected. Breakfast was impressive, and all homemade; I would recommend the grilled mixed veggie crepes with a cheese sauce any day. Only 4 or so blocks from the falls saved a boatload on parking-up to $20/day at the falls. Would definitely go back. Thanks!


Wonderful and Cosy

5 on June 04, 2011

We came from Orlando, Florida and stayed at Victoria Charm at 6028 Culp St. It was wonderful and cosy. The food well prepared and healthy. The vegetable and fruits were harvest in its own yard. Ms. Anne-Marie and Mr. Pierre were very nice and welcoming. The room very clean and comfortable. She helped us with adventure pass, other passes and she even took the time to take us to Toronto. It was awesome. It was a great decision to stay there and I do recommend it to anyone.


Memorable vacation!

5 on August 18, 2010

Staying with you and Pierre was like visiting our favorite aunt and uncle. You just couldn't do enough for us. The home grown and home baked food (especially the bread) was delicious! Your knowledge of the area was so helpful. Not only could you purchase the Niagara adventure tickets for us,but while we were enjoying the sights,you made dinner reservations for us at a wonderful restaurant overlooking the Falls. Thank you for making our trip so memorable! John and Angie and Ellen


Wonderful week-end!

Home..at last!

5 on April 19, 2010

This was the most beautiful final touch to a fairy tale wedding day. From the moment we entered the front door it felt like home. The room was beautiful, clean, the grounds absolutely breath taking. I felt like I was at my grandma's house. I will never forget you Anne Marie. The Calberry's

About the innkeepers

Both our backgrounds and interests lie in historical building preservation and conservation given our penchant for buying old houses, former fire stations, and former churches to rehab. When not in reno mode, we are also interested in organic gardening, reading, music, bicycling, skiing, playing tennis, travelling, nature, and attending live events. Our style is casual, colourful and fun with the odd bit of quirky in our living spaces.
