Stayed here for a couple of nights with family and parents on a trip to niagara. Being vegetarians and a family with special dietary needs, Yvette always accommodated our requests with a smile. We usually ordered takeouts and really appreciated the mircrowave and the fridge available for use by the house guests.
There is a lovely porch in the upper level where you could head to your early-morning-before-breakfast-wake-me-up tea/coffee. More uniquely there were two dining arrangements. If the weather was a bit chilly, the breakfast was set inside other wise it would be laid out on the porch where you can enjoy the warm sun.
There is a small pond in the adjoining garden where you could sit down and talk to the fishes as I did with my little daughter for a good part of the day !
The best part of the stay however were the countless knick knacks that were strewn all over the house. I enjoyed observing / reading them as I moved about.
We stayed in rooms 1 and 2. The bed in room 1 was quite springy but the bed in room 2 was very sturdy. The only thing that I wish could have happened was if Yvette could have drummed up something vegetarian for breakfast as I loved the presentation of the french toast that was served for the other guests.
The house is located not too far from the falls and it would be a good walk if you decided to head out on your own. Parking seemed ample. Joe and Yvette have done a fab job setting up the house and I am sure you will enjoy your stay here as I did mine.
