The house was beautiful inside and out. Barbara was a very grautious host and very knowledgeable of the area. Being locals ourselves we will be back again for a weekend getaway away from the kids

Fantastic stay in Niagara On The Lake

This was our first bed and breakfast and first visit to Niagara On The Lake. This Inn is so wonderful I cannot express my gratitude to the innkeepers enough. Picture perfect, spotless, great food, cozy room, and upscale all the way !! Mike

Perfect Anniversary

4.6 on June 11, 2008

My husband and I stayed at the post house inn 2 weeks ago for our 2 wedding anniversary! From the moment we walked in - we were greeted and taken care of. Not knowing what to expect (first B&B) we were blown away. our room was to die for, it was steps from the main street, and our host did everything to make us feel welcomed and sat down with us to show us a map of all the great restaurants, wineries and attractions to think about..We are planning on doing again next year :-)
