  Lakeview Bed & Breakfast

        Built in 1880 our home is one of Niagara's "Chautauqua" homes.  Although the Chautauqua ceased operation in 1900, Lakeview continued as a summer residence until 1956.  First called the Swiss Chalet guests were welcomed during the 1920's and 30's for afternoon tea and lunches. Rooms were also available for the weary traveler.

        This year marks the sixty-fourth year that our family has owned Lakeview.  Jim and I purchased it from his parents in 1984 and have welcomed Bed and Breakfast guests since the summer of 1987.  This year is also our twenty-seventh year that we have greeted visitors to Niagara-on-the-Lake.

        Your day begins with a full breakfast served in the sun room overlooking Lake Ontario.  Your meal will include fruit in season, coffee, tea, juice, homemade breads and muffins, Niagara jams and jellies, and entree.  After dining, the town is just a short walk or ride away. 

        The way to see Niagara-on-the-Lake is at a leisurely and thoughtful pace.  Let our home be your central holiday location for winery tours, golf, cycling, dining and of course the Shaw Festival.  There are so many things to do in Niagara-on-the-Lake.  Taste a new wine at one of our many award winning wineries.  Take a walking tour from Canada's first historic museum.  Step into history at Fort George.  Our fort is central to the history of the region.  Re-enactments are staged throughout the year. 

        Our activities page will link you to many of Niagara's best attractions.  If you need reservations, we can make them for you.  Just let us know.

        If you need to check your email, we also offer a secure wifi link in every room.  Sunsets are spectacular when viewed from the verandah or in our Adorondack chairs on the front lawn.

        We look forward to welcoming you to Niagara-on-the-Lake.  Let us make your trip to Niagara-on-the-Lake a holiday to remember.
