My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this B&B. We wished we could have extended our stay. Our hosts Bob & Julie were friendly, inviting and very helpful about places to see and things to do in Niagara-on-the Lake. We stayed in Sarah's room located on the second floor; the room which was on the small side but was very clean, decorated with cozy quilts and a comfortable bed. The bathroom had a shower(no tub) but was well appointed with high end soaps and toiletries and hair dryer. I took advantage of the early quiet morning to read a book in the upstairs sitting area. A small refrigerator was stocked with soft drinks and water as well as a basket of snacks. Free wireless internet was available (I did not use) magazines and newspapers were available to read. Our breakfast was served in the home's comfortable dining room. We were served sweet baked goods, a fresh fruit cup and belgian waffles made from a delicious and healthy "secret" recipe served with warm maple of blueberry syrup. The property is on the small side but has a lovely flower garden and a front verandah with comfortable couch and chairs. We rented bikes from a local rental shop and had a wonderful day cycling and stopping off at the wineries and riding back through the town. This town has truly kept its charm and we are hoping to return in the fall to experience the Niagara Grape & Wine festival in the fall and will certainly consider returning to the Brass Bell.

Built in the latter part of the last century, The Brass Bell Bed & Breakfast is named after the ship's bell of sea-going vessels, Thus the decor is a mix of contemporary and traditional styles with a light nautical touch (Bob is a retired Navy Commander). Our beautifully appointed rooms all have ensuite bathrooms, two have four-poster queen-sized beds and one has a king-sized sleigh bed. ... more less
