First-Rate Historic House and Hosts

5 on July 03, 2016

Traveling thru Canada from eastern New York to western Michigan, we opted to stop one night in Niagara Falls, Ontario at the Park Place B&B. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time: highlites were the turreted house and the hosts. We loved the architecture of the historic house; the porch off our room on the second floor was delightful. The hosts were super: friendly, efficient, and anxious to please. Gary and Carolyn suggested an Italian restaurant, and we followed that with an hour admiring the Falls downtown. Breakfast in the morning could not have been better. Sincere thanks to our Canadian hosts!

Magnificant B&B

What a wonderful two day stay we had wish it could have been longer. Thank you Gary and Carolyn for making us feel at home. Great food too. Really enjoyed Brandy....Close to the falls and great dinning....

Relaxing getaway

4.0 on January 23, 2012

My husband and I just arrived home from a lovely stay at the Park Place. Gary and Carolyn were extremely attentive to all our needs which made the stay exceptional. The breakfasts in the dining room were fabulous and cozy with the fireplace and lovely surroundings. The Queen Anne Suite was beautiful not only because of the great bathroom and kingsize bed, but the view over the Niagara River and the morning sun made it extra special. We would definitely stay there again.

A Wonderful Winter Retreat

A true gem just a casual walk away from the heavy tourist district. We wanted a place to stay that would be just as much an attraction as the Falls themselves and that's what we got with the Park Place B&B! First, the rooms: two rooms in the main house both very distinct yet appealing in their own way. The Queen Anne has a smaller, cozy bedroom which glows with natural light and soft coloured decorations. The 4-post bed is super comfy! The highlight of the room, though, is the elegant ensuite bathroom with a centrally positioned jacuzzi tub, heated floors and gel fireplace. Extremely romantic and intimate lighting as well. The Prince of Wales is a more classic style with a much larger, darker bedroom. It has a large 40 inch TV and a lovely wood-burning firplace. The ensuite bathroom is a bit more dated than the one in the Queen Anne but it has a whirlpool tub and soothing sauna. Just as much a highlight of this B&B are the hosts and owners Gary and Carolyn. Genuinely friendly and very knowledgeable of the area, it was so easy to ask them for advice about dining and sightseeing and to make simple requests during our stay. It's cliche to say, but it really did feel like we were staying at a friend's house and being totally spoiled by them. Their service was on par as any high-rated hotel and much more personal. Breakfast was delicious (french toast and quiche were both amazing) and served right at our door. The B&B is about a 15 minute walk from the centre of the tourist area but for dinner dining choices, Queen street a couple of blocks north offers some less tourist trap-like choices at more reasonable prices. Or just ask Carolyn and Gary for a suggestion! Would go back again during any season!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much, for taking the time to review our B&B. thank you also, for the wonderful , positive comments. Gary and I are glad that your get away was a success. I am sorry this response is so tardy. I hope you will forgive my oversight. Sincerely, Carolyn and Gary Burke

Romantic getaway for our anniversary

4.4 on December 05, 2011

Gary and Carolyn were very nice hosts. The suite was cozy, the bedroom was a little on the smaller side, but the beautiful bathtub with jets and sizeable bathroom made up for it. The king size bed was a beautiful hand carved four poster, the bed was comfortable! We saw the other suite, it was beautiful, loved the size of the bedroom there, but prefer the bathroom in our room. I would definitely go back there, to either room, and I definitely recommend it to others. The stuffed French toast was my fave, although, the other breakfast selections were tasty and hit the spot.

We will be back!

My husband and I enjoyed a romantic get away weekend to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary (11/11/11) and we enjoyed every minute of our stay! Gary and Carolyn helped us with reservations, directions and advice on dining out. They were there, but not intrusive. The Queen Anne bedroom was amazing, and, well, the bathroom makes it :-) The stuffed french toast was very good, really, everything they served was delicious. If we end up in Niagara Falls again, we would definately stay at this B&B again.
