This inn has three rooms in a vintage home lovingly cared for by its owners. We ended up in room 3. It is a smallish room with one chair and a tiny WC In the room and a huge modern private bath down the hall. I believe the other two rooms are more spacious. Some will love the room. We... More

We returned last night from a three day stay at The Historic Lyons House and three plays at the Shaw Festival in Niagara on the Lake. The theater performances were extremely well done.

We had the great pleasure of celebrating our friend's 65th b-day at Historic Lyons House. The Bed & Breakfast is impeccably clean and beautifully decorated. Breakfast each morning was delicious, prepared with an artistic touch, and bursting with taste and colour. My favorites were the blueberry pancakes served with maple syrup and pecans :).
