We had such an amazing stay at The Red Coat. The location is perfect, just in between Niagara Falls and Niagara on the Lake. Sandra is so friendly and she was very accommodating for breakfast. I have an egg allergy and she took on the challenge and made me wonderful breakfasts each morning, it really shows that she values the people staying there and she is open to a challenge! We stayed in the Brock Suite and it was very spacious, had a nice balcony and a lovely bathroom. The property is well maintained and has many lovely gardens, and the house was very clean and well kept. I will definitely be coming back anytime I am staying in the Niagara area!

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Red Coat B&B. Sandra was extremely friendly. Breakfasts were excellent. Sandra made sure to accommodate our dietary needs. The house was clean and welcoming. It was located on a quiet street about half-way between Niagara Falls and Niagara on the Lake -- a perfect location for us. We stayed in the Sheaffe Loft which was a bit "quirky" but perfect for our needs. I suggest you discuss with the owner before booking that room. The room is large with a private deck. However, it is two flights up with low sloped ceilings on the sides of the room, and the tub is in the bedroom area. Not for everyone, but fine for us. We will definitely return.

Thank you for your review Harold. Yes, the Sheaffe's Loft is located on the third floor and not recommended for those who have a hard time with stairs. The Loft is our largest room; it extends the length of the original house. The jacuzzi tub is exposed to the bedroom area, however, there is a divider that can be placed in front of the tub for privacy while bathing. There is no stand-alone shower in this room but there is a shower wand. The tub is under a slanted wall and therefore one can not stand up but it sure is cosy for a jacuzzi bath! It is a beautiful room to relax after a day of site seeing, wine touring, biking, hiking, or the theatre; whether one relaxes on the private balcony with a glass of wine or relaxing in the tub before bed this room is sure to please. So glad that you both enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward to hosting you again in our home the next time you visit the Niagara area! Enjoy the rest of your summer.

We like to to bicycle so this was an ideal place to stay and visit the local wineries and bicycle to Niagara Falls and the surrounding area. it was comfortable, quiet and affordable and the breakfasts were excellent. Sandra and Keith are wonderful hosts.

Thank you David! It was nice to see you both again. Glad that you brought the bikes to explore the area. It is a nice area to bike along the Niagara River, stop at a winery or two on your way to Historic Old Town of NOTL or just stop and sit along the river to relax and take in the beauty. Until next time! Enjoy your summer.

We had an excellent stay at The Red Coat. Being between Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake, the location was perfect for us as it allowed us to easily split our time in the area between both major hubs. The place was very well maintained. It's clean and modern, yet charmingly old-fashioned at the same time. We really enjoyed our private balcony at night too. Sandra, our host, was very kind and helpful, yet not intrusive in any way. And the breakfast out on the front porch was fantastic! The Red Coat is definitely a nice place to stay at a very reasonable price.

We greatly enjoyed our stay at The Red Coat, which is at a convenient location just a short distance from the theatre, restaurants, and shopping in Niagara-on-the-Lake and the many vineyards and wineries in the area. Sandra, the host, was warm and welcoming, and my room on the upper floor of the B&B—the Sheaffe Loft—was a lovely, clean, comfortable, and spacious suite with a balcony. The breakfasts Sandra prepared were delicious; and she also kindly, graciously, and skillfully accommodated my dietary requirements. Other members of my family had reserved the other two rooms, so we had the whole B&B to ourselves during the weekend. One of the members of our family kindly thought to bring charcuterie and wine for lunch, which we enjoyed while sitting on the larger balcony of the Brock Suite. The entire weekend was really lovely and memorable. We hope to return to The Red Coat again next year, and I would highly recommend this lovely place to anyone who is planning a trip to the area.

We cannot say enough wonderful things about this bnb. Starting with our host, Sandra was wonderful. She gave us great tips on parking at the falls and spots that are less crowded from tourists. We stayed in the Sheaffe Loft, and it was fantastic. The tub was incredible for relaxing and we also enjoyed some time on the private balcony with a beautiful view. The room was so spacious and the bits of exposed brick really brought us the feeling of staying in a historical home. There were so many thoughtful touches, likes the wine glasses/bottle opener and chocolates on our pillow case. We stayed for four nights, and breakfast each morning was delicious. We had dishes like blueberry stuffed french toast and quiche. Sandra also baked extra muffins each morning for us to take on the road. Appreciated the sign up sheet for breakfast times and the option to enjoy our meal on the porch. The location or the Red Coat is perfectly situated between the Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake, both being a very short drive. We loved having our accommodations set back a little ways from the tourist crowds. It made our time enjoying a meal/drink on the patio so peaceful! Highly recommend choosing the Red Coat for your Niagara trip!

Very convenient location (15 minutes from dozens of Niagara on the Lake vineyards and wineries, and just 30 minutes to Niagara Falls.) Sandra and Keith were great hosts; easy conversation and graciously accommodating of our multiple dietary needs. The room (Brock Suite) was spacious, clean, and comfortable! This is definitely on our return visit list!

Thank you! So glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes, we are only 10 kms to the beautiful water falls of Niagara and 10 kms to Historic Old Town of Niagara on the Lake. We are the perfect spot if you plan to do both areas. I enjoyed our conversations on the porch and look forward to seeing you the next time you visit Niagara! Enjoy the rest of your summer!

The Red Coat B&B was my first stay at a B&B. I would highly recommend staying here!! I've visited Niagara On The Lake many times before but have always stayed in motels. In the past several years though the motel quality has drastically decreased. No upkeep, less perks and the cost is still rising. I took a chance and booked The Red Coat B&B for my girlfriend's birthday getaway. Sandra and Keith were amazing hosts!!! The conversations were very pleasurable, the accommodations very, very nice and the breakfast was fantastic!! The location was perfect being in-between Niagara On The Lake and Niagara Falls. We will definitely be visiting Sandra and Keith and at their Red Coat B&B!!! Oh, btw, we stayed in the loft which has a wonderful view of the Brock Monument and the Niagara River from the balcony. Thank you Sandra and Keith for making our stay so special!!!

I stayed at The Red Coat in January 2017 and again in January 2022 at the end of walking treks on the Bruce Trail. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. Keith and Sandra were very hospitable and helpful . The Red Coat is ideally situated for walking on The Bruce Trail and the village has many historical sites of interest.
