Welcome to our Bed and Breakfast in Dundas The Homestead 1867. This house offers two gracious bedrooms with a shared luxury bathroom. The house was built in 1867 and it was owned by one family who lived there for many generations. We will continue their tradition in being stewards of the house. It is a pleasure to share the history with you.We hope that you enjoy its classical decor and the beautiful garden. This bed & breakfast is an ideal place for a short break or longer stay in the Heritage District of downtown Dundas. It is just a few steps to a great variety of shops and restaurants. McMaster University in Hamilton is a short ten minutes drive away from our house. The Dundas Valley is very attractive for all kinds of outdoor activities. Hopefully we can welcome you in The Homestead 1867.

I've written reviews before, but this one will be a bit longer because you absolutley must stay here.
Our family of 4 just returned from staying at this amazing B an B.. With the 2 bedrooms, we also got 2 full and newly renovated bathrooms, our own living and dining rooms. PLUS access to a fully equipped kitchen all separated from the owners unit.
Located in a quiet, mature neighbourhood, walking distance to cute downtown Dundas, graced with a small wooden front porch with 4 comfortable chairs.
Keyless entry..OMG.. no key worries!
Immaculate!
The bedding and linens were high quality and extremely comfortable, refreshed daily if desired.
Nespresso coffee and bottled water included throughout the day..
Mr. Ton has thought of everything. Clearly, they are seasoned travelers who know how to discreetly pamper.
Piece de resistance: BREAKFAST... Abundant buffet and a warm course , crepes, omlets, eggs accompanied by FRESHLY (I saw the juicer) squeezed OJ.
Don't stay at a hotel! This was a very rewarding experience.

Such a beautiful, well restored 154+ year old home with the most wonderful Dutch host, Ton.

We stayed 3 nights and it exceeded our expectations.

Ton was a gracious and accommodating host and made our stay perfect. His daily breakfast was delicious with daily features to change it up. More food than we could eat!

The home is beautifully restored and the grounds were very well manicured. This is the best location possible on one of the nicest streets, and less than a 3 min walk to the main, downtown Dundas strip cafes and restaurants

The bedroom and bed were very comfortable as we slept peacefully each night without hearing any sounds from outside or the home itself.

We were also conveniently located only 5 min drive away from the wedding venue we were attending. And close to highway access so we could explore Niagara wine region.

If you are coming to Dundas, don’t hesitate and stay here!!!

We would highly recommend for anyone

Highly recommend Homestead B&B in Dundas, Ontario. It is a beautiful home on a quiet street within steps of downtown Dundas. We stayed in bedroom on main floor near dining room and super quiet with ensuite bathroom. The breakfast is plentiful and delicious. You could not ask for a better host than Tom. Wonderful stay for our anniversary!

Stayed here in August 2017 for 6 nights. our host Ton was great, nothing being too much trouble. We stayed in the Garden Room which is spacious and has everything you could need. A very good breakfast too!
The location is great for the centre of Dundas, easy to walk into and around the town. We will definitely stay here again next time we visit our family in Dundas.

This place is just wonderful. The building and decor are historic (from 1867), tasteful, and beautiful.
The host, Ton, is gracious and welcoming, and was able to give us anything we asked for with a smile.
The rate was very reasonable, considering the quality of the place, and the delicious breakfast. Ton made us a great fruit salad, omelettes, fresh-squeezed orange juice, croissants, ham and cheese on fresh bread, and more. Yum!
The beds are comfortable, and the rooms are spacious. And being a 2 minute walk from charming, historic Dundas is a treat. And it's about a 12-minute drive to downtown Hamilton.
Highly recommended!

This small B&B is located in a peaceful residential area in Dundas, Ontario. It is a very beautiful and tastefully decorated small house, everything spick and span. It has only two guest rooms, each with a bathroom. The Dutch owner makes you feel at home instantly. Breakfast is nice, wireless and outside pool are available. You can find it on Google street view.

I stayed at the Homestead 1867 for three nights whilst visiting the Hamilton area on business. And what a lovely place! I felt very at home and the bedroom and ensuite bathroom were immaculate. The only potential downside for some guests could be there wasn't a TV in the room, but I'm not sure if this was the case for all rooms, and to be honest it's not something I missed. The house is beautiful, peaceful and has a lot of character. The B&B guests have access to the whole ground floor, which meant as I was the only one staying I had it all to myself! Ton was polite and welcoming, yet not overwhelming. He was very helpful and even called me in England before my stay to assist with my credit card payment and was very happy to let myself and my colleague use the dining area to work during the day. The local area is lovely, with a park just around the corner (which I liked to run in) and only a street away from the main restaurants and shops. I hope to visit again one day and I can thoroughly recommend this place to anyone staying around the Dundas area. Thank you Ton!

My husband and I recently spent one evening at The Homestead 1867 and wished we could stay longer. We will surely be back. The home is gorgeous and completely immaculate. The rooms are all just beautifully decorated, and filled with lovely antiques. Lots of common space for the guests. We were the only people staying that evening and thus had the washroom to ourselves, however we did not feel that sharing it would be a hardship. There is also the option to pay extra and have it to yourself.

Ton is a wonderful host, very warm, welcoming and respectful. The breakfast was phenomenal. We were almost embarrassed by the selection and quality of the meal - what an effort! Ton went out of his way to make sure I had delicious gluten free options. There was fresh fruit, a selection of breads and pastries, ham, cheese, yogurt, made to order omelets and fresh squeezed orange juice... it was one of the best breakfasts we have had in years!

We will certainly stay again someday.
