Historic Lyons House
Reviewed 8 January 2013

This home offers tasteful and welcoming surroundings with a subdued elegance. The proprietors are lovely. They are welcoming, anxious to provide information and opinions without taking over a relaxed weekend of meandering and tasting.
The breakfasts were delicious and presented charmingly.
This is a wonderful opportunity to stay in the much loved home of two visual and hsopitality artists.

Room Tip: One room has a detached, but beautiful, bath. You may wish to request en suite.

Awesome stay! The Lyons House is a beautiful historic house, just seconds away from downtown NOL. Howie and his lovely wife made our stay - they were very friendly, welcoming and helped us plan out all of the details of our stay. The breakfasts were excellent! Howie makes a mean eggs benedict. The room we stayed in had big windows with lots of light, a super comfortable bed and lots of complimentary bottled water which helped after over indulging in wine (my boyfriend made me write this last point :)). All in all, the Lyons House is a beautiful choice for a weekend getaway and we will for sure return again.

What can we say about this place!! This was a surprise birthday weekend and from the minute we walked through the door it was like coming home to visit family. Howie and Yolanta made you feel so welcomed that at the end of your stay you did not want to leave. Howie planned our package on meals, the Holiday House Tours and wineries. Everything met our expectations and beyond. The historic Lyons house is spectacular with a beautiful sitting room and dining room. Howie prepares an amazing breakfast to start off your day and fills you in on amazing details of the area. Fabulous yogurt with fruit and granola followed ham and cheese omelet, and delicous toast on first morning, followed by fresh fruit and amazing Eggs Benedict on the second morning. The finishing touch was hot chocolate from Yolanta when we finished our Candelight Walk on Friday evening. Rooms were beautiful, having an ensuite was convenient and the fireplace was an enjoyable and an added bonus. The Lyons House is conveniently located within walking distance of restaurants and shopping so you hardly need to use your car. So my suggestion is to not look any further as this B&B has it all. Can hardly wait to visit in the summer when their gardens are in bloom!!!

Loved this place! First time we stayed here. Host and Hostess, Howie and Yolanta were very friendly and helpful. They gave us tons of coupons to use for visiting wineries and dining. Howie was great at plotting our winery itinerary. The BnB is conveniently located close to the main street so hardly used the car. Rooms were comfortable. We had an ensuite bathroom which was convenient and a fireplace. Breakfast delicious! Water/juice/pop provided as an added courtesy in mini fridge in hall. A feeling of a home away from home if that is what you are looking for-we took advantage of low season rates! Defintely a must visit if you are going to Niagara on the Lake. While staying there-visit The Sanctuary Spa if you would like to add spa services to your visit-excellent service and staff! An enjoyable couples weekend for us!

My time in Niagara -on-the-Lake was an amazing experience mostly because we enjoyed staying at the Historic Lyons House so much. The couple who own the house are extremely nice, very informative and enhanced our stay immensely, they told us of events to go to, restaurants they found to be the best and places to visit. They prepare an amazing breakfast every morning and their rooms are the nicest I personally have ever stayed in. The inn is directly between the main road and the Pillar and Post which worked really well for us and is about a 5 minute bike ride to all of the restaurants and the shopping area. There is room enough to park and even to tie up bikes which we found really helpful and is on a side street so provides privacy while still being close to everything. I would suggest the Historic Lyons House before any other place we've stayed at in the Niagara area!

Spent a surprise weekend getaway at the fantastic Historic Lyons house. We were welcomed by the hosts and shown the beautiful sitting room and dining area. We stayed in the room titled Lady Catherine. Very pristine, very clean and very red – one of my favourite colours. I have a lot of allergies and the hosts were kind enough to work around my food restrictions for breakfast! I highly HIGHLY suggest the pancakes. Howard and Yolanda gave us a lot of winery suggestions and planned a route for us complete with coupons! If you are looking for a restful and relaxing B&B this is the place to be! Excellent stay!

Our 20th anniversary was spent at Historic Lyons House and Niagara on the Lake. We had a wonderful time in Niagara on the Lake and the stay at Historic Lyons House was second to none. Howie's eggs Benedict was delicious. We were treated like family by Howie. Can't wait to return!
